Bedroom tour

Tuesday, 29 October 2013
 Over the past couple of months I've been redecorating my room and thought I'd share a couple of pictures. Everything is basically white/cream and only my decor has any colour (but I like it that way). My duvet and pillow is from Cath Kidston and my blanket from Matalan*.




 The main difference is getting rid of my dresser that has featured quite a lot on my blog over the years. I got a new mirror, desk and shelf from Ikea. Finally I can do my makeup without having the sit on the floor by my radiator, with all my products randomly dumped around me! haha. This lovely little stool* was sent to me by Out There Interiors  from their French Bedroom series. The whole website has gorgeous pieces, the kind that you won't find in Ikea.
I keep my skincare and contact lenses stuff by my floor length mirror on a pile of magazines. I should probably throw them out but I can't bare to chuck away stuff I spent money on. I bought magazines much more when I was younger because I didn't have as easy access to blogs like I do now. I didn't have much money so normally would tag along to Sainsburys with my mum and slyly sneak a Vogue under a pile of food in the trolley. The glossy pages of Elle etc were definitely like a whole new world so to speak (cringe) as the extent of my fashion knowledge was the teen section at Tammys in BHS. I like to think some of the magazines I have in that pile helped create my blog and kind of start my love for good style. 
This pin board is badly painted white and collaged with a bunch of pictures I printed off. Its like having a piece of tumblr on my wall. You know whats a pain in the ass though? When these pins fall out and I step on them in the middle of the night in the pitch black. Yep. SUCKS. Next on my wishlist is another one of these boards and a massive map which I can shove on it so I can pin point places I've been/want to travel to. 

I love the little different bowls and candles I have on my dresser. I have a couple of Diptyque bits and a &OtherStories fig hand lotion that smells divine. A couple of my makeup bits are stored here along with my brushes and lipsticks. The lipstick storage is from eBay and was super cheap, I'm talking £3 cheap! Link is here

A couple of my favourite bags hang on my Zara Home doorknobs.
I also keep a handful of my books and photo frames on this Ikea book case. I think I want to do what everyone who has a blog has done and print my instagram pictures and stick them up on the walls. Why is this ridiculously overpriced on so many websites though? Not impressed.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed a look at my haven :)

  10. Your bedroom is just so dreamy! I so badly want to buy the Malm dressing table and have a nice mirror above it, but I'm waiting until I move out of home to invest in a bedroom makeover. This post has definitely given me a lot of inspiration though, so thank you! I currently have a wooden Tumblr-esque pinboard, which I was thinking of painting white myself and after seeing yours, I definitely want to go ahead with that soon. Diptyque candles are so expensive, but how gorgeous do they look on the dressing table as brush holders? So beautiful! You've done a great job. :)

  26. What a peaceful and inspiring place. I have always been a hopeless romantic when it comes to flower motifs in interiors and antique looking furniture. And of course, the orchid and the fresh orchid makes for an incredible touch.

    Hope it is cozy! birdsinberlin.blogspot.ca

  29. Your room is gorgeous - modern and victorian! Most of my furniture is brown, which seems so dull compared to white.
