How the devil are you? It’s been all go here, both Miss A (9) and Nia (15) have had so much on, especially Nia with work (she has a Saturday job) exams and practicing flute for a music tour she’s doing and a play. I’ve also gotten a lot busier on the blog too and The Tall Fella has been working long hours at his job whilst it goes through some changes. A few changes at home have also been happening this spring, lots of gardening, decluttering, moving some furniture around too that we had already. Just trying to ring the changes – I love that phrase!
One room that’s seen some changes is the main bedroom. Some things you can’t see like the bags of clothes I’ve sent to the charity. I’ve also been through my bags and accessories too. I’ve been wanting to show you how my bedroom looks, especially my new art work for ages, but just not had the chance..or the ironed bedlinen ;). So here goes….
I bought the art and the frames all from Desenio, a company I’d also used in my home office a few years ago. I’d been really impressed with the print selection, they are so reasonably priced, as were the frames. It was the first place I looked at actually. Desenio also contacted me, and offered a 25 % discount code for my readers, which I’ll share at the bottom of this post.

Above the bed were three mirrors, but I decided I wanted to change those to prints instead, something with more of a tropical or botanical feel, as I thought it would work better with the woven headboard.
I am so pleased with the result! The walls are a very pale pink, so I went for pinks and greens. Subtle and calming I think, which works well for a bedroom.

The other thing I did was something I’ve wanted to do for so long, but as my bedroom is tiny and I couldn’t work out how to do it. I am very into make-up and skin care but the only place I could store it was on a shelf in my wardrobe. Which worked OK, but I really needed the extra space, as I wanted to use that for shoes to be a bit more organised. So that’s when I spotted this ladder shelf system, which just about fits in the only spare place in the room. It’s a bit tight to be honest, but the results are worth it.
I already had the storage boxes from either Muji (clear ones) or IKEA (white) to put in all of my bits and pieces in, so I wanted to add some more art work to the shelves, to make it feel a little more like a dressing table, giving it a feminine vibe.
I was really spoilt for choice on the Desenio site and managed to find the perfect ones. The great thing about Desenio is you can buy prints in various sizes, including poster size art, so you can really mix and match and totally design the look you want. Including the colour of the frames. I kept these monochrome but they have others available.
I couldn’t resist adding a few plants. I’m not sure how much light they’ll get (my bedroom is north facing) so I’m adding them slowly, plus the big cactus is faux.
It works really well. I just take the trays onto my bed, and get ready . The only thing I’d not really thought about was dust, but I’m hoping it doesn’t get too bad on them.
I thought I’d label the art to make it easier, if you fancied buying any of them.
I’ve added links for each of them as well.
