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.

Bed Linen

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

Here are my 11 questions from Little s, Big World

1. If you could only wear one type of shoe for the rest of your life or go barefoot, which would you choose?

I'd probably choose to wear my black wedge boots for the rest of my life. This is because I find it so hard to find comfortable high shoes (to make me taller) so these would be perfect to wear during the day time or evening. 

2. Do you prefer warm or cold climates and why?

I love the sunshine, but I always burn because I'm so pale so i'm glad that I live in a colder climate! I also prefer wearing my autumn/ winter clothes, nothing ever beats wearing comfy jumpers and scarfs.  

3. A casting agent spots you on the street and asks you if you want to act - which movie genre do you choose to be in?

Definitely a rom-com because they're my favourite films!

4. If you could describe yourself as any ice cream topping, what would you be? (I'd be rainbow sprinkles)

Haha, strawberry sauce because I love sweet things!

5. Drink of choice? Coffee, coke, champagne? Take your pick!

Definitely the cheaper version of champagne, Lambrini  

6. What kind of phone do you use?

I have a white IPhone that I've recently dropped so the glass on the back has smashed. I hope my mum doesn't read this...

7. Who was your first celebrity crush?

Richard Fleeshman. When I was younger I used to be obsessed! I wrote to him and he replied and sent me his autograph, cutie  

8. If you could raid anyone's closet, who would it be?

It would definitely be everything on Atlantic Pacific's blog, I want all of her clothes... 

9. What's your favourite item that you own?

I have so many favourite things that people have given to me that remind me of different times that I love. My favourite fashion items would probably be my mulberry handbags. 
10. If you could live anywhere for a year and come back as though nothing had changed, where would you live?

deserted island would be lovely

11. If you won the lottery today, what is the first thing you would do?

I doubt that i'd stop going to university and not work for the rest of my life, I think that would make life boring. I'd give money to my friends & family and leave some to lead a comfortable life and do the things I want to do like travelling and definitely a bit of shopping!
