What are some of your favorite bedroom details?
Have you all seen Urban Outfitter’s new hardware section? I’m seeing a heavy dosage of Anthropologie inspiration within some of these choices, and I’m loving it.
I’m thinking designing a bedroom at my family’s new house isn’t going to be so bad after all…!
Last fall, one of my best friends, Amanda, left cold old Boston for the glamorous life of Los Angeles. We had lived together for the previous two years and I was always envious of how well she decorated her bedrooms. In true Amanda fashion, she has somehow topped herself with her new LA apartment.
Being very bohemian in style and resourceful and crafty in nature, Amanda adorned one of her bedroom walls with a handmade tree mural, though not with paint. Using electrical tape for the bark of the tree, and fabric swatches for the leaves, she created this beautiful embellishment:

How inviting does that look??
Tip for your own tree: Since the fabric cut outs will be flimsy, reinforce them by taping cardstock on the back. Amanda attached them to the wall by alternating between sticky tack and fabric tacks to add variety.
