But where am I going to start…
Top of my list is the windows, having recently learned that I have a dust mite allergy one of the recommendations is that you replace your dusty curtains with blinds, so thats just what I plan to do. The previous owners have left most of their window dressings which I am glad about because although they are not to my taste (absolutely horrific) it means I can really consider and find the best option for each of us. For my boys they definitely need a black out blind because I need my sleep and they certainly need theirs! We used a temporary black out blind whilst we have been on the move but I am so sick of re-putting it on the window everyday it is going to have to be built in for ease and convenience.
For our bedroom I am thinking stripy and colourful, and a vibrant blind is a great way to give it some style without it feeling like its too much.
I love these stripy blind from Apollo they are part of the Twilight range and they can be adjusted creating two different lighting effects which I think is pretty cool. I also like how you can change your blind with your mood depending on how you feel, this appeals to me quite a lot. So here is a bit more about the twilight blinds and exactly what you get:
I put together a mood board to give myself some inspiration:
You get the idea anyway, white with striking blinds and another colour to pick out the blind and a gorgeous dangly light or two as well. For me the bedroom needs to be contemporary, fun and have a bit of glamour too which is what I was going for.
