So, this is basically the start of a few posts I am going to do on my bedroom and bedroom decor. I had my room the same way for a few years, and I fancied a change (not to mention that the paint was beginning to look very tired) So my planning of the re decoration started in the summer.
(Disclaimer : please note that I am not bragging at all in any of these posts. I am very lucky to have my own space that I can decorate how I would like, and I really appreciate all the things I have)
But first here is a look at what my bedroom used to look like... I didn't actually take pictures before we started painting, these are from a while back, when I had different furniture. But it gives an idea of the colours and what not...
|So the main feature wall was this dark peacock colour, the other walls were an off white.|
So that is what my bedroom used to look like (before new furniture)
Now onto the decor planning. So as I mentioned I started planning in the summer, after my A-Levels when I spent way too long staring at those four walls when I was trying to revise! I got bedding in the summer which was in the summer sales. This started my new colour pallet. I am going for a more subtle look, with neutral walls and bedding, and I am going to make new cushion covers in mustard, burgundy and cream.
|So here is the bedding, the Sanderson bedding was in the sale at House of Fraser, and the throw is from Ikea, which I got a few weeks ago. Its dark grey, so should go with the ensemble quite well.|
|And here is the new paint scheme. I have to give my parents a big thank you, and they have done so much of the painting (I did some of the edges, hehe)|
|The paint is from Farrow and Ball, and its called Elephants Breath!! I loved the name, and I love the colour. Its a really nice paint to paint with, it goes on really smoothly. We did need to do 3 coats with the rollar to get the best coverage.|
|This carpet was put down when we moved into the house, almost 17 years ago. We are getting a new carpet laid next week, which is so exciting. Its going to be cream, and has quite an interesting weave.|
So that is what has happened so far. I will give more updates later
