It is time for one of my favorite parties - Mood Board Monday with Sarah at Pewter + Sage.  So this time we got to pick between some gorgeous bedding that Sarah selected.  After looking at the choices - I knew I had to do a room with the beautiful Serafina Floral Duvet Cover and Sham from Pottery Barn.

So this is what I came up with - check it out!

Let's break this down shall we?  For starters - I wanted to do a cool blue on the walls to play off the bright playful colors in the bedding.  The paint shade is Windmill Wings from Benjamin Moore.  I also added a cool blue quilt to the bed as well.

Next, I added a wrought iron black bed from Ikea.  Something about the bedding just screamed that it would be so classic with that sort of bedframe!  Some more black furniture and a large mirror (all from Ikea) grounds the room and keeps the playfulness in the accessories.  I flanked the 8-drawer black dresser with two silver lanterns and put a bright vase with a single bud on the nightstand (also from where? Ikea of course!).  Instead of a table lamp, I wanted to use wall sconces and I would duplicate that look on each side of the bed.  

Finally, I added a chaise (you all know how I love chaises) with a pretty pillow and throw.  For the floor, a neutral sisal rug adds a little texture.  Last but not least, a large 40x40 canvas of a red flower and the room is complete.  See below for a full breakdown on the items.

So what do you think? I think this would make a fantastic guest room or even a wonderful master. Head on over to Sarah's to check out the rest of the entries!

Looks like an inviting and restful guest bedroom. Gotta try Polyvore myself - this looks like fun!

You have such great style ! Couldn't you just design on Polyvore all day ! Love the subtle reds, whites, and blues. Perfect !

This turned out so pretty. It looks like it would be very relaxing.

Hey, Jess! Thanks for playing again! Love this room. I'm glad you went with the blue for the walls, I really like how they would make the bedding pop even more. You are right, it is perfect with the dark wrought iron bed!! Just got the Hemnes 8 drawer dresser in white from Ikea for our nursery - so psyched to put it together and see how it works! That chaise is a great addition to the room, it looks so relaxing. Another awesome job, thanks so much for participating:)
