My dream Debenhams bedroom

When we moved into our house 7 years ago we new that our bedroom would be the last thing to be decorated. i didn't think that 7 years later it still wouldn't be done. Our bedroom isn't relaxing or our chill out zone. Its a dumping ground for things that everyone else doesn't want in their room. We have mis matched furniture and our bed is held up with weights where the wheels have broken off. 

When I saw that mammasaurus was hosting a bedroom competition I new I had to enter. Not only can you win a £500 Debenhams gift card but you can window shop with 5 grand!

Now maybe I took this *way* too seriously and spent far too much time doing it but I wanted to create something that reflexes us both. Masculine yet feminine. Somewhere where we are both able to relax and enjoy..... and if I do stumble across a spare £5000 anywhere I will have a ready made mood board :)

1. Black New York bonded leather TV bed frame. £1296.00
4. cup and saucer lamp X2 £110
5. pink flamingo wallpaper x2 rolls £38.00
8. Silver Whisper rug 160x230cm £184
10. Titanium light fitting £56.80
11. grey bedroom chair £432.00

Total £3458.80

I'm really surprised at how 'cheap' this all came to! I would even have enough for a new TV to put in that bedframe!

I feel like the black bed frame, furniture and lighting are all manly. I would use the wallpaper on just one wall for a touch of glamour and the rest a light grey paint. I love the bedding and there was no way I could leave that out, it think it really softens the room.

What do you think of my dream bedroom?


  1. I am serious fan of flamingos at the moment so that wallpaper is mega! We are the same here, we said our bedroom would be the last thing to be done here and 5 years in it's still a state - that's why I had fun doing it too!

    Thanks for joining in x

    1. Thats good to know! I'm glad we're not the only ones!

  2. Ooh that's a smart look, love the black. :)
