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?
