This room will be a different challenge, as the owner is a guy and I've never really read articles on decorating for guys' bedrooms.
The look that came to my mind was industrial.
I bounced the idea off the owner, and he seemed genuinely excited with it. As he is quite the movie buff, I tried to give him a picture of my idea of the industrial look - the "dilapidated" warehouse in Inception.
|Yusuf sharing an idea with the team. Yeah, I love this movie.|
I did some blog-surfing and came across Roman and Williams work, where they totally nailed the industrial look in the residential.
The picture above is one of my favourites. I love the dark aged wood and the organised chaos of this room.
Another view of the same room. Love it.
I also look for inspiration when I'm watching TV (which I don't really have much time for). When I'm watching a show, I'm usually checking out the room decoration more than I am concentrating on the storyline. I wonder if anyone out there is like that too.
So last Saturday, my sister was watching New Girl where I noticed the room was stylishly industrial.
|Last Saturday's episode. Don't ask me what it was about.|
|I believe this is the first episode, because Damon Wayans Jr. is in this screen shot.|
I also look for inspiration when I'm walking past shops in shopping malls. I saw these chairs in the photo below in two restaurants so far, and have been wondering where I can find them. They look so industrially cool.
Have a great week and a Happy New Year!
PS: Thanks to my husband for lending me his laptop for me to write this post. And sincere apologies to him for dropping it on the floor when our 1-year-old was trying to climb on my lap. :-(
