Now I know very well that my room is no pinterest worthy bedroom but over the last two years, I have slowly been decorating and personalising it to suit my own tastes and personality. This post will be a room tour so you can get a glimpse into my styling and you can get any inspiration. In case you cannot tell, blue is my favourite colour so I knew I wanted a blue room. My previous room was brown, dark and downright disgusting. This new room is blue, bright and bloody beautiful ( if I do say so myself 😉 ). For my room, I chose to pair the blue with white furniture as I felt it really brightens the room. My room is not the biggest so I need all the help I need to make it look airy and light. As soon as the paint job was completed, I had to search for a double bed and furniture to go in my room. I first brought my chest of drawers which was where my dressing table was. I had this for a year as I was still living in my university residence so did not require a dressing table immediately; they are not cheap and  I knew I would have to wait. As soon as I arrived home from university, a dressing table was sorted out for me. This was a huge help as I now store all my make-up and hair stuff in the drawers (with overspill in boxes in my wardrobe). As for the decor, there is no real theme. My big thing is candles; I love candles. So you can see that they are everywhere. The other thing I love about my room is the amount of photographs I have. I love displaying my memories around my room as whenever I look at them they make me smile – I especially love my polaroids from university. My bookshelf is still growing. I did not keep my university books as I sold them on to make some money for the next year at university; in my final year, I never even purchased the course books – I just borrowed them from the library. Now I am beginning to collect and read books for pleasure which feels so nice. Anyway, I do not know why  I have blabbed on for so long about a bedroom. I guess I am just proud of it as it my own space and it is reflective of me.

What style have you guys gone for in your bedrooms?  Do you often find yourself with pinterest envy at all the homeware inspo on there?

    Love your bedding! So cute!! What university do you go to? I have to share a room and so I can’t have the room how I want it we have to agree on what we like! My walls are just plain White and makes the room look so bright and big and clean! I daren’t put any posters up because I like big white spaces!

      I just recently graduated from Cardiff University. My rooms throughout university were always my own and gradually got bigger so I enjoyed it. I would do the same with white walls – minimal is best in my opinion 🙂 x

    Your room looks lovely! I love the polaroids on the shelves. I’m hoping that my new uni room has shelves I can do that too because we aren’t allowed to tack anything to the walls. Not gonna lie , I want all of your candles!

    Love how homey and feminine (but not too girly) your room looks. That teal color is so pretty.
