Our Bedroom - Before Shots

3 Jun 2015

If I'm going to update and restyle the bedroom then I definitely want some Before shots to compare them to, so here we are! I still love this duvet set and we will 100% be keeping it, I just plan to style the room more around the new duvet cover when it arrives. 

For money and organisation reasons, I'm going to focus on finishing one room at a time, and only do one room per month. So it will take a little longer to finish everything but it will be a lot smarter financially. I'm not made of money here!

The entire month also means I have plenty of time to find everything I need. 
So the room of the month for June is the Bedroom
My Side of the Bed (look how neat it is)
There's going to bed some serious bedside table styling going on! I'm talking art and books and well my cute little airplant can stay obviously. 
Josh's Side. (messy)
Josh's side of the bed is going to get styled as well. He will just have to love it! No exceptions. 
IKEA Kallax 2x4
We have a very large built in wardrobe, but we still needed some kind of system to store our undies, socks and pyjamas in. Instead of a chest of drawers we went with the IKEA Kallax cubes! I love our decision so much, it packs more of a statement than any old drawers would have, and the entire thing including baskets was cheaper than any of the drawers at IKEA. Awesome!

The top of our little Kallax is going to get styled, with some decor and an art piece.
Can't wait! It's looking pretty sad right now with the lone plant and oil burner. 
So there you go! I can't wait to show you the final results! It's going to look fab! Only wish we could paint the walls, because then they would be a lovely white and not that yellow beige colour. Ah well, you can only do so much in a rental.
Cya! xx

  12. I LOVE Kallax shelving - I'd been wanting to get some for the past few years but didn't have an appropriate space, so I'm really pleased I've finally been able to get them for my sewing room in the new house :) I love the sound of your newly styled bedroom - excited to see the afters!

  28. Oooh can not wait to see how it all turns out. I've been looking for a place for ages (to buy) and had no luck thanks to the BEYOND ABSURD real estate markets. Honestly I don't know how it hasn't broken my spirit, I think all my Pinterest musings and interior ideas are what's keeping me focused on the game. Even if I keep getting outbid time and time again :o(

  34. decorating a rental is hard- I really wanted to do that in ours but then I get overwhelmed and don't want to put too much into it since it's not really ours, y'know? I need to do what you're doing- focus on one room at a time! Since you can't paint have you checked out some sites that have cool wall decals? There's some stuff that you can add to a wall that makes it really pop!
