The Next Mood Board Monday: Beautiful Bedding

6.09.2010

Hi! Sorry for the rather sporadic posting the last few months, things have been busy round here. But, I think its time for another Mood Board Monday, don't you?! (Thanks for waiting so patiently since our last, really exciting West Elm sponsored MBM party.) Unfortunately, this one is back to normal...no gift cards up for grabs or anything...just some wonderful peeps who enjoy shopping the internet with an imaginary, unlimited budget and putting together a space they love all starting from a couple of inspirational items:)

Does Monday, June 28th work for everyone? This time, if its ok with you guys, I'm going to try something slightly different. Let's use bedding as our inspiration..which means we'll all be designing bedrooms. But I think it'll be cool to still see how much variety and creativity we get even when all working on the same kind of room. Any objections?

I'm also going to include 4 different bedding options, instead of just 2, as your inspiration. I like them all for different reasons and I didn't feel like stressing myself out trying to narrow them down to only a couple (so hopefully there's something in here for everyone!). They are all from different sources and a variety of price points, just to show how much is out there and how a gorgeous room does not necessarily need to start with something really expensive.

So, choose one of the following bed linens as your jumping off point. You don't have to include each and every piece that comes with some of the collections (like the shams, say) in your bedrooms, just at least use the duvet cover/comforter.


1. Barbara Barry "Poetical" Bedding Collection from Macy's


{Barbara Barry's Poetical bedding collection offers a refreshingly modern look that's a pleasure to come home to. Soothing grey provides the undertone for this elegant bedding, while embellished vinework in soft white adds visual intrigue.}


2. Bohemian Medallion Duvet Cover from Urban Outfitters


{Relaxed approach. An ornate, bohemian pattern perfectly tops this woven cotton duvet cover, complete with buttons at the bottom for easy opening.}


3. Serafina Floral Duvet Cover and Sham from Pottery Barn


{Using a saturated palette and bold scale, our studio artists painted the beautiful motif on our bedding one leaf and petal at a time.}


4. Persian Path Bed Linens from Horchow


{Bed linens in spice colors with touches of jade and plum catch the eye. Raised embroidery on the floral medallions adds tactile appeal.}


Hope you like one of them!!! For anyone unfamiliar with the concept of the Mood Board Monday McLinky party, here's the general idea (we would love to see some new faces and hopefully lots of you newbies back from last time):

1. This is not a mood board competition for designers (although designers are more than welcome to participate). This is a fun way to share all of the creativity out there and showcase how we can all start from one inspiration point and end up with a variety of ideas.
2. To be a participant, you need to create a complete mood board for a bedroom using one of the four inspiration bed linens shown here.
3. On Mood Board Monday party day (Monday, June 28th in this case), come back here to link up to the party. You will need to include your sources in your post and give a brief description of the room and how you used the inspiration item.


Check out our previous Mood Board Monday McLinky parties here:
MBM01, MBM02, MBM03, MBM04, MBM05, and MBM06.

Please spread the word...the more bloggers, the more creativity and beautiful rooms!! See you back here in a couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to all the different bedrooms that can spring from just one starting point:) Thanks, everyone!
