The art of finding

Bedroom Refresh with Indigo Artisan Patterns

Bed and Bath Furniture and Home Accents

From time to time, I like to give our master bedroom a refresh. And there’s no better season to do so than Spring or Summer to help create a welcoming and fresh feeling. I normally opt for  neutrals when I’m updating any room in our home. But another color that I turn to is the indigo blue. For this bedroom refresh I’ve chosen this color as the main character.

Pick your Inspiration

I’ve always found block printing patterns to be so interesting. Either by hand or machine, the beautiful patterns created by this technique can be easily considered a work of art. In one of my HomeGoods visits I found a set of two amazing decorative pillows with this type of pattern and I couldn’t resist the urge to put them on my cart. At the time I wasn’t even considering a room refresh but I knew that these would be the inspiration and base for a future project.

Mix and Match Patterns

From those two pillows I started building my idea. Later on I found a comforter set with a similar artisanal pattern but in a bigger scale. While I don’t mind the use of various patterns in one space, I balanced out the look by adding pillow shams in a darker blue tone. I also added two bigger pillows with a denim-like fabric (another amazing find at HomeGoods – I still can’t believe the price for how nice they are!).

Keep the Rest Basic

After I finished dressing up the bed, now it was time to style the rest of the room. Because I wanted it all to feel light and airy, I kept the rest of my accessories basic.

I added a wall mirror with a soft wood frame above our dresser. This piece was another treasure I found at HomeGoods! The size was perfect and yes, it’s okay to mix different types of woods!

The table lamps and ceramics were also kept to a simple white but with a rustic aesthetic to go with the handmade look of the block pattern pillows.

At the end this bedroom refresh fulfilled its mission, to create a welcoming and fresh feeling. The new accessories (aka treasures) that I found at HomeGoods made this all possible. What HomeGoods find has recently inspired you to refresh a space in your home?
