My Dream Bedroom

Good to be Home are running a competition for bloggers to show what their unique interior design style would look like by creating a blog post with samples of the furniture, wall paper, furnishings, art, etc that would be in your dream bedroom or living room.  This is being run in partnership with Laura of Little Stuff and Arianna from Heart Home.

I have decided to show you my dream bedroom. I’ve created a moodboard on Polyvore. I still need to work out why prices are automatically displayed in dollars rather than pounds and the product names also modified. I had to change them all back manually.

I’ve chosen the antique brass “Krystal” bed in a spacious king size as I love its classical look.  And I’ve never had wallpaper, so it was exciting to choose the Beka design in a gorgeous lavender shade.  I think 4 rolls should be sufficient.  I’ve then continued the colour scheme of purples and mauves for the duvet cover, pillow cases, curtains, cushions, throw and a comfy bedroom chair.  Then a light fitting in antique brass to compliment the bed.

My current wardrobes are fitted, so I plan to keep them along with the matching drawers, dressing table and bedside cabinets.  However I have chosen a beautiful mirror for the dressing table.  I couldn’t find any purple table lamps, but these grey ones will go nicely.  And finally I have always wanted a tea maker in the bedroom.

I’m linking my post up with Heart Home.

My M&S Magical Dining Room

Marks and Spencer are running a competition for bloggers to showcase their dream dining room.  This is being judged by interiors experts: Jen of Love Chic Living and Jenny of Treasure Hunter UK. I’ve missed the chance of doing a Christmas theme, so instead mine is for a special winter dinner party entertaining friends.

I would choose the Greenwich oval extending dining table, great for just the 4 of us and extended for entertaining.  This would be matched by the Greenwich padded dining chairs for a touch of comfort.

Then I would go for a striking red look, with the Manhattan dinner set.  This has 4 dinner plates, side plates and cereal bowls, so I would purchase 2 sets, plus matching pasta bowls, mugs, teacups and teapot.

Sticking with the red theme, I’ve chosen some red enamel napkin rings, which I will pair with traditional white Autograph cotton napkins.  And I’ve never possessed a table runner, so I’ve chosen a lovely red pleated one.  I couldn’t find any red placemats, so I’ve selected black granite mats.

It is always nice to have candles burning at dinner for atmosphere, so I’ve picked a modern glass tealight holder.  I’ll purchase 2 of these plus a supply of tealights.

Then glassware, white and red wine glasses in the Nova range and Marcel Wanders hi-ball tumblers.  Plus a 44 piece set of stainless steel cutlery and we’re ready to eat.

I’ll add some sparkle with large floral arrangements, but these will be on the window sill rather than on the table.  And some magic with balloons, white fairy lights, ribbons and table confetti.

Here’s my mood board featuring my choices from M&S.  I’ve had great fun window shopping online.My M&S Magical Dining Room
