Bedroom Dreams

Let's play a bedroom game...no, not that kind of bedroom game! It's called "Can You Guess What Dani's Dreaming Of?" Let's begin.


Ding, ding, ding! If you guessed "Yellow and Gray Color Scheme," give yourself a good ol' pat on the back! 

I have been obsessed with this color scheme for a few years now. Ever since I first saw picture number 2 (yellow Ikea poster bed) in Domino Magazine back in 2008. Micah was not so into it at first, but when I showed him pictures 3 and 4, he really warmed up. I put together a very, very preliminary mood board of what I would like to see in the master bedroom. Sorry if it's a bit small, but it's my first time making a digital mood board so give me some props people. 

Now I am not saying that I'm running out and buying all this stuff. I am just in the initial planning stages and wanted to put out a feeler and see if I'm crazy, or if this really does work.

I know the color scheme is a bit hard to see, so here is a close up:

Also,  for those of you interested, here are links to most of the items on the mood board, in case you would like to get a closer look:

So what are you thoughts? Are you feeling the color scheme? Have you gone bold in your house? As always, would love to hear from you!


  1. Um....LOVE this! You have awesome taste, but I already knew that. :) We did our room gray and dark brown, and I plan to add a nice pop of white and turquoise with a handmade (by me) quilt....if I ever get a chance to dedicate that much time to sewing one item.

    The bed you put in your mood board - nice selection. A bed like that is timeless! I purchased one very similar to that in a dark brown metal over 10 years ago - it's Freya's now. I love that I haven't had to do anything to it in all these years - and it's had a lot of use & gone through several moves.

    Let me know if you need an extra set of hands refinishing something or decorating!

  2. I like a lot! In fact, I have that Draper Ash bedding from DwellStudio for our guest room (and it's lovely). I actually painted the walls in that bedroom a cool purple-gray which was a great way to take the kinda yellow wood in the furniture (which was my bedroom set growing up) down a notch and it plays very well with both yellow and gray....just as that blue would.

    All in all, I think you're off to a great start and don't be afraid of color! The bolder, the better I say. :)
