I mentioned in my last interior post '10 reasonably priced home interior sites' that when I move into my new place, I'll be decorating Neil & I's bedroom with a pastel scheme. Not too feminine but still pulling off the hotel-chic, crisp white bedlinen look I love. Like every other over-excited homebuyer I've been pinning all hell out of inspiration for bedroom decor and have since tried finding items to create the look without breaking the bank.
Check out what I found. Turns out Tesco and George at Asda are an absolute haven for cheap and cheerful pastel looks.
I have one of those nu-vintage white frame beds that's looking a bit too basic at the mo and think something like this chevron print duvet adds a fun focal point for the room. Not 100% on buying these or just crisp white/embroidered, but might pick some up for spares.
Did I ever share my serious OBSESSION with all things wicker? I think it's the country bumpkin in me. I'm expecting at lease two or three wicker accents in every room. These are roomy enough for two people's dirty laundry so I'm snapping them up!
This will fit beautifully layered at the end of the bed, and makes a handy quilt to have around on those drunken nights when your bezzy passes out on the sofa ;) I actually saw the exact same quilt from Next retailing at £50... the George one might not be as great quality but screw it. Bargain.
We're buying the biggest wardrobe you've ever seen for our bedroom, and while part of me wishes I could find a second hand, more solid piece of oak furniture rather than brand new MDF-type furniture, there's just nothingelse out there. To take the modern edge off I plan to switch the wardrobe door handles so they look a little less contemporary. A great way to cheer up dull furniture for dirt cheap.
Watercolour-esque cushions like these would look beauts on plain white bed sheets with 4 different complementing blankets in all sorts of textures. I love how these are also pin-striped on the reverse side so you can switch it up.
I realise even by just buying the pillowcase I would blow the budget in one sitting, but bedsheets couldn't get any more perfect than this Aimee range from Cologne & Cotton. Simple, excellent quality and delicate detail. Gimme!
Anything that's designed to wake me up with an alarm that resembles a foghorn doesn't constitute any more cash than around £3. This little thing looks deceivingly cute, but I bet it's at risk of being thrown across the room at 7am.
Join me over on pinterest to have a nosey of all the interior stuff I'm pinning. It's pretty addictive. I could easily get lost for a whole day on doing this....
