In my opinion, bedrooms should be cosy and comfy. It’s all very well having a beautiful, stylish bedroom but if it doesn’t immediately make me want to spend a Sunday snuggled up reading a book with a cup of tea all day then I’m not interested. For me, style in the bedroom is optional (which is very clearly evident in the mismash mix of furniture and general blah-ness of our current bedroom). Bedrooms are private. It’s very rare that anyone, other than the people that sleep in that room, will go in (until you come to selling and then you realise how painfully embarrassing your bedroom is!)
Saying that, being an avid blog reader, I can think of several bloggers bedrooms that fill me with envy! Becky from Milk Bubble Tea has a beautiful, white & girly bedroom, Elsie from A Beautiful Mess has just redecorated her bedroom but I love her bright and bold style (old room here), Julia has got a very grown-up and glamorous bedroom and Lyzi has got an adorable vintage-style bedroom with lots of art and quirky charm.
Obviously the biggest feature in any bedroom is the bed itself and I think it really sets the tone for the rest of the room. A giant wooden sleighbed would look completely out of place in a pink and girly bedroom in the same way that an ornate white iron bedstead would look totally wrong in a rustic wooden cabin bedroom. When Carpetright contacted me to talk about their beds I was a bit surprised as I didn’t even realise they sold beds! They’ve actually got a really nice range of bed frames and a bunch of helpful bed-buying guides.
They also wanted me to let you guys know about their House Proud Survey which you can take to be entered into a draw to win £250 worth of Virgin Experience Days vouchers.
