Unfortunately we haven’t managed to save enough money to complete our bedroom so whilst it is carpeted and has a fresh coat of paint on the walls it is looking a little bare and unloved. So when I came across the Debenhams Dream Bedroom competition that is being judged by the lovely Jen from Love Chic Living and the equally lovely Annie from Mammasaurus I knew that this would be a great opportunity for me to gather all my ideas for the room onto a moodboard.
The idea of the competition is to head over to Debenhams (specifically looking at their bedroom section) and simply design your dream bedroom for under £5000.
Two tone ‘Burlington’ high foot bedstead – £320
Two tone ‘Burlington’ 3 drawer bedside chest – £200 x2
Two tone ‘Burlington’ dressing table – £240
Plum Serenata wallpaper – £13 per roll
Designer ‘Betty May’ bedding set – £46
Grey scratched lamp – £68 x2
White ‘Mr Mrs’ letters – £12
Grand Total = £2679 – I can’t believe that I have only spent just over half the allowed budget… it just goes to show you that kitting out a room doesn’t have to cost the earth.
It’s obvious from my mood board that my love of purple is a key factor in my accessories, however I have decided to stay fairly neutral with my furniture selection allowing us to keep for years to come and simply update/refresh the accessories as and when needed. I’m not too sure what Mr Boo would make of the chandelier however I think most little girls hope to have a chandelier in their home when they are older and this is my opportunity (I’ll leave any jokes about swinging from the chandelier over to you *wink wink*).
So fingers crossed that I am selected as their overall winner and I could bag myself £500 Debenhams vouchers, or even one of the runners-up prizes of £50 Debenhams vouchers… first on my list to buy is that fabulous wallpaper, I think it will make the room feel instantly warmer and inviting.
