Last week I came down with a little bit of a bug and decided to stay home from work one day.  In addition to sparing my co-workers my germs, it was the perfect excuse to catch up on 14 (yes 14) episodes of Gossip Girl.

As I was watched, I fell more and more in love with Serena’s bedroom at Blair’s house (no worries if you have no idea who I’m talking about).  Here’s what I mean…

Love, right?!?

So how can you re-create this sophisticated yet whimsical space? So glad you asked 🙂

This bed from Serena & Lily has a similar shape and pattern.  I actually prefer the scalloped edges of this design since it adds a bit more interest.

I heart this bench.  It’s a bit different from the upholstered bench in our inspiration, but this is just so fabulous, and you can find it at Ballard Designs.

Nothing says elegance like grasscloth wall covering.  This particular one is a faux grasscloth, and a bargain from Lowes.  In our inspiration bedroom, grasscloth is only on the accent wall behind the headboard.  Personally, I’d love to see it on all the walls


The wow “piece” in our inspiration bedroom is definitely the abstract pattern created by the butterfly decor above the headboard.  Here are two options (white butterflies & black flowers) both available on Amazon.


This floor lamp and wall sconce are simple yet elegant and look very similar to those in our inspiration room. These can be found at Circa Lighting and Restoration Hardware, respectively.

Last but not least, we have the seating.  I’ve chosen a teal velvet fabric (shown in the swatch) that has a more modern appeal in comparison to the silk green in our inspiration. You can find this chair at Home Decorators Collection.

So, what do you think?  Is there an inspiration bedroom that you’re looking to recreate?  Until next time… xoxo
