When we bought our house, over three years ago now, our priority was always to decorate the children’s bedrooms and our living areas. And although over the years we have done all of those things, some twice over, our bedroom always has, and still is, at the bottom of the list when it comes to priorities. That’s why I am so excited that the time has come to finally decorate our bedroom!
Given the style of our house, and especially of our bedroom, we have decided to go with a country cottage style décor, something which Gaz wasn’t actually very keen on at first but has come around to the idea when I showed him the many, many, ideas I have seen on Pinterest!
The only stipulation that Gaz had was for us to have oak furniture, albeit painted white for a gorgeous country cottage effect. He has a real thing about oak wood and how it is way better quality, and more durable, than other materials. We both love the collections from a website we haven’t used before, Lifestyle furniture, and particularly their Mariah range, although all of their furniture ranges are just stunning!
I think that country cottage is such a serene style of décor and I really want to work with the florals and the soft palettes but without making the look too chintzy. Less is definitely more when it comes to our home!
I can’t wait for our room to be completed and for us to have our own beautiful retreat to hide away in. Although with four children, that really is wishful thinking!
