Peep around Our New Bedroom Design

March 13, 2014


We have at last completed the bedroom and upstairs hallway (well except for the floors, but that’s the case with most of the flat!). So I thought I’d share how it turned out, I’m really pleased with it, it’s a room that makes me smile and I’m glad we’ve been able to bring some personality to a small space without overwhelming it.
There was naturally a very cottage-y feel to this room with its small dimensions, uncentralised window and sloping ceiling which threw me in my initial thought process. It seemed to be insisiting that it required a rustic cottage look and I wasn’t sure if I should go with this and celebrate it, but having moved from town to country and back again I didn’t feel entirely comfortable paying homage to a rustic country look in the heart of urban Tooting.

The range consists of everything from duvets, stools and rugs to storage boxes, bowls, trays and cups taking in cushions and chests of drawers along the way. It’s mixture of plywood, pastels and geometric shapes make it the most complete range by Ikea that I have ever coveted. Only available in store at present, we have already bought bowls and storage boxes but I have my eyes on a particularly cute pouf if I ever happen upon it in store…Read More

September 23, 2013

Cornocopia of Blankets
Downton Abbey returned last night, which I like to see as official unveiling of the Autumn Season! It was also the real official first day of Autumn, so thoughts have inevitably turned to wardrobes, wooly sweaters and cosy nights in. And nothing says Autumn/Winter more to me than blankets, so as the nights start to draw in and morning dew begins to feel chilly I have been airing out blankets that have been unloved all Summer.Read More
