Inspired by Bodie and Fou

I want to congratulate Karine at Bodie and Fou, her home appeared in Grand Designs magazine and the spread is absolutely gorgeous. I love the charm and simplicity of her French flat. You can view the article here. I hope to meet Karine and her sister Elodie in Amsterdam in September for a blogger meet-up I've planned on September 5th. Non-bloggers are also invited, more to follow here on decor8 in August but for now - mark those calendars and come to Amsterdam!

Black walls are a growing trend at the moment and I think this one behind the bed is gorgeous. You may not want to awake to a black wall, so placing it behind your bed is the perfect solution to that while still giving your bedroom a gorgeous focal point upon entering.

Congratulations, Karine!
