So today I’m so excited to share two mood boards with you that I designed for my coworker, Sam!! Sam is wanting to spruce up her master bedroom and asked me if I wanted to make her a mood board for some inspiration. And… of course I did!
The first thing I did was have her answer some questions for me about her general decorating style and what she was envisioning for her space. She loves coastal style and wanted a laid back, beachy feel for her bedroom. And, she loves farmhouse. This was so much fun for me to mix these two styles and create a custom coastal farmhouse master bedroom mood board for her!
One of the questions she answered for me before we got started was the price range of what she wanted to spend on this project. I needed to have a ballpark figure before I started searching for things to fill her room. I love the added challenge of finding things that not only creates the look she wants but also finding things that fit in a certain price range.
It’s definitely more nerve wracking designing one of these for someone other than myself. I knew I wanted to give her more than just one option so if there was something she didn’t like in one of the boards, she could kind of mix and match things to her liking.
So, without further ado, here they are!
Coastal Farmhouse Mood Board Option #1
This first option I’m giving Sam is definitely more of your classic coastal style. I love the natural element of the rug and how it ties in to the driftwood look of the candle holder and light fixture.
I love how all the patterns and textures blend together and create this calming sensation when you look at it. It makes me want to curl up with a good book and maybe light a nice candle and just enjoy some quiet.
And I love it so much I want to keep it for myself. But when I asked Jeremy if I could redo our room like this, I feared for my marriage. Haha. Not because he didn’t like it, but because we aren’t even finished with this update yet. Oh well. But I do really, really love this one.
- Paint color: Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue
- Shiplap (Can find some here.) I was envisioning the shiplap as a focal wall behind their bed. Guesstimating that wall is around 80 sq feet, this “real” shiplap would cost around $380. I’m going to suggest they DIY “shiplap” with quarter inch Lauan plywood like we did for my son’s nursery for around $80. (Here’s the tutorial Jeremy used.)
- Morning Horizon Canvas from Kirkland’s $64.99
- This white chandelier from Target $159.99
- Finder’s Keepers Pillow from this Etsy seller $32
- This 2 pack of striped pillows from Stein Mart $17.48
- This Safavieh handmade natural jute rug from Overstock $183.19
- This pickstitched quilt from Pottery Barn in porcelain blue $199
- Distressed wood candle holder from Kirkland’s. You can find it here. $24.99
Grand Total : $761.64 + cost of paint and paint supplies.
Coastal Farmhouse Mood Board Option #2
This second option, while still being coastal with the beachy blue paint and white color scheme with pops of blue and coral, combines more of a rustic farmhouse feel than the first one.
The rustic wood corbel, the wood frame around the shiplap, and the wooden beads of the light fixture all kind of tie in together. They remind me of an old wooden pier at the beach, and even the detail on the wooden corbel looks like an old nautical rope.
These elements brings some masculinity to the room to balance out the pops of coral in the accent pillow and the coral initial that hangs above the bed. I’m picturing two of the striped pillows on the bed so I’ll double the cost of that pillow in the breakdown.
- Paint: Valspar Sweet Slumber
- This framed shiplap from Etsy. $72
- These blue and white striped pillows from TJ Maxx. $39.98
- Coral throw pillow from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Find it here. $29.99
- This wooden corbel from Hobby Lobby (on sale) for $9.99
- White Ikea Ritva curtains $29.99– Find them here.
- Pottery Barn Camille duvet cover- Link here. $99.99
- This Safavieh Monaco Navy/ Light Blue Area rug $143.70
- This bohemian farmhouse chandelier from Home Depot $379.80 (***Disclaimer: I realize this light is totally a splurge. You easily sub it out for something more budget friendly to make this second option much more affordable. I just really love the light and I think it makes this room.)
Grand Total: $805.44
Thank you so much, Sam, for asking me to do this for you! I thoroughly enjoyed every second! Which one is your favorite?
