The Room

Apologies for being a horrible blogger- I came down with the flu, so there wasn't much to blog about this past weekend. Anyway, a lot of people have asked about my room and I finally got around to snapping a few photos of it...
My favorite perfumes- Balenciaga, Serge Lutens Daim Blond, and Byredo Rose Noir.
 Some sparkly and gold jewelry..
Some of my closet... I know, it's so messy!
Hope you enjoyed the post!

your room is absolutely stunning karla! it inspires me to play with color more in my own space; especially love the blue and the copper.


it was so nice to meet you on wednesday, especially since i've followed your blog from your very beginnings - so surreal, so cool!

I love that its not too perfectly organised as people tend to make it before photos...not very realistic! But love the simplicity yet details of the books, splattered paints and introduction of colours with slightly rustic furniture too.

I hope you're feeling better! I recently had the flu, too, for the first time since I was a little kid. I had forgotten how awful it can be!

Have a happy week!

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

I ABSOLUTELY adore an eclectic style: Mixing up pieces from a flea market, foreign trips and interior designer. Above all that I also love the fact that your room doesn’t have a very clean and minimalistic look. you like to mix up some extraordinary colors: the blue, curry, gold and red are fantastic together. A feature wall always does the trick. You have kept the rest of the walls pretty simple, so all the attention goes to the headboard. Hope you are feeling better.
