Monochrome bedroom Tour

The first bedroom I ever decorated was when I was fifteen and my mother gave me free reign to decorate my own room. It ended up a pink and purple mash up with some interesting creative ideas! Safe to say my style has changed a lot since then and when we moved into our home I knew I wanted a minimal bedroom that would serve as a calm monochrome retreat.

Painting the walls white provides a blank canvas for the accessories to take centre stage. I had my heart set on having a collection of our wedding photographs above the bed and it was so easy to do. I blew them up to poster size via Photobox, and simply using Ikea frames made this such a budget friendly idea! Black accents anchor an all white look, there’s something so endearing about these stark opposites.

A bouquet of flowers, a faux fur throw and oversized cushions add some softness, I think it’s important to add layers into a monochrome scheme for some depth. Long floor length curtains feel substantial and add warmth.

I often change my bedside table accessories around, but using flowers and candles are an easy way to make things feel luxurious. My current favourite candle is The White Company’s, Seychelles. I’m yet to even light it, but even unlit it carries the most beautiful fragrance.

Mirrored furniture is a great way of maximising the light in your room, especially when placed directly opposite a window. Here’s how I currently have my dressing table styled…

I adore these fashion prints from Chelsea Prints. You can find them here and here. A small tray is the perfect way to display (and have to hand) your favourite perfumes and items of jewellery without making surfaces appear cluttered.

I get so many questions about my blush dressing table stool. It was actually the stool that came with my very first dressing table that I had when I was 13! The tufted look is timeless and the fact that I still love to use blush accents in my home means, for me, it hasn’t gone out of style. It’s so nice to have unique pieces in my home that have sentimental value, some things are worth holding on to.
