Hey, how’s things? Work and home life have been pretty full on lately-I blinked and November was gone, which explains my tardy contribution to last month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers topic, ‘a cosy and green bedroom’. So today, I’m sharing a corner of our bedroom with you. In fact, I used this post as impetus to give the walls a refresh-they were Magnolia a couple of weeks ago. Just a simple lick of paint has given our room a lift and makes the most of the wonderful light we get throughout the day.
I was thrilled when I saw that the topic was all about cosying our rooms for winter; this is my favourite time of year for snuggling under favourite blankets, layering up with jumpers and watching the world from a window.
The wooden wall hooks are a recent DIY that I’ll be sharing with you soon and the ‘Kiss Kiss’ banner looks quite at home there, don’t you think?
Bulbs have become my newest obsession-both plants and lights! I found the ombre blue rimmed pot in a charity shop for peanuts and love how it looks against that deep purple hyacinth bulb. I’m buying up more this week to put into clear jars-they don’t need soil to grow in as they have everything they need inside the bulb. The spiky succulent on top of the books was a recent score from Ikea which sits well inside a soft green glazed terracotta bowl from Serax.
The beautiful hanging bedside bulbs were a result of my pure hatred of the insipid ceiling light that we never use anyway, so we sourced the materials and made our own. The fabric cable is aptly named ‘Old Grey Jumper’. Could I love it any more?!
Hope you enjoyed my little tour and keep your eyes peeled on Wednesday when I share Christmas inspiration and how I’ll be styling our home for the festive season.
Do you have any rituals to ready your bedroom for winter?
