When we moved into our house two years ago now, the master bedroom in the loft conversion was in need of immediate attention. We quickly got rid of the dark blue carpet and replaced with white laminate, and we painted over the plum coloured walls with their flower stickers (you can see some before pics in this post) We also had to have a radiator installed as there wasn’t one in there and it was freeeeezing! Other than that, we haven’t had the time to do much else to it, and I’m feeling the itch to get on and make some proper changes. While it is currently a nice, light and airy space, it is far from finished in my eyes, and really not very inspiring.
For ages, I’ve had in my head that I want to have clothes rails instead of a wardrobe, massively inspired by this gorgeous bedroom below belonging to Holly of Avenue Lifestyle. I think it’s also inspired by my love of shop design, and it reflects the idea of how clothes are displayed in a store. I’ve had my eye on the rails by The Little Deer (see below) BUT I’ve started to worry that the chances of it looking as beautiful and perfectly curated as Holly’s are incredibly slim. My clothes aren’t as expertly coordinated, and then I have my husband’s excessive collection of garments to consider which he already is not very good at hanging up, or putting away… It could just end up a massive messy clothes pile at one end of the room!
So, the other option (which will be more costly) is to build in some storage. I’d love to echo what we have done in the kitchen with some plywood wardrobes. My thoughts were to build it in under the sloped ceiling and turn our bed 90 degrees… although so far hubby is unconvinced by that idea. We could put them along the wall to the right of the bed potentially… we still need to have that debate! ;) I love this idea below of including a little bench seat.
I also came across these amazing plywood lockers online, which I think were made by Woodbasics, but A) they are based in the Netherlands, and B) their website is currently offline. I wish there was someone in the UK making these as I absolutely love them!
Above is a moodboard of the kind of look I’m thinking… so lots of white with wood, texture, pastel shades like pink and peach, with a dash of black to give contrast.
Goodness knows when we’ll find the time (and money!) to get cracking on this room, but at least I’ve got something to aim for! I’d love to hear what you think! ;)
