There’s been a ton of change around here lately, so today’s post will be a bit of a life update as well as an interiors one. These two things relate to one another in my head, so hopefully I can explain why this bold and positive bedroom space has helped with a new start!
This Instagram post explains what has changed in my life these last 5 months, but back in July I moved into a house share in central Cambridge and found myself with a blank canvas to style, decorate and make my own. Having packed up my old studio and bedroom, I had a fresh start to make a cosy, grown up space. (Links to all products are at the end!).
One of the first pieces I chose for the bedroom was a letter press print from Anthony Burrill. I knew I wanted bold colours and a positive message, so chose Give The Joy Back in pink and red. Such a great statement.
Rather than frame the print, I opted for a wooden magnetic poster frame which was custom made for me by Dan from Utology. All of the pieces in Dan’s Etsy shop are beautifully made – I have my eye on the magazine rack now!
I opted for some textured cushions – these cotton velvet ones from John Lewis come in lots of bright colours. The bedding is the loveliest Egyptian cotton set from The White Company. Although it creases easily, it’s so soft and I’m sure it helps me sleep better! One of the first things I moved into my new space was my house plant collection! Would you be interested in seeing a post about them and more corners of my space soon? I’m still figuring out my work space, but I definitely want to share that with you too.
Anyway, this woven basket / plant pot is from the wonderful Basket Room – they work directly with women’s weaving cooperatives in Africa to create ethical, stylish, accessories with a story. I have one of their bags too and I absolutely love it.I’m not sure where the Lovely Things jewellery tray is from, but I use it for earrings.Creating a calm and inspiring bedroom space was really important for me. I have struggled with sleep the last 5 months due to really bad tinnitus and life adjustments, so having a simple and positive bedroom has been so helpful!
