Our bedroom Spring update in France

Stylish bedroom update with a new print

As soon as I recovered from the low blood pressure that hit me recently and let me with very little energy for three weeks, I tackled all the things I wanted to do during Mila‘s school holidays.

After spending quite a bit of time in bed resting, I wanted to give our bedroom a new, fresh look for Spring so I finally unpacked the new stonewashed linen in pure white I got during my last trip in London. You can’t beat white for a fresh look, can you!!?Stylish bedroom update with a new print1I also added a gorgeous, new print above our bed.

To get this print made, I used Mapiful, which is a website that lets you choose any location in the world (even small town) and get it printed on a nice poster.
I just think the concept is fantastic and I can think of several friends and family members I could treat with one of those prints and a location that would mean something to them.

Bordeaux will always hold a special place in my heart.
That’s where I went to University, met my best friends, had countless, great & fun adventures and now that I’m pretty much based in France and Bordeaux is only 45 minutes from our holiday home, it felt right and the look and minimalist design of the print was just perfect for my wall.

How about you? Do you have a favourite city that you would love to have as a print?
Stylish bedroom update with a new printI also added my favourite books to get inspiration for my portrait photography, some of my favourite skincare like Aesop and these new essential oils I have been using on my face for a couple of weeks to cut down on cosmetics and skincare routine. The jojoba reminds me of the scented essential oil used to pour in our bath when we were younger, I’m not convinced by the smell of the other one but it does moisturise my skin.

I’m off to Berlin early tomorrow to be a Speaker at The Hive Blogging conference so I wish you a lovely weeken. If you decide to order a print using my special code: BODIEANDFOU, please share it on instagram with the hashtag #mapiful so I can see what it looks in your home. xoxo

    Hi, I just tried the voucher code for mapiful and it didnt seem to work? Was there a time limit on it? Many thanks

  2. What a great room redesign. Very simple and fresh. Monochrome is always an effective and timeless colour choice/ theme for rooms – and works especially well in rooms where you want a relaxing and peaceful feel.

    Lovely room! Would you please tell me that gray wall color? It’s gorgeous!

  4. Absolutely lovely! The white and dark gray are so striking, but also have such a softness to them, which always seems to be a nice touch in a bedroom. The print you had made adds something unique and eye-catching without transforming the minimalist feel of the room. Gorgeous!

    What a gorgeous colour. For once dark looks bright!

    Such a gorgeous colour scheme, I think people often feel intimidated by the stark contrast of black and white, it can sometimes feel a bit bleak so grey is a great, softer alternative – such a calming, sophisticated look. Good job!
