Recently on Dwellings, I found this image of this bedroom. I am in love with the entire look and feel of the space; its dark painted raw brick, the chevron striped bedspread, the urban vintage appeal of the decor. Here are a few easy solutions to recreate this look in your home.
First things first, paint your walls a dark charcoal. You could opt for a true dark grey or lean towards something with indigo or even purple in the base. Depending on the decor you choose, these swatches from Benjamin Moore
give you a pretty nice range. If you want to recreate the worn chipped paint effect on the walls, Portola Paints
has great finishes and washes for this very look.
is carrying this chevron striped comforter set and it's available in several colors!
This style of metal basket is easily found at many vintage shops, but if you don't have luck there, this similar one at Restoration Hardware
will do the trick.
If you are looking for accent pillows to give you extra comfort for sleeping or just to create a fuller look at the head of your bed, adding extra pillows always helps. I found these great ones at Crate and Barrel
Finding blue antique bottles such as these can be easy. You just need to scavenge sites like Etsy or Ebay. This collection was found on Antique Bottles.
The white bed side table in the inspiration photo seems to be a white painted wood table. I imagine it may look something like this one I found at Urban Outfitters
I found this vintage metal industrial cabinet, which has the same look and feel as the one in the inspiration photo, on Ebay
. With a bit of digging I bet you could find one on Craigslist or your local flea market.
Last but not least — where to find that vintage dress form? I found one very similar on Etsy
, where you can find many others. Also, local flea markets and vintage shops are a great resource for authentic antique forms and also newer reproductions (which will be more affordable).
