Buy it now – design board
I recently did a design board that was created from resources available to every person – not through a designer. I had a lot of fun creating the design board and have decided to do another. All the elements of this design board are readily available for purchase – so if you like it, you can go out and get it!
Modern Out of Africa (the movie was a wonderful inspiration for me when I was young) Bedroom
We start again with the walls, in this case I decided against wallpaper (though I had a really big argument with myself about that) and went with a deep green paint on the walls: Benjamin Moore 2044-10 “Green”. This color makes me relax and think calming thoughts of oceans, forests, mountains, and a peaceful nature.
Next is the bed which comes to us from West Elm – normally I would suggest curtains to get that Out of Africa feel but I love the way it looks open too.
Some very crisp and clean bedding from Anthropologie.
This dresser from Z Gallerie is just the right mix of glam and safari camp with the mirrored drawer fronts and cerused oak frame, the X shape on legs (repeating on mirror) makes one think of the campaign chairs and travel items from that time period too – only modernized.
A bench at the end of the bed is not only cozy but functional too – a place to sit for the on and off of shoes!
Bedside tables complete the furnishings – these from Anthropologie go right along with our African Safari inspiration.
a rug (or three – layering them would definitely add to the sense of being in the wild) from West Elm.
Finally, some artwork to keep us inspired….
I think you get the idea….
