The Bedroom Series - Modern Feminine and a little Eclectic

My friend and work colleague Chelsea is moving into a new share house and is looking to create a new and inviting bedroom space for herself. Living in share houses can be difficult if you like to decorate as you cant just go ahead and put your own stamp on shared areas. Also, its a rental, so you cannot paint, wallpaper or even hammer a nail into the wall!

After chatting with Chelsea, she highlighted some key pieces she would like incorporated into the space (and can I highlight, this is on a budget, which makes finding items super fun!!). So I set about finding a range of products and styles that could incorporate one or both of these key pieces!

The Ikea Malm Bed (around $289) and Replica Componibilis (around $85 up)

To incorporate the bed into a modern yet eclectic feminine space, I drew inspiration from this picture of Claudia Stephensons home, via Adore Magazine.

Here are my inspired and budget finds!

From top left:

Cushion covers in black and white trellis from Whitlock and Co ($84 for two)
Chevron Cushion cover from JCarterHandmade  ($25)
Leigh Viner 31 Rue print ($72 for a large size, simply frame in an ikea frame)
Nico Tray Table, currently on sale for only $39 at Freedom and Freedom vase only $29.
Faux Fur Throw by Home Replublic, on sale at Adairs for $89.95 
Freedom Rhodes Lamp base, $99. Just team with a black shade from Ikea or Target
Ikea furry rug 100cm x 100cm $99 
Voluspa Candle $55 from Kleins Perfumery

If my addition skills are correct, all up this room would cost around $600.  Add in the $289 Ikea bed that Chelsea wants to buy, and this room will come in at around $1000 (give or take a little for some cushion inserts, frame etc :))

I am excited to bring you some more inspired and budget bedroom spaces over the coming weeks :)
