French Country Bedroom Mood Board

French Country Bedroom Mood Board

Last week I asked readers to chime in on words that described their style and I would start building mood boards based off of them. My Kiwi friend Amy from New Zealand who was one of my dearest friends in college left the words "Rustic, Country, French, Industrial."

Amy this room is for you! 

When I think of French Country, I generally think of soft, muted tones, natural and rustic woods, some chippy paint, ticking stripes and needlepoint, and gorgeous natural linens. I'm including a picture of the linens alone in this post because I honestly cannot get over how pretty they are. Price wise, they are comparable to what you would purchase at West Elm or Pottery Barn. Not necessarily cheep, but not outrageously expensive either. 

Since I went with those gorgeous and unique rustic steel sconces on the wall, I decided to go with a chair rather than a traditional nightstand for this room since a lamp wouldn't need to rest on it. It's the perfect little spot to set a class of water and book once you shut the lights out at night or you know, also your phone. 

If I were to design this room in real life, I would probably look for a more rustic pendant or rough this one up a bit, and I would also hunt down an antique dresser to add a little more age and patina to the space. There's nothing like adding some antiques to your home to give it a little soul.

Sometimes I can whip these mood boards out in a couple of hours and sometimes they take me forever. This one took forever, and I'm still not sure I'm 100% happy with it, but deadlines be calling, yo. Part of the reason I think I've agonized over this one so much is that I'm using it as inspiration for our own bedroom. I've already purchased the West Elm duvet and have been trying to figure out which way I want to go with the rest of the bedding. I don't know if we'll pull off this whole mood board, but I think we'll go for some of the pieces to freshen and cozy up our bedroom for the winter months. I've got to say, those Moroccan fur pillows made my heart do a little skippity skip when I first saw them. They are a little bit of a splurge, but I'm thinking they just might be worth it. What do you think?

Four things:

1. I've been wondering if you could design a complete room from Amazon, and it turns out you can! I challenged myself with this mood board to only source from there. 

2. I used pink in this mood board and I rarely ever use pink.

3. I went all modern and Palm Springy/Glam, which is totally not my style, but I like making myself get out of my comfort zone to see what I can create! 

4. I'm actually really digging those side chairs. They'd look great in a dining room!

Hope you guys enjoy this mood board, and don't forget we offer e-design packages if you need help designing a room for your home!
