moroccan pink is making a comeback

While we’re quarantined, we planned to move from our cozy attic bedroom to Minne's bedroom, the master bedroom.

It is the largest and lightest bedroom in our house.

When we moved in our house in 2004, Minne & Pippa both chose the larger rooms on the first floor and we liked the cozy attic bedroom.

Minne found his own apartment just before the whole corona crisis started overhere.
Our plan was to slowly try out if we maybe should move to the first floor and sleep some nights in Minne's room to test it.

However we already knew it right away, when the room was almost empty. Let's go for the spacious room and let's use the quarantine period to create a new beautiful master bedroom. We have plenty of time...

We are very attached to the blue & white wooden panels behind our bed. Once they were beachhouse doors. Those vintage doors will stay in the attic, which will be our future guest room.

So time to get started, a creative #stayhome challenge!

We started with a panelled wall behind our bed, this to approach the atmosphere of the headboard in our current attic bedroom.

Furthermore, we will both choose our own bedside table and table lamp. We thought it would be a nice idea, to seperately and secretly choose 'our side of the bed'. So it will be a surprise what will come in front of the panelled wall.

The world map wall painting made by Henk in 2004, will stay and the other furniture in the room we will 'shop from our stock'.

The Moroccan pink on the wall is making a comeback. This color once adorned our kitchen, still love it!

The wooden floor needs to be painted and we are not in a hurry at all. Hence, for the time being we will still sleep on the attic.

PS: the paint was not completely dry when I took the photos and the moroccan pink actually is even prettier now!

  1. Oh, dit wordt geweldig. Het is helemaal niet mijn kleur, maar het past zo bij jullie. En ook de houten latten vind ik erg mooi. Hier hebben we ook een update van de slaapkamer gedaan, nu de kinderen op zichzelf wonen. Er was wat ruimte om kasten te verplaatsen en een ruimere slaapkamer te creëren. Zo fijn, en ook het shoppen in eigen huis is leuk om te doen.

    1. Dankjewel Jeanette, ja het wordt allemaal heel tof. We verheugen ons erop om binnenkort in onze nieuwe kamer te kunnen slapen. De eerste nacht doen we gewoon net of we in een hotel logeren haha...
      Maar er moet nog het e.e.a. worden gedaan. Gelukkig hebben we er nu alle de tijd voor. Liefs, Ingrid
