Our Bedroom

Finally *drum roll please* 
I finished...
and sewing and hanging stuff 
(in) (for) the bedroom.

Wanna see the results?

Originally I wanted to paint the walls peacock blue. Yep, I knew it was risky but I also originally planned on keeping every thing else in the shades of white with some natural wooden items thrown in.

Then I had a talk with a shop assistent at the store who told me those bold colors aint gonna happen with mineral colors. So I chose to go with charming lilac. But as you can see the final choice was white. And green. Originally I even wanted to paint one wall mustard and the other ones white but since it's the bedroom and my boyfriend insisted on deciding on a more calming relaxing color I had to come up with a way to incorporate some green/mustard eye-catchers. Hence the colorful triangles.

The curtains were made by me. I just cut some bed sheets from IKEA (I liked the pattern) and sewed it into a curtain. Which was a heck of a lot work. But it definitely paid off. I like the mix of the white-and-red curtains with the green-mustard-triangle wall.

The pictures are also made by me except the one on the very right. It pictures Bob Dylan during The Rolling Thunder Review which was a tour he did. The piece of art in the middle was painted by me in 5 minutes. It says "GO TO BED YOUNG DREAMER" on a background of mintgreen and rose swirls.

The one on the left is a painting I made a few months ago. I will post about it soon.

I especially love the wreath. It adds a totally different vibe to the wall and is a great contrast to the frames. The artwork in between are some carvings of my great-grandpa I found at my granma's house.

The old record player is a contribution from my boyfriend's grandpa. And the reason I love it so much is because I can listen to the LPs I chose to every stinkin' time I want (because it's in the bedroom since my boyfriend is a busy bee and otherwise would get distracted) - plus I can be lazy laying in bed listening to the birds tweeting outside my window.

Out of all the rooms in our appartment I think it's my favourite. 
Especially since I put more work into it then I did with the other ones. 
Which basically means that during the day 
I can practically call it my own.

    Hi Jay,

    Your room turned out great. I have sloped eaves ceilings as well. They can be quite tricky to decorate around.

    I followed you over from the 1929 Charmer linky party. I would love if you stopped by my blog.

    Thanks for sharing and keeping decorating!

  10. Oh wow!  What a great space!  I love all the colors!  

    Thanks for linking up last week.. Im featuring you tomorrow :) 

  11. Thank you so much. We have sloped ceilings in our living room too and the main thing I hate about it is that it drastically reduces the place available to hang artwork.

    Heading over to your blog. :)

  12. How exciting! Thank you.

  13. Your room looks so relaxing and dreamy, I especially like the art work on the walls. I made some art for my bedroom it says 'the sun couldnt rise without, darling' its a bit daggy but I just love it. We can be a bit daggy in our bedrooms anyways, there all about us and our private space

  14. I love it! I really like your curtains... and the lantern :) You know me, I'm a sucker for all white decorating!

  15.  Both from IKEA. :) Yep, I knew you'd like it. ;)

  16.  Thank you. It's always the pieces of art we made by ourselves that we love most. (Sorry it took me so long to reply to your comment)


Feel free to leave some love.
