It's been just over four months since hubs and I moved into our new build house and in that time we've worked hard to put our stamp on the property and turn it into a home. I've shown you little glimpses of our home before, but today I want to take you on a tour of our master bedroom and en-suite...
Situated at the front of our house, the bedroom gets a ton of light, even on the dullest days, which is something I love, because the bedroom in our old house was so dark, even in the middle of the day. We've gone with a grey and yellow theme because a) yellow is my favourite colour (and I told hubs we always have to have a room with yellow in it; last house, it was the kitchen) and b) our bed was grey and I wanted a grey carpet. Obviously at the moment we still have the hideous builder-grade magnolia on the walls, but that's ok, because I'm not actually sure what I want to do with the walls as yet.
The wall behind the bed is crying out for a gallery wall, which is a project for the next few weeks.
Our bed is so comfy and I've splashed out on linen from The White Company and let me tell you, it is THE actual best. Our mattress has some fancy technology that helps me stay warm and hubs stay cool, and combined with our wool duvet (wool also helps to regulate your temp. when sleeping), we're getting some super good sleeps; we just need to learn to go to bed earlier.
Our chest of drawers and bedside tables are from the Hemnes range at Ikea, and the bookcase is a £40 bargain from Gumtree that I transformed with the help of Annie Sloan (dedicated post coming soon).
We're fortunate to have an en-suite shower room (first door on the left - the middle door is a cupboard and the right-hand door leads out to the landing) in which we've continued the yellow and grey theme (thanks Next).
Our bedroom is a real sanctuary; in fact, we've both commented that it has the luxuriousness of a hotel room (without the impersonal feel). I'm thrilled with how the room has progressed over the last four months and once we've done the gallery wall behind the bed, it'll be complete... until we decide on how we're going to paint/decorate the walls that is!
