Bedroom Reveal....ta dah!

Hi everyone!
Just stopping in to finally reveal our bedroom makeover.
It is mostly finished, just a few minor details to add/re arrange, but basically, it's done.

my free wardrobe came up a treat in the 'Storm Cloud' grey that I am loving right now.

I still have to add the hardware to my bedside table, but I washed it in the 'Storm Cloud' grey also.
It gives it such a soft look and that's is what I wanted in here
....totally restful.

Another glimpse of my freebie robe.
I am still thinking the fireplace will be white and the breast above will be grey.
What do you think?

For the time being until that is decided on, I have added my very old French newspaper insert above
and of course what restful room would be complete without candles, right?

Mics little bedside came up  treat in the washed grey also and the blue and white china knobs just add a little colour to it.

Our French doors have had a coat of white paint and were flung open today to catch the warm sun.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring here in Australia and I am so excited to have the doors open each day again =0)
That wall you see there will have some Botanical prints on it very soon.

Here is the Toile lumbar cover I whipped up while waiting for the paint on the doors to dry.
It is linen toile on the front, which has a very light grey to it, and raw linen on the back. I stuffed it so it was not smooth, like they did in the old days before polyester inserts and the like.
I like the lumpiness to it. It is soooo soft.

Here's a closer look

My fave part is the doona cover!
It was so cheap and looks wonderful. I bought some latte sheets and they really crisp up the white.
I am normally a white sheet girl, but thought I'd go for a little change for Spring.

So, even thought the room is not 100% complete, I am loving it so far.

The white has made a HUGE difference and once I add some more texture and a little Jasmine project I have for my side table, it will be perfect for us.
Let me know what you think. I love hearing what you have to say =0)
Have an awesome day guys! =0)


  1. So so gorgeous! You've inspired me!
    I love the doona cover too! And I will probably start looking for one!

    thanks for sharing, it's a great transformation.


  2. Really beautiful! So peaceful and serene. How wonderful to have a fireplace in your bedroom and also love the French doors that you can open up to the lovely outdoors. I like the latte sheets with the white and your storm cloud armoire. Nice touches throughout. Your toile lumbar pillow is the crowning jewel! Beautifully done, Ness!

  3. I love it Ness! What a dreamy place to wake up to....all you need is Geeves to bring you in a freshly made coffee & you'd be set!

  4. What a stunning bedroom! It is just beautiful. I love the white, the toile, the grey.

  5. Your bedroom is looking beautiful.I also love the doona cover and I would paint the fireplace white.

  6. It all looks beautiful. I like the idea of a white mantel with a grey chimney breast behind. Very nice!

  7. What about the lovely grey on the fireplace as well? It is so divine - I'm off to get some of that lovely hue tomorrow as have some painting to do over the weekend. I love the combo of white, grey and even some silver added in. The hydrangeas are heaven sent - my fav flower of all time - I have been busy planting some up ready for spring growth. Yay for throwing open the doors - happy spring form tomorrow.

  8. OH LoVeLy, it's just gorgeous, light & airy. Congratulations. What a treat, love Posie
