Hi guys! as you can tell I'm pretty stuck on what I want to post about lately, so I thought I would do a Bedroom Tour because I do love my room and I thought I would show it off a bit :) I would say that my taste in homeware is very vintage and girly, unlike my taste in clothes which I think is quite boyish. I love lots of floral patterns, pastel colours. I'm also a sucker for fairy lights, I love how they make a room look so tranquil and as soon as I switch them on I instantly relax. I'd say that about 70% of my room is Ikea; all my furniture is from there, my bed linen and cushions are from there and the odd decorative thing like fairy lights, candles and photo frames as well.
As my budget is quite limited and I have a taste for vintage things, I tend to look for knick knacks to decorate my room with in Antique and Charity Shops because you get them for a good price and it's stuff that is very unique. I saw this gorgeous black, oriental-style vase in the window of a Help The Aged store in my local town and it was £10 so I just had to have it! I love it because it fits perfectly into my room with the colours and the style. However, my most favourite find in my room are these framed rose postcards which I got from an antique store in Germany (the frames I got from Ikea). There was a huge basket full of these old postcards with roses on and Roses are my favourite flowers. I think my favourite thing about these little postcards is the fact that a couple of them have messages on the back where people have been writing to loved ones which is so cute and an amazing bit of history in my own room.
If you know me, you'll know that I'm a huge shoe freak and I have a fairly big shoe collection. The majority of my shoes are either lined up by my bedroom door or stuffed in my wardrobe but I keep my more expensive shoes and my favourite ones on this shelving unit because a) I don't want to ruin them and b) they're quite visually pleasing, particularly my Jeffrey Campbell ones and it would be a shame to keep them piled up in a wardrobe.
Perfumes: Guilty by Gucci // Daisy by Marc Jacobs // Fame by Lady GaGa // Love by Body Shop
I would say my dressing table is an 'organised mess', since I use it a lot to get ready it's quite hard to keep it tidy but I do try my best :) To decorate I use my jewellery, perfumes and candles along with empty perfume and liqueur bottles and anything else I can't find a place for. My favourite thing on here has got to be this Skull Money Box I got from Urban Outfitters, which was pretty reasonably pricing at £15 (well for Urban Outfitters anyway). I think it makes a good centre piece and it gives a nice gothic touch to my otherwise girly room.
So that was my room, I really do love it and I'm so happy to share it with you :) In other news, I have changed the design of my blog slightly, I'm pretty happy with it considering my HTML skills are pretty limited and you may have noticed got myself an Instagram stream as well! So as always, comments and links to your blogs are always welcome and I always do my best to check them out :)
