quintessential English home look Liberty floral prints are perfect for that quintessential English home look.

I have a hunch this beautiful English country lifestyle look will be making a huge comeback this Summer.

Perhaps the Pandemic has made us long for more rural living.

I decided to bring a bit of that English charm into my home, my bedroom to be precise. As you can see, I have some pretty Liberty fabric bedding on my bed.

They are all handmade in Somerset by the luxury bedding company Coco and Wolf.

I have always loved browsing the fabrics at Liberty London. How to get that quintessential English home look with Coco and Wolf. My Liberty fabric duvet cover is called the Betsy fuchsia. quintessential English home look Liberty London print Here it is up close. The pillow case with a frill edge is the Betsy grey, and the pink and yellow pillow case in front is called the Wiltshire bud. The fabrics are super soft and moreover so luxurious to sleep in. I’ve decorated the bed with some pretty quintessential English silk cushions by another super talented brand, Catherine Rowe designs. In fact, I was interested to learn that Catherine won the Liberty Open Call for a new iconic Liberty fabric design in 2018 which was then launched in 2019. The pink silk cushion you see on my bed is called China rabbits and peonies and the other one is Chinoiserie Menagerie. Both of them have a beautiful ivory bead piping.

Aren’t they so pretty? I absolutely love the design and somehow reminds me of a stately English home in the country side.

The colours are in my favourite pastel palette. They look great on my sofa too.

anyway, hope you’ve enjoyed this post on how to get that quintessential English home look.

Finally, wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

Willow ottoman bed As I write this post, my daughter is travelling back from university for a week’s break. She has not yet seen her bedroom revamp, and the new Ottoman bed.

I can’t wait for her to experience her new Button and Sprung Willow Double Ottoman bed in a Pale Rose Linwood Juno fabric.

My daughter, like I, absolutely love pink, hence it was the chosen palette for the room. ottoman bed with storage I’m sure I’m not the only mother who struggles with minimising clutter.

With my daughter being away at university, this was the perfect opportunity to revamp and refresh. Willow ottoman bed from Button and Sprung When I saw this double Willow bed at Button and Sprung’s showroom, I knew it was the one.

Prior to this, my daughter had a white wrought iron bed.

Since she spends a lot of time in bed watching You Tube, Netflix and even writing her essays on the laptop, that wrought iron headboard couldn’t have been that comfortable for her. under bed storage with the Willow ottoman bed That plush pillow headboard on The Willow bed was one of the winning features influencing my choice. Believe me, it’s super comfortable, just like a sofa. Back to the the decluttering.There were books and note folders in the room forming an unsightly pile, which I proceeded to place into storage boxes. These gorgeous heart prints above the fireplace are by Hannah Carvell. The piece de resistance of this Willow Ottoman bed is its storage space under the mattress.

The bed easily opens up with a tug and lift using the pink strap at end of the bed.

The gas strut mechanisms help propel the bed up and holds it in place. Finally, I could hide those storage boxes away, without having to take up more space. So cool right? That plush pillow headboard is so tempting. Now the bedroom is looking spick and span. I can’t wait to see her reaction when she comes home. I’ve also placed some fresh new linen bedding, with a spritz of Lavender to calm the senses. A huge thank you to Button and Sprung for the wonderful ottoman bed that has made my daughter’s room.

I’ve been wanting to add a more grown up character to my bedroom with wall wood panels and wallpaper for quite some time.

I wanted to be more ‘grown up’ without losing the playful, fun aesthetic that I so love.

Here’s my bedroom last Summer, all bright and light.

I don’t see this as child like, but it’s funny how many people have associated this space as a child’s bedroom.

I’ve decided a change was in order. Ta-dah! What do you think? More grown up right, but without losing my fun and happy vibe I hope?

I have based the styling of this bedroom on the Confettis By Nymphea’s Factory wallpaper from 4MURS. This wallpaper is only exclusive to 4MURS

Pink and gold polka dots on a white background is just so fresh, fun and me. Any excuse to add more pink to my home. wall wood panels Here’s the bedroom in its entirety on one side. I’ve styled the bed with colours to compliment the wallpaper.

I’m so pleased with the wall wood panels too. wall wood panels and wallpaper My general aesthetic has always been a combination of period and contemporary.

As I live in a Victorian house, I wanted a way of introducing some period character into my bedroom, but maintaining a modern style at the same time.

Wall wood panels have been a huge trend this past year, and I have been toying for the idea for quite a while. One advice is, if you are going to go for painted wall wood panels, then you could definitely safe costs by using MDF rather than real wood.

If you want more ideas on wall wood panels, then this article from Real homes is useful. This 4MURS confettis design is just wonderful. It perfectly matches the pink I chose for my bedroom wood wall panels, and my standing Anglepoise lamp. bedroom wall wood panels The next thing I’ll need to change is the switches, perhaps to a gold brass colour. Last but not least, I have a couple of rolls of the 4MURS Confettis By Nymphea’s Factory wallpaper left which I will be doing a giveaway on my instagram. Keep an eye out, it’ll be on the 12th December 2019.

Hope you don’t mind this little break from Christmas posting. I will be back soon with a Christmas post soon on how I have decked the hallways for the festive season.

Have a fabulous week ahead.
