Artistina Bedroom

IMG_2760ResizedI dubbed one of the guest bedrooms in the Bachman’s Spring Idea House the Artistina Bedroom. It really is a bedroom designed for an artist – in this case, a little girl who loves to color and create and daydream.

The room was painted with Hirshfield’s 002 Elusive White.

The paper border around the room is a clever use of coloring book table runner paper and placemat paper.


The black band on the top and the bottom is just a simple border of black chalkboard paint.


The border dives into a solid wall painted with chalkboard paint which serves a creative purpose as you’ll see in a minute.


I love the exposed filament bulbs which serve as bedside lights suspended from the ceiling.


And now for the most awesome design element in the room…

Drumroll please…

A chalkboard headboard drawn entirely free hand buy Hirschfield’s own Dawn Feda.


That is quite something, isn’t it?

Here’s another angle…


And a few close-ups for those of you who want to give it a go at your house…




The chalkboard design inspiration also included some chalkboard paper wrapped books and a chalkboard painted floor lamp.


The covered book idea is super cute. In fact, a clever repurpose of chalkboard placements achieved this look.


Before I ever even stepped foot in the room, I was immediately drawn to the DIY Cherry Blossom inspired basket chandelier.

I love baskets.


Silk floral stems were added to tie the look to the room – specifically echoing the red flowers colored on the border paper.


The little side table (aka plant stand) was staged to incorporate a few more red accents including a pair of reading glasses and a mug. Of course, the teapot terrarium sends it right over the top.


Definitely, some sweet ideas for the little artist in your life.

Note: The Bachman’s Spring Idea House 2016 is open through April 17, 2016.
