A cuter bedroom decorating idea?

April 12, 2011

GAH! I can’t decide between this beautiful vintage bedroom and yesterday’s cute-as-pie guest bedroom?? What do you guys think?

Check out this photo gallery of 5 steps to a vintage-style bedroom

My favourite idea has to be the lace wall stencil and jewellery display! Never has buying new jewellery been so justifiable in the interior design style stakes!

The cutest bedroom decorating idea…

April 11, 2011

Ok, it’s a bit of a toss up between this and another gorgeous look actually, the other one I’ll save for tomorrow… (what? I’ve got to keep some mystery!?) Anyway, inspired by my poor excuse for a hotel-style guest bedroom retreat (ahem… think ‘sofa bed’) I’ve been taking notes from Housetohome’s latest spring decorating idea – 5 steps to a pretty guest bedroom.

Follow the link to their 5 easy bedroom decorating ideas… Enjoy!

Feature wallpaper goes cuckoo!

July 13, 2010

Woah! Slow down feature wallpaper, I only asked what your name was!! I love a funky feature wallpaper, and I love the bird trend – especially when it’s incorporated in a summery bedroom design idea, but this is too much for me.

Maybe it’s the combination of the feature wallpaper AND the screen upholstered in exactly the same pattern? Or maybe it’s the fact that a room full of swans isn’t my idea of relaxation? (as much as I love Osborn & Little designs in general) But I just think it’s too much – what do you guys think? Am I being harsh?

Decorating ideas for bedrooms – soft metallics

April 26, 2010

I’ve been getting bags of inspiration from Ideal Home‘s recent feature on ‘blast away the beige with modern neutrals‘ – perfect if you don’t want to add to much colour, but are about as tired of cream as you are of Mondays!

This bedroom design idea is sooooooooo pretty – best ask your hubby for permission first, mind – there’s a lot of girlyness involved! Add softly shimmering shades with with a metallic feature wallpaper, silk cushions and mirrored accessories. Don’t go too crazy with the metallic tones though, highlight just a few areas NOT the whole room – remember sleek, not freak!

Finally keep the furniture simple and not too ornate to avoid the decorating scheme from looking too fussy.

Bedroom design ideas – my top 5!

March 25, 2010

Although I’ve a self-confessed country-style NUT, that doesn’t mean my dream home will look like a glorified gingerbread house (although that would have it’s perks). I seem to take inspiration from a wide range of decorating styles I find along the way, from futuristic modern (quirky metal clock) to gothic punk glamour (fuchsia and black floor lamp in the living room).

Desperately wanting to give my bedroom an update, I’ve been hunting for the latest bedroom design ideas to suit a range of decorating styles this week. Hope you’re as inspired as I am. (Oooh and please send me pictures of any dream-filled schemes you’ve seen)

One for country-style lovers – ok, this would suit my gingerbread house a … treat!

One for pattern lovers – Oodles of sixties-inspired boudoir chic. The Vivienne Westwood wallpaper is fab!

One for modern minimalist lovers – show-stopping lipstick red bedding takes centre stage. The garden clock adds outsized, yet minimal impact (no late for work excuses for you then!)

One to keep him happy – hold up a piece of floral fabric to some men and they’ll run away faster than you can say ‘it’s my new dress you idiot!’ I like this scheme, it’s a happy compromise (as long as those photo frames don’t contain pictures of his ex-girlfriends!)

One for eclectic lovers – plonk modern pieces next to antique-style furniture, and eye-popping colour next to white gloss for a big ol’ bag of eclectic panache!

Shimmering accents

March 26, 2009

Classic, dark wood furniture doesn’t have to be dramatic and dated. Make sure you keep the walls in a fresh pale shade, and pretty up the look with light shimmering metallic linens and accessories for a boudoir look to die for.
