Rebecca's bedroom... suggestions please!

Friday, March 4, 2011

Rebecca, a loyal reader of TWAB (and fellow Melbournian!) emailed me earlier this week kindly asking for some help! Rebecca was hoping I might be able to suggest some curtain or fabric stockists as she is wanting to replace the heavy and slightly dated drapes currently hanging in her enormous and gorgeously organised bedroom! Having not lived in Australia for over three years now, I too had no idea where to start! So I am turning to you, my readers and fellow bloggers for some help with:

1) Suggestions for either Melbourne based OR online stockists of curtains or fabric for curtains.

2) And while we are at it, some suggestions for what type of curtain you think would best suit her french provincial styled room would be great too!

Here are some photos so you can get a sense of the space...

Look at that stunning archway!

Loving her office nook!

Here you can see the drapes Rebecca wants to ditch!

French Provincial style furniture.

From another view...

And again.

So now that you have seen the room in question, can you suggest any stockists as well as what style curtains you think Rebecca should choose to replace these old ones and bring this window back to life?! Sheer, patterned, coloured, neutral? We would really LOVE your input!!! :)

Can you believe it's Friday again?! Mr B has been o/s for the last three days so I am looking forward to him arriving home in the next few hours so we can start our weekend :) I hope you have a great one too! x


  1. Hi S, I suggest that she goes to Theodore Made - Katie has beautiful fabrics, fabric ideas for curtains.. cushions, lamps, bedding - the works essentially and she is in Melbourne. She gives great styling advice too.

  2. I've recently discovered Spoonflower which is an online independent fabric store - whereby you can order fabric designed by anyone and in any type of material, from heavy weight to light cotton voile.

    other wise GJ's is an awesome fabric store in Melbourne

  3. I'm living in France so I can't give any advice about the "where to buy" but I would definitely go for a "toile de jouy" fabric.
    Probably the classical one (red pattern on white/cream background), it would fit the "provincial french" style as you name it :-)
    It would bring much more light and could help to brighten up this side of the room.
    Here are some examples of what i'm thinking about :

    Don't forget to show us the final result !!!

  4. love the tour just gorgeous ...Katie from Theodoremade she is the girl for any decor inspiration ..her style is gorgeous and her shop is divine:).. xx

  5. What a beautiful space! I like the idea of incorporating the green that is painted on the trim with the red she has in her bedding and decor. Like the one,

    I would take the drapery panels all the way up to the ceiling. The room has super tall gorgeous ceilings, it seems as though all the furniture/built-ins are at the same level across the room. I also noticed that the furniture is placed against the walls. Why not bring some seating with a coordinating fabric in front of that beautiful fireplace. There are some beautiful pieces in these rooms that could be moved around a bit to really utilize the beautiful room. {maybe too much input?}

  6. Thanks SO much for taking the time to send through your suggestions lovely ladies... both Rebecca and I appreciate it very much! I have forward your links and suggestions to Rebecca and hopefully she will share the end result with all of us! :) x
