Six months ago I moved back into my parents house (more detailed update on that to follow!) and I’m currently restyling my childhood bedroom having only brought a bed, wardrobe and small bookcase with me from my old flat.
When I’m looking for new furniture I’ll either head to Ikea or my local Sue Ryder charity shop. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Sue Ryder they’re a national health and social care charity, who provide compassionate hospice and neurological care across the UK. Which I’m happy to support.
The furniture in my old flat (and my previous rentals) has been a collection of mix match items with one feature piece. In my old flat this was a feature fire place in the living room and I’m looking to do something similar in style with my new (“old”) bedroom.
Here are a few pieces I’m loving at the moment.
Bedding & Throws
With the Autumn and Winter season coming round now is a great time to update my bedspread with something Autumnal. I’m thinking dark purples or burnt oranges I can always count on Primark or Dunelm for bedding, soft furnishings and accessories.
I have very limited space next to my bed so a small, narrow bedside table is a must for me. Something big enough to pop my phone on charge for the evening and a book to read as I unwind for the night.
VIKHAMMER Bedside table – £55
Pair of wicker bedside units – £38.99
Something I loved in my flat was a little reading nook in the corner so a small, comfy chair is a must for me. Sue Ryder have a great selection of chairs to suit all styles from vanity stools to velvet oyster chairs, to bright pink chairs – there’s something for everyone.
My pick would be the velvet button back chair in grey… Although I am torn between that and the berry colour as it’s one of my favourite shades. 💗
I love grey for furniture as it goes with everything. It’s a great netural to have and can be paired easily with your existing furniture and colour palette.
While I was browsing the Ikea website I came across this plant pot which would be the perfect size to repurpose as a wastepaper basket / bin. No more Tesco carrier bags for me! 😉
SKURAR Plant pot – £5
I’m obsessed with candles and this candle from Primark is very cute! It’s in my favourite colour – purple – and I love the pattern. I’m definitely going to be on the look out next time I pop in.
Blossom candle – £2.50
What do you think of my selections? Would you have chosen something different? Let me know in the comments. 😊
