When my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday back in July I knew exactly what I needed. I desperately wanted our bedroom decorating, some new bedroom interiors and a little tlc. We have lived in our home for six years now and we have decorated the lounge, kitchen, children’s rooms etc. Our bedroom is the only room in the house that has never had any attention. It is pretty much the dumping ground for the washing. Every time I walk into it my heart sinks a little.
The children pretty much take over the whole of the house, they dominate every single room. All I ask is for my bedroom to belong to me and my husband. A little haven where we can relax each night and chat about our day. A place I can wake up each morning and feel refreshed. No washing, no clutter and no mess.
Well I didn’t get it for my birthday but my husband has promised me we will get it done ready for the Autumn where we can have cosy nights reading books with candles on (this is my dream right now ha!). I can’t wait and, whilst I have to be realistic about what we do, a few simple changes will make all the difference.
Bedroom Ideas for my dream room.
Ideally I want a feature wall. I would like navy blue or a dark grey, something striking behind our bed to set the room off. Generally I tend to go for light colours, whites, creams and soft tones but I have always wanted to go a little bolder in our bedroom.
I want some beautiful bedside lamps, the lamps we have currently are so old and worn. I need something modern and a little different to your standard bedside lamp.
We have been living in our home for quite some time however we still haven’t gotten around to buying blinds for our bedroom windows! Instead of sneaking into the bathroom every morning to get dressed I would love some roller blinds to allow me a little privacy and also to help me get a better sleep by keeping the light out. We currently have a grey one in our study which, being a sheer blind, is quite thin so the room isn’t completely dark yet not too bright when the sun is shining in. Something similar is just what we need.
I would also love some fun prints to inject a splash of colour into our room. I will place the prints above the bed so my eyes are drawn to them as soon as I enter my room, making me smile. These two prints from Lionshome UK are beautiful.
I always moan to my husband about having some plants in our home. I am pretty rubbish looking after real plants so I have been looking at some artificial plants . These succulents will look really cool on my windowsill.
Browsing for bedroom Interiors on Lionshome has definitely got me feeling inspired. I am feeling motivated to get started on making my bedroom a little special. Giving me a nice chilled environment to unwind and switch off, without a toy in sight!
