Before & After: Home Styling Part Three

25 April 2013 0


Styling your home can be the best activity ever. Trust me. It is so fun and so challenging at the same time. During my interior styling online course by Justina Blakeney I was asked to restyle five areas of my home: The coffee table and sofa (part one, see HERE), the console and bookshelf (part two, see HERE) and the bed & nightstand – today’s final part three!

As you see on my pics, my rooftop apartment has pitched roofs and my bedroom is literally stuck under one of those droops. My bedroom furniture is white and a nautical bunting (can’t be seen on the pics unfortunately) sets the tone for a maritime vibe in my nook. So I’ve decided to take the bunting’s theme as a key and style a nautical bedroom corner for the ‘little sailor’ in me.

For the bed I used various textiles to play with textures, patterns and colours. Understandably, the colour palette is muted with blues, off whites, soft greys and a dash of yellow. I combined striped bedsheets with a navy blue knit throw and a Hamam towel. My anchor cushion from H&M Home and the Whitby cushion by Mini Moderns complete the look and call for a seaside dream.

The nightstand is simple and as I would say ‘happy’. The nautical themed painting that I brought back from Provincetown sets the frame whereas the coral, the little colourful lighthouse and the succulent in the happy dotted pot recall coastal joy and and add texture, colours and the magical power of botanicals.

What do you think of my bedroom styling? It is simple, I admit, but isn’t it happy?

    Ich als Nordlicht mag den Anker und den maritimen Stil besonders…eine frische Briese nach dem langen Winter tut doch gut,oder?

    Πολυ ωραια η αλλαγή ταιριάζει με τον καιρό της Αθήνας που εχει ξεπεράσει τους 28 βαθμους C.
