A Dressing Room Makeover.

I thought I would post some more photos of the Maison de Livres. The idea of this room is that it was a dressing room off the washroom but it is now a study. I have been in many old buildings, mostly Victorian, and I love seeing how they have been modified over the years. I love trying to spot the changes that have been made. My own little house had this strange little cupboard out on the back verandah. Also found some yellow tiles in the garden below. Some thinking soon made me realise that they were footprints left from the evolution of my loo. I am very glad it is in the house now.

I have had lots of compliments on the wallpaper in this room. It is 'Emma' from Itty Bitty.



 The wonderfully detailed albums on the floor and the parchment letters on the desk are from Montserrat aka Monbio on Etsy. Her sealing wax stick and seal are my favourites.

 I found a great movie poster and in French no less of 'Sabrina'. A firm favourite. Movie and the poster!! The pitcher I got from Susie at Minieden Tienda on Etsy. She also made the mirror for me as well.


 The box of Paris memories on the floor are from Terulka on Etsy.


The Lavender is made by Marianne Cook who is also on Etsy. I adore her Lavender and have bought so many. I am now quite addicted to her Daffodils and have made a very good start on collecting those. Think I will have to do a conservatory.

Be safe, Carriexx.

  1. Hey
    I just love you style! The compliments are well deserved on the wallpaper but I think it's more to do with how you have added all the details and really pulled the room together. Well done! I really find this room intriguing and inspiring at the same time.
    Have a great weekend

  12. I am not that of a wallpaper fan but this is really beautiful. The floral prints are just stunning and surely every woman would fall in love with it. It is just a little hard to find such amazing prints nowadays. Many will appreciate this especially those who are thinking of having closets Bergen built for their living spaces as well.
    Anyway, thank you for sharing this post.
