Some Bedroom Plans + A Moodboard

Hello, hello!  Ahhh, it’s so good to be back on here after my July break – we spent almost three weeks camping in France, some of which I tried to share via my Insta feed, however those of you who have had a similar kinda holiday will know how difficult wifi can be to search out!!  Maybe that’s a good thing in disguise?  It is however nice to be home again, back in our little bubble that’s home.

One thing we decided whilst we were away was that we needed to start thinking about our plans for our bedroom.  It’s practically the only room in the house that we haven’t touched, however the bare floorboards (I took it upon myself to pull up the tatty old carpet some months ago – don’t even ask), jumbled together furnishings and partly wallpapered walls simply need to be tackled head-on!  It’s reached the stage of no turning back, folks…

Which brings me to writing this post.  I have a few ideas scrambling around in my brain about the kind of bedroom I want and three keywords keep popping back up: tranquil, light, scandi.  So I figure this is where it’s at!  Every successful interior scheme begins with a simple moodboard, often created and grown from something as simple as a few key words or singular item in a room, and I always find them a fascinating insight into the direction an interior project is headed, so I want to share mine with you, along with some interior inspiration gathered up from Pinterest and, of course, a look at a handful of always-so-covetable shopping items from my ever-expanding wish list (it WILL become a short-list, eventually, I promise!).  Why not follow the planning process with me and hopefully I’ll be paintbrush firmly in hand come September!

Day Bed Dreaming

In preparation for moving into our new home next month, I am on the quest for a new bed for my eldest daughter, H, aged 9.  Unlike our last house, our children can now look forward to each having their own bedroom, which is new for us (and very lucky for them as I keep banging on at them!), however it does mean that we are one bed short at this particular point in time.  My son, aged 7, will take the bunk beds and my youngest daughter, aged 4, is happy to stay in her toddler bed for another six months, thereby putting off that next added expense until then at least… but for now the focus is on H’s sleeping arrangements, which brings me to this post about day beds…

How to create a cosy bedroom sanctuary

With the colder season already creeping in, there is nothing more welcome at the end of a long day trudging to and from school and work than crawling into a well made bed, wrapping yourself up under layer upon layer of snuggly, dreamy softness.  The only thing is, there’s more to achieving that wonderfully luxurious and cosy bedroom than simply throwing an extra blanket over the bed, so here are some tips on how to create your perfect autumn/winter bedroom sanctuary…  (more…)
