It’s official I have a date for moving into our next property, weird to think that it’s been nearly six months since I moved into where I am now and somehow survived for six months without proper broadband or proper television…taking broadband away from a blogger is like torture and not an experience I want to repeat.
So with my moving date less than three weeks away I’ve begun doing that thing of looking at new furnishings and ideas for the home online to bring a bit of my personality into my home. Now if you read my blog you will know I like pretty, vintage style furnishings and my bedroom in particular has always been the one room I wanted to make really pretty and a place I long to relax in come the end of the week. But is it possible to create a luxury bedroom on a budget?
One of my favourite websites for picking up beautiful home furnishings at amazing prices is Achica. I first found out about the lifestyle discount site Achica about 18 months ago and have saved an absolute packet using their flash sales grabbing bedding, furniture, kids toys, kitchen crockery all at really great prices. It’s always the first place I go to when looking for bed linen and this week they didn’t disappoint me as I was looking for some seriously pretty statement bedding and stumbled across this beautiful cotton sateen peony bedding in fresh mint and pink. This bedding should have been £129 and I have picked it up for just £35 including postage.
I have opted to go with a pink theme in my bedroom with crisp white walls and simple furnishings; adding in touches such as pretty vintage style photo frames, glassware, candles, pictures and lighting as well as painting one wall in my favourite paint, Farrow & Ball’s gorgeous Middleton Pink. I love this pink because it is gentle, girly and oozes elegance and coolness. Perfect for creating a little corner of serenity and luxury just for me.
Add in some soft fairy lights in fish bowls or beautiful crackle vases and some rich heady candles this bedroom theme for me is all about luxury, opulence and femininity. The new TESCO Home catalogue has some stunning pieces at amazing prices and it was even better when I went to order online today to find I had £20 of TESCO Clubcard vouchers to use towards my purchases….it’s the little things that bring a smile.
I cannot wait to lay my head on the pillow in my little haven of serenity and calmness when it’s all complete. So far I have spent £68 in total on the bedding and the items you see in the picture above so it is possible if you shop around online to create a luxury bedroom on a budget – all it takes is a bit of imagination.
