So I have decided to have a change to my room over the summer as I have had the same layout/items in my room for quite a while now and I think I am starting to grow out of it (even though I haven’t seen my room since last August). What better place to find inspiration than Pinterest; I am addicted! One of my favourite boards and most active boards on Pinterest is Rooms and Decor, I just love seeing a range of rooms and getting ideas for my future homes to make them look all cosy. My room isn’t the biggest (my wardrobes take up half the space I swear) so I’m having to be clever with the size of items and think about where they can be placed. I’m wanting to do some painting too as the colour scheme for my room is currently a kind of vibrant candy pink colour; one wall coloured pink and the others all white. I want to change this scheme to all white so I can spice it up with coloured decor wherever and change it up whenever. This change won’t happen all at once but I can make a start on it over summer at least.
I also have my own flat for next year so I’ll be using these ideas and Pinterest, of course, to jazz it up a bit and make it my own 🙂 I can’t wait!!
I want a light and airy feeling colour scheme, and then I can add a touch of colour through the decor. Greys, blues, whites…anything along these lines.
I need plenty of space for my laptop and to work on. Sadly, I have a built-in desk which is unable to come out so I will have to just think of ideas for my future home for now. I’d like it a light area with frames, quotes and plants filling the area. As the photos below are quite similar, I’m sure you can imagine the style I’m wanting to go for.
My bedside table and set of drawers are very old and starting to fall apart. To replace these, I would like more stylistic and pretty-looking shelving, with a mixture of exposed shelving and closed cupboards. Because my bed is quite high up, I need a tall-built bedside table/storage unit.
The more layers for winter, the better. I love cushions, I sleep so much better with hundreds of cushions so I would love a mix ‘n’ match of cushions to match with my bedding. I think throws with bedding complete the look and they are always so cosy, however, I always tend to throw them on the floor when I’m sleeping (whoops).
I want to keep the bright and airy feel of the room so I want a bright light with a simple and elegant lampshade. With regards to my bedside lamp, I am not overly fussed, but I have found a few cute looking lamps. I am a collector of fairy lights too so I need some placed around the room.
FRAMES AND PHOTOGRAPHS
The wall which my bed lies against is very bare at the moment. I love the idea of having an unstructured layout of different sized frames placed all over the wall. I couldn’t quite find what I was looking for on Pinterest but these ideas are still interesting.
This definitely needs repainting as all the current paint is fading away. I would like a few decorative pieces standing on the window sill, as well as some picture frames and maybe a patterned vase to keep some flowers in.
Anything extra I like the look of or which wouldn’t fit into any of the above categories. I love little objects which can make a statement in a bedroom.
