LPF's Bachelorette Pad: Shabby-Chic Parisian Boudoir

Possibly the most exciting thing about moving (besides starting the job of my dreams of course!) is being able to decorate a place of my own. Once I was able to visualize exactly the feel I was going for in each of my living spaces, I've been searching for the perfect decor anywhere and everywhere. I felt like I wanted my bedroom to feel cozy, stylish and "me" so I decided on a sort of shabby-chic Parisian boudoir look.

Here's a mood board of the look I'm going for and things I've purchased so far. I'm going for a color palette of white, black, and silver with pops of pink and tiffany blue.
Bachelorette Pad: Parisian Boudoir
I like the idea of a playful pop of a washed out leopard print underneath my tiered ruffled duvet and my mom's sewing pillowcases for me with maps of Paris. I have 6 or so mismatched silver frames to put black and white pictures of friends and family in above my bed. I found a beautiful, vintage mirrored tray at a thrift store where I want to create a sort of  french themed vignette. I'm also obsessing over the romantic feel of oversized cabbage roses, huge ostrich feather plumes, and prints of L'audree macaroons & paris cityscapes.
These are the images that have been inspiring me for creating my perfect bedroom (sorry for the picture ovearload; i'm just very visual!):
I'll be sure to keep everyone updated with my decorating progress once I move in! Meanwhile, if you spot any cute decor or design blogs feel free to send a link my way!
xoxo, lauren

I can't wait to see what you do with the place. I remember my bachelorette pad - it was sweet! I did it in 1930s modern.

Super cute!! And congrats on the new job! That's way exciting :)

I moved into my bachlorette pad just under two years ago and it's still coming along hehe. I went with white, black, and a sky blue. I've been trying to figure out my style but I can't seem to come up with it...I'm very into black and white fall photos and older looking lanterns. Maybe a desire to live in New England? lol

I'm currently designing my bachelorette pad as well. How did you create the mood board? I've been looking for software to create one with no luck. It looks gorgeous so far! Excited to ee the finished product.

Laura said...

Oh I can't wait to see your place! I am in the midst of decorating a new pad, too. But with a roommate so we have to combine styles. And we are on a very low budget so it isn't my dream place yet. Love the idea of a mirrored tray though!Our place definitely has a Paris theme, too.

I love this inspiration! My room is slightly shabby chic, too - pale blue, white, and chestnut with an enormous Audrey Hepburn poster. I'm looking forward to seeing how the finished room turns out.

Lauren this is going straight to my inspiration photo! I've never decorated before and am really scared about decorating my new place that I'm going to move into in April. Decorating on a budget is the hardest!
