Bedroom Wishlist

Overall, my bedroom is the room in our house that I am the happiest with.

The overall look is exactly what I wanted when I set about creating it.

The rest of our rooms I would love to change, but there is SO much to do in them that it seems pointless making such big changes in a rented property.

And so my focus stays on my bedroom....trying to improve it further, adding more little touches.

Here are some of the things I've been coveting lately.


The theme of my bedroom is white and grey and I like everything to look classic and romantic.

The above white Toulon from Yorkshire Linens Bedspreads range
is perfect, I love the classic look and the sconced edging is so pretty. It's 100% cotton too so would be very soft, there's nothing worse than cheap-feeling bedspreads!

I have always wanted a feature wall, and a grey damask patterned style such as the one above is exactly what I'm looking for.

We have our perfect bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table so the one remaining item of furniture we need is a bedside table....this one from eBay is exactly what I'm looking for.

And finally, although we have some family photos and a print with Tyne's birth date details hanging in our bedroom we don't have any other pieces of art.....I love old school Hollywood so this unusual take on an Audrey Hepburn print from Etsy in a classic white frame would be perfect.

I'll be updating my bedroom over the coming weeks and will do a post on the finished look soon!

  1. Love the wallpaper, I think it's Laura Ashley? We were very very close to buying it a few months back! x

  2. Gorgeous choices. I'd love to do our bedroom, but we have so much to do elsewhere, it just keeps getting pushed further and further down the list! x
