Look out for Kylie’s posts for the next 3 days – her tour of her Brisbane, Australia home continues tomorrow with her office!
Post 3: Bedroom
Just like our living areas, when we bought our home in Brisbane, Australia, three years ago, it, too, had been ‘blessed’ with ugly beige walls and vertical blinds, and blue–grey carpet. On the plus side, the room was HUGE — so huge to we spent many months trying to work out how to effectively use the space (other than for sleeping!).
Like the living areas, the first step was to paint over the beige with a colour to complement the carpet. As I’m not much of a fan of office spaces within bedrooms, we decided that we’d make good use of the space by creating a reading area with a chair, lamp and side table. We also eventually had plantation shutters installed in the bedroom too, as the room has large sliding doors opening on to a balcony (like the living room). I generally keep the theme black and white in here (as you can see by the two different quilt covers), with a splash of red for accessories.
Hope you enjoy this home tour! Some of the accessories in our bedroom include the two wallpaper panels (a wedding gift from Terese from designed to a T), a bunny rabbit mirror from Lightly, little bone china figures from Have You Met Miss Jones?, vintage suitcases (one of which holds all the drawings and paintings I did in kindergarten), as well as little bits and pieces sourced from junk stores (such as the readerboard letters with our initials on the side table — a bargain at $3 each!).
This is part 3 of the tour of Kylie Challenor’s home.
