Razzle Dazzle Me

Razzle Dazzle Bedroom

 I'm thinking of trying to participate in the One Room Challenge in April. This is my mood board for my bedroom. I'm not 100% sold on the paint color, BM Razzle Dazzle. I wanted something with great contrast. I really like pink. I'm afraid it skews teenager not middle aged woman. Maybe too much gold? Beth at Chinoiserie Chic has said that this color is sophisticated and a great pink to use. I always like her taste in design. Also she has a great series of pink and Chinoiserie right now. Such pretty eye candy!

I'm making a upholstered headboard in a black and white Chinoiserie print. It has gold in it also. The nightstands are Ikea Malm dressers with painted Overlays. There is a faux fur bench at the end of the bed. I'm thinking of getting another dog and the bench would help it get up on the bed. The gallery wall is of vintage Barbie prints. I worry that the brass dresser doesn't give me enough storage (which is at a premium in my house).  But I really like how it takes that corner of my room and makes it more of a sitting area. Which is funny because who am I kidding I will only use it to drop clothes on the chair and to put on shoes. I don't imagine myself with a cup of coffee and a book sitting in my bedroom reading. The white sheers have a burnt out zebra print. I think I'll replace the broken ceiling fan with a pretty lucite chandelier.

I've gone thru so many colors for this room: emerald green, multiple shades of purple, soft pink, gold, just black and white. I'm tired of my indecision!

So what do you think?
