There’s nothing more cozy than a cool night in the fall snuggled up in bed with a good book, your favorite record on the turntable and, to top it off, a hot cup of cocoa (with or without marshmallows) sitting on your nightstand. This all sounds wonderful… until you look up and realize that your bedroom just doesn’t fit the mood, the season or even your personal style anymore. When that happens it’s time to find some new inspiration, so here you go!
Wallpaper is back, but this time, it’s even cooler. You can choose from metallic paint designs on colored wallpaper, large pattern designs or unusual, textured wallpaper that can make a great conversation starter when friends come to visit. As always, just be sure you love it before you give it a green light, because once it’s up it’s not coming down easily.
A Little Bit of Paradise
The tropical motif is in, which is perfect in South Texas, where we have high temps throughout the year. Tropical patterns on sheets and comforters are a fun way to alter the look of your bedroom. These looks aren’t over the top – they’re much more subdued than what you might expect. Think dark blue with white palm fronds. Add some tropical looking plants and some artistic bamboo pieces or Hawaiian artwork and voila!
Vintage is always in, but can take some time and effort to do well. By shopping at garage sales or online you can find some beautiful vintage pieces, like an antique chaise lounge or 1950’s brass Hollywood Regency headboard that will make you feel like you just stepped into a Humphry Bogart or Cary Grant film, and there’s nothing wrong with that!
