I had meant to post this months ago, the photos were taken in February, but better late than never, right?
Here is our bedroom before I got to work:
And here is a lamp that the previous owners left for us in the living room:
I had planned to spray paint it gold, but once I cleaned and polished it, I thought it was perfect as is. The small lamp shades are from House Doctor, I got them from Das Tropenhaus. We shortened the chain and placed it in our bedroom. The finished product:
We wanted to make the wall behind the bed a focal point, and went back and forth on what to do there, finally I came upon this great wallpaper from Graham and Brown. The print is called Vitality and I ordered it from InspireMyHome.co.uk. I love love love it and it almost always gets a “Wow!” when people first see it.
The dressers and nightstands are Ikea Hemnes, and we had it in our old place, the wardrobe is new. The trunk is from Habitat.
The bed is the Marriott bed, which we bought here in Germany. It is an American-style bed, with a single 200cmx200cm mattress on top of a pair of box springs. The bed is great and very comfortable. Some of the other hotels also sell American-style beds, so if you are in the market, check around. The bedding is Calvin Klein Cayman set, I brought it over in a suitcase from the US.
I picked the wall colors from colors that are in the wallpaper. I wanted the room to be warm, cozy and romantic.
I still need curtains, in every room, in fact, but haven’t found anything right yet. At some point I will get to a fabric store or curtain shop, but I haven’t done it yet.
My current project is working on the garden. Last year the inside got renovated and redecorated, this year I’m giving the same treatment to the garden. What are you working on?
