Not a big DIYer when it comes to decorating? Not to worry, you too can have a lovely boudoir without tearing your hair out in the process. If you hate white, stop reading now, but if you don’t, then by all means proceed.
We had been living in a condo before we bought our house, so to make sure my purchases could easily transition into our future homes, I decided to stick to a neutral palette of whites and creams in our bedroom. This decision turned out to be a lifesaver because when we did move I just re-created my condo look in our new home while we renovated the rest of it. It was FANTASTIC to have a ‘done’ space without any work while the rest of the house was a mess!
When I finally had a chance to play around with our bedroom, I found myself craving something a little more cozy and romantic. I poured over images and found a few grey bedrooms I loved (see them here). I decided to keep my base of whites and creams and layer in a dark moody grey.
It’s amazing how just making a few changes really transforms a space. I didn’t buy any major pieces of furniture, mostly just small pieces and accessories. I brought in a channeled silk quilt in a dark charcoal grey and added two French Louis XVI oval back chairs upholstered in a luscious grey velvet.
Instead of changing out my artwork or adding more to my walls, I decided to try something a little different and less ‘arranged’ by creating a gallery wall on my floor! I mixed architectural prints with illustrations in mismatched gilt frames for an eclectic and romantic feel. A few more accessories and pretty peonies in bright pink completed the look.
I loved inviting you into my home, I hope you had fun and picked up a few ideas along the way! If you like my bedroom and would like to re-create it for yourself at home, I’ve compiled a guide to help you master the look.
