Getting palatial grandeur into your boudoir doesn't always mean investing in an emperor carved French bed, or toile-de-jouey wallpaper on every wall... A gloriously decorative French mirror, screen or trimmed cushion could give you all the detail you need.

Whether your boudoir's already filled with French style furniture or not, a showstopping stunner of a decorative mirror will change your space entirely - either by finishing the scheme with a bang, or creating its own "zone" in the room - perhaps a pair of wall lamps either side or some bold patterned wallpaper behind on the wall it sits against - you could be inspired to create a whole new area of interest in the room on the boringest of blank walls.
You can also change your space with a decorative carved panel or bedroom screen - our dishevelledly distressed yet decadent styles look as though you've left no stone untirned at the reclamation yards to uncover an antique-style, packed with pretty carved details (but in fact you've just clicked a few buttons and ordered one from the site!). Use them in a room with your shabby chic furniture for practical or pretty reasons - section off an area of room by using panels as a screen, or frame and highlight a stunning sofa or bed by mounting panels on the wall behind them - this extra elegant layer will pep up the style stakes.
