Mor Furniture Design Star

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to do a magazine shoot behind the scenes?  I was able to partner up with Mor Furniture for their Design Star Bedroom Competition and I want to show you all of how it went down.  Firstly, a month before we went to their showroom in Miramar, CA we had to pick specific furniture pieces and accessories.  Then once we showed up, our rooms looked like this:

These are all of the pieces that I’d picked from Mor.  Now all I had to do was put it all together. That awesome luggage to the right is what I loaded all of my accessories into flying back and forth from Portland. ?

The pieces that I picked were:

Bedframe

Bedding

Dresser

Bench

Sidetables are no longer available, but here’s something similar

Lamps 

Map

Area Rug

 

Then I went to work setting stuff up and moving things around. Its just like what you would do in your own home but way easier because you have pretty furniture pieces and people to help you move things around and hang pictures.

 

Still moving stuff around…then I steamed, ironed and pressed all of the fabrics and pillows.

 

Here it is, I just had to clean up a bit and then I’d be done!  I ended up moving stuff around a bunch but finally forced myself to stop touching things!  ?

 

Here it is all finished. This is with my camera, so the professional ones look way better. I had to take down the black and white photos above the bed because they wouldn’t fit into the shot.

Here are a few pictures with the details I added:

 

I had them remove the mirror from the dresser to hang this map mirror piece and it was my favorite part of the whole room! Totally tied it all together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I found this pretty picture from Mor on instagram stories. You should follow them! So many pretty pictures and furniture!

 

This bench is gorgeous! Every piece looks good on it!

 

Then the room was ready to take professional photos! This is the camera they used and they have a special screen on top that the room/shot has to fit in.

 

Tons of amazing people help you move things around so that everything looks just right. It’s actually a really weird angle so the furniture has to be pushed in and things get moved around for the perfect shot.

The amazing advantage that you have in a magazine shoot is that the lighting is INCREDIBLE!  Seriously, so much light!  And you have people helping you!  That obviously isn’t realistic to do in life at home, so be patient with yourself, and take time to make the room that you want and feel great in!

I loved each piece in this room and am so grateful for the opportunity! It was a blast! Side note, the lights are insanely intense so I am literally squinting in each picture! Props to models and people that take amazing pictures in these settings!

Want the look?  Here’s where you can get each piece:

If you have any questions or thoughts on the room I’d love to hear it!  I loved trying more of a boho/Scandinavian decor.  Usually I love color but bedrooms should feel calm and relaxing and I feel that I accomplished that with some beautiful furniture pieces!

This is me being tired at the end of the day!  If my personality was a pillow this would have to be it! All in all it was a wonderful experience and I hope all the other talented designers rub off onto me! They were awesome!

Mor Furniture also made a pinterest board of the room so that you can access it there! And obviously you can find me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest  Be sure to check that out along with all of the other rooms!  Thank you for all the voting and for being so patient with my many posts asking you to vote!  The support has been overwhelming and I truly do love you all!
