Horses & Buffalo Check

Today I'm sharing an inspiration board I made for my mother-in-law for a currently unused bedroom, this room is large enough to fit two queen beds and is one of the few spaces left to be touched in her gorgeous home.  The idea is to make it into a guest suite, it has a connected bathroom that I'll share my plans for in another post {update: read those plans here}.

The "theme" {I kind of hate that word} I'm going for is sophisticated with a country feel. My in-laws live in a smaller town in northeastern Oklahoma and my mother-in-law is passionate about her horses.

The light fixture is Pottery Barn's Mia Faceted-Crystal Flushmount.  The paint color is Benjamin Moore's Glass Slipper, a pale soothing blue {ceiling and trim will be BM White Dove}, and the carpet is Karastan Aberdale Antelope.

The bedding is Ballard designs Gwyneth Buffalo Check Bedding in Spa and at the foot of each bed will be Ballard Designs Simone Bench in Buffalo Check Taupe {this same fabric will also be used for the window panels}.  The headboard is Pottery Barn's Raleigh Upholstered Camelback Headboard in Oatmeal and world Market Sunburst Mirrors will hang above each headboard.  

And since we can't leave out the grandkids Ballard dog beds will also have to make an appearance...

In one corner of the room will be West Elm's Graham glider and ottoman in Dove Gray, this chair is so comfortable, every time I'm in West Elm I find myself rocking in it.  Next to the glider will be Ballard Designs Olivia Mirrored Side Table in Antique Brass and SloanWood Ball Floor Lamp in Graywash. 

In between the two beds I plan on using Pottery Barn's Park Mirrored Dresser and on the outside of each bed a Pottery Barn metal accent table.  Brass swing-arm sconces from Lamps Plus will go on either side of each bed {4 total} to save surface room on the dresser and to give overnight guests individual lighting.   

Ballard Designs carved horse that will live on the dresser.

This Pottery Barn floor mirror will go in the corner of the room opposite from the chair. 

As for what to hang on the walls, I have something like this Pottery Barn horse photograph in mind along with photos of my mother-in-laws horses.

Here is a larger photo of the inspiration board {please excuse the wonky formatting}, I'm so excited to see this room come to life.  *This post is not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned.
