Effortlessly chic & natural style bedroom

An effortlessly chic & natural style bedroom

I recently re-decorated our bedroom to create a more natural style bedroom and found out that our home in London will soon be featured in the UK edition of Grazia magazine (mid-July issue 688).

News that, in the middle of the renovations of our home in France, got me super excited.

When I left London a few months ago, I was feeling extremely tearful and grateful at the same time. We had so many happy years there as a family…
To the extent that I ended up kissing our walls.
Have you done this before!? If not, you should try, it’s good karma :-)

Here I was saying goodbye to a home, I had loved and cherished. Our first family home.

It was where I first painted Mila’s bedroom walls in dark grey when no-one was using dark colours in a child’s bedroom. Where I finally designed our first (and probably not the last) Tadelakt bathroom.

We also completely transformed the old 80s kitchen to create an inviting and open-plan kitchen filled with natural light.
Last but not least, we converted the loft into a spacious bedroom with black floorboards and added en-suite bathroom.

A few months before heading back to France to start a new chapter of our Life (which turned out to be a great move on so many levels), I also re-decorated several rooms. Rooms that I never got around to show you so I’m glad you’ll be able to see some of it in Grazia.

Until the magazine comes out, here is a picture of our bedroom in London and you can see how the bedroom looked before here.An effortlessly chic & natural style bedroomAn effortlessly chic & natural style bedroomAn effortlessly chic & natural style bedroom

I really loved these natural wood side tables (Indskud sideboard tables by Skagerak) which softened the room and suited the low-level bed we had then.
For those who asked me before, our super king mattress is from EVE.
The wooden bead necklace hanging on the door was made by my mum. Just contact me if you wish to order one.
The stonewashed linen bedding in natural hues was gifted to me by Cultiver, an Australian company that has gorgeous hues in their collection.

The large picture on the wall is a portrait I took of my daughter Mila for my upcoming photography exhibition “People from The Sea”.
