Something a little different on the blog today, as I mentioned a while back, another of my hobbies, apart from travelling, is interior decoration, which is fairly convenient as we bought a house back in April that I have been busy decorating.
I am finally at the stage where some of the rooms are almost complete and I am excited to share this part of my little world with you as this is something I REALLY enjoyed doing! ‘Welcome to my crib’ as anyone born in the eighties would say!
So here we go, the first room inspiration post I am sharing is for the guest bedroom. For this space, I wanted to have a very neutral canvas with a contemporary feel so the colours can change through accessorising rather than permanent features such as accent walls or patterned curtains. The objective was to create a calming bedroom where our guests will feel comfortable staying in.
Here is a picture of the actual space I am working with. A small double bedroom with en-suite (the real-estate agent picture makes it look a lot bigger than it really is). When we bought the house the walls were painted in a very pale baby-blue and the furniture was just neutral and plain, also don’t get me started with those netting curtains…
Below is the mood-board I created using that good old Pinterest. Forget about the blue and oak furniture, I am going for white, neutrals and clean lines. An almost minimalistic design so that anyone staying there has space to feel at home.
Want to see how the guest bedroom turned up? Pictures of the reveal are here! I hope you find the result at least half as nice as my guest bedroom inspiration images above.
