It is here! Another room reveal. This time I am showing my white boho bedroom that is rocking a beachy vibe.
I am so excited!
Come on in…..
There she is. Now that the room is finished I don’t know why I took me so long. Guess the devil is in the details. After laying the laminate and painting the walls and woodwork it should have been easy sailing to the finish line all the way. But it never really is, is it. There was painting the bed. It is a second-hand Ikea Hemnes bed that used to be almost black. It took several coats of white paint to give it its new look. There was hanging the Ikea Tupplur shades that needed to be cut to size, a little job I kept putting of forever because I hate it with a vengeance. Then there was the little lamp I made from a lantern cover and that needed to be hanged from my too high for me attic ceiling. Giving all the white furniture from the old house a fresh coat of paint was the last and easiest job. And then the fun begun. Styling it. I had strong visions for this this room when I started it and it turned out exactly as I planned.
I have been collecting straw beach hats exactly for this purpose. I found them all in the thrift store or online for no more than a few bucks each. I think they are the perfect focal point for this room and add just the right beachy vibe to this very white boho bedroom. You might recognize the crochet pillows, I couldn’t resist using them for the foto shoot, all though they are destined to find another home so I have packed them away safely since.
On the wall opposite the bed I hung the little plate shelf that used to be outside on my terrace at the old house. The room is only just big enough for the double bed so I did not have room for extra pieces of furniture. I guess in a guest bedroom they are not really needed anyway. But this shelf provides just the right amount of space to add some decorations while giving my guest a place to hang some stuff.
The old suitcase nightstand makes another appearance. It works well here I think. It is quite nice to see those two reunited. The suitcase and the little table from my parents home have been apart for over ten years now. I think they are happy to be together again. (In case you are wondering I wrote a full learn how to paint suitcases guide here).
This room is ready for its first guests. It is such a relief and wonderful feeling to know that I am actually making progress on this home of mine. It is giving me wings to continue and cross more projects off of that ever-growing list. I think I pulled off the Cozy Beach Cottage Style that I love, one more time. Although there is a definite boho style going on as well (click here for 50+ DIY Ideas for Bohemian Style Decor)
So what do you think of my white boho bedroom with a beachy vibe?
