We’ve been planning to give our bedroom a makeover since we completed our big extension in 2014.
We made a start during the end of last year, but Christmas got in the way so it’s been a bit of a slow project, which we are hoping to get finished in the next few weeks.
Before I do the big reveal, I thought I’d share the look I’m hoping to achieve and some of the things that have inspired me. I’ve included a few images from Pinterest that I love. Check out my Pinterest board for more of these.
A calming colour palette
I love calming neutral colours, especially in our bedroom. I also really love all the grey tones that are around at the minute. In fact quite a few of the rooms in our house include some grey.
A luxurious but cosy feel
I want our bedroom to have a grown up look to it, which is quite luxurious but also cosy too. I’m thinking: a soft, plush carpet, which feels lovely and soft when you step out of bed in the morning; a fabric headboard, which will be the main feature of the room; lots of cushions to make it super cosy; big bedside lamps like you get in hotels; lovely bedding that you want to sink into; and to add that extra luxurious touch, a hint of crystal (lights, curtain pole etc.) and lots of luxurious finishing touches.
