White to Bright Room Inspiration


In about 3 weeks time, my family and I will be moving AGAIN but this time it will be back to our home. We left that home 2 years ago when we moved to Switzerland and are really excited to be going back. I'm not so excited about packing everything up again... I mean, the whole organizing and cleaning bit makes me tingle but the moving itself sucks! This will be the third move in two years. On the bright side, I get to paint and redecorate the whole house, yay! 

I'm pretty much starting from scratch and CAN NOT wait to get started. The kids and I have been pinning ideas for months on how each room and back year are going to be decorated. My husband couldn't care less but we are pretty stoked. I know it will keep me busy and give me lots to blog about in the coming months. 

I was so thrilled to make a style board inspired by this cool mid-century chair I found on the Chairish.com. Have you heard of this site?? It's a place where you can buy and sell furniture, among other things. You can seriously find any kind of chair on there and there are soooo many styles and colors to choose from, old and new. I had a really hard time narrowing down my pick for this room style board. Once I found this Wood Brazilian Mid-Century chair, it simply called to me. 

The board it suppose to be how I would design my room from white to bright, but to honest, I'm kind of going through a white stage in my life. I've had orange walls and lived in color. I'm more into textures at the moment to really brighten a room up. With that said, it is so easy to add spice to a room with subtle splashes of color here and there, as is the case with the mustard lamps and bright accent pillows. The textured rug and clock, even though white, add so much to the space. And the Brazilian wood used in the accent chair and side table is so beautiful, a room should be designed around them.

I have four bedrooms, an office, three full baths, an eat in kitchen redo, living room, dining room and family room to decorate, so this is only the beginning. I'd love to know what your current design style is! Let me know below and if you have time, leave some links to pins that really inspire you!

  2. Congrats on the move! I don't envy you packing and moving.... I hate moving house. Getting to the new place is all exciting, but... the packing, cleaning... unpacking.... yuck. SO I wish you ALL the best and that it all goes super smooth. Also... LOVE your design picks. That cushion is like 100% me and I love that table! Look forward to seeing what you do :)

  3. This is beautiful! I'm with you in that I'm kind of over colored walls. I've unintentionally started a pillow collection as a fairly cost-effective way to swap out color and change things up a bit in my living room. And burlap. I'm still loving burlap as a fun texture, especially as we move into fall.

  7. I'm obsessed with white & bright! I wish I could start from scratch again, but it's going to take way too much work. When I was furnishing my current place, I was unable to channel the interior designer in me, soo I ened up with a LOT of dark furniture. I hate it so much, and it makes the space look even smaller. Look forward to seeing pictures of the furnished new place!
