My neutral bedroom makeover reveal blog post is one I’ve been sitting on for a while - I thought I’d finished the bedroom back in January, but it was clear that there were some styling issues when I brought all the abstract ideas together in the final design scheme. Then I started some other projects, before finally finding the time to sort it out and fix the issues I had with it (which were, basically, that the rug made it feel too boho; the drawers were too ‘warm’ coloured for the room, especially with the exposed brick fireplace; and with a reshuffle I decided I could fit an armchair in, for throwing clothes on more than anything)

Floors have been sanded, coving installed, doors both completely restored and taken out, ‘upholstery’ done (that’s me + staple gun), new lights installed and new furniture put in place. You can see the before shots over on my planning post, but for now, here’s a tour of the room and the details of what I used.
