Now, to say I have my dream bedroom would be the understatement of the century. The bare brick (which goes throughout the flat in all fairness) contrasted with the calming white walls and reclaimed wood furniture, it is pretty much exactly what I would want from a bedroom.
We added a feminine touch to the walls with some hanging prints, but more of those in another post, and littered the surfaces with rose gold and copper accents, ’cause as of late I’m a complete magpie for the stuff.
I’m a sucker for completely enveloping a bed in fun cushions. I am currently working on my summer cushions as I’ve taken it upon myself to update our cushion covers every season, that way our rooms will stay super fresh and fun, and I won’t find myself getting bored and bringing out the paint pots…
Two of our new spring additions to our cushions were these seriously chunky, textured cases from La Redoute; I’m big on texture when it comes to soft furnishings so these babies are just the ticket for adding some additional spice to our other cushions.
The bedding you can see there is also a new addition to our boudouir and honestly, not something I thought would work due to the print, however, the print is so lovely and so subtle that from a far it blends together and simply looks like a block grey shade, only when you get closer do you discover that is a speckled stripe design… Clever.

Our Living Room
I also enjoy having lots of nic-nacs and interesting pieces scattered across most surfaces in my home, quite the opposite to most “scandi” inspired homes that we are inundated with currently, but I just find it more interesting to fill my space with gorgeous photo frames and little ornaments, nic-nacs, vases’ and art that both myself and George can look at, rearrange when we get tired of it and to give our guests something to explore when they come to visit.
I also picked up this absolutely HUGE silver vase, which takes it’s place on our coffee table when it homes flowers, but sans flowers it joins our dining table, where it looks awesome with our candle stick holders. A seriously heavy duty piece that adds to our industrial vibe but in a rather Moroccan-y way.
And finally hanging mirrors; I am a complete and utter sucker for these babies. If you guys saw this Instagram post where George and I hung height appropriate hanging mirrors, you’ll already know this, but I’ve since added some more to our collection. This little black baby looks so great placed on top of our crate bookcase, just adding a little bit of something extra to it. I really love how it looks propped up against George’s Zombies poster and with a little bit of greenery for good measure. The mirror actually comes in a pack of two with an absolutely ginormous daddy-bear version, but I’m currently alone whilst George is on tour and can’t lift it over my head to settle on a place for it on the wall *must work on upper body strength*
The living room was the place that I found the hardest (although not that hard) to get just right. And in all honesty I’m still not quite satisfied with it now, which is the reason for the lack of interior posts that have been gracing PBM. However, this was the room that we had the most fun doing up; we’ve injected SO much colour into the place and really worked to amalgamate our personalities, our passions and our tastes into one room, which thankfully are pretty damn similar, so it works wonderfully.
Similarly to the bedroom texture is important with soft furnishings, however, the living room is our place for experimenting with colour, so once again our sofa is littered with an array of cushions from velvet, mongolian fur, embroidery and now tapestry thanks to La Redoute and their awesome tribal/ikat inspired cushion covers.
Thanks so much for reading.
