Aqua and Yellow Bedroom Design Board Inspired by a Manatee

I subscribe to the National Geographic mostly because I love learning about what goes on around the globe, but also because they always have the most amazing photos. In one of the newsletters they sent me, I fell in love with this photo of a manatee. The color scheme is calming, cool, and even bright (the beaming sun in the background). I knew I would use the same colors in a bedroom design.

I wanted to add yellow for contrast and to make the space more fun. Grays, whites, silver, and aqua blue are the colors prominent in the National Geographic photo and really are the perfect colors for a bedroom.

What’s your favorite part of this bedroom design board? Drop a comment and let me know!

Till next time,

  3. I thought you might have lost it, but I do like this board. Our master bath is dark silver gray with white trim.

    Never knew a manatee could be so inspiring -but then again, sailors did confuse them with the most beautiful(?) imaginary seacreatures of all time -mermaids! lol

    The picture looks so heavenly though, and your mood board is great! Again, the bedding is fab and I love the colors. I think my favorite item in here is actually the multicolored pillow. Great post!
