Bonjour, mes amies!
So glad you joined me today for one of my most anticipated posts! I’ve had my bedroom in the words for quite some time now, and I feel that I’ve finally gotten it in a place where I can display some of it on here! There are still corners of the room I have yet to capture in the right light (literally, ha,) but I’ve managed to snag a few good snapshots for you to get a general idea of my beautiful boudoir.
Speaking of the provocative term– who knew that boudoir literally translates into lady’s private dressing room? I love that so much more than “bedroom,” don’t you?
Speaking of “bed,” here’s mine! It took me over a year to finally decide on bedding. It’s hard to see the details here, but I have the Martha Stewart “Shimmer” bedding collection. I’ve found it available on a couple of Ebay sites for you. It’s a floral jacquard pattern on a silver/light creme satin duvet. It’s so luxurious it’s perfect for my inner Libra.
The two rich blue dressers flanking my bed are an Ikea Hack I did recently. They’re the 3-drawer Tarva dressers. They started off an unfinished pine with legs. I primed and painted them, and then sawed off the hideous legs so that they’d be the perfect height for bedside tables! I found the streamline hardware from Anthropologie. And then there’s the “headboard.” This piece is truly sentimental to me because my “Pa” made it. It’s really a screen divider, but I just released the sheer panels so it could be a makeshift headboard for now. It really gives that empty wall some character! The Abstract on the side of the bed is made by yours truly. See the blogpost here.
I love this little vignette I created on one side of my bed. The brass scales and brass pineapple are both vintage finds that I got for a steal! I love the scales because they have the federalist styling and they also represent my zodiac sign. And I don’t even have to explain my love for pineapple decor right now. (Me and the rest of the of the interior design world– am I right?)
My foo dogs!! I absolutely adore these guys. I waited, and searched, and waited, and searched some more before having these beaute’s land in my little digital lap! Actually a lovely InstaBlogger tagged me in a post saying they were on sale at One King’s Lane temporarily. I’m so glad I saw the tag and I scooped them up as fast as I could! I also adore my flashy gold playing cards. They end up as bookmarks more than they do played with, but that’s a-okay by me!
This is my little accessory nook. I love all the small details, and of course I love all my jewels! The pineapple wall art is a DIY from a stencil. 🙂 The candle sticks are super affordable from Ikea. I love, love, LOVE my acrylic earring and bracelet holder, as well as my little unicorn ring holder.
Look at that little guy! ❤
I’ve had this jewelry box since I was a tot! It’s another very sentimental piece of mine, because it’s from my dad’s jewelry store here in Atlanta. Check out Cachet Fine Jewelry here.
I might have a small Michael Kors watch addiction.
I already did a post about my Ikea hack desk here, but I wanted to display the styling one more time with better photographs. Hope you enjoy!
Of course I still feel that it’s a work in progress, but I’ll probably always feel like that. I just think it needs more on the walls. I saw a lovely captain’s mirror DIY hack on Instagram that I want to try next. I think they’d be a perfect addition over my bedside dressers.
I hope you enjoyed my little room tour! Updates to come in the future!
