Moody Bedroom Inspiration

In my non-blog life I run a marketing consulting company and we have been super busy which has put me a little behind on some (OK, a lot) of home projects so I’m going to have just salivate over other finished, beautiful spaces in the meantime. Blogger, SFgirlbybay posted a great home tour and I fell in love with this moody and beautiful bedroom.

Moody Bedroom

It’s moody, dark, edgy and yet somehow, a little romantic. It’s a beautifully styled room that would have intimidated me in the past until I started breaking down designer rooms the room piece by piece. I love this room and would love to take pretty much every single piece but I’m not entirely sure that the husband would be OK with the neon sign.

So what are your favorite pieces? Would you put a neon sign in your bedroom? I’ve already convinced the husband that we should paint our room the glossy flint color, now to cajole him into agreeing to the swan print.

Having Humor in Your Home

Funny Anniversary GiftThis past weekend was my 6th anniversary and let me tell you, after a few years it’s hard to be as original when it comes to gifts. So I found this picture, laughed heartily in the antique store, and bought for my husband to celebrate our love. It’s ridiculous but it’s “us” and I know we’ll giggle every time we see it.

I love seeing humorous or odd art in people’s homes because it give a little sneak peek into their personalities. The best way I’ve seen it done is having the art tucked into a powder room, hallway or office. That way, your art doesn’t come on too strong and only the people who are paying attention will get to enjoy the added bonus.

Funny Art BathroomSo after scouring the web, I’ve found some funny/quirky prints that I think would be great in most any home.

I’d love to have this hanging in my bedroom for laughs and the husband thought it was pretty spot on.

This print combines my husband’s obsessions with all things burgers and all things space. More on the quirky than funny side but would still be a great surprise addition to a hallway or office.

Funny Bathroom ArtThis last print would be great in any bathroom but especially a kid’s bathroom. It’s just a wee bit cheeky and is great for those little spots in your bathrooms that need something on the wall.  Any of you have something funny hanging up on your walls? I’m getting really excited to move into the new house and get our antique art up in the office!
