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

    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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

    love your inspiration pics! look forward to the transformation!

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

  7. 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!

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

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

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

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