I’m not really one of those glossy blogs with stunning inspirational photos about home design. But seeing as our bedroom re-fresh involved a lot of blood (stubbed toes), sweat (shifting furniture), and tears (bloody fleur-de-lis), I thought I would share a few pictures of the finished result.  You can read about the fleur-de-lis here.


bedroom makeover


It took me 12 paint samples and a rather disgruntled husband to find the paint colour I wanted, but in the end I choose Grey Skies by Wilko.

  • Bedside Lamps: Ikea
  • Canvas: Printed by Orbit Print
  • Bedding: Next
  • Cushions: Next and Not On The High Street




Our feature wallpaper remained unchanged but I added a picture rail from Ikea.

The prints were from Not On The High Street and the frames from The Range and Wilko

A few accessories for the finishing touches.



  • Tea Light Holders: Next

Overall the bedroom feels really calm and serene, which is lovely as it is my office too.


What do you think?


Next stop the kitchen!

    Aaah such a lovely collection of bits and pieces! I’m so nosey — I love seeing how other people decorate their homes and the things they collect to make a house their own. Thanks ever so much for sharing with #HomeEtc — Caro xx

    Looks fab – love the colour. I love grey, such a stylish colour. The picture rail is great too and may have to nab that idea for my bedroom
