Marie Antoinette Bedroom makeover.

My Grand mother was called Antoinette...one of my favorite name. My favorite movie of all time is Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola HERE. To learn more about Marie Antoinette and her life HERE.




Do you remember my bedroom ? The post about it is HERE. See how much and where things come from.


Here is my Spring/Summer look....Marie Antoinette Style.






Zebra pillows, one of my favorites.




The bedding was bought years ago at JC Penney HERE. They have great, romantique beddings, one is on front page of their bedding department now and would work great.




Having a little Tea Party, just by myself...




The gardens (Jardin) in France are beautiful...Love the picture...


Orchids are great in Paris when you live in an Apartment. They are on of my favorite flowers...




Little tart, They are a French Classic. Got it from Kneaders HERE.


Herbal tea...




Well, the time of Marie Antoinette is past but, i can still get a taste of it....With some tools...



Get an up hairdo....

And still be modern...


I will relax and enjoy my Tea Party...

Yes we have adopted 2xs and are doing it again, to make it 5 kids (oh my goodness). you have a great talent for style. It's fun to follow your blog.

Love all of your bedding...the blues and browns...and the new bedding for your spring look is simply gorgeous...very romantic and yes...so very Marie Antoinette!!! I think that Marie would be very comfortable and at home in your lovely bedroom, my friend!

I have never taken tea in my bedroom but really must do so...your tea is such an inspiration! Love your black and white transferware tea set!!!

My friend, you are such a beautiful woman...love your "up-do" hairstyle! I have really long hair...I should give this style a try! Thank you so much for participating in Sunday Favorites, dear lady...your gorgeous frenchy bedroom has been such a treat!!!

I do believe you have forgotten her beheading...is that next on your agenda?

Le Chateau des fleurs said...

She was a Woman, a wife, a mother. There is more to her than her death.
Most people are famous for the negative. It is very sad.
This is why i love Sofia Coppola's movie. She portraits her as an human. Yes, in France there is bad feelings about the king and nobles at the time. it will not happen again and people had their revolution. But at the end of the day. Rich or not. People are just people.

Ann Minard said...

Well said! I am going to have to re- watch it. I am the Italian version of Antoinette my name is Antonietta.
