Transitional Style Bedroom (with a horse!)

Transitional Style Bedroom (with a horse!) »


Alternative title: my little pony bedroom for adults.  Today I’m featuring the first bedroom we’ve had here on Style Emulator.  This transitional style bedroom is courtesy of Apartment Therapy.  If I was a single girl with an apartment in the city, I imagine my bedroom would look something along these lines.  Classy, crisp, and carefree.  What intrigues me most about this room (besides the horse, of course)–and what I didn’t notice on my first, second, third or fourth glances–is that the only item bringing in color is the bedding.  Every other item is sticking to a black/white/gray/gold color scheme.  This is the kind of color I can handle.  I couldn’t find the exact bedding (this is an older photo), but I was able to put together a few colorful pillows, as well as the rest of this transitional style room, right here:

  1. Horse print – The pièce de résistance of the room.
  2. Chandelier – I had a hard time finding a chandelier that emulated the original.  I didn’t want one that was too precious or with too much frou frou (i.e. glass crystals).  This one does a good job of looking nice, but not being too ornate.
  3. Starburst – Decor for the nightstand.  These look good anywhere.
  4. Tray – Correction.  The color in this room comes from the bedding and this adorable cerulean tray.  I love items that have fun sayings on them.
  5. Bed – This is a gorgeous bed with diamond tufting and nail head trim.
  6. Night stand – This 3-drawer night stand with circular pulls emulates the original.
  7. Bench – I’m totally digging this bench.  It’s not a piece that would work in every setting, but for this transitional bedroom it fits right in.
  8. Terrarium – Because every space needs a little greenery–even if it’s just a succulent.
  9. Lamp – The alabaster base of this lamp is beautiful.  Perfect for a bedside light.
  10. Rug – The scales in this rug emulate the carpet (rug?) in the inspiration photo.  It’s available in several different sizes.
  11. Stool – Because this room is slightly whitewashed, I brought in a stool with a marble pattern to mix things up a bit.  See more white options below.
  12. Candle votive – Every bedroom needs candles.  These beauties accent the room nicely.
  13. Pillow – Here’s the pop of color and pattern I’m talking about.
  14. Mirror – The cloverleaf shape of this mirror gives the room a bit of dimension.
  15. Pillow – More color and pattern.

Garden stools have been on trend for a while which is convenient since they’re less expensive than a side table.  Below are six white options that would work well in any room.  They are all around $95-$120 and most are available in different colors.
