The idea of looking for and buying a home is well and truly at the forefront of my mind even though I know it won’t realistically happen for around 2 years to allow me to sell my flat, save some more, be with Luke a bit longer and actually go through the process. Despite this it doesn’t mean that I can’t start looking for inspiration for the interiors and what I want within the home so recently I set up some Pinterest boards of thing I love so I can look back on them down the line.
I know the bedroom is the space we’re technically going to spend the most time in, even though that mostly will be sleeping but I thought it was a good place to start with my inspiration posts.
The bed is the absolute focal point of the bedroom and while I’m happy with the actual bed we got from Wayfair earlier this year I love the dressing of some of these beds with layering and neutral/ grey colour tones. I have some cushions currently on the bed which I do love but they don’t match the aesthetic I want for the bedroom so when we move I’d like to add these cushions in somewhere else and go back to a neutral palette.
I am never going to be minimalist so I love the idea of shelving within the bedroom for trinkets, photos and of course some plant life which I love having in the bedroom. I love the corner shelves of the above photo and because they’re white they look really clean and sleek so something like this would be nice to blend into the wall space but I also love the shaped shelves.
Skirting boards are really important and to get a contemporary look for your skirting boards I’ve looked at different shapes and colours and I think having them the same colour as the walls is a good idea so they don’t stand out so much, either that or a wood colour as I think white shows the dust far too much.
The ultimate dream goal would be to have a dressing room and be able to line it with wardrobes, shelves and units and have everything together so the main bedroom doesn’t feel as claustrophobic but realistically I don’t think this is something we’re going to get as we want 3 bedrooms so we’d either need a dressing room already in the house, or a 4 bedroom property to turn one into a dressing room and realistically I just don’t think this will be an option but you never know.
Regardless of whether we have a dressing room or not I am going to go for the most organised and compartmentalised wardrobes possible. We have an Ikea wardrobe currently and will probably just buy more of these and have different inserts in each one for exact what we need such as shelves at the top for clothing storage, a single rail for longer items like dresses, a double rail for shorter items like tops and different shelves and drawers. The thought of planning wardrobe space makes me so happy as currently we mainly have fitted wardrobes so I’ve not had anything to plan.
