French inspired master bedroom and dressing room....


Still working on finishing up with the small little details that make things interesting in our newly renovated master bedroom, bath and dressing room... I decided to keep my French bedroom set...it was purchased about twenty years ago at an estate sale in West Palm Beach, Florida....while we were on vacation, the sale came up right next to our rental vacation property....it is a beautiful putty colour with slight touches of gold accents...I love it today as much as I did then...

It included a King headboard, double dresser and mirror, bachelor chest, two end tables and vanity and stool....it was a great find!

The entrance to my walk in closet/dressing room with a beautifully etched door from Paris, France...the glass panel was installed in a new door, after I found it would be to expensive to work with the existing imperfections of the over eighty year old door! The glass has a peacock and formal gardens hand etched into the glass...

The new space is 11'x8', so there is space for a stool, a little silver chest which I have repurposed for jewellery, as well as plenty of closet space for shoes and clothing...

The Italian chandelier hung in my dining room before the renovation...again, I reused as much as I could...because the closet has a rather large window, I keep the linen shade closed most of the time...privacy too!

It is difficult to take better photos in such a small space, but I hope you can get a feel for what I hoped to accomplish in this small corner I call my own!
Everything, organized, in full view and pretty! What every girl dreams of....
