Fashionable Interiors

I have always thought that someone's bedroom can reveal an awful lot about their personality. You can find out little aspects of them which you won't necessarily pick up from talking to them. I have recently being doing my room; it was due a change as my tastes have got a little different as I have gotten older. My room isn't complete just yet; there are just those annoying last touches to go which always seem to take an age to getting round to. But I thought I would show you some details of my room so you can get the general idea and of course so you can have a nosy.
The idea for my room all came from seeing this wallpaper:


Which now sits proudly behind my bed. I was then set on theme centered around the colours: turquoise, white, cream and silver. I was on the look out for some amazing accessories for my room and I came across this mirror for £15.


It was reduced because it had been repaired along the top where the bow is, but you couldn't tell and I thought it was a real bargain. It was also originally gold; my dad volunteered to spray paint it for me and I was left with this beauty. I love the way it reflects my wallpaper and makes my room seem bigger.
Of course every fashion blogger should have a stack of 'coffee table' books, these are just some of mine. The statue was my mums which she kindly donated. He makes an excellent bookend. I got the Buddha from Next; he fits right in with the colour scheme.



I have a fairly large amount of jewelry and it is always a challenge, thinking of ways to store it; so you don't end up spending half your day untangling necklaces before you can actually wear one of them. I ended up buying two of these jewelry heart hangers from BHS to store my rings/necklaces/earrings. It also makes for a nice display for my room.


I also bought this cake stand from Next to store most of my nail varnishes on and also to hold my bracelets. I'd seen other people do this before and I thought it was a brilliant idea.



I saved the best till last. I picked up my dressing table at the same place I bought my mirror; the best thing was they were having a third off that day so I got it for something like £120!



I would love to see some of the details from all my lovely readers rooms (and any new people, hello!), so if this post leaves you feeling at all inspired please create a post and let me know so I can read it.
