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.

My happy yellow bedroom refresh.

I currently love the colour yellow. It’s such a vibrant and happy shade.

Spring is here, but it doesn’t always feel that way right?

I thought it would be good to bring a little sunshine into my bedroom with a yellow bedroom Spring refresh. The fast and easiest way to do this is to get some new bed linen.

My go to place for the best quality bedding is Christy.  Check out my new Bobbi Bed linen in Sunshine. That yellow colour trim is just wonderful. It’s 100% cotton at 180 thread count. It’s crisp and fresh. I’ve been sleeping like a baby. 

Actually, I quite feel like a princess too, because it feels so soft and luxurious, just perfect for royalty. One can dream right?

The whole duvet set is super affordable at £65 for a King sized duvet cover and a pair of pillow cases. yellow bedroom The finishing touch is one of Christy’s Jaipur throw and cushions in Turmeric.

So what do you think of my yellow bedroom? Have I brought the sunshine in? Here’s hoping for more glorious weather this bank holiday weekend.

Styling a Cali vibe bedroom with Habitat.

My bedroom has had a Summer refresh, inspired by the current blue skies and warm air.

I’ve decided to style it with a Californian vibe.

I recently visited Habitat, and fell in love with their new bedroom collection. Furthermore, I’ve decided to use a few curated pieces from this collection to style my bedroom. Habitat To me, the Cali vibe is a light and bright space with a relaxed feel, filled with green plants and hints of mid century modern.

Here’s my take on Cali vibe with added colour.

I’ve picked Habitat’s Coates bed linen with multi coloured stripes, because its blue stripes matches the colour of my headboard. However, it’s super soft to sleep in too.

To stop the bed looking lost in a large room with white walls and high ceilings, I’ve surrounded the bed with rugs. The rug at the end of the bed is also Coates, and matches the bed linen. These colourful cushions, also from Habitat, can be easily mixed and matched together.

The orange cushion at the back is the Mattoni, next to it is the Coates cushion that matches the bedding.

The embroided cushion in the front row is called Oritz, whilst the green yellow one is called Zoe. In the far side of my bedroom, is my newly styled workspace. The art prints are also from Habitat.  My art prints are the mid century modern component of the Cali vibe.

That large orange print called Scattered Circle is by Lisa James, the colourful droplet print called Merge 1 is by Gharima Darwan, and the Hands print is by Anna Koveces. Potted plants in baskets were added to soften the blocks of colours and to give the room a fresh and relaxed feel. Don’t you think the Coates rug goes well with the art prints too? Here’s another view. I’ve left the walls above the bed unadorned, to stop the room looking too bright and busy. However, if you want to add more colour to your walls, then you could change your bedding to a white one.

I have used Habitat’s white linen bedding to style this second look. I’ve moved a few things round here.

The art prints are now above my bed. I’ve added a green and grey cotton throw at the end of the bed to balance out the colours. Habitat I’ve moved my potted plants to either side of my bed to compliment the green of the bed throw. How do you like these cool new cushions on my bed?

The emerald green Dot cushion pulls all the green elements in the room together.

Don’t you think the Hands and Face cushions are just the cutest? Did you spot the blue fringe on the face cushion? The art print above my bed by Eloise Renouf is called Shard. The Citrus orange, yellow and green really creates a happy sunny feel don’t you think? I’ve added some of the cushions from the first look bedroom here so you can see how they blend together easily. So there you have it, my Cali vibe bedroom.

I’ve had so much fun using the new Habitat bedding and also the new home decor collection.

Habitat has re-launched their bed linen edit with over 60 exclusive designs including Scandi-cool neutrals, statement pattern and colour, as well as luxe 100% linen designs. A visit to their store is a  great way to kickstart an update of your bedroom. Alternatively you can buy online too.

Finally, hope you’ve enjoyed the post, and I wish you a wonderful week ahead.
