This year I am on a mission to redecorate the whole of our house. Inspired Wallpaper asked me if I would like to use some of their wallpaper, in an attempt to kick start me falling back in love with our home. I obviously said a big yes please! I had a look at their website and was really impressed with the selection they have to offer.

Their website is easy to navigate, you can search for wallpapers by colour, style or room. Our room has been black and grey for about 4 years now and I had really had enough of the darkness, I wanted something that was light, airy and would make me smile when I wake in the morning. It was also cluttered with mismatched furniture and items thrown on top of the wardrobe that aren’t used anymore.

I chose a Crown floral and glittery wallpaper in powder blue and cherry pink, £15.99 a roll. I never would have thought of getting a pink paper but I just loved the print and I think I was rebelling from the black and grey. Inspired Wallpaper have a room calculator so you can work out how many rolls you will need to use which is handy if you are clueless like me. You can also return any rolls you don’t need for free.

I was overwhelmed when the paper arrived, I absolutely adore it. The website pictures really don’t do it justice. It is stunning, the texture and quality of it is superb and the decorator commented on how nice it was to apply to the walls. It is a lovely soft powder blue adorned with cherry pink flowers and subtly glittered ornamental detailing and etched birds.

As the wallpaper is busy, I opted for plain silver blackout curtains from Dunelm Mill. I think the faux silk material really complements the glitter detailing in the wallpaper They start at £19.99 depending on the size.

I went for a wood look for my furniture with an Ikea Brusali wardrobe, £140, set of drawers, £80, and bedside table, £30. The wardrobe has adjustable shelves making it easy to customise the space. You can run a plug to the socket through the backside of the bedside table which fits an extension lead in it to charge tablet/phone at night. Safety fittings are included with the drawers and wardrobe to fix them safely to the wall. I think the shade of white with grey running through it goes well with the silver in the paper and curtains.

I’ve kept the accessories minimal with a photo of Lucas, candle, our teddy bears and Lucas’ newgate clock. I’m really pleased with how the bedroom has turned out, I love how light it is, it just feels more friendly and relaxing. Next room to be completed will be the hallway and stairs.

What do you think of my choices? Do you prefer lighter and darker colours for the bedroom?x

    We’re currently trying to get our own home, so when we do, I am looking forward to decorating it and really leaving our own stamp on it!

    I think the choice you made is just lovely. It makes the room look so light and airy and I think that is always a good way to go in a bedroom.

    I love the wallpaper. I really don’t like neutrals personally as they look really boring especially when people do everything in white. I think all white looks horrible and hospital like. Last year I painted my room this really awesome blue color x

    I love how different it is and the wall paper is so pretty! I think it all depends on how you plan on spending your time in the bedroom. I like to read in cosier areas so a warm coloured room would be best for me yet I love how fresh lighter colours are!

    We bought our new home in November, and moved in a week before Christmas as the place needed gutting and re-wiring. We ripped out the kitchen and the flooring in the back of the house. We’re still living with unpacked boxes, dodgy plasterwork, and unfinished kitchen and a whole bedroom we can’t use!!! I can’t wait until we’ve got the time and money to start actually doing it all up properly!! #ablogginggoodtime

    Omg I love it. It really goes well together. It is also our plan to do our bedroom at some point this year. I have already choose the wallpaper that is similar to yours but more of a green than a blue. After seeing yours I know it’s going to make my bedroom look so much lighter. Can’t wait to see your next project.

    I think it looks great. I love how clean and uncluttered it looks. I personally am not a fan of wallpaper. Not because of how it looks but I find it rather inconvenient to deal with. It’s easier to paint. #DreamandSparkle
