Mlle. Frou-Frou's Boudoir!! ~ Frou Frou Fashionista - Luxury Lingerie Blog for Faire Frou Frou in Los Angeles

Monday, June 15

Mlle. Frou-Frou's Boudoir!!

My (Alison's) newly painted white bedroom floors...it took me 3 days to prep, sand and paint it. Love the results, even though I now have to obsessively clean it! I thought photographing the seersucker shoes would be a fun way of showing the floor.

Crystal perfume bottles on my book cabinet. In the background is my new grey/white Cath Kidston wallpaper, which I also installed myself (never thought I could put up wallpaper!).

Pillow shams (and matching chair fabric) from Rubie Green.
Some of my favorite pink bras. I think I have over 90 designer bras in my collection...not bad for owning a lingerie boutique! Bras shown here (top to bottom): Damaris, Mimi Holliday, ID Sarrieri, Fleur T.

A pair of Christian Louboutin heels on my book case. I haven't worn these shoes yet...so in the meantime, they make a cute display piece! Plus, I'm a shoe lover (what woman isn't?).

Satin-tufted headboard and Rubie Green bedding and Martha Stewart bedding (hard to tell).

My Made by Girl LOVE poster above my Wisteria mirrored dresser (that I love). Chair from Calypso Home covered in Rubie Green upholstery. Crystal lamp and silver clock from Restoration Hardware. On the opposite wall, a framed vintage Cadolle advertisement.

A vignette on my desk: a pretty card, an old framed polaroid of my Grandparents, and a framed antique perfume bottle label (thanks to my mom for framing it!).

My desk where all the blogging action happens! Mac computer and peonies are most prominently shown...and above the desk is a Le Frou-Frou framed print that I got as a gift 15 years ago (it must have inspired the name of the store!). Also notice the Ghost Armchair...which is surprisingly comfortable!

My Louis Ghost Armchair (which looks extra ghostly here) on a sheepskin rug next to my favorite mirror table from Grace Home Furnishings. On top of the table are a bottle of Laduree champagne and an Ellen von Unwerth photo book. On the wall, a Rene Gruau framed print.

The base of the etched mercury glass & acrylic lamp on my dresser (which is not fully shown). Lamp from Pom Pom Interiors, but is also sold on the Neiman Marcus website.

A view of one of my bra drawers! In the background is a ceramic stool that I use as a nightstand.

Another framed antique perfume bottle label from France.

A collection of lovely things. 3 glass balls (from ABC Carpet & Home), mercury glass accents and a hobnail vase (that I took from my mom!).

My 'chinoiserie' book cabinet that I painstakingly put together. It only came in black, so I had to sand it, paint it and assemble it over a period of 2 weeks. I then lined the back of the cabinet with leftover wallpaper. I have so many books that I love, so it's a nice way to show some of them.

Even Chickie got in on the makeover action, getting a new fluffy pink bed from Maxwell Dog (that she loves)!

So many customers enter Faire Frou Frou and ask if my room looks like the store, and I suppose that in a way, it does! At least in terms of the pink!
It's unusual to write a post firsthand, but this is about my (Alison, aka Mlle. Frou-Frou's) room. In a couple of weeks we will also show Madame Frou-Frou (my mom, Gail's) room makeover.
In any event, I am pleased to show the end result of several months work on my 'boudoir'. I love doing home projects, so it was actually kind of fun painting, wallpapering and assembling the new furniture...or at least fun in hindsight. I also wanted to show a bit of my lingerie collection, since the running joke is that I own everything in the store. What can I say, I like what we carry!
I tried to give credit on most of the major pieces as well as links on where to buy.
I hope you enjoy this post!!

franki durbin said...

I've never been so proud of one of my blog sisters. AMEN, honey. And I've got a retail background as well...so my drawers and closets suffer from "shop" syndrome as well. I color block items, I arrange them prettily like they are on display etc.

but your boudoir is GORGEOUS. Do enjoy!

Annie Empiric said...

I loved this post! And your room... and now your blog. My eyes are burning from all the pretty - I dont think I blinked until I got to the end. I was telling my husband just this morning that a 31 year old woman such as myself needs to get it together in the bra dept. Its a s if you heard my prayers. I will be in to the shop!

Thanks for popping by my blog today. Info for the store is;

megan said...

aww, so pretty! i am about to paint my bedroom pink, too, so i'm totally eating this up!

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

Thank you again!! Just to answer a few questions:

Ami - my dog is a Pomeranian. she lost much of her fur from a genetic disorder, and we're hoping to save some of it with the medication she's on!

Brenda - that's so cool that you have some of the same things! it's fun to see when someone else shares your taste. ;-)

Mrs. Limestone - i actually had my LOVE poster custom-framed at Aaron Bros. it cost way more than i expected it to!

Alicia - the bookcase is from...well, I'm not sure! i bought it online from perhaps Home Decorators Collection or maybe it was The Company Store. it was about $400, which is good for a piece of furniture like that!

Thank you again to everyone!!
xoxo

Truly beautiful and chic :)

Skinnypurse said...

I adore these photos and the style of your room! I am bookmarking this post for inspiration for when I redecorate. :)

jaunty magpie said...

*gasp* I can't say how much I'm in LOVE with this space. But I'll sure try: love, love, love it! Beautiful work and I love that you had a hand in it, so you can have the satisfaction of feeling close to the space. Our house isn't this fabulous, but the little things we've done on our own have a much greater connection to us than the things we had to hire others to do.

Mixamix said...

Alison, you can definitely be an interior designer. Wonderful job indeed! =)

I wish I can come to your house and your store someday.

Jihan S. said...

How about taking higher quality pictures of your room and submitting them to some of those home decor magazines like Better Homes and Gardens or a Martha Stewart magazine? They would LOVE this! I'm still so crazy about this room. Definitely shoot higher quality pictures of the room in wider angles!

Practical Princess said...

This is every girls dream!!! I am speechless as to how beautiful this room is...

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Oh, Alison! I'm just about finishing my own room makeover project, so I'm happy to have come across this post! Always cool to see what other people do with tehir rooms, especially when they do it with their own hands - just the way I do it with mine! LOVE your little budouir! I'm not that big a fan of pink, but your bedroom is just the right amount of girly - I love how you use other pieces like this amazing ghost chair (I also happen to be a huge chair appreciator) and that "book closet", they add style and a bit of an edge to a girly look. LOVE your room, GREAT job! :)
