Our Bedroom - After Shots

11 September 2015

So it has literally been months since I promised that I was going to do monthly room updates. I am super sorry, but after fixing up and making the bedroom (mostly) pretty, I decided that money wise this wasn't liable. Even though I will be living in this apart for the next few years, it's still a rental and there's other things I should be putting my money towards, than filling my rooms with new decor.

So here is the Before Post. That everyone seemed to love so much. 
I put together this really cute colour palette and moodboard to get together ideas and inspiration for how I wanted to decorated the bedroom. Which I based off a duvet cover that I purchased from Adairs

Our bedroom ended up very pastel themed, which I am loving. I'm not too sure about Joshua, he's used to it by now though. So too bad babe!

My Side of the Bed
Josh's Side of the Bed 
That's what our bedside tables look like when they are completely clean and not covered in crap like moisturiser, our ipads, tissues. Joshua has the cute little geometric Puffin and I have the fox. I found out two days ago that Josh in fact always thought it was a penguin. So yes. It is not a penguin dear. 

My side also has my dream journal and little air plant. Josh has the Tequila Mockingbird cocktail book I bought him, and a book by Hemingway, which I found for him. So best girlfriend ever right here. As well as the box for his Daniel Wellington watch. It's stylish. 

I styled the section on top which was fun, I tried to mix in the colours of the room into the decor that I picked. I got the cute little pink house from Freedom and I wanted the mini blue one to go with it but they sold out really fast, so I missed out. Luckily I found a cute air plant in the exact colour to replace it with. Unluckily it's pretty dead. I'm not sure. 

I also made the large print using a really cute font, in photoshop! Super simple, and got it printed at Officeworks for quite cheap. I would definitely consider doing more art prints for the house like this. 

Our 2x4 KALLAX Bookshelf is split evenly. We have three baskets each and the top cube is split. Mine is very pretty with my perfumes, jewellery and accessories. Josh's is overloaded with all of his stuff, deodorants, hair pomade, cologne and random stuff. Like watches and cufflinks. I'm not sure, I assume that's what's in there. Boy stuff. 

One of the reasons it took me so long to get these photos is because Josh is always in bed. By the time he is out of bed, there is no longer good daylight. Like he will be awake but sitting there. I needed to make the bed and make everything pretty to get photos of it. If he was actually not sitting there on his laptop, then I'm probably at work. 

One of my absolute favourite additions to the bedroom is my mountains throw cushion! This cutie is from the store Hush Rumble! You can find them on Etsy and Instagram. I found them as they pop up at all the adorable markets that are on around my hometown of Newcastle. 

There's also a space in the room that would be perfect to hang an artwork, it's underneath our split system air conditioner. I had picked out quite a few pieces that would work from Adairs. Such as this one. But for the moment we're saving our cash. #Savetember. 

Thanks for checking out how I restyled our bedroom! Pin some pictures if you like! *wink wink*

Cya! xx

  1. Absolutely love those lamps!!!! Too cute. This makes me want to do a total make over on my room! x


  2. I didn't seee the before post and popped on over to check it out; I'm loving the restyling! When you say Josh is used to it by now, do you mean he didn't like it before? Hahaha, the pastels are adorable and I love the design of the pillow cases! The stripes and gemetric grid basically neutralises the cutesy vibe of everything else. Those lamps are too cool and omg, your mountain throw pillow is too adorable!

    Puffin bird, penguin, same deal right? Bahaha, I love the art!

  20. I love the new decor!! I literally just officially moved in with my boyfriend two weeks ago and we are, okay, I am stressed in trying to figure out the bedroom setup. his mom was visiting and used empty shoe boxes as containers and that really got me claustrophobic let alone not enjoying the style... haha so we are really trying to redecorate asap! I like the shelf you have, really handy in separating your items. :)
