Creating a Boudoir

I’ve been in my yearly nesting phase lately.  After finally acquiring an early 1900’s Antique Brass Bed, I decided it was time to re-create my own personal boudoir.  I’ve wanted a brass bed for only 20+ years.  As I was doing my occasional search for the elusive “Old Man”, I came across another piece that found it’s way onto to my “must have” list some years ago, an antique wardrobe trunk (or 2, or 3).  Finding both within a few weeks of each other was sheer moxie!

Two of my favorite movies are Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Casablanca.  I watch them often with a glass of wine and my favorite blankie.  Travel, antiques, a Montecristo with a cordial of Porto, shoes, a good book, dark chocolate, fine dining, and luxurious lingerie are just a few of my indulgences.  I want my boudoir to reflect my personality and appreciation for the timeless charm and resilience of a well made antique as well as my affinity for glamour & fashion.  It should feel calm, inviting and sensual with a touch of elegance, playfulness and mystery.

With my newly acquired “Old Man” named Fred and Wardrobe Trunk that I refer to as “The Chief”, I’d like to invite you to join me as I update my current boudoir.  I won’t be sharing every little detail; a girl has to have a few secrets.

I hope these posts will inspire you to create a private retreat of your own that makes you feel like a queen and to never give up on your “Old Man”...whatever it may be.

And now...please allow me to introduce you to The Chief and my Old Man, the naked bed named Fred.  Don’t worry about Fred, the new memory foam mattress will be done with it’s off-gassing saga this week and I’ll get to spend some quality time with my “Old Man”.  Until’s the sofa for me.
