My Side of The Bed ... By Clare from Looking Glass

How was your weekend? We finally got to see some sun here in London, which was lovely!

Today I'm featuring a gorgeous blogging friend from Sydney, Australia, Clare who writes the ever so lovely blog Looking Glass.
Not only beautiful (she was photographed for an advertisement for Qantas - click here), a true dreamer and a budding actress who adores the 1920's and 50's, Clare shares with us her side of the bed.

What's on my side of the bed ...

"My bedside tables were a great steal from ebay. I stupidly sold our bedsides along with our old bed when we were getting this new pretty one and had no idea it would be so difficult to find the style of bedside table I wanted with enough drawer space at a decent price in Sydney. Ugh! So for a little while we actually had none and the lamps were on the floor! Thankfully I eventually tracked these babies down on ebay.

The lamps were a gift from my Auntie a couple of years back who had a French Provincial Homeware store at the time.

Books - I always have books on my bedside table as well as on my dresser, the mantlepiece, our bookshelves... everywhere! I'm currently reading Memoirs of a Showgirl: From Brisvegas to Paris by Shay Stafford. The cover photograph was taken by the amazingly talented Carla Coulson. There's also a copy of "The Eve of St. Agnes" by John Keats, printed in 1928. I love Keats and I adore vintage books. The older the better. My Mother always told me I was born in the wrong era!

Beautiful candles are a must for me in the house. The little pink one you can see here is the Mirabelle Ceramic candle by Voluspa. It smells of Freesias - yum! Flowers in the bedroom and around the house are also a must for me. These Dahlias were given to me from this gorgeous old man that comes in to my work. He picks them from his garden every week for me when they're in season. I have them displayed in a vintage, white, milk glass vase that was my Grandmother's.

Our bed is from Domayne. We got to choose the fabric, the colour and even the style of studs around the frame. I love, love, love it! The bedding is all linen. I love the relaxed look of neutral coloured linens.

The vintage mirror in the background was another ebay find. For my Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party last year, I used it as decoration & wrote on it the quote "Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the greatest puzzle." I love the quote & the way it looks so I never scrubbed it off.

Thank you so much Clare for sharing your bedroom with us.
I'm especially loving the vintage mirror with the script you still have written on it from your birthday party, the lovely linen bedding ... and how lucky are you to have a little old man bring you flowers every week ... a real admirer!
If you haven't visited Clare at her blog Looking Glass, please do, its a real treat.

    The flowers are a beautiful touch.
    Off to look at Clare's blog now.
    Hope you have a lovely day.

  5. Very pretty, and I love the quote on the mirror. xxx

  6. Whenever I see bedsides like these, I despair that I seem unable to keep mine as neat, chic and uncluttered - and OH! to always have flowers in the bedroom and not just on birthdays, anniversaries or when guests come to stay (lol!)- what an amazing thought!
    LOVE this series - absolutely fascinating and inspiring - now I really must get rid of that pile of old magazines by my bed!

    And after this article "My Side of The Bed ... By Clare from Looking Glass".

    do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind.
    Could it be simply me or do some of these responses come across like left by brain dead folks?

    to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list

  9. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I've
    either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques
    to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.
