A Shabby Chic Boudoir by Live Laugh Love
Growing up I shared a bedroom with my older sister. We fought ferociously, each vying for claim on wardrobe space and square footage. We had wood chip wallpaper which I’d pick off by my side of the bed and a hard wearing brown carpet that would be littered with a degree of pens, paper and Sylvannian Families. My childhood bedroom more a war zone, I never really got around to having a proper girly room. No wonder these days, I’m drawn to pretty boudoir knick-knacks and keen to feminise the bedroom I share with my other half of a bloke.
Once over I would have cringed at the sight of floral bed linen. Now, Cath Kidston is my print designer of choice, her cabbage roses being the quintessential look of a country inspired theme. Faded pastels and whitewashed paint become the soothing backdrop, while vintage florals and crystal pendants accent lamp shades and cushions. My boudoir of choice is relaxed and beautiful, unpretentious yet graceful.
The shabby chic inspired Live Laugh Love approached me recently to taste a sample of their homewares and gifts. I spent hours perusing the website, literally engrossed in the departments of hanging hearts, candle holders, photo frames and bathroom accessories. Deciding on my favourite pieces was going to be testing!
Instead of opting for one large piece, I wanted to select a mixture of goodies, and it was pretty hard choosing only because the products are so reasonably priced! In the end I went for these which cost me a little over £30:
|Decorative Glass Bottle with vintage kittens|
|Giant Tealight Holder with etched diamond design|
|Ceramic Trinket Dish with little bird|
|Ceramic Heart Dish|
|Home Sweet Home Hanging Key|
