Erica Johnston_Chic du Monde_Master Bedroom

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.

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.
