Room of the Week 11.19.15

Swanky Bedroom, Source Unknown | Covet Living

That swanky little peek into that swanky little bedroom is a mystery to me; a) because I can’t find the source anywhere, but b) because I can’t quite figure out why I’m so drawn to it.  At first glance it’s not the style I’d usually go for (I’m more refined boho chic than just refined), but I think it’s lovely.  Maybe it’s the layers and layers of neutral texture – the subtle lustre of the bed’s upholstery fabric (nomnomnom), the crisp, freshly laundered white sheets, the indiscernible rose gold / amber color of the glass lamp, the (what looks like) shagreen on the nightstand, and that rug that looks like BUTTAH.  LAY-AHS – that probably has something to do with it.  It’s also the simple sophistication – the nightstand is clean-lined without being boring (see the X detail on the base?), and same with the headboard – the slightest detail (the returns/wings on either side) makes all the difference.  And the lamp’s shape is totally unique and echoes the x on the nightstand.  OR, maybe it’s that almost everything in this image is the color of a fizzy glass of bubbly.  It also could be that I haven’t seen this cycle the Pinterestphere 99,000x, so – praise sweet baby Jesus – it’s fresh on my eyeballs.  Regardless, it’s glam without being the least bit fussy, and je love it.

I’ll go back to kanthas and boho beach chic now, but I had to rap about this for a sec. Hope you guys are having a great week!  It is SEH almost Friday… hey girl heeeeeeeey 🙂
