Mission Accepted: Transforming Our Bedroom Challenge

Our bedroom needs a bit of a sprucing up, it’s lacking a theme, well its also lacking flooring but I am not one to pick at details!  We have little to spend though so I am hoping by updating the duvet covers and cushions it will transform the space.  Dressing the bed is often overlooked but very important giving the bedroom style and sophistication that cannot be achieved with the furniture choice alone.  Obviously getting the flooring laid will also improve matters no end but for now I cannot afford another bulk laminate order and its cheaper to focus on the bedding.

I was keen to be involved in this challenge by the Yorkshire Linen Co. as we are currently using white bedding and combined with the magnolia walls its all a bit dull really.  Yes its fresh apparently (modern, contemporary, minimalist, basically whatever the IN word is these days!), but its not got depth of colours I crave.  With Christmas on the way I thought something red would be festive and then I saw this bedding with the little hearts and thought I had found my ideal match for the time of the season and my quest to have a theme. 

Hubbie and I need to reconnect and what better way than making our bedroom a more warm and welcoming retreat.  Too much white can be clinical; I want something comforting this winter and red is always a bold colour choice, one that will not blend into the background.  Feeling rather fanciful I have gone for a sheet with hearts on too hopefully with all the hearts around us it’s sure to give our marriage a boost of LOVE and affection.  Any tired frazzled parents of grumpy kids can probably relate…



However being your average mum I feel mean just focusing on our bedroom though, the Yorkshire Linen Co. have so many lovely items for children too.  For eldest I love the dinosaur theme, he has been more enthusiastic about them since watching Jurassic World recently.  Even though the dinosaur looks quite ferocious he will still sleep soundly, he actually relates more with the dinosaurs than the humans and was quite upset when they were in danger.

Youngest is superhero mad, so this bright and colourful set will be just the thing for him.  He will dream about action packed adventures and rescuing pretty damsels in distress from evil villains.
