Fashion and decor are two art forms that influence each other. To bridge this connection, I’ve started a moodboard series that’s inspired by my new journey into freelance writing, writing about personal style for a local newspaper. Each interviewee will serve as a muse for a moodboard that reflects his/her personality and style.
In my first write-up I interviewed Ruby Jade, a burlesque dancer for the T-Town Tassels. Ruby’s venture into this art form has been a major turning point in her life. Performing has allowed her to truly feel comfortable in her own skin–literally and figuratively, as she’s not afraid to rock the pasties!
Part of Ruby’s sex appeal comes from her confidence, which inspired me in this moodboard. Sexiness is subjective, but there’s one key ingredient that has to be present: comfort. In creating this bedroom moodboard, I took comfort into strong consideration. I chose high-quality sheets in Egyptian cotton, a faux fur blanket, and pillows in lush fabrics like velvet. (These fabrics also add to the room’s sensuality.)
This room is seductive, but not overtly sexual. There’s a touch of Art Deco, which adds a little glamour. This is a grown and sexy bedroom.
For the room’s palette, I chose a wall color (Dark Truffle by Behr) that’s gray enough to be relaxing, yet complex enough to make it a bit inviting. Complementing this color are rich shades of magenta and plum plus more neutrals like light gray and black. These shades add to the romanticism of the room.
Like Ruby, this room enjoys a little sparkle. I used accessories in both gold and silver. Mixing metallics is smart so that the room doesn’t feel too matchy (it’s also very practical). Candles also add to the sparkle of a room. They also give a glow that’s flattering to everyone—and who doesn’t want to look better in the bedroom?
Curves played another big role in this moodboard, adding feminine energy from the lamp, dresser, and glass accessories. Balancing the curves was important, so I added angular items like the room divider and trays.
This bedroom look is very attainable, as most of the items I picked are from mid-budget stores like Target, Ikea, and Pier 1. (For info on where to find these items, click on the number in the photo’s caption.) This room would be so easy to create, I’m itching to make over my bedroom now. Never mind the fact I’m still working on a mini-makeover here. The struggle is real.
You can also find additional grown and sexy bedroom picks on my Pinterest board here. They didn’t make the cut, but they’re just as sexy.
