French Country Masculine Bedroom Reveal...


At last I can show you the French Country Masculine Bedroom...
Yes it has taken forever!!!
But this is what happens when one bedroom makeover turns into two!
The pink bedroom has also had an update, but that is another blog post!
So...this is how it looked
before...
And here is is after...
Unpainted wood, and a neutral colour palette..
with black accents.
The first thing chosen was the quilt and cushion.
 the duvet...
then the curtains.
The crown cushion, and quilt are from Wallace Cotton.
The curtains from Briscoes.
An extra curtain was purchased to make a Roman blind for the window above the bed.
 The etching (top picture) is one I have had for many years,  
but the French word picture is from the Etsy.
This etching is so old it has watermarks, 
but I think it just adds to the character of the picture.
 These French place names are inspiration...
For me to visit France one day!
Initially I put this orchid on the side table...
But changed it to another orchid in a cream pot with black detail,
because it had more of a masculine feel.
And moved the flying pig from the Red Lounge...
The black and white framed photos are above each side table...
And if you want to print them just go to:
 Other accessories in the room were all things I had...
 And the funniest thing is,
this French Country Masculine room has décor pieces from other countries...
 Some gorgeous old English books...
 A French crown and metal filigree ball...
A black and white clock...
And pieces from travels to Indonesia...
 The neutral colours and wood theme continues into the ensuite shower room. 
With more of a beach feel with this original artwork I created many years ago.
 Arabella approves!
In fact, she thinks it's quite a nice place for a nap!
                             Before....                                       And after...
I am very pleased with the way it has turned out.
