A corner of my bedroom over at Bodie and Fou*


Perhaps you saw my bedroom appear over at the great Bodie&Fou blog yesterday… Karine invited me to be part of her 'A corner of my bedroom' series … and I enjoyed looking at my own bedroom like this!


a short story I had written about our bedroom: "The Master bedroom! That is where my husband and I are currently sleeping…a little over a year ago we moved to a real house after living in apartments all our lives and while searching for this house we saw many 'huge' master-bedrooms, apparently very important here in Asia. For us it feels like having a second living-room and I must say we spend quite some time here…

Sunday mornings, evenings and when the family wants to watch a movie…the only real TV in our house is in our bedroom. I have tried to make it cozy by adding some nostalgia and sentimental accessories…like a patchwork blanket that I made myself from fabrics that my mom gave to me, my photo-album from when I was a baby, some vintage vases and the old telephone from the Netherlands. A picture of me and my sister is hanging above my bedside table and only recently I added the textile fabric wall decal (yes also made them myself). I love my new necklaces from Kristina Klarin and the yellow hanger is there to give some color to the wall. I wish was allowed to paint the floor black or white…."

Thank You Karine for the lovely invitation!

    Voel me vereerd met zo’n prominente plaats in jullie slaapkamer! Wat lijken we toch veel op Wouter en Tom, zo samen, grappig he? Mooie bedsprei, kan je er voor mij ook eentje maken 🙂 Ellen x

    I absolutely love your quilt! I have never made one before but am plotting one in my head. Could you post a picture showing the whole quilt?
