Last night I drove my boyfriend and my friends in London crazy by continuously sending them photos of potential candidates for bedroom furnishings. I think they're going to have to put up with a serious home décor addiction for a while as I slowly create my new home! After a day of moving (and honestly, 3 days of not being able to hold down much food due to a bizarre winter bug I've caught), I decided to stay in on a Saturday night and indulge my new obsession. I think I spent a good 5 hours browsing the website of my all-time favourite French furnishings store, Maisons du Monde, which has some of the most beautiful country / bohemian / vintage-style furniture I've come across (and for reasonably decent prices). I already have a few pieces from them and am excited to pick out a bed! It's a non-Ikea investment that I think I'm finally at that age to make.
Given the dark wooden beams in my new bedroom as well as my plan to fill it with a lot of little treasures (meaning that the bed will need to be a solid backdrop rather than the shining star), I'm leaning towards one of the three in the collage above. I have a zillion things on my wish list for the bedroom alone - including pieces as particular as Chinese screens and bird cages! - but I think the importance of reflection as well as budget constraints mean that I will stick with the bed for now. It's times like this when I wish that I could be as resourceful and creative as Sarah from La Maison Bohème. If only I could fly her over to Paris to play my interior decorator for a day!
Are there any pieces from my Maisons du Monde mood boards above that you would love to have in your own bedroom?
