sneak peek best of: bedrooms (part 3)

Today is the third and final installment of my “Best of Bedrooms” roundups (here are Part One and Part Two, in case you missed them). I had so much fun building this particular series because bedrooms, to me, are the most personal rooms a person can share, and I’m so grateful that all of these artists and designers were kind enough to allow us into their homes. Thanks, everyone!

    love, love, love the (kids?) room with the tree mural and bird houses. I also love the brown room below it which is totally different in style!

  3. Love…I think I have to get that gray and yellow striped bedding.

  4. I love the (smith) do you think those are hangers they used as quotes and just cut of the metal hook??? I think that would work if not! Very cute ideas!

  5. I’ve been obsessed with Gemma Ahern’s room since I first spotted it on d*s. The room is gorgeous, and I can spot my tube stop from when I studied in London next to her bed!

  6. ikh says:

    Oh man, I’m a big fan of yellow and gray, too. ‘Did my bedroom in the same color scheme!

  7. Alex says:

    Did Ryan and Alissa ever get back to D*S about what paint color they used for their bedroom? I know commenters were dying to know when the sneak peak was originally published. I’ve gotta know where that gray came from!

    Jess–I was admiring the {smith}, too! If you check out the post linked under the photo, they say: “Adam and I love to dumpster dive! We found one set of these chair arms to make parenthesis and our next-door neighbor found a perfectly matching set for us!” I’m totes going to try this when BF & I get hitched! :)
