Pilgrim Lee‘s bedroom details – girly crafty heaven!

Blue velvet couch!

Ikea really need to launch some creative marketing campaign showing creative people and what they have in their Expedit bookcases.  Man that is a seriously great idea.

I had the great pleasure of finally meeting the lovely Pilgrim Lee last week at the Calendar Launch!  Thanks for coming Pilgrim!  It was a little odd to finally meet, because as usual I felt like I already kind of knew Pilgrim from her online persona and emails we have exchanged!  Most excitingly, Pilgrim was wearing the most brilliantly colorful outfit, complete with pinky / purple eyeshadow… so brave and fun and really she just looked like one of her own illustrations!  (If you don’t know Pilgrim’s work perhaps check out my interview with Pilgrim earlier this year, and of course her own brilliant website!).

It was no surprise to see this week that Pilgrim’s home – like her work and her wardrobe(!) – is a riot of brilliant colour and pattern!  If you read her blog (you should!) you will also know that Pilgrim is also a lover of all things vintage…. so much of the furniture you see in her home are pieces handed down through generations in her family – and of course the odd op-shop find!  Pilgrim also loves Etsy for handcrafted things, and  is such an Etsy expert she posts a brilliant regular segment on her blog called ‘as seen on etsy‘.  I NEVER seem to find  where all the good stuff is hiding on Etsy, so it is always to great when someone else filters it down for you!

I just love so many aspects of this super cheerful and fun little home, which Pilgrim shares with her hubbie and young son.  Favourite elements include that fab yellow woven wicker bedhead, beautiful artworks displayed above, and the very excellent blue velvet couch in the loungeroom!  I am mainly just seriously impressed that Pilgrim has combined so many varied elements in her small home, yet still has produced a really strong and cohesive interior ‘look’!  I am also very impressed with Pilgrim’s man because if I tried to  put ceramic bluebirds on the wall above my bed I think that would sadly be met with much boyish hostility!

To add a *punch* of colour to your home perhaps you should visit Pilgrim’s etsy store and check out her fabulous range of vibrant prints and artwork!?  YES what a great idea.  Also her blog is beautiful, you really must bookmark.

Huge thanks to Pilgrim for sharing her home with us today!

WOWSERS love that acid green / yellow bookshelf!
