My home captured by karin: bedroom

Monday, 30 September 2013

I hope you had a lovely weekend? I loved all your comments here and on Facebook about where you'd transport your house for the weekend! I stayed right here at home this weekend so I thought it'd be apt to show the second part in my mini series: my 'My home captured by Karin'. This is my bedroom. We've only recently moved up stairs to the top floor (from this room) and I am so happy we did. I love the high ceiling, floor to ceiling windows and balcony, it all feels so bright and airy.

So many pieces I'm not sure where to start on the 'I spy' front! Chinese stools: Lovely & Company, Gold bedside table lamp: vintage, Wall light: Hay, knitted throw and linen bedding: H&M Home, Peacock chair: flee market find, Book shelves: DIY by my husband, plant, plant pot and pendant light: IKEA. Picture behind bed side table: Muuto designed by All The Way To Paris.

My bedroom is not really finished, the next step is a lovely new rug to keep us toasty this Autumn / Winter. Any tips?

PS If you're up for a great give-away today, enter here to win a fab Lee Broom Crystal Table Lamp (hurry, you need to enter by midnight tonight!). I don't know why I'm telling you, I'm hoping to win it myself!!

Have a lovely Monday!

  3. What a beautiful sanctuary you've created! I am currently on the hunt for flax linen myself. I am concerned though that h&m home's linen is about a third of the cost of miss Molly, Sheridan or even home republic.. So I must ask.. Is it luxuriously soft? Does it get better with washing it? And is it good quality? The site lists it as 100% linen, but makes no mention of flax. Also, where is your amazing bed spread from? (I am assuming that's not the quilt cover we can see..) thank you for sharing your gorgeous home :D x

    1. Hi Angel, Thank you! Interesting question about the H&M home linen... I haven't really had the linen long enough to say whether it softens up or not...I'll keep you posted. The white bed cover was a present from a friend and the grey knitted one was also from H&M Home. I can also recommend knitted throws from Tjockt - my wonderful Finnish sponsor (you can also buy giant size wooden knitting needles and beautiful wool from them too if you feel like a project ;). (discount code SCHOME). Thank you for taking the time to comment! x

My partner has more than I can count in the fernery hah. Thanks again for yet another beautiful post! x

  5. So restful looking! We are experimenting with Flor carpet tiles in our new space right now for area rugs. It is such fun putting the designs together.

  12. Oh wow your bedroom is gorgeous! I really love the bed light!
    The other day I saw a peacock chair at a thrift store but I couldn't take it with me on my bike. It still hurts a bit thinking about it. Good to see yours is where it needs to be.

  19. I love the retro wire-lamp and.... 'kimono'-robes. I've been wondering: what is a better place for a library? a bedroom or a living room? Afer reading your post I've made my decision: a bedroom is the best place for it.

  20. Just reading about it and seeing the first pictures of your bedroom makes me want to live there already. Haha. A bedroom is a person’s personal space, where he can be himself, and I think space is always important. I loved how you have high ceilings and minimalistic interior décor. I also find the bed to be a nice way to finish the overall look of your bedroom.
