Some of you may remember that on a bit of a whim, I decided to paint my bedroom a deep, dark off-black colour a few months back, including the built-in wardrobe doors which had previously been sprayed an off-white. Eek!
Then I stalled because I didn't like the bedframe, and I didn't really have a clear idea of where I was going with the room. But an easy DIY to hide the frame got me back on track, and with my enthusiasm reinstated I pushed forward, and have finally got the room looking cohesive and finished.
The addition of the fab, bargain-of-the-year La Redoute rug (I got it for £120 when it was on sale), has really bought the whole room together. Hooray! It isn't the authentic Beni Ourain rug that dreams are made of, but it certainly does the trick and has added a much needed cosiness that was lacking before.
I'm pretty happy with the way it's turned out. It's pared back, calm and grown up, and I've found myself sneaking up there to relax and read a magazine which I never did before. I still have a few plans for the room which I'll share when they happen, but it's so nice to have another room looking finished.
Here's a resource list, just shout if I've forgotten anything. As always, I'd love to hear what you think! Did you snaffle anything from the mega La Redoute sale? I was SO tempted to buy more.
