Bedroom Dreaming

If you are a regular reader you’ll know our house is up for sale at the moment, in a slow property market I can but dream of my ideal bedroom. We’ve promised ourselves a King Sized bed for a start as neither of us is petite!

Its would be a great excuse to partake in one of my favourite activities- nesting (ie shopping for homewares). And my Pinterest board named“Bedroom” has a total of forty three pins so far, here’s a flavour…

a perfect greyI like a good headboard!

shuttersThe high ceilings, the shutters, the fireplace, the wardrobes, the floor *Le sigh*

black bedWe’d probably stub a toe or kneecap on this in the dark so not sure how practical it would be- but its delicious! In reality we’d probably go for a divan style bed as they tend to have a good amount of storage drawer underneath and you don’t need to vacuum underneath (much)!

I’ve perused some online retailers for bed linen already too, you can never be too prepared, and found these…

ginghamI really like this simple, classic gingham design- currently in the sale at John Lewis.


 I really love having a throw or eiderdown type thing on the bed- it just makes it that extra bit cosier especially on the chilly nights. This one is from a Etsy shop, ButaAndButi, based in Winchester.

Hopefully we’ll get a buyer for our house soon and I can start making my bedroom dreams come true! have a sale on at the moment with upto 70% off beds and mattresses, hopefully I’ll find an equally good deal when my time comes.
