Bedroom Makeover Ideas: Guest Post by Bijou and Boheme

I can’t even tell you how thrilled I am to have the amazing stylista Christine from Bijou and Boheme visiting Recreated today while I’m on vacation. If you haven’t been following her beautiful blog, you darn well should be! Everyday her posts send me over the moon with their original style, humour and gorgeousness (that maybe isn’t a word, but you get my drift). She is also one of my fave Tweeps on Twitter. I can’t wait for you to see what she has done for today’s post, nothing short of brilliance….so without further ado I give you…..

Hello Recreators…it’s Christine here from Bijou and Boheme and I’m so excited to be here today guesting for one of my favourite Twitter BFF’s Lindsey…she’s been on my A-list ever since she coined the brilliant #boozynostainpkgtour when talking about plans for my little kitchen party…anyone who can come up with a hashtag like that is a friend of mine.
I digress. Anyhoo…I’m pleased as punch to be here and very excited to share a little bedroom make-over a la maison Lindsey….yes, this post is based around Lindsey’s own room…turns out she’s looking for a little change and was hoping I could come up with something…fingers crossed.

To start with, Lindsey sent me photos of room elements that she wants to keep in the space…

but she did say I could change or leave some out if they didn’t work with my plan.
I’ll tell you right off that bat that I kept everything, with the exception of the mirror…the colours just didn’t work with the scheme I had in mind…more on that later.

To start with, I immediately found what I believe to be the perfect yellow accent fabric…otherwise known as Rubie Green Marilyn and went from there…I built on the yellow and grey by adding in a shot of  pale blue and a hit of warm magenta because I thought, why the heck not…EVERY space deserves a little hit of pink.

And after a little maneuvering/shopping/searching/planning, this is what I put together…

So here’s how it works…

RG Marilyn for the curtain panels and Tillinghast for the bedding, a custom headboard upholstered in charcoal grey (and I’m thinking piped in white,) Lindsey’s existing dresser painted out in that gorgeous magenta, a zebra rug because everyone needs at least one, a gorgeous vintage pale blue bench at the foot of the bed to pick up the blue in that chair fabric she already has, mirrored bedside tables to up the glam factor, black and gold lamps…again for girly glamour, a gold modern chandelier from Jonathan Adler to balance out the flirty feminine Anthrophologie mirror over the dresser, a gorge photograph from Elle Moss (I’ve been wanting that beauty for a looooong time) and finally some great patterned accent pillows from Aphro Chic…oh and some fur ones too…they’re always necessary.

I’m SO hoping Lindsey likes it and thank her tons and tons for having me…I had a ball putting this together!



Needless to say I adore the ideas she has come up with, I have been eyeing that chandelier for awhile and love the yellow and pink – I am just pleased as punch!  Thanks so much Christine, come back anytime!  XOXO
