Boudoir Chic via House of Design and Style

The first of a handful of very kind and lovely bloggers to step in and share some beautiful guest posts while I’m off to Portland for the marathon is Andrea of  House of Design & Style. Andrea genuinely has a passion for style and exquisite design which you will find on a regular basis on her blog.  Be sure to stop by as her classic, yet clean blog design is easy on the eyes and a treat to see. Thank you Andrea for your time and this luxurious French post.

Hello! This is Andrea from House of Design & Style, and I am delighted to be filling in for Shannon today! Shannon and I share a mutual love for all things French, especially French decor.

I prefer French decor in the bedroom. A "Boudoir Chic" design is my favorite type of style for the bedroom. It is glamorous and feminine and looks beautiful when done in soft nude, beige and cream palettes.

My idea of a perfect "Boudoir Chic" bedroom would look something like this…

A corner with a cozy settee to curl up and read a book and enjoy a glass of wine.

An ornate headboard with crisp white linens and mirrored end tables for a touch of glamour...

A vanity table and mirror next to the window to enjoy a summer breeze and view of the city (in Paris of course!)...

A dressing room with tons of mirrors and lights to get dolled up in beautiful satin gowns laced with pearls...

A crystal beaded chandelier with a soft glow for a romantic ambiance in the evenings...

And a perfectly organized closet with beautiful wood paneling and a matching wooden chair.

Thank you Shannon for asking me to guest post today. I had a lot of fun sharing my perfect "Boudoir Chic" bedroom with you all!
