Day 4 (and 3)

Oops, day 3 kind of got away from me. But I’m pleased to say that in an uncharacteristic display of organised-ness, presents have now been bought and wrapped, Christmas food has been ordered and so now it’s down to the more pleasurable business of scouring the market for some great home gifting ideas for you.

So today I’m combining days 3 and 4, which are the bedroom and guest bedroom. I think this works for both. It’s a carafe and glass set from Rowen and Wren


I think it’s always nice to offer guests some water in their room and this smoky set caught my eye because it works with the fresh green of our spare room.

It also fits well with the main bedroom. Getting our room right during our renovation was one of the biggest challenges. The room had quite a dingy feel, despite two large and beautiful windows thanks to the fact we get no direct sun on the back of the house and it felt quite uninspired with its cold walls and carpet. We looked at many different colour and pattern options – and I mean many! – before settling on a simple warm and restful colour scheme of creamy beige with slightly mossy tones. The injection of some black accessories against the neutral walls and crisp white bedding creates a modern contrast but still maintains the clean and simple overall feel.

Before…

…during….


…and after!

But what I’m really eyeing (and not to cheat you out of a day 4 pick) is a black window mirror like this one from Maisons du Monde.

  1. What a great post. I love the final reveal! I love the armchair you have, I just have to ask where it’s from? It’s absolutely gorgeous!
