Refresh Your Room with Laura Ashley

June 6, 2013
Now Spring and it’s beautiful weather has finally arrived I’ve been able to put away last season’s bed throws and blankets and lighten the bedroom up.  It’s usually this time of year when you realise what home improvements still need doing, and I definitely know that the bedroom isn’t anywhere near the boudoir I’m aiming it to be.  It’s not helped that we weren’t planning on living in this house for long and yet two years on, here we still are!  Two years on and I still have the style imperfections niggling me.

The Refresh Your Home competition run by blogger Tales of Annie Bean in conjunction with timeless lifestyle and interiors brand, Laura Ashley, has come at an appropriate time.  The task of picking elements of a room in need of a spring jujj up is a no brainer to me, simply because I’m aware of it everyday!  To win the £1000 gift card prize would most certainly help me acquire the country chic look that I’m trying to inject into our bedroom.

As you can see from this photo of our bedroom, there is much work to be done.  My biggest bane of the room is my desk cum dressing table as it’s no longer functional.  In fact, it’s going to the tip soon and I’ll have nothing to replace it with.  It’s decrepit and beyond repair, and even more crucially is a hideous eye sore!  The curtains and curtain pole also needs replacing as does the terribly uninspiring light pendant and lamps.  So, without further ado, this is my mood board, my inspiration and if you will, wish list, of gorgeous girly pieces I’m just itching to put into place in my boudoir.

This is a selection of some of my favourite Laura Ashley pieces that would perfect my ideal bedroom style.  The ditsy floral backdrop is a Laura Ashley print called Abbeville Pink that I’d firstly get made into curtains!
  1. Dahlia Dressing Table Set
  2. Pink Gingham Lamp & Shade
  3. Large White Resin Poppy
  4. Primrose Chandelier
  5. Set of 3 White Lit Birds
  6. Couture Rose Cotton Bedlinen
The Dahlia Dressing Table is simple and sleek with a touch of feminine curve.  My desk is really not worthy of being called a dressing table and this update alone would be a marked improvement in the room.

The Couture Rose Bedlinen is beautiful and vibrant without being brash, and makes a stunning colourful focal point amongst the white furniture.

The absolutely stunning Primrose Chandelier with it’s abundance of flowers would look so pretty hanging above the bed.  My current incredibly mundane paper shade would be blown out of the water.  I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite as opulent and girly.

I think we can all probably agree that these beautiful pieces would instantly transform my bedroom into the feminine boudoir it longs to be.
