My Flat: The bedroom accessorized

You guys always offer the nicest comments on my flat when you get glimpses of it in posts. So I thought you won't mind if I share some pics of my updated bedroom.

I've already showed you my bedroom right after it was painted. It was a bit bare back then. After two years it definitely has a more "lived in" feel. I really love getting all cozied up and reading a great book in bed now.

Bedroom
Who's afraid of prints? Not I.

Dresser
Maybe that is a Pride and Prejudice bus roll. So?

The top of the dresser
Some may say cluttered. I say eclectic.

For me, putting a room together is like finishing a knitting or sewing project. When it all comes together, and feels totally me, I get that FO high, but supersized.

(And if you think that I am just stalling with this post so I don't have to tell you about my cape progress...you are right.)

Your room is beautiful, and so very much a reflection of your personality. Mine's a hot mess right now, but I'm working on it!

Carolyn said...

I heart your flat! And your dresser! So beautiful!

Better Living said...

So well put! And I am jealous of your Anthro kids' books score!

Erin said...

I think that dresser is the first thing I wish you to leave me in your will. Cool?

Jacey said...

Your bedroom is gorgeous! I honestly don't think I can pick a favorite part. I love that your hat collection is artwork. I love your dresser. I love your colorful books. I love the birdcage in the corner.

You've got great style, but I already knew that.

I love it. I think my favorite thing is the mirrored dresser.

My goodness, that dresser is beautiful! All of it is very you (well, as much as I know about you from being internet friends). All if that is cluttered, then i am bordering on hoarding status!

Amy said...

Your room is fabulous!

Amy, I got the P&P poster from here:

She doesn't seem to have one up for sale at the moment. But I bet if you contacted her, you could work something out.

love the pops of color and prints, and fun things like the subway map.

Stacy said...

Love it. So pretty!

Melanie said...

I had this up and Kevin (who usually in no way pays attention to interior design) was oohing and aahing over your room! It looks great.

You know I adore your rooms. I love your dresser (I have a night table now in a similar style) and that pretty rainbow of books on it is too awesome for words. As is your LofL pink flowery quilt. And the yoga mat bag, which I want too...

What room are you working on next, or do you have any other projects in mind?

inspiredcyclist said...

Just PERFECT! Looks relaxing and cozy! I love it all...especially the iron bed!

Amander said...

Looks beautiful! So girly and fun.

Nantucket Dreams said...

Not cluttered at all! Perfectly delightful! Like something on hgtv!

Anne said...

Your flat is lovely! And where did you get the tube map?! I love that the lines end with flowers and leaves

Anne- I got the print of the Paris metro here:

You can tell it is fancy because the price is in euros.
