It’s day 3 of my mood board bedroom series. I’ve already shown you a bohemian inspired guest room and a romantic master, but today I am going to share with you what I think defines my style the best: New Traditional. For me new traditional is leaning on historical design concepts but mixing them with something a little unexpected and more contemporary. In the picture below you can see I anchored the room with very European wood paneled furniture in an ebony glaze. What keeps the room for feeling stuffy is the simple patterns on the linens and the clean lines of the accessories. Also note that while the two major colors in the room, gray and teal, are historical in nature they are also very contemporary when used together.
If this room seems somewhat familiar it’s because it looks a lot like the Master Bedroom in our first house. We hope in the new house to continue with this look; however, in a much more elegant and upgraded manner.
- The medallion drapes in blue from Pottery Barn add a very traditional pattern to the room.
- Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore is a fantastic neutral griege that will go with almost any decor.
- The Lucianna Medallion bedding picks up the pattern from the drapes and mixed with white linens makes the bed very inviting. From Pottery Barn.
- The white horse from Belle and June adds a layer of orientalism to the room. A popular motif in European design.
- Typographical art is very modern and this one from Belle and June is also a little sentimental.
- I love this sphere because while it’s simple it’s also interesting and adds a layer of texture to the room. From Pottery Barn.
- This throw from Anthropologie ups the sophistication of this room with its ombre dye job.
- I love the sturdy masculine lines of this ebony glazed dresser from Pottery Barn.
- The side table from Cymax has classic turned legs and balances out the heaviness of the dresser and bed while the teal lamp from Anthropologie adds a little edginess to the room.
- I love the raised panels on this bed from Cymax. I’m already brainstorming a DIY version. The rug from Joss & Main has a traditional paisley pattern but in a large scale which keeps it looking fresh.
0. I always like to add something personal to a bedroom and this monogram artwork from Pottery Barn is just perfect,
