It's been a full year since I created this moodboard for my master bedroom and began the process of recreating this in real life, on a budget. I can honestly say I have come pretty far, but I am my own worst enemy here. You see every time I complete a project I feel the need to immediately rework things to better represent my original plan. Because quite frankly I LOVE this moodboard and want to have this exact feeling and design in my room and nothing else will do.
But I have run into a few problems that need addressing. And of course now I also need to undo all that has been done to stray from this plan in hopes that those things might work temporarily or in the stead of the original ideas, only to find that they don't! eek!
But I feel a little scattered so this post will act as an update and progress post for you guys, a more detailed breakdown of each item and an explanation of how I planned to put the inspiration image into use in real life, along with a 'to-do list' for me, to guide the remainder of this journey! yahoo!
Something to think about... Home decor can make or break the feel of your home. If you live in Australia you probably wouldn't have a log cabin themed house, it would be like carrying Australian Home Insurance on your California dream home. It just doesn't fit and offers very little functionality. Take time to consider your surroundings, so for example if you live in Arizona earth tones are very prevalent and Adobe themed houses are very common. If you live by the beach, white with playful "splashes" of navy or light blue can really accentuate the vibe and energy of your home when living by the coast.
This moodboard represents my California sunshine state love... it's beautiful, sunny and a little bit modern with some vintage all wrapped in this cute little package!
