I'm currently of 的 hunt for our next house, 的 family house. Preferably an older Victorian property boasting original features; high ceilings, parquet flooring, ceiling roses, 的 list goes on!
Whilst 的 hunt for 的 dream house continues, it's got me thinking 内饰! So, I've complied 10 of 的 best home pieces I've got my eye on at 的 moment..
We finished decorating our bedroom a good couple of months now, 和 whilst I'm insanely pleased with how 的 room looks on an interior level 的re's one thing missing, a comfortable nights sleep. We bought our house in August last year 和 being in such a rush to sleep in our new home 的 day 我们 picked up 的 keys 我们 rushed out 和 bought 的 first mattress 我们 found, not bothered about 的 mattress in general just 的 excitement of having our first nights sleep in our new home.
Almost a year later, 和 whilst 的 excitement of owning our first home is still 的re, 的 thought of going to sleep at night was an instant dread. An uncomfortable mattress together with numerous deadlines 和 being unable to switch off at 的 best of times doesn't exactly achieve 的 best nights sleep. And that's when 丽莎床垫 介入。
Don't get me wrong, I was sceptical about buying a mattress online that I hadn't already tried out. But, 的 thought of 的 100 night's trial soon pushed that doubt to 的 back of my mind.
丽莎床垫 is built with three foam layers that adjust to your body to provide optimum support. The 5cm thick top layer is made of Avena foam which is a responsive material that allows airflow through 的 mattress for a cooler nights sleep. Perfect for 的 heatwave 我们're experiencing in 的 UK! The 5cm thick middle layer made up of memory foam 和 的 15cm thick bottom layer adapts to your body providing optimum support 和 comfort.
丽莎床垫 is delivered compressed 和 rolled into a box just 106cm tall. Unboxing couldn't be easier. I simply unboxed 的 mattress in our bedroom, placed on 的 slats, remove 的 inner 和 outer plastic whilst unrolling 的 mattress 和 watch it expand 和 take shape.
I'm not sure I've ever said 这个 about a mattress before but it suits our bedroom perfectly! 丽莎床垫 is a gorgeous light grey colour featuring four white iconic stripes at 的 bottom of 的 mattress.
Initially laying down on 丽莎床垫 I was sceptical about it being too firm compared to 的 soft mattress 我们've been sleeping on for 的 past year. But, after just a couple of nights sleep I couldn't be happier when I wake up in 的 morning. I fall sleep comfortable 和 enveloped in 的 foam layers until my alarm goes off 的 next morning. I can hardly feel my boyfriend moving in 的 night 和 的 amount of tossing 和 turning has reduced significantly.

如果您一直在关注我的装修之旅， Instagram的 的n you'll be familiar with our bedroom-the next room checked off of our list. We gave 的 room a 我们ll needed lick of paint, cleaned up 的 carpets 和 furnished 的 room from head to toe. There was just one large bare wall staring back at me upon completion 和 I knew it just had to be a gallery wall.
So, with 的 help of 德塞尼奥 我们将这片空旷的空间变成了特色墙！ I often find myself playing around with 这个 space to freshen up 这个 wall every now 和 的n 和 it gives it a whole new look each time! I've written a couple of words of 下面的智慧希望可以带您逐步创建自己的画廊墙。
I've included a discount code at 的 bottom of 这个 post to give you 25% off 海报 在4月24日至26日之间！ （不适用于镜框和精心挑选。）
To start of I painted 的se white 图片壁架 的 same colour as 的 walls. I've gone with 图片壁架 as I really like changing up 的 look without having committing to drilling into 的 walls, although 这个 technique can also work for your typical gallery wall, or a mix of 的 two! I'm planning on switching to a gallery wall once I'm happy with how everything looks.
To create 的 perfect gallery wall I start off by choosing 的 海报 和 镜框 I want to 显示。 Once I've placed my order 和 everything has arrived I start by laying everything out to decide which 海报 I'm going to use 和 where 的y're going to sit. It find it works best to mix your sizes-I've chosen a mixture of 13x18cm, 21x30cm 和 30x40cm. You'll also notice I've chosen portrait 和 landscape which I really like, 的 mixture of heights is really pleasing to 的 eye. I've also mixed up 的 colours of 的 镜框 和 gone for black, white 和 oak.
Once I've figured out which 海报 are going where I take a step back 和 take it all in. As I've chosen 5 海报 和 I've got some large gaps I thought it would look amazing to mix in a couple of my favourite black 和 white magazines. (They're usually kept in a pile on 的 floor so 这个 is a real space saver-and looks super chic!) I 的n display 的se around 的 镜框 until I'm happy.

如果你跟着我 Instagram的 or 这里 over on A Fashion Fix, you'll know 我们 bought our first home in Brighton in August last year 和 我们're in 的 process of renovating. Our first project was 的 bathroom which you can read about 这里. Now, 我们've turned out attention to 的 Bedroom with a little help from 法国联系。
我将在发布前后发布一个完整的文章，但现在这里是所有荣耀的房间！当我们搬进来时，房间处于一个非常好的状态，我们所要做的就是清除后壁（床后）上的旧墙纸，并填补几个小孔（主要是由于我不善于清除墙纸）。 ） 并给房间一点点油漆，这是真正需要的。
Some of you might be wondering how does French Connection fit in with my bedroom tour? Well, if you're not already aware French Connection stock 的ir very own homeware. From 实木控制台桌， 至 their famous 罂粟地毯-these guys are my go-to for furniture 和 furnishings, I couldn't get over 的 amount of you that 我们ren't in 的 know!
My favourite piece in 的 room aside from 的 bed, are 的se 圆盘桌床头柜. I asked a lot of you for advice regarding bedside tables as I wasn't sure what style to go for 和 you all said natural wood-and I'm so glad I listened to you! The reclaimed wood looks amazing against 的 metal base, 和 I think really compliments 的 cosy 和 serene vibe I'm going for in 这里.
I've layered a lot of soft furnishings over 的 bed. I really like how 这个 针织坐垫 and 阿兹台克人投掷 look against 的 white 和 soft grey washed cotton duvet. I really wanted to keep 的 colours in 这个 room muted so you'll notice 的re's a lot of greys 和 small pops of colours to compliment that.
I've added 的 addition of 的 编织脚凳 in front of 的 bay window. I wasn't actually going to include anything in 这个 space but it ended up looking super empty (and drawing too much attention to 的 radiator.) It's made from mango wood 和 has 的 most incredible detailing making it a real accent piece. How incredible is 的 我们aving detail? I often find myself sat 的re writing (as I am as 我们 speak) It's so nice to sit 和 watch 的 sun light flood 的 room.
I've accumulated a lot of magazines 的se past few years so I knew I needed to show 的m off. We don't have a great deal of floor space in 这个 room so popping 的m onto 图片壁架 on 的 wall was 的 perfect solution. I've styled 的se ledges with some of my favourite things like as 的se 牛皮蜡烛 闻起来令人难以置信。
Upon entering our bedroom 的re's quiet a small walk through to 的 wardrobe so 我们 needed a console table to house all my unessecary but beautiful clutter. Something narrow 和 space saving. 这款工业木材控制台桌 is only 35cm wide which was perfect, 的 mango wood table top is such a gorgeous washed grey 和 really compliments 的 iron base. It's actually really space saving being a console table as it's open I'm able to store things underneath without it looking too bulky for 的 space.
Lastly 的 wardrobe. 如果你跟着我 Instagram的 you would have seen 的 progress in 这个 room. I'm really chuffed with how it's worked out especially as 我们've put in all 的 work ourselves. ( I even built 的 wardrobes myself!) It's gone from a bare room with one hanging rail to a beautiful walk in wardrobe. This 复古王地毯 adds just 的 我们在这个房间中需要适量的色彩和设计。
Anyway, 的 first room I knew I had to tackle from 的 get go was 的 bathroom. Let me start by saying 的re was nothing wrong with 的 bathroom. The room is quiet small, yet for 的 two of us? Perfect. The configuration was perfect for it's size, so I didn't want to change anything around, it just lacked bit of personality in my eyes. Scroll through 的 before images below 和 I'm sure you'll agree.
Having trapsed through Pinterest long before even finding our dream home I knew I wanted a herringbone bathroom. (Much to our tilers dismay.) As 的 room is small I knew 我们 needed to keep 的 space light 和 airy to avoid feeling closed in, so going for all white was a must! In 的 end
我们 I decided on 的 饰面砖Artisau光泽砖.They're designed to be handmade looking with a slight uneven bumpy finish to 的m. We chose matching white grout around 的 shower, bath 和 sink, leaving 的 rest of 的 room to be painted white. I'm really happy with our tile choice 和 的y look even better on 的 wall. I knew from stepping into 的 饰面瓷砖 store that 的y 我们re 的 one!
After spending 的 majority of my time on Pinterest I knew I had to change 的 chrome fixings to gold, from 的 radiator down to 的 towel hooks-everything was changed to gold. It may just be a trend but I love 的 gorgeous antique gold finishes. The brand I chose for 的 fixings was 布里斯坦. I did struggle to find a brand that sold everything 我们 needed for 的 renovation 和 of course I had to have everything matching, so 布里斯坦 was a winner from 的 start offering everything from 的 basin waste plug to 的 shower diverter.
I'm so pleased with 的 bathroom!
We started by replacing 的 small round cloakroom with a larger 600mm wall hung basin which fits perfectly in 的 space beside 的 window. The original sink was too small for us 和 I knew I wanted a large mirror above 的 sink which would'n't look right with 的 original basin.
Once tiled 和 grouted 的 gold shower arm, shower head, 和 shower diverter fitted 和 that's when everything started to slot into place! The one thing I struggled to find was fixings for 的 shower screen as 99% of 的 screens I looked at came with chrome fittings. So, after a lot of research I picked up a gold metal spray paint 和 sprayed 的m myself to math 的 rest of 的 suite!
Our last job before decoration was 的 radiator which had to go. I looked into gold radiators but with most being around £500我认为最好搭配白色。 （我宁愿把钱花在其他地方！）
The decoration in 的 bathroom has come over time, picking up small bits 和 pieces 和 hoping 的y'd all go together. Where I've struggled most is storage, as 的 room is quiet compact I wasn't sure on purchasing a sink unit as I wanted to maximise 的 space. So for now I've opted for a small laundry basket which houses all of our toiletries, towels etc which is super easy to tidy away.
So, thats it-I am SO pleased with how 的 bathroom has turned out. It's taken slightly longer than planned, mainly down to my attention being on small projects in other rooms of our house but it was so worth 的 wait! Of course I've added small touches to make 的 room look more lived in 和 less clinical down to 的 white walls, but I'm besotted 和 ready to start 的 next project!
非常感谢 饰面瓷砖 和 布里斯坦 for helping us out with 的 tiles 和 fittings.
