My temporary bedroom is horrific.  The walls are pea green with spackle patches everywhere. The space is overcrowded with art and furnishings from my loft.  Its all just a big mess right now.   A normal person would realize that its temporary and just live with it.  
I am not capable of such things.  I’ve decided to re-do it in hopes that once I actually make it pretty, I’ll move out.  That seems to be my modus operandi.  I’m embracing it.

Wanting my little room to feel like this…

It will be light pink.  I didn’t want to put my art in storage, so I have many more pieces than walls.  I think I’ll just layer it on heavy and try my hand at the gallery wall.  There will be lots of pattern because I think my next home will be more neutral, so I may as well flex my maximalist muscles while I’m “playing” here .  It will be girly, but not too much so.  Oh and the only money I plan to spend on the spruce-up is the cost of paint.

Now I just need to find the inspiration to paint!  (Oh and find a pink like…)

  1. Do it! You have amazing pieces that will compliment each other so well on a gallery wall. Ahhh, can’t wait to see.

  2. Love the idea…and I definitely agree you should cover the walls in art. How fun! can’t wait to see the result.

  3. All I want for Christmas is a pink room! Please maximalize the hell out of this space for us.

  4. Ok you’ve almost motivated me to do the same! Those photos are swoon worthy…

  5. I love that Tennenbaum pink color SO much!

    I’ve also been obsessed with the house from the top pick since the spread in Domino. I took a ton of ideas away from that cool couples Maine home… especially the framed Hermes scarf.

    Hope to see the re-do!

  6. With your faboosh taste I am sure it will be amazing!

    love your inspiration pics! look forward to the transformation!

  8. I love that you are still going to tackle it even though its temporary. Totally worth it. And I”ve been looking for a great light pink – can’t wait to see what you do!

  9. I think that’s going to look great! I’m also contemplating a pale pink wall, but for my dining room. It’ll definitely be a risk, but I feel like it might be amazing (as long as I can pick the right shade of pink).

    Can’t wait to see your new room!

    Can’t go wrong with F&B pink ground… pink with a little brown is so flattering.

    Paint will do wonders for your space, and your awesome stuff will finish the job. Can’t wait!

  11. I love that you don’t do what a “normal” person would do! Looking forward to the reveal.
