When I saw that Fresh Design Blog was running a blogger competition where you had to design a festive bedroom using The White Company’s bedroom range I decided I had to give it a go. I must admit I had never really thought about creating a bedroom for the festive season but I really liked the idea of creating an oasis of calm that I could retire to in the midst of all the festive fun. I also wanted to create something snug and warming for the cold winter nights.
Festive Bedroom using choices from The White Company
My choices are shown in the mural above. I started with the bed and for a good nights sleep you can’t beat crisp cotton sheets. I love this crisp white Egyptian Cotton Bedlinen which looks like snow. For a cosy feel and for snuggling up on cold winter nights I added a Luxury Faux Fur Throw and Cushions. The fur looks really soft and I would love to cosy up in this and read a book.
A bedroom needs somewhere where you can sit to comb your hair and I love this Carlton Dressing Table. It’s sleek white lines add a sense of calm to the bedroom and I think it would look fabulous with a pile of presents underneath, ready for distributing on Christmas morning. I added a touch of mood lighting with this Antique Cut Glass Table Lamp which I think looks exotic and mysterious. For some reason when I look at it I think of Aladdin and his lamp and can almost imagine a flying carpet sweeping into the room to take me off on a mysterious adventure.
To add the final touches to my bedroom I added an Orange Grove Signature Candle as I think oranges are a lovely uplifting scent and that all important Alarm Clock. What else will wake you up early before the kids on Christmas morning!
So what do you think of my design choices?
