I have finally managed to take a few snaps of our bedroom now that it's almost finished. There are a few skirting boards to go on, some shelves to be put into the wardrobe space, a little bit of painting and a few artworks to be hung but other than that we are pretty much there. Next job is to tackle the ensuite!
We decided to stick with the wall colour that we painted not long after we moved in. The bedroom gets great light and we love the inky dark blue colour combined with the freshness of the white which has been used on the floors, skirts, window surrounds and internal wall. The blue paint is Dulux Piha and the rest of the room is Resene Alabaster.
The wall was built to allow for a walk through wardrobe to be tucked in behind it. We decided to put two chests of drawers on the opposite wall to create more storage for clothing and also somewhere for us to put our everyday bits and pieces.

The size and price of the round K-Mart mirrors made them the obvious choice to put into the walk through wardrobe space. I've hung them on some Zakkia concrete hooks to tie in with the concrete side tables from MintSix. The door is still waiting to see a paintbrush. I ran out of enthusiasm by the time I got around to that side of the room, so it stayed in it's fairly average looking original state.
The ladder at the end of the drawers is great for hanging scarves and handbags. Although these are yet to go online, we sell them at MintSix so please inquire for deets. The plant on top of an old Ikea Expedit unit, is happily housed in one of my all time favourite products, a rose gold Uashmama bag.
The bed linen is also from MintSix and is a pale grey stonewashed linen. I used the dark grey pillowcases for some contrast and it turns out that they work very well with the 'Long Road' Wall Decal. Bonus. These are available in two sizes, check out the MintSix website to view this decal and some of our other options.
I've long been a fan of wall lights, these ones in particular. We don't have a huge amount of space on either side of the bed so wall lights were an ideal choice, leaving a little more space on the bedside tables. These particular lights are a reproduction based on the AJ wall light, designed by Arne Jacobsen.
I'm pretty happy with the view from my side of the bed, although it's not making it easy to get out in the morning....
All in all, I'm pretty happy in my new bedroom environment. Nothing stays the same for too long around here (the nature of my job) so I'll keep you updated with any tweaks or changes. Follow me on Instagram for daily snaps of my home + store. Instagram
