I recently rearranged our room *flexes muscles* as I just felt something was amiss – I wasn’t a huge fan of this room before I had the switch-up, and moving it around has definitely got me loving it a lot more. This room is still a bit of a work in progress, I need to finish off the floor and just generally make it a little more ‘me’. It will come in time, but for now I feel really happy with the light, bright feel to the room.
I won’t go in to heaps of detail as you can pretty much see for yourself; I’m slowly moving away from the white furniture and trying to find more original pieces, but I don’t want to spend every paycheque on items for the flat, so I’m trying to do it slowly. At the moment I like what we have, the big vintage wardrobe (now at the end of our bed) plays down the white chest of drawers, although my next purchase will definitely be nice dark bedside tables as we bought those white ones second hand years ago and I’ve grown bored of them.
This room is quite feminine I think, I feel like we have quite a neutral feel throughout the house, but the pops of colour in here do make it a little more girly. I like having my things on display, as I prefer a ‘lived in’, organised clutter vibe. I didn’t photograph much of Jordan’s stuff to be fair – there is a lot of his things lying around, but I love his taste in everything so it’s a good balance.
I think the next step is to finish the floor (we need beading along the skirting boards), paint the woodwork white and the walls a lovely muted grey/lilac. I just need to find the perfect paint – I expect this will take me some time! I’m going for a white, grey and gold theme in here, I think it needs a lot more work to get it to where I am happy with it, but we’re getting there!
I moved my Bertoia Diamond chair in to the room too and it looks lovely, especially with my ZARA Home Herringbone throw and that IKEA cushion! It’s the perfect place for it – although I can definitely see it become my chair-drobe at some point in the near future…
What do you think of the room?
