Thrilled with my entries…really hard for Catherine to decide!!
In the end we felt Mel’s idea of a ‘bold (probably pink) ethnic pattern printed onto the canvas – like a tiny bit of wallpaper on a white wall’ was a worthy winner, as she had visualised her idea so strongly in relation to her interior.
Mel will have to send me a photograph that she wants printed. Everyone else will get a 15% discount coupon for Wallcreate.
When I was a mother of small children I went to lots of ‘Mother and Toddler’ groups. I would not say ‘I learnt how to parent’ at these groups, but I certainly learnt a lot about parenting and small children. Now I run a small business, I have found myself attending business groups with similar reliance and enthusiasm.
In my dreams I have a Princess bedroom, with a bed like this -
the Alice… night night… bye bye Douglas… A ‘Boutique Hotel’ style bedroom where people bring me croissants and orange juice and coffee in the morning and I don’t get crumbs everywhere… it’s so great! A generous fur throw would be a good addition to this bed, look out for them at bargain prices in TK Maxx.
This is the Nicole bed, also very nice. It has quite a masculine look, which can work well if you share your bedroom with a man. Natural wood and chrome accessories are obvious accompaniments.
I can’t quite believe that these beautiful beds are so reasonably priced from Carpetright!
The Isabelle is pretty too…
Metal beds always look gorgeous on bare wooden floors, a couple of sheepskins on the floor either side would cosy the interior up nicely.
The headboards look like the kind of thing I had thought were only available from interior designers…
The Ava linen headboard, in charcoal for instance…
It could not be easier or more affordable to update your bedroom, really effectively, with one of these headboards: the Grandeur is only £149 in Super King Size. It would give the room a stunning but subtle focus point. Mix up colours and textures: a linen headboard would work well with a fluffy mohair throw; purple or grey velvet cushions teamed with thick, organic, white cotton from Laura Thomas Linens, which I know is fairly traded and a silky eiderdown. The key is layering.
We would love to see it, please email me snaps and a description. I would love to either share any great ideas with my readers or even create a feature for a glossy magazine. We are always on the look out for lovely homes and room projects.
