Boudoir Basics: Spring Cleaning ~ Part 2


When Alison Rubke, co-owner of Faire Frou Frou in Studio City, California, does "spring cleaning," she does it with style. Faire Frou Frou is the incredibly darling, French-inspired lingerie boutique on Ventura Blvd. Recently, I was talking with Alison, and I was excited to discover that she was redecorating her boudoir.

How does a lingerie boutique owner spring clean and redecorate?

She takes her creativity, carves out three days (mainly for repainting her floors and furniture white), and sets her mind on transforming her bedroom into a lovely sanctuary for all things beautiful and pink. Alison did all of the work herself for this incredible result. Images on this post show her gorgeous, new bedroom.

(Image Above: Unused silver and glass from your Mother's or Grandmother's cabinets are great, feminine decorations that are also functional. Alison used a silver cup as a flower vase.)

(Image Above: Bras arranged in uniform manner make it easy to choose a bra in the morning)

I already was in love with Faire Frou Frou and wanted to move in. I'm certain if Alison gets tired of the lingerie business, she has "interior designer" as another career option. She's used the same classic taste and French style in both her boutique and boudoir.

And here is an homage to Chickie (image above). Chickie works hard as store security and is finally taking a break, "Celebrating Her Inner Eve" too. After all, what is redecorating if you don't have a special place for those near and dear to you?

After all this hard work, I know one place Alison is going to love getting some rest...

Here is to Alison for "Celebrating Her Inner Eve" and taking the initiative to do all this work herself! It goes to show that a little bit of time, sweat equity and a lot of creativity can create a glamorous look, making you never want to leave your bedroom.
