I can finally bring to you a long overdue room tour, my own bedroom! I promised awhile back that I would share before and afters from my own home one room at a time, and I've already shared Farida's nursery, my 15 month old daughter, and this is the second room tour that I want to share.
My husband and I started looking at the design of the bedroom before our wedding, more than two years ago. We worked on the layout first, we had a great big niche in the bedroom that we decided to close off completely and turn into a custom closet. We got the space fitted wall to wall and floor to ceiling and that was the best thing we did as our room is small, as is our apartment and we try to make use of every single inch in it. The bed is actually bigger in reality than on the plan, and we ended up putting two dressers side by side instead of one because we needed the extra storage.
Then we started looking at colors, texture and styles. We wanted something dreamy, that has a little glamour & chicness to it, not too pretentious, and has some grounding. Our wedding accent color was purple but it isn't why we chose purple for this room and it wasn't only my choice, in fact, my husband asked for lavender to be our paint color and so that's where we started with our color scheme.
Then we looked online and at different stores for furniture, hardware, finishes, and furnishings and we've put it all together to achieve this dream, what I would call "structured bohemian", bedroom that's all ours.
