Bohemian Gypsy Bedroom

Ever since I did this post, I've felt my bedroom is practically naked.  I need so much MORE!  Today I'm going to hang some shimmery purple sheer curtains (from Ikea) over the bed - for a start.

This picture is from Interior Alchemy - the maximalist's bible. 

I like this idea of starting with a store-bought mosquito net and then embellishing with fabric.

Light and airy with a little chandelier is pretty.

When we first moved into this house I painted the bedroom green to re-create the color scheme of this room.  The green was way too much for me though and I changed it to a dusty purple/grey.

Love the Indian fabric in this one. 


The totally tented boudior!

You're a girl after my own heart! My bedroom isn't complete with burgundy velvet and sari curtains, and tons of silk and velvet pillows. I like it lush!

try doing the curtains with oriental fabric and still being able to match the different sides of room so far it is very cool , but a pain to figure out how to bring together cherry blossoms on one side of the room an Chinese dragons on other to meet both in the center .:) still in the works but looking cool so far .
