I really enjoy interior design.
I constantly love looking on the Internet, in magazines & talking to my friends looking for different ideas & inspirations when organising & changing my room.
However, unlike most of my friends I still live at home (many are either finishing uni or are living in rented accommodation) & have only one room that I basically live in & can re-decorate. & for the last few months I have seriously been having the erg to re-do my room.
It has been about two years since I finally finished my room, exactly how I wanted it at the time- Shabby chic furniture, with a dark red feature wall behind my bed, "Star" in wooden letters on the same wall, black & white floral duvet cover & pillows. It did take me well over 4 years to actually buy all the furniture, paint, carpet, get the small finishing touches ect- but now I feel like I'm tired of my room as I did start the process of changing it when I was 16, so I feel that I have grown out of what I wanted my room to be like & my taste has matured since. Granted I still LOVE all of the furniture & little pieces I have got over the years & trust me I shall be keeping all of them, I just feel like I need a small change for what should be the very last time until I get my own place with my boyfriend (ekk!!)
So natural I have been searching the world of Google & Pinterest, getting inspiration & ideas of how I would like my room to turn out. I still LOVE shabby chic, however I would like to add a few more modern bits & bobs to it to make it a little more boutique & comfortable.
My colour scheme at the moment is red, white & black which I think is just too much!!! I'm loving the more neutral tones such as cream, biscuit browns, green & light pinks. I recently picked up a small tester pot by Dulux in the shade 'Leafy Cottage' & although I have yet to try it out I feel like this colour would look really good on just the wall behind my bed, as I like to do one main feature wall in my room. Unfortunately for me I have textured wall paper on my wall, as the walls behind it have got tones of holes & dents from the previous owners so alas it has to stay, but it's not so noticeable when you have neutral tones over the top of it.
I really, really lucky to be gifted these beautiful, genuine Harrods suitcases the other day from my boyfriends mum, after falling in love with them in a charity shop window, she very, very generously brought the for me & I am BEYOND happy with them! They look beautiful in my room & are exactly what I wanted, as I shall be stacking them up next to my bed as a bed side table!
So they are my thoughts of how my room shall hopefully turn out, have any of you got anymore ideas or inspirations you could give me?
