Two Lovely Bedrooms




I was on the Living Etc. website today and I came across these two bedrooms I love. The top one in particular is my favourite. I love the thrown together mix of patterned fabrics and vintage pieces. This style of decorating always looks unique and individual. The thing I like best in the bottom room is the cabinetry...fantastic idea for a small room don't you think?! I even love the idea of installing bookcasing around a bed in this same way.

I love the idea of cabinetry or bookcases surrounding a bed...I have a few images in my inspiration files. I am new to blogging and wish I had found your wonderful site earlier...we were in Brisbane in November and I would have loved to see your store. Next time...

I'm a big fan of loads of storage and if it can look as good as that cabinetry does, then all the better.

Thanks to you, I'm embracing empty photo frames. Love, love love the way it's been used in the top pic. Stunning room - very you!

Carole said...

Nice images Anna. Livingetc is my favourite magazine. The rooms never look contrived or over-decorated. A look I strive for but never quite manage!

Vanessa said...

I love the mix and the vintage pieces in the first image as well.

Cassandra said...

Both really lovely bedrooms - I really like how the stool, cushion and throw brings to life a relatively simple roo. Great mix of colour, ethnicity and texture.

Jody said...

lovely. thanks for the inspiration. I have bedrooms on my mind, too.

I love when people have the guts to mix patterns!

Yes I love the first photo. The dresser and everything else looks loved.

labyrinthine said...

I completely agree! I love the top photo especially, but being surrounded by books when you go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning has got to be heavenly.

Ye-es...Love the cabinetry but I have a strong averion to anything jammed against a wall like the chest of drawers in the top photo, looks so cramped and mean I always feel.Just my personal pickiness.
Pretty blog!

samia said...

Cara said...

I love the frames in the first photo, gorgeous!

Kelly Muys Wood said...

i've thought quite often of doing that with bookcases, too!

that first photo is delicious. i'm not even sure why.

Beautiful.

Halcyon House said...

I love both, but the first thing I thought of in the first room is how unusable the room looks...so cramped**...how do you access those dresser drawers? But other than that, the colors, textures and patterns...so lovely.
**I know cramped, I live in a super tiny older home (really old).

jenna said...

Love them, especially the first one. I wish my room loved like that.

silika said...

OliviaPennartz said...

I absolutely love the dresser in the top picture...especially the details on the sides! These are great bedrooms!

ღLizღ said...

that is so true anna...the cabinetry in the bottom bedroom is such a good idea. thoughtful consideration for my own bedroom. i am in love with both bedrooms, but the top is my fave.

great finds anna, i love living etc. too.
