More Bedroom Details.

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?

    I think it’s looking lovely. I have a tip for a paint to try to get that muted grey, slightly lilac look- blackened by Farrow & Ball. We just did our living room in it and it fits the grey slightly lilac bill beautifully!

  • I love your taste in interior dΓ©cor!! Your room looks lovely!!

    Mouse is such a poser! Adorable. You have an awesome home decor- your lounge is

  • I’m so glad you’ve decided to move past the whole ‘white furniture thing.’ Colour and natural woods are so much more refined.

  • Allie Cleve

    I love that chair so much, every time I see it I just want it more! Your decorating style is so great, it’s so clean and simple but it still looks like someone actually lives there πŸ™‚ Looking forward to more decorating posts!

    I like how the chair gives the room a modern touch next to that beautiful old wardrobe. I love the Bertoia Diamond chairs so much, I just wish I could afford one! I’d still have to find a place to put it though..

    Elephants breath by Farrow and Ball is the most amazing lilac/grey colour if that’s what you are looking for. I actually had Johnston’s Matt paint mixed to Farrow and Ball colours as it gave a better coverage and was significantly cheaper.

  • Your bedroom looks so gorgeous, and I love the photos!

  • Rearranging a room is a great way to make it feel new again without spending a penny! I like your taste in furniture, the plants are a nice touch too πŸ™‚ I must remember to get some greenery for our flat too.

  • Imogen Smith

    Kate your style and taste is just so gorgeous. If you ever wrote a book about interior design I would be the first one to buy it! I have to say that the hanging light with the ceiling detail is my favourite! I wonder if you added that or if it is an original detail?

  • I love the mixture of white and more natural/wood pieces throughout. I used to always have white furniture, and while I’m still attracted to it, I try to steer away because it reminds me of my teenage room and makes me feel less of an adult somehow.
