More bedrooms for L.

Two very different ideas, that somehow became one in my head. Lately I’m seeing white and/or grey bedrooms with monochromatic textured bedspreads – either boho crochet or sleek quilts – everywhere. They might seem like unlikely bedfellows (see what I did there?) but as the first room demonstrates they can play nice.  Though usually it’s one or the other.

I know, I know – you’re already a fan, where have I been, etc etc.  Always last on the boat.  But just in case there’s anyone else out there who hasn’t twigged in yet: the marion house book is an interior/life/style blog with lots of gorgeous inspiration photos, fun ideas, and (my absolute favourite!) before-and-after reno pics.  Who doesn’t love a makeover?  The blog owner Emma has a style I adore, mixing modern and bohemian to create an effect that is very clean and warm and organic.

Now.  What really jumped out at me were the shots of Emma’s home in Toronto.  LOVE.  That bedroom is killing me, I mean it.  The yellow quilt, the striped sheets!  The perfect shade of grey walls!  Those pillow cases, seen many times in many beautiful rooms, only now do I covet them.  I even want her plant.  HGTV featured her home, created with husband Myles and son Henry, in a home tour back in May, check it out for more photos.
