Room Redesign!


As promised, (a while ago) here are a few snaps of my new(ish) room!
I'm absolutely loving it at the moment, as the white walls make it seem so much bigger, and everything just looks cleaner and more grown up.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I most of my furniture from Ikea's discount section (usually by the tills), and saved around about £200 in total! It's definitely worth having a look there, I managed to get everything I needed - a white double bed frame, a double mattress and white chest of drawers.
Along by the chest of drawers, there is also a white full length mirror. (Bit of a reoccurring theme going on here..)

I really do wish I'd taken 'before' pictures, but it was such an awkward layout to photograph, so perhaps it's for the best!
I don't have much else to say about it, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.






Pictures some out so much more 'true to life' with regards to colour, and the natural light pouring through the window is made even brighter by the white walls.

Not really of the room, but I thought it was too nice to miss out! :)

Thanks for reading, and I'd love to hear what you think down below! If you have any questions, pop them in a comment, or tweet me - @amyalaska :)

    1. Ah yes, they're so lovely! I accidentally bought a king sized cover, so I had to go out and buy a king sized duvet as well, to save another trip to Ikea! I'm not complaining though.. it's so warm! :) x

    1. Thank you! Yes, they look nice, but they can be a disaster if you knock them in the night, they make a huge sound if you touch them! x

  27. So nice. I like the black bunny paper weight (probably not actually a paper weight). Very random but I really think you could pull off a pixie cut with your face shape =)

    1. Ahhh yes it's actually a cotton wool holder, haha! You put little cotton wool balls into it and then have one poking out of the hole at the back to make a tail... a bit strange but I love it!
      And aw thank you! I'm not sure I could go short again as I'm still growing it back from last time, but I'll bear that in mind for the future when I get fed up with it again! ;) xx
