I know it's still festival season and kids haven't gone back to school yet but Autumn is approaching and the nights are starting to draw in a little earlier. I'll be heading out on my camping trips and days at the seaside less often and spending more time at home over the next few months so I want to get it looking and feeling just right.
I've been in the house for over a year now and it is much more homely than when I moved in. I've added a lot of feminine touches to the bachelor pad I moved into and it feels a lot more 'me'. It's the first time I've ever really moved out of home apart from my student days so I didn't have much furniture to take with me. I've picked up a few bits and bobs in Ikea and charity shops because I'm on a budget and because my room looked very bare when I initially moved in.
As you can see I've managed to fill my room and now have a place to store some of my books and put my cup of tea on when I'm reading in bed. I'm trying to pick up bits of furniture when I can so I have some of my own things when I eventually buy a house as my current house came furnished.
I still don't have a wardrobe as they can be a pretty expensive investment so I'm making do with a rail at the moment and a £20 charity shop dressing table. George at Asda have asked bloggers to think about how they would transform a room for Autumn (check out other posts using the #TransfAutumn on twitter) and I would do that by investing in some nice white furniture which would help my make my room seem more calm, less cluttered and mean that I don't have to store things in boxes under my bed.
I'm loving the simple Baltic range which fits in with what I already have and the deep drawers will be great for my 1000s of pairs of tights and all my accessories. I don't mind filling my room with some budget saving second hand items but it would be lovely to have something new and that matches nicely with other items in my room.
