I just wanted to begin by saying a big thank you to the Savvy Home readers who left lovely comments and feedback about my last post The Entrance Hall. Being new to the game of blog writing, it was re-assuring to know that people liked the products and are looking forward to reading more.
So on to the next room, which just happens to be my bedroom!
My bedroom is located at the front of the house (north facing) and gets lots of light which I love during the daytime, but I’m not so happy about on the weekends when I would enjoy a sleep in! So when thinking about ideas for my bedroom, number one on the list for me is the addition of some curtains. I want to keep the room feeling light and airy, so I would choose light coloured curtains but make sure they have a thick backing to block out some of the light.
Because I have wooden floors throughout the house, I really want to create a greater sense of warm and luxury. I think the key element to making this happen in this room is a floor rug. When it comes to the size, I suggest the bigger the better. It should create a generous border around the bed and have enough room for side tables. The furniture pieces in the room are mainly ‘hand-me-downs’. Having a mortgage has meant that I’ve had to work with what I’ve got. The only item I am keen to keep is the Jericho table lamp from Ecochic which you see featured below.
I’ve always shied away from pattern but I’m learning to like this more and more which you’ll see in this month’s room picks. I think this certainly helps to add to the feeling of comfort within in the room. Due to the location of the door, the focal point of the room is certainly the bed. What I envisage is a beautiful queen sized bed with an upholstered bedhead paired with a crisp white quilt cover. At the foot of the bed, I would love a deeply tufted ottoman to throw my jacket at the end of the day or to have somewhere to sit to put my shoes on!
Despite having a wall of built-in robes, I still find I need extra storage space within the room. I would love to make a chest of draws a real feature piece within the room. To make the most of the light within the room, I would like to add a comfy chair where I can sit back, relax and read a good book (or design mag). And finally to add some much needed colour (and a little girliness), a mixture of patterned cushions, a few bright throws and a beautiful print or two.
