Time for a bedroom makeover ... the details

Back in January, I mentioned that I was planning a bit of a bedroom makeover ... getting rid of the awful magnolia on the walls and opting for a cleaner, brighter white. I shared some of the transformation when I wrote about finding my perfect bedding and the best bedside tables ever, but having posted a fair few photos on Instagram lately and receiving questions about where some of the finishing touches are from, I thought it would be nice to round them up in one post.

Time for a bedroom makeover

I've shared the odd photo of our bedroom on here and on Instagram but mostly of the multiple blankets on my bed and rarely of the whole room. It's not because I have anything to hide. It's a nice enough space, particularly when the sun shines through the window in the middle of the afternoon and gives the room a lovely golden glow. It's merely because our bedroom is home to all the furniture that time forgot ... all the bits and pieces that Paul and I have picked up over the years and countries in which we've lived together. It's a room of mismatched chaos, of thrown together pieces, and of an abundance of clashing colours.
