May Mood Board: Boho Pottery Barn Girls Bedroom

Guys, it has been awhile!!! With moving in April and the Launch of Whitken & Co., life kind of took off and the blog kind of had to take a back seat for a little while. I am excited to be back here though, and have several mood boards lined up to share with you as well as sharing more of the #therobertleerobinsonhouse and our current client projects! 

This mood board, however, has nothing to do with any of those things! Let me let you in on a little secret: I often will shop the kids or teens section of a brand and incorporate items from them into my "grown up" designs. Often you can find some really great pieces at more affordable prices than you will find in the regular home section. For example, check out the beautiful quilt comforter in this mood board! It is gorgeous, and I wouldn't be ashamed at all to have that on my bed!  

PB Teen is having a huge sale on a lot of their items for dorm rooms right now., and this board, as well as the guys version that went out to email subscribers, is built completely from their teen section. I'm kind of in love with this girls room and the guys version ain't half bad either!

Pickens Laundry/Mudroom Room Before & After

This is another room that we just got to freshen up with paint, but I wanted to share it with you guys to share some of the ideas I had for the space in case it might be something you can try in your own laundry room or enclosed porch.

Like the office, this room used to be a side porch, but unlike the office it isn't heated or cooled. Before we walled up the door and window in the master bedroom, this is the room you could look out and see, and as you can see it was a lovely view.

The yellow was bright and cheery in this room but just too much for this little space for me personally. I wanted simple and clean. We went with the same white that we used in the living room and hallway. (You can read why I love white here and how to make it feel warm and cozy here)

From the time we moved in I always pictured this room a crisp white. It's the laundry/mudroom, and I wanted it to feel really crisp and clean and fresh. Kind of like clean laundry except hopefully without the crisp part.

If we had stayed in this house for awhile, I planned on planting an herb wall because I love using fresh herbs when I cook and it looks pretty, and adding in shelving for extra storage of larger kitchen and decor items and probably shoes on the bottom shelves. Below are some very rough mockups of what I had in mind.

I hope that helps you guys see a little of what I had in mind for this little workroom and hopefully it might give you some ideas for your own. I think I have just 3 more before and after posts left on the Pickens' House and than it's onto other projects and discussions!
