Furnishings: Wanna Take a Sneak Peek at our Bedroom?

It’s been a while coming, but finally I feel ready to share the transformation of our bedroom with you!

Sure, there’s still some finishing touches we would like to add – a picture here, a new mirror there – but they’re going to be things we pick up as and when we see them. We’re in no rush and to be honest we bloomin’ love it even if we don’t get those things!

As you may know if you’ve read any of my previous furnishings posts, we moved into a new-build, i.e a great blank canvas of magnolia walls. This was our bedroom when we first moved in…

16 Bedroom


15 Bedroom

Our original plan was to opt for a gold and cream colour scheme. I had the tear sheets from Ideal Home magazine and everything (remember, we moved in before the days of Pinterest!). But when it came to putting paintbrush to wall we scraped that idea and went for an E L James colour palette instead.


 Ta da!

Light grey paint, Soft Steel by Crown; dark grey paint, Slate Grey by Crown; Lampshade, BHS (no longer stocked); curtains, Next.


This is where I lay my sleepy head. 

Bedside tables, Next; Bedside lamps, M&S (no longer stocked); Bed, Bensons For Beds (this is similar); Cuddly toys, various; Bedding, BHS and Orla Kiely (from TK Maxx); cushions, John Lewis


 Being grown-up and boring is over-rated!

My little tray of trinkets. 

Tray, won in a tombola when I was a kid!; Area VIP wristband, Real Madrid; Kirby grips, Superdrug: Heart Quartz, gift; Wou Lou, Chinese Quarter, Birmingham; Heart bangle, from a Christmas cracker! 



Really impressed with this candle. It smells gorgeous, pumps out a good amount of scent and lasts for ages.

 Where I keep my make-up and toiletries, our washing hamper and a mirror I’d like to change.

 The top shelf of my shelving unit.

 There’s not much you can change with these babies. You can just see hubby’s Ikea storage unit from behind the wardrobes. Find out how I sort my wardrobe here


On the windowsill along with some photos and other trinkets. 

Glass perfume bottles, gift. 

So there you have it, that’s our bedroom. We’re really pleased with it. It feels relaxing and has a kind of hotel vibe about it.

If you know any places we should be looking for mirrors or wall art, please let me know!
