Want to turn your run of the mill bedroom into an exotic eco boudoir? Please. That’s like asking if you want Barack Obama to be President. Of course, you do. Well, in the case of former, you’ll need a couple of key items: low lighting, soft music, sexy lingerie, a lover, sweet scents and pillows — lots of pillows.
Luckily designer Catriona McKechnie’s Eco Boudoir range offers boudoir essentials “fashioned out of biodegradable and naturally produced materials, free of chemical interference, including hemp and natural silk, and Italian woven bamboo fiber.” Everything you need under one New York City luxe boutique.
Transforming your bedroom is easy. Cover your bed in cream and brown cushions in soft bamboo jersey with silk print. Strategically place under your pillow or in your lingerie drawer soft Italian bamboo and silk pillows filled with organic lavender and lentils. They come in an assortment of colors, but my pick is the black & pink silk with black bamboo.
Then take style cues from your new decadent surrounding and drape yourself in bamboo, too. From the bamboo hot pants and robe to the silk chemise, everything is made from “organic sustainable materials, using environmentally conscious techniques”.
So, there’s the 411 on upgrading your bedroom into an eco boudoir. Because let’s face it — a bedroom is just for sleeping in. An eco boudoir on the other hand… well, anything’s possible.
