You won’t believe it but when I was younger interior design was actually the career path I wanted to go down. Although I don’t work within interiors I still absolutely love them and I am a daily interior pinner! Often finding myself in H&M home purchasing some new goodies for my bedroom (I am yet to move out so just filling my bedroom with bits for now) It is no where near what I would like it to look like there are things on my list such as a new bed and bedside tables etc.. that I would love to have but with the future prospect of moving I am keeping that on hold for now and enjoying what I have.
Because I work from my home my bedroom doubles as my office, eventually when I have flown the nest I will have a set space / room for this, but for now it works perfectly. I got a basic Ikea corner desk to house my computer, to read more about creating a gorgeous work space I wrote a blog post filled with all my tips and ideas. I just like this space to feel tidy but inspiring and functional. My chair is one of my favourite things I think I have ever bought, again I found it on Ebay it wasn’t a scratch on the usual prices for these chairs and I wanted the specific colour and tulip shape!
I hope you liked this little interior insight. Hopefully one day in the future I will be giving you insights in to more rooms that just my bedroom but for now this is my little space.
The heart of my room is my bed. A super old king-size bed with a £50 pleather cream headboard I bought myself about 5 years ago now! I LOVE my bed and really relish in a good nights sleep so my bedding and the atmosphere of my ‘sleeping area’ is crucial. The brushed cotton, white bedding I purchased from Primark, so snuggly and doesn’t break the bank. My bedside tables are super old basic Ikea, with marble lamp stands I randomly picked up in Tescos * similar one linked. with a lampshade from H&M home, I adore the velvet and colour. I added this Desenio frame and print to my bedside table to add something else as it felt a little bit bare. In terms of what I have it varies as I do actually use it whether its candles, books, lone water bottles and half drunk cups of tea, hand creams or lip balm.
The Little Things
I am a little bit obsessed with picking up little things like trays, dishes, candles and whatever else I spy in H&M home.. my new favourite shop if you haven’t noticed. My gold frames are from Desenio and I actually just found some prints that I loved on Pinterest and printed them off at home. The gold and pale pink perfume tray is a H&M home piece as well as the shell jewellery dish. My incredible gold palm tree candle holder is from Hoxton Home a little gem I came across in Deal one day. The lampshade is from B&Q my dad brought it home one day a good 5 or 6 years ago and I still love it so much. Something I really love in the home is navy velvet, this stool I bought in Home sense for £60 and you should have seen my face walking out holding it *smug.
