I've spent the past week redecorating our attic bedroom, inspired by the colours of a beautiful floral bedspread that Mum recently brought for us. I painted the majority of the walls in Farrow & Ball's 'Pointing' and then picked out the deepest pink in the bedspread and matched it with Dulux's 'Garnet Symphony 3' to use in the recess between the two chimneybreasts and on a single wall.
All the furniture in our bedroom is either car boot, reclamation yard or auction buys. The two table lamps are car boot bargains from the late 1980s, my favourite being the 1970s one. I also have a matching chrome standard lamp that I brought at a different boot sale, which I think I paid a fiver for at the time; however, the plastic lampshade is broken and I think I'm pushing my luck to ever find another original lampshade - but perhaps I'll be third time lucky! The swing mirror was one of my first ever auction buys and rests on top of an old chest of drawers that I had in my childhood bedroom.
As our bedroom doesn't have any heating, it can get a bit chilly in the winter, so I've dug out another boot sale bargain: my feather eiderdown, which does make a difference (combined with my trusty hotwater bottle!).
