I’ve had the hardest time deciding what I wanted to do with the bedroom. We had some blinds made early on and I wanted plain/neural blinds like downstairs, but my partner wanted patterned. After a lot of debate, I just let him pick. A lesson learned – always stand your ground when it comes to picking decor!
Anyway, the blinds arrived and although I do like them, I couldn’t figure out how to decorate the rest of the room so they would fit. I’ve bought a few sets of bedding but then sent them back as the colouring wasn’t right. It’s been a bit of a nightmare!
Anyway, I’ve finally cracked it. I decided I wanted a blue similar to what’s in the blinds for a ‘feature wall’ and got a few samples from B&Q. I picked the one I liked the most and off we went.
I went with neutral bedding from Dunelm and also bought some leaf prints with a neutral background to match – they were only £8 each!
With the leftover paint, we painted the en suite. Here’s how it turned out..
Just want a blue throw for the bed now and considering some blue pillowcases for the second pillows! I would love to do some DIY panelling like my neighbour Gemma has done, but that is a job for another day!
