I haven’t done a room tour for a while and as I was having a bit of a tidying frenzy at the weekend I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take some photos! I spent hours cleaning out my wardrobes (even under my bed!) and dusting all the little trinkets on my shelves and window sill. Everything needed a good clean and rearranging and I’m pleased to be able to relax in the evenings in a nice tidy bedroom now.
Not much has changed since my last room tour
, but if you’re anything like me, then you might enjoy being nosy and taking a peek inside someone elses home. I absolutely love home interior
blog posts and room tours, and I generally find them really interesting and inspiring. Since my last room tour I’ve collected a lot more cushions and pretty bits and pieces, mainly from carboot sales etc.. nothing in my room was expensive! I prefer recycling things and the charm of preloved goodies.
The main change is that I’ve got rid of my big ugly TV. It’s amazing how much more space it has given me and I realised how much I really don’t need to watch it. I mainly stick to watching Netflix on my iPad in bed now. I also have a new laptop which I’ve given a makeover with a custom vinyl sticker!
It’s difficult to say where most things are from, but I will try to list the places I can underneath the photos. So here’s some pictures of the little corners of my bedroom. And if you scroll down, you’ll also be able to enter my giveaway to win this pink vintage rose patchwork bedding set, as featured in my photos.
| Cat Bed
| Owl & Fox Cusions
: Sass & Belle | Other Cushions:
Dunelm | Bedding
: Homemaker Bedding | Rose Garland
My cushion collection has grown vastly over the last year! I was lucky enough to find two of the cushions at a carboot sale separately for £1 each which I was thrilled with, and the rest I have just accumulated over the months! I love my new floral patchwork bedding, it has such beautiful colours in it and I adore the print.
Desk: Ikea | Chair: Ikea|
Mirror, Nail Polish Dish & Jewellery Box: Vintage | Cat Ring Holder: Aspire Style | Jewellery Sign: Sass & Belle
I use my Ikea white chest of drawers as my little dressing table which is where I keep most of my jewellery and little bits and pieces. The gorgeous mirror I found at a carboot sale for £1 years ago, and it was originally dirty and brass which I polished up and then painted white, and I now use it to display my statement necklaces. I also like to use old teacups to store little bits in, and this pink floral one is ideal for keeping my ring holder in. I also use the little vintage floral dish that I bought for 50p from a carboot to keep my current nail polish in.
Bunting: Handmade from Cath Kidston oilcloth | Clock: Dunelm
I made this bunting years ago using random cut offs and samples of Cath Kidston oilcloth fabric. As it’s PVC coated, it can be cut without fraying, so I made it without needing to do any sewing. I simply cut the fabric into triangles, used a hole punch, and then thread through some brown twine!
Dish & Teacup: Vintage | Make Up Brush Pot: Ikea | Pink Desk Lamp: Dunelm
On my desk next to my bedside I keep most of my make up bits that I use daily but it’s a bit untidy generally. I use little dishes like this cute floral one (another carboot find) for storing cute little bits, although it’s not usually that neat!
Teacups & Deer:
Vintage | Siamese Cats
: Flamingo Gifts
: Paperchase | Wooden Mini Bunting
: Mollie and Fred
My shelves above my bed are full of cute little trinkets that I couldn’t resist. I love collecting tea cups and these are the ones I’ve decided to keep on display rather than tucked away in my chinaware cupboard.
I also have lots of cute little bits and pieces which do end up collecting dust but I adore the cute little deer! The shelves were originally untreated wood which I painted and then used some floral washi tape on the brackets (see post here). The picture frames are also just basic Ikea ones that I painted white and put pretty photos into that I printed off.

This painting means a lot to me, as it was painted by my Dads Mum who unfortunately I never really got to know, but she was quite creative (a bit like me!) and clearly very talented. This cat picture was painted on a bit of brown paper and put in a reused frame. I’ve had this on my wall since I was a little girl, but it’s only recently occurred to me that it actually looks like my Merl! It’s the perfect centre piece over my bed, and just happens to be in the perfect colours for my bedroom. It’s only small, but it’s lovely to have something meaningful that I can treasure.

Table & Dish
: Vintage | Cake Stands:
Cath Kidston | Post Box
This little table was a little DIY project for me recently, and I absolutely love it! It fits perfectly in the little gap next to my chest of drawers, and I use it to keep my cake stands, one tiered one (which is usually full of rubbish) and one flat one which I use to keep my hot hair tools on.
