As you know, due to Adam and I getting engaged in July, we are starting to look at houses as inspiration for when we move in together after our wedding. We aren’t getting married for a few years yet, but that never stops me dreaming and looking at inspiration for rooms to do up exactly how we (I mean I really, ha ha!) want them. The first place I have always looked to for inspiration is the bedroom. As I live with my mum currently, I only have a small bedroom which is a complete mess as it acts as my closet, my sleeping area, and sometimes my work station, so there’s not much available space to do anything with it unfortunately, which is why I can’t wait until Adam and I can afford a place of our own to call home.
One thing I have always wanted is a separate room for a closet. As I’m sure you know, being a fashion blogger means I’m addicted to clothes and accessories, and I have LOTS of them, so a room dedicated to that is ideal for me and that’s what the spare bedroom will be in our own house, a dedicated closet! I know you Americans are extremely lucky in the sense that your houses generally come with walk in closets, but us Brits are never that lucky since our houses are much smaller, so we have to make our own plans. I did some closet inspiration before, but it would be clean and white with wooden floors and a fluffy rug, in short. I wouldn’t want my closet to be in my bedroom anymore as it’s too much for me.
So getting to my bedroom (I mean our bedroom), what inspires me? I’m very attracted to the white, fresh, and clean look that hotels often have, but I love the colour schemes of neutrals too. So I think I’d enjoy whites with monochrome greys thrown in or perhaps wooden shades instead. Plants are a huge part of my life as I adore nature, so there needs to be some green in the room as well in the form of numerous different plants which will bring it to life, and that will make the basis of the bedroom. A fluffy rug is a must have and so are some pretty, decorative pillows to go on the luxury bed linen (that’s a must as I’m such a light sleeper), and a couple of ornaments. I don’t want too many trinkets and things, so I would probably just stick to the plant pots, lamps, a candle or two, and something representative and pretty. I’m very much into art too though, so a painting above the bed would look fantastic! I might do one myself!
You may notice in this bedroom inspiration round up that I have included some clothes, well that’s because I feel like I will need a little clothing rail in the bedroom too, to house my brand new purchases. I often find myself inspired when I’m looking at clothing and when I get something new that I absolutely love, I want to be able to look at it and keep it close (is that weird?), so a rail to house my special pieces would be amazing! It would only be a simple one with a few things on it and some bags and shoes, but until I’m ready to put those pieces in the closet, I’d like them on a rail in my room. I think it would add a little lived in touch to the bedroom decor at the same time as providing inspiration for my work too. In my head, I know exactly how I would love our bedroom to look and parts of these photos below all blend into one to make the bigger picture. I would love to know what you have your bedroom like, or what your bedroom goals are?
A very joyful and welcome collaboration between myself and the lovely Julian Charles.
