Mood Board Monday

Thanks to Strictly Simple Style, I have found my new obsession: Room Remix. I have fallen in love with RR's Mood Board Mondays! The object of this Mood Board Monday was to create a budget friendly room centered around one of, or both of, the following:

These would be the oh-so-fabulous Michael Miller Florals Garden Trellis in Lime fabric from and the Spring Delilah Window Panel from Pier 1. I decided to do a girl's young lady's dorm room based around the window panel. Here is what I came up with:

This is based off of the fact that dorm rooms provide beds and wardrobes, so I wanted everything materialistic in the room to be a color pulled from the panels, so I found this Painted Dot Duvet Cover spiced up with the Warm Yellow Toss-It Pillow. The desk is the Arctic White Parsons Desk along with the Citrus Yellow Faux Leather Task Chair. I draw the gray-ish color from the panels by adding a Silver Castle Hill Rug to the floor. Top it off with the Pink and Coral Spot Light, Yellow Digital Clock, and Bright Pink Swirly Floral Wall Hook, and you have one very bright dorm room!

Overall, I like it, but I struggled with complete freedom. It was really hard to match the yellow/gold color from the panels, so I stuck to a yellow theme. I just can't help that I keep getting a retro vibe from the board!

Cute! Love that lamp! The three colors on the shades look perfect with the panels. Great choices for a dorm room.
