Pastels in the Bedroom

It has been quite rainy in the past week, and although it is June, I have not seen much of summer yet. This is the time when students take their school leaving exams - in my country school ends around mid-June - and I remember that my first days after my exams were always spent with reading a good book (especially that the weather was unpredictable and rainy). One of my favourites were crime stories that my father had a good collection of, mostly by authors active in the 60s and 70s. I remember one particular novel set in France in the early 60s, where the herione drove through France down until the South coast with criminals in her pursuit. I can still see myself, lying on the bed, book in my hand, not caring about the rain outside, totally immersed in the plot, and in my mind the sea shore in South France was also cool, cloudy and deserted.... just like in that photo above.
To make a long story short, as you see, anything can be inspirational, and sometimes inspiration comes from the most unexpected places.

This bedroom is a sanctuary, the perfect place to sleep, relax, and read books. The colour scheme I chose reflects the photo - calming greys and light blues, sandy colours and a bit of rich brown. Dark blue accents make the room look more alive. For a touch of luxury you can also place armchairs in the bedroom if you have space. And now... relax!
Anyway, the book is titled 'The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun' written by Sébastien Japrisot.
