Bedroom Crush

The design firm Feasby & Bleeks Design created this room using the paint color (Fern SD019) as their inspiration. 
What I like about it is the mix of elements. The subdued green paint wall color, the natural elements like the linen bedding, headboard, bedframe, and the textured drum pendant paired with the bright floral shams and asian influences.  
I like how the Asian influences balance the feminine floral fabrics.  The design team used full scale furniture (just less of it) despite having a small room.  
The designers put a bench underneath the window for extra seating.  Great idea if you don't have the custom built window seat. 
Personally, I think the shams are the piece de resistance!  I ADORE the brown grosgrain ribbon added to floral fabric - it balances it out.  Such an easy DIY to do to any pillow.  And, don't you love the little peak of nailhead in the background?  Moi, aussi.  

ps: Anyone else notice that they must of switched the curtain fabric?  The first picture the curtains are neutral, but in the second & third picture it's floral.  For more, see here


  1. I love the punch that the rich chocolate gives this room. I'm also loving the aqua/green combo. Completely gorgeous - the whole thing.

    Have a great weekend Fran!


  2. The mirror above the nightstand is amazing! Also, I did notice the change in curtain fabric--I think I prefer the print. It really livens up the room. Happy weekend!

  3. Oh yes, some ribbon trim and nailheads make me very happy! Gorgeous room, but still very approachable and liveable. I'm with Ashley--I prefer the floral drapes. Ciao. Have a great weekend.

  4. I love this room! I definitely prefer the floral drapes- that print is gorgeous! The colour palate is so pretty and the cushions/fabric definitely spice up the room.
    Have a super weekend and thanks so much again for stopping by my blog:)

  5. You and your nailhead crush! You crack me up! This room is soooo you! So homey and comfy but still elegant! Have a great weekend, Fran!
    P.S. How's the little guy?

  6. I usually love a Greek key trim, but I think I would have liked the pillows without this time.

  7. I did not even notice the curtains. :P

    I like those pillows, too. Especially that they are nice and big.

  8. Great eye! I never notice stuff like that.

  9. I can see why you have a crush! That fern color is gorg, and the shams, well... need I say more. The colors of the curtain fabric are beautiful as well. --Gretchen O.
