Hotel chic for your bedroom

A few weeks back I stayed at a swanky hotel for work. I’m usually more of a B&B or Airbnb type as I prefer quirky and homely interiors and homes with personality as opposed to ‘designed’ rooms. However, every once in a while it’s just lovely to indulge something a little more luxurious and have room service available, don’t you think? And that made me think.

7 Creative Bedroom Ideas to Try This Weekend

When it comes to our bedrooms, most of us will naturally go with décor that’s calm and serene. And of course, that makes sense when we want our bedrooms to be a sanctuary away from the rest of our house – somewhere we can go at the end of the day and recharge our batteries. However, what often happens is that we try so hard to make our bedrooms look ‘calm’ that they can very easily cross the line to ‘boring’. And if there’s one thing that’s not very enjoyable at all it’s a boring, bland, flat room with no personality.

Children’s Bedrooms in Small Spaces

In an ideal world all bedrooms would be created equal. Children wouldn’t argue over who had the larger room, and as parents we wouldn’t stress over how to create a working bedroom in a small space. In our Victorian home, the third bedroom really is a box room, and our 7 year old is struggling to enjoy the space she has. I have learned from experience about how to make the best of a smaller kid’s bedroom, so would like to share my top tips in the hope of helping you, if you have the same predicament.

Top Scandi Wallpaper for Tween Bedrooms

‘ve been spending a lot of time recently researching for a makeover at home. My eldest daughter is now 10 and would like a more grown up bedroom. Decorating a tween room is a challenge, and has to be done in conjunction with her likes and dislikes so seems to be taking quite some time. I’m proud to say, she is a fan of wallpaper and has been looking around for the perfect design. Thankfully she’s a fan of contemporary, sometimes retro prints so we have had quite a lot of fun sourcing our favourites. I thought it would be a great idea to share some of our best finds with you. Most of these are suitable for girls, but do come in alternative colourways that would be great for a boy’s room too.

Industrial touch…

In case you hadn’t heard, the industrial trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon. It looks like it’s here to stay for some time yet. Having of course been around for a little while, it has become a firm favourite with designers and stylists alike. Like a lot of trends, this one could easily dismissed as a fleeting bit of fun. However, this is more than just a trend to buy into and then discard.

Spring decor with cherry blossoms

June is one of the prettiest and most romantic months of the year and despite the fact that most cherry blossoms have by now faded away, I can’t help associate the month with these pretty flowers. It is also the month when we might start thinking about travel and our summer holidays. Far away countries, different cultures and interesting designs are all a part of traveling. However, as most of us aren’t able to travel all year round, we might have to make do with bringing the world into our homes. And this is where my thoughts come full circle: cherry blossoms and travel always make me think of Asian interiors.

How to Decorate with Plants

There was a time not long ago when house plants were unfashionable. But like all good trends, things are cyclical and it was only a matter of time before we started adding greenery into our homes again. If there’s any trend for 2014 that I really think everyone should at least have a try at, it’s this one.
