An Island Bedroom: The Vault Files

You are in for a treat today my friends! I asked my friend Gaby from The Vault Files to share her story and her bedroom with you today. Gaby has an amazing sense of fashion and style and your eyes are about to prove it to you! 

*****************
Hi everyone! Gaby from The Vault Files here sharing some snaps of my bedroom with all of you. First let me tell you that I felt immensely honored when Tiffany asked me to share a room from my ordinary abode here in Kone, New Caledonia. New what you ask? New Cal is a French island close to New Zealand and a year ago we moved from Toronto to this very remote place in the pacific for a temporary job assignment (husband's).

Bringing our furniture with us was not a option, so, not even knowing where we were going to live we had to buy everything, yes, from forks and plates to beds and tables! And giving that this island is very remote, the options were little but oh so expensive! So, giving that this was a "temporary" accommodation we kept it on the minimalistic side. Bed and dresser were bought here, bedside table was a hand-me-down, rug was bought here in the hardware "store" and the rest are things I was able to bring in my suitcases (good move I would say, though I didn't think the same when we traveled with 9 suitcases!). So, here it is:

Love my ikat pillow covers

My bedside table

Every single night I moisturize my hands right before going to bed.
A square dish that holds recently used jewels.

On top of my dresser: jewelry, wedding pictures, sunglasses. 
Not pictured: Bowl with headbands, phone and router.

Jewelry on display

The dishes and the colors make me smile everyday

Earrings and rings

My rug at the end of the bed

A pretty bag that I love looking at everyday

  1. Her vibrant colored jewelry tells me she's adapted well to Island life, and luckily for her...it doesn't take up a lot of luggage space - ha!

  2. A truly beautiful space. I love that she uses items that many of us might consider 'clutter' in such beautiful, clever and colorful ways, transforming it into decor. Simply amazing.
