Bedroom Reveal

Bedroom Reveal - French For Pineapple Blog


Some of you may remember that on a bit of a whim, I decided to paint my bedroom a deep, dark off-black colour a few months back, including the built-in wardrobe doors which had previously been sprayed an off-white. Eek!

Then I stalled because I didn't like the bedframe, and I didn't really have a clear idea of where I was going with the room. But an easy DIY to hide the frame got me back on track, and with my enthusiasm reinstated I pushed forward, and have finally got the room looking cohesive and finished.

The addition of the fab, bargain-of-the-year La Redoute rug (I got it for £120 when it was on sale), has really bought the whole room together. Hooray! It isn't the authentic Beni Ourain rug that dreams are made of, but it certainly does the trick and has added a much needed cosiness that was lacking before.

I'm pretty happy with the way it's turned out. It's pared back, calm and grown up, and I've found myself sneaking up there to relax and read a magazine which I never did before. I still have a few plans for the room which I'll share when they happen, but it's so nice to have another room looking finished.

  1. A beautiful dark and sultry and dare I say, sexy bedroom! I like how minimal and uncluttered it is but with key pieces which really give it a great look. Did you spray or roller paint the cupboards, they look so sleek? Also, would like to purchase the foo dogs on your site, but can only do the transaction tonight when I get home.

    1. Thanks Sharon! I did the cupboards with a small roller. I nearly gave myself a nervous breakdown, but after three coats (or was it four), they looked great. X

  2. Love it! I love the 'pops of colour' although that expression is so overused now, ha ha. I love the lampshade, it is so unexpected and for me 'makes' the room. Also the fox - are you keeping him then?! I love him!

    1. Thanks Jessica! Ahhhh the fox. Mr Foxy. Well I bought him to sell, but then fell head over heels in love and don't know if I can part with him. So the jury's still out on that one. Ha!

  4. Hi Bianca,

    I came across this blog post from Old Fashioned Susie (September 2016) and I'm so glad I did! I love how you took the plunge to go so dark (i'm on the fence still, so I appreciate the chance to see other people doing it!).

    I particularly love your art! Where do you buy your art from, please? I'm keeping my eyes peeled in second hand shops, markets & antiques centres at the moment, but it's figure drawings - preferably charcoal - that I'd really like to find.

    1. Hi Flora! Thanks so much! Oh art is SO tricky, especially when you have to consider other people's tastes too. I think you're on the right track, but also try Ebay and Etsy - you might be surprised. In the past we've bought art from auctions, galleries (not always as expensive as you might think, so don't discount them), ebay, and direct from artists too. Have you ever been to any of the art fairs? Xx
