BESPOKE BY BONNIE

IN A BLONDE BONSHELL’S BEDROOM

 

Anyone who knows me will tell you I have never been one to follow the crowd, or follow a trend. I love having individual pieces in my home which I can guarantee no one else will have.

I also tend to like things I dream up in my mind – but you can’t actually buy!

Luckily; I have a mother who is a seamstress, so between the two of us we can generally design a pattern and create what I’ve imagined.

Every single item on my bed was designed, sewn and beaded by my mother and I down to the very last pearl. There are 100’s of pearls so by the end I was nearly going crossed eyed and praying they were straight! While it was time consuming and, at times, frustrating to deal with so much material and so many pearls; it was well worth the time and effort.

“Where it all began… Just pieces of material and a sewing machine!”

“I hunted down these amazing tiles for my ensuite and bathrooms. Pictures do not do them justice. As you’ll see, I am a minimalist in my ensuite also”

“I have had this timber toy box since I was a baby. It was a plain timber box with a recess on the front and sides. I nailed every tack (and my fingers!) over the same material which was also incorporated into my pillows”
