Hello Coral

Hello y'all! Today I want to share a couple of things that are buzzing around in my head. My mother's birthday is coming up and we have been chatting about doing a few changes to her place. She will be away for a couple of days and I hope to sneak in and do the work while she is away. I love surprises, so I hope she will appreciate it. It is mainly her bedroom that is in dire need of some TLC. She is a very picky lady, so I decided to make a mood board for a "client". And yes, I will be pretending that this is just for the blog so I can get a feel for what she thinks of my ideas. She doesn't read my blog, so I doubt she will see it, but here are my thoughts.

She is not a huge fan of pink, but likes red, so I figured since coral is so hot right now, I would go down that avenue. Here are some of my thoughts for her room redesign.
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Number 1 is the paint colour I have chosen for her room - Balboa Mist by Benjamin Moore. I love this colour. It is a combination of a light grey and beige. I am looking to try my hand at a DIY tufted headboard. Here is the fabric (3) I am thinking to use and I will make some diy curtains (4). And last but not least, I will add lots of colour throughout the room with the different accents.

I really like what I pulled together, but most importantly I hope she will like it as well. Will keep you posted, but in the mean time what do you think? Would you like a bedroom that would look like this?

Have a fabulous day!

  1. I love the mood board and your choices. I'm sure she's going to love it!

  2. I love the board -- I too, am trying to add touches of coral to a guest room, but am finding it hard to find the accent pieces! I hope she likes it!

  3. LOVE the mood board and the coral is an inspired choice! I'm dying for that lamp ...

    Hope she loves it! If not, you want to come to my house and do over a room? :)

  4. Thank you so much for all your sweet comments. You guys made my day! I am so happy that you like the mood board. I want to create a nice and relaxing place for her. Wish me luck in accomplishing the look that I am going for. Thanks again!

  5. Very elegant Beatrice!! I would love to live in this bedroom:)

  6. Love the colour combination - it will look beautiful and what a wonderful surprise!


Thank you so much for your comments! You've made my day!
