Lifestyle | An Updated Bedroom Tour ♥

I have wanted to do one of these for a some time now, I did blog a bedroom tour back in September 2013 which you can see here if you want a recap.
Since then a lot has changed but I have still stuck to the same theme, I have worked on that theme a bit more to create this bedroom/sanctuary.

Mine and my husband's bedroom is quite personal which is why it's full of things that make (us) me mostly happy and smile - you could say this room is my happy place and it is where I feel most relaxed.

We sadly don't own our own home but all that will be changing soon so this is temporary for the next year or so - I already have big plans for the bedroom in our new home.
I will try my best to tell you where most items are from, some are old and some are brand new bits I have added recently.


ROOM DECOR


The Painting - This was actually a purchase from a charity shop, I saw it in the window and fell in love with the scene, it was a day or two until I went back to actually buy it for £10.00, it is a copied print by a famous artist called Brent Heighton he is well know for his water colour, oil and acrylic paintings, he has recreated many parisian love scenes in paintings and his art is beautiful.
I think I will be buying more prints in the future.  

Paris Is Always A Good Idea Print - The frame was from my local poundland and I simply attached some white string on the top so it could be hung.
The actual print is online from this etsy store which I bought online here.
The frame below it is from my local quality save, me and my bestie bought matching frames not long before we booked Paris so we could put photos in when we got back.

Stick On Butterflies - These stick on butterflies were only £1.99 can you believe from quality save again - they sell some really pretty decor for your home there.

Wall Plaques - The "Every Love Story Is Beautiful But Ours Is My Favorite" was from a pretty shop in Camden London - sometimes the smallest shops sell the prettiest things.
I've also used this plaque to surround myself with photos of happy times too.
The "When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever" plaque is again from Quality Save - they actually still sell this down there home aisle in the wedding section - I'm sure this was only about £2.99.


 STORAGE


Heart Shaped Storage Basket - I'm not entirely sure where these were from as they were a Christmas present last year but they did come in a set of three.
Little baskets like these are perfect for storing your bottles/potions and bits and bobs in - they make crowded surfaces look a little prettier and tidier.

Wooden Necklace Hook - This is a recent purchase from Lily Rose Co, you can buy it hereit is perfect for holding my favourite necklaces and looks so vintage and chic.

Cat Jewelry Dish - This is also from Lily Rose Co, you can see that here, it is sold out at the minute though.
Anyone who knows me well will know I'm a bit of a crazy cat lady so this little dish is perfect for holding my Pandora bracelet and my engagement and wedding rings when I take them all off at night.


BEDDING


Primark do the cutest bedding ranges and I picked this up a few weeks ago after seeing it in store before.
In case you didn't know I'm rather obsessed with Paris and this double duvet set just fits in perfectly in our bedroom.
It only cost £14.50 too and the little scatter cushion was only £4.00 - both are in store now as of June 2015.
Luna loves to sit on our windowsill and bird watch too.


FINISHING TOUCHES



The Mirror - I actually did a post on this earlier - I up cycled this mirror from looking boring and plain using only napkins and pva glue and water - you can see how I did this here.
I get many compliments about it an I love that no one has one just like it.

Friendship Plaque - This is a Christmas present from 2013 - I love anything my friends get me, little quotes like this make me smile and I'm so grateful for the friendships I have in my life right now.

*Alarm Clock - I absolutely love this vintage style alarm clock, it gets me up every morning and I love it's little dinky design, you can pick this up from Room To Grow here for only £12.15 at the minute, in a range of different colours.

Make Up Brush Holder - This is actually a candle holder I picked this up for only £1.99 from Quality Save - who says you need to use everything for its intended purpose, it makes a very pretty make up brush holder for my real techniques brushes.

Butterfly Fairy Lights - These cute little butterfly fairy lights are from Primark and were only about £2.99 I got them recently - they create a nice cosy glow in the bedroom at night time.

Eiffel Tower - I picked this up in Paris for about 5 euro's, everywhere sells them but make sure you go into different gift shops because some can try and charge you more.


I hope you enjoyed looking around my bedroom, if there is anything I have missed or you are wondering where I got something not mentioned in this post from please comment below.
