In my last post I mentioned that we haven't done much of anything to the cottage since we moved in, except for the bathroom which has really only had a lick of paint! I've decided that the next room I want to tackle is the bedroom because I think it should be a room to relax in and just now it's a bit cluttered and mismatched.

At the moment we have one green feature wall and the other three walls are a sort of white with a hint of very pale green. Our furniture is oak, carpet is grey, curtains are purple, bedding is a bit of everything and we have a nice big built-in wardrobe with sliding doors. So yeah, it needs a makeover! Here are some ideas I've put together:

I've gone for a bit of a rustic, natural theme because it suits our country cottage and it seems to be pretty in right now.

I love wood effect wallpaper but oh my gosh some of it's expensive! The one I've found is from I Want Wallpaper and is only £15.99 a roll which is a bit more affordable!

Our built-in wardrobe has plain white doors but would look so much nicer with some oak framed ones to match our other furniture and mirrored ones would make the room seem bigger and give us a proper full length mirror in the house. These are from a range at B&Q.

This bedding set from Next is totally up my street and with the wild animals it's not too busy but not too plain.

Probably the most important thing in anyone's bedroom is the mattress. It's definitely worth investing in a good mattress so you sleep like a log and wake up refreshed after a comfy night's rest! This one's from Fishpools and has a removable topper.

Chuck on a cosy throw like this one from Debenhams and some pillows to add textures and, more importantly, warmth to your bed!

Finally, how awesome are these antler lamps from Next?! They have a matching ceiling light too and I've had my eye on it for ages.

These are just a few ideas and I'll be adding more to my Pinterest board if you want to have a look!
