Bombshell Boudoir

My current project is the Master Bedroom. As you have seen from my previous post, I like a fun/casual atmosphere in most of my rooms. For the bedroom, I want to go a little more tranquil and sexy. My muse for this project is the one and only goddess of sultry sexiness: Bridgitte Bardo

Here are a few other visionary inspirations that I will pull from:

love the softness

love the layers and hits of gold

Love the industrial vibe of the lighting (chandelier and table) coupled with the muted tones

If you do not read this magazine...START.

My color palette will be a mix of ballet slipper pinks, soft grays, a hit of black and possibly one pop of color. I plan on keeping the walls a creamy white (such as Pocket Watch White by Ralph Lauren). The fabrics, lamps and furniture/accessories will be a perfect juxtaposition of clean lines and modern glamour.

For the bedding:
A classic white down comforter from Ralph Lauren Home. The Stella Quilt from West Elm in Oatmeal (pinky undertone). It has a subtle shimmer inspired by 1920s Fortuny pleated fabrics. Lucca Shams from Anthropologie in a soft washed velvet with pink/taupe stitching and Belle Epaque sheets in white (best sheets ever). White Flokati pillows coupled with a gold metallic leather and ponyhair bolster pillow (sounds uber cra-cra but trust works)

I will use these amazing Italian Murano glass lamps purchased at a local estate sale. They are also featured in the book Glamorous Rooms by Jan Showers. It's hard to see in the picture but the glass is full of controlled bubbles flecked with 24K gold dust.

Other items will include a black lacquer ornate mirror, new bedside tables (undetermined at this time).

Something I still need to figure out is overhead lighting. We currently have ceiling fans in both the sleeping area and sitting area. I CAN'T stand ceiling fans. They must come out and need to be replaced by a really cool overhead fixture (maybe like the one pictured in the inspiration photo above). Pass along any ideas.

Unfortunately you will not see the real life "reveal" for several weeks. We are lining up the painters now. As mentioned above, there is a seating area that is part of our bedroom. I will feature it's "vision" sometime later this week as to not make this post go on forever. Hope you enjoyed!


  1. I'm stealing that 2nd pic from's amazing. Let's gold leaf your bed...just kidding.

  2. These are all so beautiful...really loving the "soft" image....not to mention your blog's name...too cute!

    1. Hi Sue (The Zhush)! Thanks for the comment. I'm a huge fan. As you can see I'm a new blogger (only 4 posts)...wish me luck. I ordered your Brass Wall Flower Art pieces last year and love them. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I love that color palette as well. I'm in the process of using much of the same, just with more of a Restoration Hardware/Pottery Barn vibe. Congrats on the new blog! Your neighbor....

  4. You have some great ideas. Glad you are incorporating some pink (my favorite color). What a find on those lamps!!
    Can't wait to see the end product.
