SEXY STYLING - CHAMPAGNE FOR TWO


I am obsessed with chic black & white decor. More than that, I believe everyone deserves a little bit - or a lot! - of luxury in their own homes, and especially in their bedrooms.

My bedroom is my sanctuary. There is nothing better than getting in my comfy and beautiful bed after a long day of work - How do I do it? Making my bed is part of my morning routine. It's rarely missed. Brush my teeth, shower, put on clothes and make the bed. I don't leave my bedroom without this final step and it works! Does it look like a hotel room? Maybe. And there's nothing wrong with that. I like glamour. I like luxury. And in the bedroom, I like sexy.

Why not have a splendid life?

The latest addition to my bedroom decor, came from a fabulous brand I found through Instagram. Black & White sophistication is what Bombardier Designs is all about. Their list of chic products include soy candles, silver trays, marbleized cups and personalized pillows. I wanted them all! But those initial pillows?! It was love at first sight.

When I opened the package, I immediately knew I needed to create a sexy atmosphere around them. And, what's sexier than champagne for two in bed? Are you looking for an easy anniversary celebration or date night idea? Here you have it! Bonus points if you surprise your partner with a personalized gift.

TIP: Style a tray with your favorite flowers, candles and two champagne flutes. And use that ice bucket you save "for special occasions".  It would take you only five minutes and I promise it will be fun ;)

What do you think? Would you dare including some sexy styling at home? I say DO IT! And then tell me how it went! jaja! Love your home. Enjoy your space. Pamper yourself. xx.

One Room Challenge - Week IV (OMG!!)


Hello there!

Welcome to my page! If this is your first time here you have to know that I'm immersed in the One Room Challenge craziness these days. What is it? Well, a bunch of fabulous designers and bloggers transforming one room in 6 short - ridiculously short!! - weeks. This is week 4 for my Chic Master Bedroom project, and OMG! it's been a hard week. You can see my previous posts and progress here, here and here.

So, here we go again... this week was full of ups and downs, endless hours of shopping, getting packages, trying new items, returning the items, getting them in a different color, trying them again - you know how it goes. At some point I was completely overwhelmed.

Forget it!

I'm not doing this anymore.

This is INSANE.

And then I remembered that I bought those amazing pillows that are still in the trunk of my car! And that the curtain rod still has to get installed! OH MAN!!! I kept going for the sake of beautiful pillows and curtains, I guess...

I've been desperately looking for the perfect set of sheets and light fixtures. I almost picked up a vintage one I saw at a thrift store, but I decided to go a little bit more sober with a classic semi flush one. Black and white all over the place. I hope it looks as pretty when it gets installed! :) Right now I'm waiting and waiting for the mailman to knock on my door with this beauty.

The other big thing about the One Room Challenge is the amount of inspiration and cool ideas around. I really recommend checking on all participants. Seriously. They are such a bad influence! haha! I mean, every time I see one post I came up with another idea and cool project to include in my list. You see? This is the reason why I feel so behind!

Latest crazy idea: WALLPAPER!!! Can I make it happen in 2 weeks??? I really don't think so, but hey! I ordered some samples and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I think I'd go for the black one. It's so perfect! Check it out.

So, even if the wallpaper is not happening I will continue with my TO DO list which looks somehow like this:

  • Put up rods and curtains. Check if they actually look as good as I thought.
  • Decide on wallpaper / paint. Paint / place wallpaper!
  • Frame DIY art. Put it up.
  • Find the perfect sheets. Now.
  • Wait patiently for light fixture to arrive. Call the store to make sure it will get here on time. Be nice to customer service. Put light fixture up.
  • Finish gallery wall.
  • Think again about the full length mirror - the only thing I promise to the hubs and haven't gotten yet (!).

That! (phew!) I have to say though, it was SO MUCH FUN to open the brushes box and paint again. I forgot how much I loved it, and I'm definitely going to continue doing so :)

Thoughts?? What do you think of the wallpaper crazy idea?! Shall I do it?? 

Thanks so much for the support!! 

This has been an amazing experience :) If you want more details on my progress and challenges follow me on Instagram! Also, check for #oneroomchallenge. You won't believe the amaziness around it!

Let's talk about bedrooms today, better say let's talk about beds!

Who doesn't like a comfy and fluffy bed at the end of the day? Soft pillows and sheets. Calm and welcoming spaces to rest properly. I like my bedroom as my sanctuary, and lately I've been obsessed with these gorgeous upholstered bed frames and headboards. There are so many options out there now a days! Any color, any fabric you want. My choice? Charcoal! What do you think?

Charcoal headboards combined with white or dark walls. Neutrals, wood, metals! All kinds of textures. I've been inspired by all these images and I'm still trying to figure out the right combination for our bedroom. 

I'm loving the combination of sheets and comforters, lights and darks all together! And hey! dark walls again?! There's something about dark colors in the bedroom. I think it's sophisticated and sexy. Would you dare to paint your bedroom walls in these tones?

On my part, I would go with white paint, neutral bedding and yes! a charcoal headboard. It took me forever to choose the right one, but I'm happy to say that is already on its way! :) I can't wait to share some progress with you all!

Thanks for all your comments and cool energy on my space decor and transformation. I'll reveal some rooms with all of you soon! xx.
