My University Bedroom

Hi guys, 

I thought i'd do an inspirational blog to give some ideas to any of you that are leaving home maybe to go to college or university or simply those that feel like re-designing your bedroom this year. I wanted my bedroom to have a  'french boudoir' feel to it. As you can see from the images I combined delicate pastel fabrics with some antique style pieces to create this traditional style.      

I sourced my bed linen from Laura Ashley, it was quite pricey but definitely worth it as it's obvious the fabric is high quality. Sadly this is no longer available but NEXT have recently introduced a range of high detailed 'French Style' sets that have been inspired by Paris with intricate embroidery, delicate trims and soft ruffles that I urge you to check out! I've listed some of my favourites below.

My dressing table is actually supposed to be a desk, but for now there is no harm in stacking heaps of make up on it because i'm not back at university just yet...


I love my rose carved mirror, I bought this not long ago from Matalan, BUY HERE. Matalan is great for accessories just like this because they can make a huge difference to the 'look' of your bedroom for a reasonable price! 

I cannot recommend this new reid diffuser enough by NEXT. You can see my full review of this item HERE. 

 
I bought this antique style lamp not long ago from my local BHS where they offer a huge collection of quality lighting at good prices. 

My wardrobe isn't that large but I cannot complain as I have plenty of drawer space. Hung up I have my gorgeous lace overlay dress £58 BUY HERE and my grey tweed jacket £69 BUY HERE both by NEXT. 

I'd love to know what you think about my bedroom and I'd love to see some pictures of yours! 

Take care, B xx
