Boudoir Inspiration

All of the planning I’ve done lately for my wedding has made me realize how valuable true rest really is.

In order to accomplish hours of uninterrupted relaxation and sleep, I’m starting to plan for a mini bedroom facelift. In scouring thread counts and perky prints, it’s clear that the quality of the bedding itself is imperative.  Of course, a few stylish accessories don’t hurt either.  Here are three of my favorites “looks” to inspire.  Wishing you all a restful weekend!

Above:  A neutral palette with a touch of metallicThe Ava Print Duvet by Frette works well with this Pottery Barn mercury bed-side lamp and Anthropologie Luxe Shine Wallpaper.  I love blue accents for the bedroom; they are calming!

Below: Basic and beautiful, black and white.  This timeless set from Frette is aptly named, Hotel Classic.  It is definitely a luxurious addition to any abode.  Also from Frette, the Malick Cushion (which truly makes my heart skip a beat).   For a bit of a modern touch, the Reactive Glass Lamp from Anthropologie does the trick!

Below:  Lazy Sunday afternoon worthy decor.  The look is complete with a soft wool and angora Double Face throw by Frette, whimsical Tea Cup and the Festival Rug; both from Anthropologie.  This trio is best enjoyed on a rainy day while reading your favorite book.  Can’t you just feel the “cozy”?

Books: The Lost Art

It was the end of an era yesterday as Encyclopedia Britannica announced that they will stop publishing their print addition after 244 years.    It made me think about books in general and the beauty of the printed page.   Being a true book lover, I still appreciate crisp pages filled with words to be consumed.

Although Britannica will continue to focus on their digital edition and reading is very much alive with digital readers (even I broke down and got a Nook), it’s a sad moment just the same.   I am dedicating this post to the printed book in hopes you’ll pick up a few weathered favorites at a flea market and spend an afternoon reading!

The photo above is of some of my own books.  See below for beautiful collections for sale that are so pretty they’ll surely inspire you to read!
