Boho bedroom with macrame mobile chandelier, classic art and indigo pillows – pink, blush, indigo, navy blue
Difference between minimal and unfinished decoration
I spent the last year in bed thinking about it. My life ritual is to swing from end to end, then slowly move to the middle ground. I did this with the boyfriends. I did it with work. I do this with the decoration of my bedroom. My bedroom, which was once full, was a pretty empty canvas last year. And from this place, I think the difference between minimal design and something unfinished.
Well, it didn’t end in a few concrete ways – our old gypsum plasterboard began to peel, so we have to paint it precisely, and our wardrobe doors needed a new renovation. When this was taken, it had a very simple platform bed, lamps, MOST simple side tables, a long wall-mounted shelf, some old landscapes and a sumptuous, majestic round old mirror.
I think I say that a lot – I’m a bit of a concern, and the more I can simplify my life, the better I can focus on my main life priorities: wife, girl and small business. I can’t remember exactly what influenced me to get rid of my storage and get most of it out of my bedroom; expressive, encouraging, calm and happy. These photos put my thumb forward. I’m always changing and updating things, so I’m sure there’s more, but I felt very happy where it is right now, I wanted to share.
What I added to my bedroom
Another way to make it unfinished was that there was no artwork. I knew I wanted something on our bed, but it’s a very special, personal place for art. I had to value this art. He would hang like a guardian angel above our heads – you have to rely on this art to watch you. Does that sound crazy? I was in a very good store with my husband Ryan and my daughter Harriet, and we saw her, and I couldn’t raise my eyes pessimist, worldly, and meditatively in this great landscape with color palette. Art is definitely postponed. Thanks thrift store!
I always say you can’t go out and find art, he has to find you. Keep those eyes and heart open – when you feel connected to something, shoot! I like to see this painting in the mirror when I go under my covers.
Speaking of art, I ALWAYS wanted a mobile device, so I fell in love when I saw Tasha’s modern macrame mobile phone at Tasha Ball’s art show in Made. I love that his emphasis on this room is the texture of all these thoughtful knots connected by a dear, talented friend. Funny hanging sculptures on mobile phones – it is an honor to give your life a place for the sake of beauty. I wake up and go to bed because I face this beautiful piece.
I added family photos to the landscape collection on my wall mount shelf. Most of the landscapes are old, but one is the work of friend and artist Tyler Thrasher. The landscapes calm down and inspire me. Good day, am I right? And family footage – why should I get them if I don’t print them? It doesn’t hurt to visually remind the two most fascinating people who have ever visited the world, right? This is you, Ryan and Harry.
I plant it and it’s a happy disease. I can’t stop doing things these days. I was studying the fabrics of the Owl and the Drum, and my head was filled with excitement in the combination of several fabrics and other colors in my room. I felt happy, so I sewed this pink, topographic Carolyn Friedlander fabric bed cushions for us. I love not only to look at this fabric, but to find a reason to squeeze my cheek every day. God bless.
More beds? Yeah. Tasha Ball hosted an indigo shibori workshop and I painted that blue and white fabric that adorned my bed on the kidney pillows. I DID IT HERE! Creating staples for life-like pillows is strangely satisfying. The pillows were quilted and supported in a green color drawn in the great art. I like to look at colors and patterns; It feels inspiring and strangely sexy – just how you want to feel in your bedroom. * Wink *
Headboards, beds, what?
Palmer and I talked about never having a real bed frame. A definite story. The owner owns several beds (not brag, palms) and is doing it for me. Simple. My redhead did it, that’s nice. However, I came across the idea of a painted hood and I’ve been thinking for a long time. If I paint the title or find the great art first, I can’t remember now, but they take clues from each other and I feel really good. We used the artist’s tape to mark a rectangle and were painted by Jasper by Sherwin Williams. Then we were painted under my chair rail in my dining room (this post will come!).
So that’s it. Outside, I just took these photos, and then I found surprisingly small vintage green filing cabinets of the perfect size for the side tables. With this move I also welcomed more storage, but I haven’t put anything in my drawers yet. I’m afraid of hoarding and acquiring. That’s what other people think, right? Then I will share photos of these paintings.
Slow and steady approach to design
I say, “Take it away and add it back slowly.” I’m definitely not a big fan of doing anything, so it was a much stronger and happy place to start from my over-stuffed room. I’m sure you’re all feeling better knowing I’m sleeping in a more finished space, and I appreciate your thoughts. You’re beautiful and you live in a meaningful area. Cheers!
Then (My baby is getting too big! The doctor says it will happen!)
Just like making a fire, creating your own warm, comfortable and useful bed linen is reinforcing. It also allows you to feel your place on a long producer line throughout history. Being a part is a satisfying tradition. This Carolyn Friedlander fabric is beautiful. I’m amazed that it’s geometric and organic at once.
Quilted House Sparrow shibori indigo pillows make you feel as proud as my handmade standard pillow cases. I loved to slow down and learn about the process of fabric dying and closing the pillow. Thanks Tasha!
Look at my beautiful Foxy Pot’s cup! I have special clients who are inspired by this job, as soon as possible.
I wanted to do a tutorial and finally decided on this little macrame bracelet. It is based on the knotted bracelets you see in tourist shops. It is very easy to do and you can design it to suit your style, depending on the beads and beads you choose. They also offer great gifts due to the adjustable length of the sliding buckle.
As long as the bead holes are large enough to accommodate two cords, almost any type of cords and cords work. Only one node is used along a simple square node. The sliding buckle is as simple as finishing, and the whole project can do what you want in part of American Idol or the TV.
You’ll need a few simple things:
- 4 meter cable (I used C-Lon Tex 400 for this demo)
- 8 or more beads depending on the length of the bracelet
- 2 small beads for rockers
- 3 straight pins
- Needle tip for finishing needle (has round ballpoint tip)
- Needle Tip Jewelry Pliers (Optional)
1)Cut the 2-piece strap up to 24,, hold it together and clip about 8 clipboard boards from one end. These will be fill cables. I use a shade of lavender for my stuffing cords.
Cut a piece of cord about 2 meters long. This knot will become ropes. Normally I use the same color cable for both fill and knot cords, but for this demo only, I use a dark purple shade for knot cords. Locate the center of the knot cord, slide it under the filler cables and secure it to the foamcore panel. We will now start to work with square knots with knot cords on the filler cables.
2) I use the right hand, so I usually start with the cable on the right side of the filler cables. Place the fill cords horizontally on the right to form a ring on the right. Take the cable on the left and place it on the horizontal cable, then lift it up under the cables and with the ring on the right. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. This is 1/2 of the square node.
3) Repeat step 2, but take the left cord and place it horizontally on the filler cables that form a loop on the left. Take the right cord and place it on the horizontal cord, then turn it under all the cables and top to left. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. You just made a full-frame knot.
4) After each 3 to 5 square knots, continue to make square knots and place a bead on the filler cables. The number of nodes depends on the size of the cord, the size of the beads, and the fact that many nodes look nice to you. Continue this pattern to the desired length. Note that the sliding clamp will add approximately ″ add.
When you’re done, thread a knot of thread into your needle and sew it to the center as far as possible. If you have problems, use a pair of jewelery pliers to pull your needle. If you find that your knots are too tight and you cannot thread the entire cord, remove the 3-ply cord and sew each thread separately. After properly sewing both knot cables, cut off any excess.
5) Then we make the buckle. Circle your work and hold it together by loosely tying it with a small amount of cord close to both sides of the nodes (I used orange). Foamcore pin bracelet.
Cut a strap about 12 ″ in length. Just like you did in step 1, slide this cord under the four cords and make square knots on all four cords for the 1/2 cord. Finish ends just like you would with a bracelet. When sewing these tips, avoid putting needles into the cords inserted into the needle.
6) Remove these temporary lanyard bits. There are 2 loose cables protruding from both ends of the buckle section. Hold 2 cords together and form a slip knot, place a bead on both cords, then create another slip knot to hold it in place. Cut the excess. Run and show everyone you know.
