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.

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
Accessories 2


  • Frame: Ikea
  • Heart Ornament: The Range



Accessories 1


  • Candle Holder: The Range
  • Candle: Wilko


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!
