Hello there, its Jeska from Lobster and Swan here. Firstly I want to say thank you so much for the lovely guest bedroom design the FBC girls put together for my blog, it's so beautiful! Now the girly room is sorted, French style furniture and all, I am turning my attention to the main bedroom. This time around, the flowers and frills are out, and I was happy to find that there are lots of things over at The French Bedroom Company which most boys including mine would approve of. After living in very feminine surroundings for the last eight years it's only fair that I tone down the chintz! We would like to keep the room looking simple, fresh and inviting, with only a couple of items of French furniture, and a few mismatched items to finish it off, so here are my five FBC wishes for our new bedroom:
1. Rusty Brown Icelandic Sheepskin Rug: £90. 2. Souk Souk Candle £25. 3. Bless Your Heart Cushions (pair): £45.
4. Tiana Boudoir Cushion: £40. 5. Ensconced White Wall Light: £99. 6. Emily Knitted Throw: £85.
7. Karma Wall Mirror: £280. 8. Temperley Scented Candle: £30. 9. Fight Me Grande Wall Sconce: £295
Evening light - I chose a different wall lamp for each side of our shabby chic French beds. For mine the Ensconced White Wall Light and for the boy the Fight Me Grande Antler Wall Light. Lamps are a no go as our naughty cats just seem to like smashing them off onto the floor and I love soft side lighting instead of using overhead light.
Something special - A Souk Souk Candle to flicker a patterned glow and a Temperley candle with all my favourite scents orange, bergamot, cedar wood vanilla, patchouli. Shabby chic furniture rarely gets better accessories.
A place to snuggle - with grey linen luxury bedding in mind I though a couple of each of these Bless Your Heart Pretty Cushions and Tiana Boudoir Cushions would pile up into a lovely cosy nest when partnered with the the Emily Knitted Throw.
Something soft under foot - nothing feels better on bare feet than super soft sheepskin so I instantly fell for the lovely Rusty Brown Icelandic Sheepskin Rug.
Reflecting the light - the Karma Wall Mirror with its delicate floral detailed frame and distressed silver colour will give a bohemian glint to our soft grey walls.
