Style as a Souvenir: Parisian Bedroom in Amsterdam

I'm just back to work from a two week holiday...spent entirely at home. This is the first time in years that I chose to stay put instead of traveling and while I feel rested, super organized and ready to face the Fall, I am missing that inspiration boost you get from visiting a different city. I'll have to live vicariously and settle for this intriguing look at Desiree's post-vacation take on Parisian style in her lovely Amsterdam home—

I was thrilled when Desiree sent me an email sharing links to her photos - first, here are some of her shots taken in Paris:

And here are new images from her recently updated bedroom, with a definitely related design vibe:

And, in her own words, some of the style connections:

As a blogger and stylist of my own home I learned to keep my eyes and ears open for every little detail that comes my way. If you blog for some years it almost comes as a second nature. Inspiration and new ideas for your home or blog can be found on every corner.
Something I also really loved was the use of pictures. Pictures that reinforced the concept of the store. And pictures in B&W with French movie stars and models that gave me that real I am in Paris feeling I so love. But what made my heart beat faster .... were the moodboards, as in a collage of pictures glued directly on the walls and windows. Or perfectly ordered in little frames.
As I told in my previous post we did a lot of shopping, mostly as in looking around in beautiful shops and wandering through le Marais ad other quartiers. I saw some really beautiful shop interiors that inspired me to change things around in the house. These pictures are made in my bedroom.
...it has made room for a stylish black metal rack to store some of my clothes. I had it made by a blacksmith and painted it black myself. I loved to design this and the idea to have something handmade by a craftsman and especially made for me makes it a really special addition to my bedroom. Of course no big plastic or wooden hangers on here but only small and delicate ones. On the wall behind I made a moodboard with pictures I shot in Paris.
