Bedroom metamorphosis in our apartment
When Maksio - our second son appeared in the world, I decided to separate a feeding, care and sleeping area in our bedroom. How to decorate a bedroom separating such zones in it, I described in the previous entry, documenting step by step our course bedroom metamorphosis. If you want to read it, click here. Maybe it will be an inspiration for you to introduce changes in your own interior? Here you can see what the changing and nursing corner looked like, also arranged in our bedroom, a here you'll see a feeding corner right next to it with a beautiful, comfortable armchair, which I used to arrange a new bedroom decor.
Up to now, right next to our bed, on my right, was also basket of Mosesin which our Son slept. He took up very little space, and thanks to this solution I could have Maks always close to me. Now that he is bigger, it's time to arrange his own children's room and change for us, this time so that our elegant bedroom it was functional, fully adapted to our needs and told our common story.
Grays in an exotic bedroom
When, almost five years ago, together with Wojtek we moved into this house, we painted the wall in the room a dull green color, and during the previous metamorphosis we changed it to a light olive gray. That's how it was created elegant bedroom, which combined gray walls, white furniture and delicate pastel accessories.
We decided that gray bedroom we like it very much and we stayed with this color. We are still accompanied by a comfortable upholstered bedroom bed, which I like very much for its appearance, comfort and practicality - due to the fact that its backrest is tilted, it is the most comfortable bed for reading books or eating breakfast. I also love beds for the bedroom with a container for bedding. By choosing such a solution, we gain additional space to store bedding or other things that do not have a place in the house. This is a great solution, especially when we have a room with a small area.
You know that I really like pastel colors, especially shades of pink, but this time I decided on completely different colors and decided to go a little crazy. I chose the pillows in color dull blue, which he accompanies exotic bedding in intense colors, with a predominance of blue and orange. I fell in love with this combination! Although I usually choose light, subdued shades and smooth materials, I must admit that I am enchanted by this bedding and I am already planning to smuggle more designs in this atmosphere!
Wooden frames with our family photos, standing on bedside tables, replaced those in shades of blue. They stand out beautifully against a white table. Frames are an extremely small and cost-effective change, and they can beautifully change the interior! Family photos and plywood monogram from the previous one bedroom metamorphosis, make us feel exceptionally well inside.
We also replaced the handles at the tables with more atmospheric ones - elegant silver handles replaced those more suited to the exotic pattern of bedding and the new sea climate that has entered our interior.
On my side, on a small shelf under the table, a beautiful blue box with an opening lid was found, which I showed you already on Instagram. This is my hiding place for treasures - creams for evening rituals before bedtime, for which I no longer have the strength in the bathroom. Gray bedroom and blue accessories with original patterns are a perfect combination!
A dressing table in the bedroom and a reading corner
I also decided on a small table with a stool that functions as a dressing table. I placed it right next to the window so that I had access to as much light as possible while painting. It's not much space, but it's enough for me - under the lid of the dressing table I keep all the color cosmetics I have, and when I pick them up I have a mirror to paint.
The windows are gray, opaque curtains and curtains. We live in an urban environment and there are other houses around us. I wanted to gain a sense of privacy, but at the same time not obscure the light that comes through the windows too much. Opaque curtains obstruct the diverse space, introducing harmony to the bedroom, while not restricting the flow of light.
We changed the baby changing and childcare corner into a reading corner. In the place of children's dresser stood my favorite, very comfortable feeding chair and a small lamp. The armchair was perfect for the role it was purchased for. I felt perfectly in it, feeding my little son, and now it will serve me as a place to relax and read (may! I usually have time to use it as a clothes hanger).
Speaking of reading. Right next to the armchair stood a bookcase that makes ours bedroom in an exotic atmosphere it is even cozier. I have arranged the books by colors and alternating sizes on the shelves, which not only looks beautiful, but also facilitates the search for publications in our home. When Wojtek recently asked where he would find "Nowy Szafrański", I only replied "orange", and he immediately found the right position
The whole was complemented by a tree, which stood in the place where Maksiowy stood previously basket of Moses. All these elements, despite the subdued colors and simple interior, personalized our bedroom, and why the decision to change the pink to blue and focus on intense colors and exotic bedding?
Exotic bedroom in a maritime climate
The answer is simple - the reason is our love for the sea!! I am a native citizen of Gdańsk, Wojtek has lived in Gdynia almost from his birth and it was in Tricity that we met over ten years ago and fell in love with each other from the first impression, we got married for the first time and started living together - we started a family. We love ourselves and the sea on which our love began. From the attic window I can see the calm Baltic Sea. I rest and relax at the seaside, we both have a lot of wonderful memories associated with it, so we decided to transfer a part of our beloved sea also to ours elegant bedroom. We've already added blue accents to the living room. Now I have my little sea not only in the attic.
