Modern bedroom ideas

What's on our wall

You probably don't remember this photo of our bedroom back in 2010. 
I decorated the naked walls with some artworks and small shadow boxes.
 Some of the illustrations are my work and some are the work of my favorite artists.

On our wall (Right)

Two of my watercolor paintings + A papercut by me + An exotic shell that I've framed in Ikea's shadowbox + A little terracotta incense burner

On our wall (left)

My watercolor birdie + "Love" illustration by talented Helen Dardik + "Kidney for ginger hair" by wonderful Natasha Mileshina of Bubbo + A shadowbox featuring my papercuts and an art brooch by "Juliepollen".


Wire Blooms: Decorative cable clips (I bought them from Ebay)
Whale papercut wall art: Made by me from paper, confetti and blue transparent paper

Ikea Shadow box

I bought this pretty birdie brooch from Joliepollen shop on Etsy back in 2009. 
It's so well-made and delicate that I didn't felt like using it as a brooch,
 instead I framed it. Those botanical papercuts are my design 
and I think the whole thing came together nicely :o)

On top of the drawer

This is the work of one of my all time favorite artists "Mónica Calvo".


We bought these shells from a wonderful shop in 5th Avenue (Playa del Carmen, Mexico).
The shop was full of amazing shells, big and small from all over the world.

My pebbles

Here are my pebbles, all in one place! That felt pink poppy is a brooch, handmade in Russia by
very talented and sweet Elena of "Roltinica".
