Choose 2 or 3 pictures you really like the look of on-line. try and analyse what it is that you really like ( natural tones and materials, fresh and light look etc) then try and decide what the key items are that work for that look.
Then look in Wilkinsons. Matalan and Dunelm Mill for similar items that are fairly inexpensive!
Alternatively choose a curtain fabric you really like and that goes with the white/jasmine white. Dunelm have loads of fabric and readymades. Go and have a browse if you live near one!
Then build up accessories that work with the curtains!
Plain white bed linen. A throw at the bottom.of the bed. For an even more grown up look fold a thick cotton or satin thicker throw on the bottom of the bed and then a soft woolen throw folded on top of that.
Matching bedside lamps.
Small square cushions, better still and smaller square one infront of a larger square on in each side.
Buy a big wicker hamper (Matalan have a set of two large sturdy ones that sit nicely on top of one another for £40), to stash bed linen etc.
Educatingarti, I've been looking at photos on various websites but get stuck with what to do next, so thnks for your tips about what to do next.
GoldPlatedNineDoors, do you think white is the way to go? Our headboard, is actually white and I wasn't sure about it being of white, if that makes sense? Also what colour for the throws and cushions? Wuld you match the colour of those? I quite like teal and taupe, but DP isn't so keen, so would you recommend any particular ones? Also do I need to do different textures for the cushions?
And are the wicker baskets for storing bedding, or for putting all the stuff on the bed overnight? Thanks for your help. That's just what I need, some instructions I can follow.
I have been looking at some bright striped duvet covers from ikea, but not sure if they might be less calming.
