I spoke to my mum about the fact I wanted to make my room my room and she agreed. I think another thing that has always made it difficult is that I have never had a definitive style and my likes and dislikes have changed A LOT! However, this time I think I have finally figured out what I want… and that is where the new difficult part comes in because it is not very specific. What I want is not a set theme or scheme but is lots of little bits put together cohesively to make me one gorgeous and relaxing space just for me!
Basically I want a room like a cloud – I want pale soft colours, lots of materials draped softly, cushions, a cuddle chair, candles and fairy lights. How they all come together in the room I have no idea but those are the things I want. Of course I am letting my mum help and she has gone to town with a Pinterest board (I swear she could Pin in the Olympics!!) and has done basically what was in my mind and each pin is something I love and would go together.
When moving out of our old house, I got rid of practically all of my furniture as it had been with me so long that it really did need chucking and updating. I feel like I now need investment pieces too, ones that will last a long time and won’t need replacing in a year or two or ones that I can mess up when building it from a dreaded flat pack. I think the best bet is for me to choose Oak Furniture and get some really gorgeous pieces that are soft looking and add a sort of enchanted feel to the room if you know what I mean. To be honest it would also be nice to have bedroom furniture that matches rather than random bits I collect over the years.
