Say hello to my newly painted and spruced up dressing room! The old wall paper has been replaced with fresh Almond White walls, the dull bedlinen has been disgarded for a contemporary aqua blue patterned bedspread, and I now have a beautiful new statement light shade.
I use this room a lot. It not only acts as my dressing room but a spare room too as the Ikea day bed pulls out to become a double bed. Since I moved into the house almost five years ago the room has seen a few image overhauls but I’m so glad I’ve finally got rid of the flowery wall paper that had been put up by the previous owners. I felt the room was busy enough with artwork, books, ornaments and makeup items so I opted for neutral walls to bring a calming quality to the room.
But I love colour which is why I was drawn to the amazing two tone light shade by Lane. I knew the duck egg blue would match in nicely with my other blue accessories. The pop of yellow adds a fantastic fun quality to the room which I adore. The shade itself is made in England using extremely high quality thick card. My light shade is called the Brighton and Mr David and is the result of a creative collaboration with Lane and the British luxury paint brand Little Green. There are a range of other colour combinations available too which are equally as beautiful and eye-catching.
My new double bedspread is called ‘Maddison‘ and is from the Debenhams Collection. Since I’ve went with neutral walls I can afford to inject some colourful pattern in the way of soft furnishings. Other small changes include a new radiator and some re-positioning of artwork (I now have two amazing Liz Clements prints) and the removal of a boring lamp. All my furniture items have remained the same as I invested in the Ikea bed, floating shelves and dressing table a few years ago and I still love their excellent functionality. And I wouldn’t be without my beautiful thick ivory rug from The Rug House which isn’t even a year old.
It’s safe to say I am delighted with my new-look room. Thank you to my other half Phill for doing all the hardwork! Have you got spring decoration fever?
And before I forget! My home featured in this month’s edition of Ikea Family Live Magazine which I am delighted by! You’ll see what my dressing room used to look like in it as the pictures were taken a few months ago.
Thank you to Lane for sending me the Brighton and Mr David light shade to use and review.
