We've been in our flat for around six weeks now, and the only room that feels pretty 'done' is our bedroom - so this is kind of a retrospective moodboard, if you will. 

From the first time we viewed the flat back in June, the bedroom was one of the biggest selling points for us. Light, bright and spacious, with plenty of room, high ceilings, big windows and a walk-in wardrobe(!) - it had everything we were hoping for. Add to that plain white walls and new stripped floorboards, and even without anything in the room, it had that kind of Parisian loft feel we had been dreaming of.

We very much wanted to keep the feeling of brightness and airiness in this room, to have it feeling calm and relaxing, so we're keeping the bare white walls (although they'll need a fresh lick of paint, admittedly) and the floorboards too. And luckily, we already had pretty much all of the furniture we needed for our bedroom, so there's not been many big things that we've needed to purchase. I think of this room like a salad - it's all in the dressing.

To make sure that the whiteness of the room doesn't feel too blank or cold, we're adding in touches of blush pink, soft grey and flashes of metallics too. Millennial pink is everywhere, so why shouldn't it be in your bedroom? 

I'm mixing crisp white bedlinen with lots of soft, romantic textures and colours - like this super-soft blush blanket, and a pile of gorgeous velvet cushions in pink and grey to snuggle down in too. I've also been dreaming of a statement chair, and this rattan rocking chair, complete with a snuggly sheepskin rug, would make the perfect spot for me to cosy up in with a book, wouldn't you agree? Our copper cage light fitting (bought back in 2014, so ahead of the curve...) adds a lovely touch of warmth and modernity to the space, and this gorgeous rose quartz print is ideal for making the room feel serene and romantic - it's a birthday present to myself, after weeks of deliberation.

The bedroom is nearly finished now - we do need to get that lick of paint out of the way, and then we can hang pictures, and hopefully a slim shelf above the bed to prop more prints up on too. Already, it's the loveliest bedroom either of us have ever had, so I am so excited for the finished article!

What do you think of this look?
