At the moment I am stuck in renovation hell. The master bedroom is currently in the process of having a false ceiling fitted due to the existing ceiling becoming unstable. This follows hot on the heels of 6 weeks of fitting out the attic and a full replastering of the bedroom walls. Needless to say my home looks nothing like the above picture of fragrant vintage darling Pearl Lowe in her perfect vintage bedroom in her perfect vintage home. My house is dust ridden and in a continuous state of upheaval, putting paid to my increasing urges to nest.
I am trying to overlook my personal frustration by focusing on the end result. To that end, I have spent many a spare hour on Pinterest, Tumblr, Flickr etc, seeking out inspiration. Those of you who have followed this blog for a while will know I can't resist a bit of bad taste. The look I am aiming for could be described as 'kitschy boudoir stripped down' or 'kitschy boudoir lite' if you will. I want the best of both worlds. I want flamingos and lurid 70's florals set against a backdrop of pure white walls and furniture. I want clean lines and lightness accented with candy pink, turquoise and orange. I haven't found any pictures that are exactly what I am after so I have put together a collection of images that have inspired me in different ways* Hopefully putting them together in one place might give me a coherent 'moodboard' to work from.
Any further sources of inspiration/links you think I might like would be gratefully received. I can't wait to share the finished product with you.
*All photos found on Tumblr apart from 6-9 found here, 10 & 11 found here & 15 found here
If any of these images are yours please email me and I will be more than happy to credit you :)
