Flowers, porcelane, candles, pillows, little rugs and everything "chick".
Well, I am not an interior decorator, but I think the most beautiful home interiors are a good balance between the masculine and feminine energy.
Because when everything becomes too precious and delicate it also becomes unpractical.
I have this narrow space between the two big windows in my bedroom. I was wondering where to find a half round table... second hand ... could not find anything in the net... not in Marktplaats, not in E-bay... nowhere. After months searching for it, I decided to forget about finding one. At least for a while...
And now a good joke below:
Er... Actually I have passed the limits of curvylicious hahah !
I adore them.
An old little sauce from my husband's granny...
Voilà ! A pale pink candle adds a touch of romance.
A Russian pot with a mytical figurine...
I think I have to order slipcovers in linen.
My night stand. I try to keep it quiet, with whites, creams, and black. This piece of frniture was too scary white, so I added the lace I had purchased many years ago in Brugges. The Tiffany lamp I lately started to find too childish. I am looking in the net (Etsy, Amazon, etc.) for a vintage model in black and offwhite/beige or cream. Something calmer and more classic and elegant than... mushrooms. (Psst ! The paper bin is now a socks bin, I have already posted about it HERE.)
The rose is fake, and from Danish brand Sia.
The most beautiful (fake)flowers / plants / bouquets I have ever seen are always from Sia.
I bought it in the Bijenkorf during sales last week.
Just like the pink candle, the rose adds another touch of romance in the room.
These both I have found in Germany. Also, unexpectedly.
I just walked around downtown in Mannhein and then... that's it, I must have it !
(Note the left side: hubby keeps only a lamp and an alarm clock/ radio - no little pots needed !). Now, it is time you ask me: how is HIS (office/closet) room ???
It is tiny. Really tiny.
Among his very pretty objects it is this bear his parents had given to him during their travels in the US (it is an native American work of art) and the coral dragon from Hong Kong. The photo frame and pencil/pen holder I have found in Zara Home (yes, I more or less always shop in the same places - why not ?). The round pot below with details in gold are from Jakarta.
Above: the office / closet room with the door open and...
It makes good companion to the African basket don't you think ???
Above and below: I love adding some pop or red colour. I think the chair and a couple of boxes do that very well. Otherwise it is too matte and monotonous.
I really love this postcard I have brought from Brazil. I was in my early twenties and studying French at Alliance Française. It is an advertisement postcard from A.F ("Je t'aime" - I love you it is much more charming speking this way") and the colour really pleased me all these years. One day I spotted the green and red paper case in Vroom & Dreesman and immediately I remembered about this postcard I had for more than 15 years. I think the green and the red from the postcard, file case and the chair all work very well together.
That it. Little by little I am putting my bedroom (and my home) together. I still need an old wardrobe from my old house we decided to leave there until the house is sold. My husband's office/ closet is 95% ready. My little girl's bedroom is 60% ready (missing a sofa bed and shelves... again, they are in the old house). My son's room is 90% ready (aaah, men are so easy !)
******I don't know about you, but posting all these photos has made me exhausted ! It took me three days (!!) to finish this post. Work, kids, house keeping and blogging. I am exhausted !!!
