Some readers’ bedrooms

Posted on Tue, 22 Feb 2011 by KiM

We received emails from Stephanie (from Montreal) and Bec who wanted to show off their bedrooms that they say were inspired by desire to inspire. Big smiles from both Jo and I as we’re here to inspire the pants off of you all. I thought I’d share them with you today, starting with Stephanie’s (the rest of Stephanie’s and Bec’s will be after the jump).

I’ve been a big fan of your blog for a while now, and your posts have definitely been a huge inspiration for my new bedroom. Though I’m not a professional photographer with a big (and expensive!) camera, I’ve got some decent shots and a very adorable kitten is even featured !

My name is Bec Bardoel and I have been a keen follower of your blog! I just wanted to say thankyou so much for all the amazing work you have put into your blog, I’m always inspired and motivated by each update. It has been especially helpful and motivating when I’m stressed and worn out from my textile uni assignments. Anyway i thought I’d share some pictures with you of my new room that I decorated from all your inspirational imagery and posts.

I need to know that paint color in the first group of pics. I am inspired to paint my bedroom that same color!

Jesselyn says:

That blue painting above the bed. I need to have it! Where is it from?

Stephanie says:

Thanks for the kind comments again !

Bec, studying in textile design must be exciting ! I understand now why you have so many pretty textiles in your place 🙂 Makes sense !

LA : The color in my bedroom is by Rona (a chain of hardware stores in Quebec), it is called Ocean and from the line Rona Eco, made from recycled paint and available only in Quebec. I found a perfect match in Benjamin Moore though, called Raindance #CC-680. I looks different on screen, but on the wall, it's the exact same color.

Jesselyn, I'll take that as a compliment since I made it, thank you ! If you're a bit of an artist, it's really easy to make something similar. It was finger painted and it's acrylic paint, turn the music on and go crazy !

LA says:

@Stephanie – thanks for the Benjamin Moore suggestion. I know what I'm doing this weekend!

xtina says:

I'm with Jesselyn on wanting the painting; its very soothing in a waterlilies sort of way with the color palatte, but also modern and awesome.

Stephanie says:

@LA, you're welcome ! Happy painting !

@xtina, thank you ! You guys are making me consider selling a few of my paintings.
