How to get the effortless look in the bedroom

Real life bedroom

Real life bedroom or How to achieve the effortless look in the bedroom after a certain someone came for a cuddle and used our bed as a practice for her gymnastic competition next week…Yet I wouldn’t change a thing because one day, she will think it’s totally uncool to come and give us a cuddle. Have a great weekend SHOP THE STORY:

WEEKEND#

I can’t tell you how much I love this bedroom. The matte black floorboards, the hues of dark and light grey stonewashed linen on the bed, the sheet of metal against the wall that becomes art…I could spend the whole weekend there. We’re off to Jarnac on Sunday to a commemorative rugby match the Club has organised in memory of my dad. A part of me is looking forward to hearing stories about him but I know this is going to be a difficult day for us all. Yesterday, the weather was so beautiful that almost forgot he was gone, for a split second, I thought it was a mistake, that he would soon come back from his daily walk and then it hit me that it wasn’t. My mum forwarded me this very well written article about the loss of a parent which you may find useful if you are going through the same thing.

5 things I want right now!

Last time I did a 5 Things I want right now, Mila and I were off to stay with some friends for a wonderful weekend and then Life happened. It has been three weeks now. Some days are good, others are bad and others really bad. I’m trying to go with the flow, to bend not to break. I feel I have little to give so the little amount goes to my family, my sister, my brother, my mum so we can try to go through this together and come out on the other side stronger, closer and eventually happy again. These days, I’m all for anything comforting and soothing…soft cashmere jumpers, soft linen to sleep in, the sweet smell of baking filling the house and things with a happy vibe.
