I digress. Anyhoo…I’m pleased as punch to be here and very excited to share a little bedroom make-over a la maison Lindsey….yes, this post is based around Lindsey’s own room…turns out she’s looking for a little change and was hoping I could come up with something…fingers crossed.
To start with, Lindsey sent me photos of room elements that she wants to keep in the space…
but she did say I could change or leave some out if they didn’t work with my plan.
I’ll tell you right off that bat that I kept everything, with the exception of the mirror…the colours just didn’t work with the scheme I had in mind…more on that later.
To start with, I immediately found what I believe to be the perfect yellow accent fabric…otherwise known as Rubie Green Marilyn and went from there…I built on the yellow and grey by adding in a shot of pale blue and a hit of warm magenta because I thought, why the heck not…EVERY space deserves a little hit of pink.
And after a little maneuvering/shopping/searching/planning, this is what I put together…
So here’s how it works…
RG Marilyn for the curtain panels and Tillinghast for the bedding, a custom headboard upholstered in charcoal grey (and I’m thinking piped in white,) Lindsey’s existing dresser painted out in that gorgeous magenta, a zebra rug because everyone needs at least one, a gorgeous vintage pale blue bench at the foot of the bed to pick up the blue in that chair fabric she already has, mirrored bedside tables to up the glam factor, black and gold lamps…again for girly glamour, a gold modern chandelier from Jonathan Adler to balance out the flirty feminine Anthrophologie mirror over the dresser, a gorge photograph from Elle Moss (I’ve been wanting that beauty for a looooong time) and finally some great patterned accent pillows from Aphro Chic…oh and some fur ones too…they’re always necessary.
I’m SO hoping Lindsey likes it and thank her tons and tons for having me…I had a ball putting this together!
Needless to say I adore the ideas she has come up with, I have been eyeing that chandelier for awhile and love the yellow and pink – I am just pleased as punch! Thanks so much Christine, come back anytime! XOXO
