Interiors | If I had £1,000 to design a dream room..

9.10.14



If any of you follow me on Pinterest you may have seen that I have a slight obsession with interiors, particularly all things floral, pink and vintage.  A few weeks ago the lovely people over at Thinkmoney.co.uk  contacted me about designing my dream room for 'The Great Escape' campaign. 3.3 million UK adults live with their parents and Thinkmoney is going to help one of them escape! So what's my role? The person who wins this competition will get their first months rent and deposit paid, as well as getting their place kitted out! And I've been asked to put forward some ideas of my dream flat and my 'must-have' interior pieces. 

My bedroom at the minute is completely my cup of tea, which is why I'm basing my dream room on it! My preference of decor is always a feature wall, with some kind of vintage or floral pattern a bit like those seen below, and the other 3 walls cream or white. Cath Kidston have some incredible wallpaper similar here. I particularly love the Antique Rose Bouquet print! I think this makes the room appear larger and more open and I personally love it in my room at the minute.

 The main feature of any bedroom is obviously the bed, which is why I've chosen this stunning 4-poster from Fearne Cotton's home range on Very. And I would pair it with this gorgeous floral bedspread from, believe it or not, Tesco!

It's no secret that I'm an avid reader, and ever since watching Clarissa Explains it All as a kid I've been dying for a window seat with a mismatch of cushions to curl up in and get lost in a book! I realise a window seat isn't the most realistic bedroom feature, but a jumble of vintage, floral cushions is equally as pretty and welcoming on the bed. Below is my dream cushion set-up but I've also selected some more reasonably priced cushions from Dunelm that would be perfect in my dream room!

I'm a big fan of chairs in bedrooms, it's nice to have somewhere to sit other than the bed! My current bedroom unfortunately isn't quite big enough to accommodate a chair, but if I had the room (and the funds!) I'd definitely choose a vintage style tufted chair, probably pink lets face it. Something like this is right up my street, I just think it's so cute!

Now, you all know I love a bit of makeup, and without a doubt one of the highlights of my day is putting my makeup on (sad I know) but it just makes me feel put together! I've recently been lusting after a proper dressing table, with a stool, drawers and mirror and whilst doing some research for this post I came across the perfect one. I adore this antique, french dressing table. I think it's a perfect size as it's not too big, and the little drawer is perfect for keeping your crucial make-up bits and pieces!

For me, that's the main bases of the bedroom covered. But to make it a smidge more homely I'd add some fairy lights, countless photo frames with pictures of my loved ones and maybe a stuffed animal for good measure - I am a child at heart after all! Pinterest has some amazing fairy light ideas, these were two of my favourites!

Finally no bedroom is complete without some candles and I think this set of 3 from Cath Kidston are so pretty and would be perfect dotted around any room to give a lovely, homely glow.

And there we have it! I probably could have gone on much longer about my specific interiors but I think the main bases were covered here. What do you think of my 'dream room' choices, do you like my layout or would you choose something different? I'd love to know! xo
