Home decorating inspiration from Pinterest

If you've ever been on pinterest, you'll know how addictive it is and once you start, you just can't stop.
I love looking up home decorating ideas, and although most of the rooms I find tend to be huge, it's nice to look at their colour schemes and accessories and then think about how you could adapt them into your own rooms. I thought as a change today i'd just share with you a few of my favourite ideas from pinterest for different rooms of the house! :)
Beautiful bedroom
Ethan Allen - Romance Bedroom

I love this bedroom. (If you click the link above it will take you to the Ethan Allen website to buy all the items!) You may or may not know that duck egg blue is my favourite colour ever, and I love creams and gold tones for interiors, so this is perfect to me! I love beds that have loads of pillows and cushions, a total pain when making the bed but they always just look so good! For some reason I also love armchairs and delicate chairs in the bedroom, not for any real purpose, it's just something that I like to be there! Any room looks better with a huge bunch of flowers, real or fake, they just make it better!

Centsational Girl » Blog Archive » Bunk Beds for a Girl

I actually can't find the link for this one! :( but isn't it pretty! If I ever had little girls I would definitely want to do their room like this! Whilst bunk beds are great for saving space, and most kids love them I'm not really a fan of how they look usually, but these are beautiful! I love the cream and soft pinks and the pillows and duvet just look so soft! I know you can't tell from a photo if something is soft, but in my mind it is, so I want it! ha :)


Cute kitchen
I don't know where this photo originated but you can see this along with similar designs on the Raising the bar blog :) I've visited the states quite a few times now, and as bad as it sounds, a meal is always more enjoyable in a booth! Especially one as pretty as this! They are a regular occurrence in the houses I've stayed in in Florida and I just think that they make a kitchen much more liveable and family friendly. This kitchen is cute whilst still being elegant, and I love it. The marble tops are beautiful. I'm not sure about the Perspex chairs I think i'd prefer some cream quilted stools to match the booth if I was doing it!
love the wood beam.
I found this kitchen here :) This is more of an traditional English kitchen than the last one. My friends have a table similar to this in their kitchen and it is wonky and bumpy and is just the best table! If you have exposed beams in any room of the house, you should definitely keep them! I have them going across the roof of my living room at the moment and they look so nice! It makes me so sad when people paint them or even worse cover them up! They just bring so much character! This kitchen also has an AGA oven which are just amazing, they are quite expensive to run as they are always on but because they are always on you can put food straight in with no waiting around, and they also heat up your whole kitchen, it makes the room so cosy! I miss having an AGA to cook with! Although it can be hard to control the temperature precisely so baking is interesting!
I think this post ended up being a bit of a long ramble so I'll probably leave it there for today! Do you like decorating inspiration posts like this? I might make some more for other rooms in the future! :)
What is your favourite thing to have in a kitchen or bedroom? Do you have any certain colour schemes that you always stick to?

    1. Thanks! :) I'll definitely pop on over to your blog! :) xxx

  3. The pictures in this blogpost are lovely! I'm a Pinterest-addict myself and love looking for room inspiration. Funny, duck egg blue is one of my favorite colors too! It's simple but beautiful :)
    Unfortunately my room never looks as tidy and put together as the ones in pinterest, but slowly i'm getting there ;)


    1. I loved them too! I use it all the time to look for inspiration, but my rooms are never that tidy either! I don't why but I just seem to accumulate so much stuff! Duck egg blue is so beautiful isn't it! I'm hoping that one day i'll become a 'proper adult' and my room will be all tidy and sophisticated like these ones! :P xxx

  4. Yes! I love Pinterest.

    I am always inspired by the clean, white look of all the appliances, and theme itself.

    Thank you for sharing! :)


    1. I am far too addicted to Pinterest! I must look through it almost every day on my phone if I get a break! Thanks for reading! :)
