MY-oh-MY! Where do I even start?? How do I even begin to express the pleasure it has been to once again partner with such incredible brands on such an exciting project? So many weeks of planning, emails, proposals, selecting product and styling. So many hours of putting my heart and soul into something that I hope will not only make these brands proud, but offer you my readers something that will inspire you to create beautiful spaces in your own homes. (PLUS the incredible chance to WIN a Makeover like this!)
After the Ultimate Kids Bedroom Makeover, it became very clear that moms are really the ones who deserve a spoil of this magnitude. And so, it became my mission to find brands to join forces with me on a Master Bedroom Makeover Project that would see one woman’s dream become a reality!
And while there are so many amazing bespoke brands out there, it’s not as easy as one would think to find the perfect ones to work together on a collaboration of this nature. Ensuring we had all our basis covered, no duplicates and that we kept with the general style and theme proved to be some-what challenging at times. So considering I had to pick and choose based on a selection of products, I think it turned out pretty well. Considering I’m no styling/decor expert, I think we did ok and I that most of you will love what we came up with!
With 15 brands on board to help create this makeover, it’s certainly a prize of significant quality and value with some of the most awesome companies involved in showcasing their product!

As with the general theme of our home, we went with a Scandinavian-inspired bedroom that incorporated plenty of wood, different prints, beautiful pieces of furniture and some statement pieces that resonated with our general “vibe”. It’s a little bit more “grown-up and sophisticated” than the rest of our home, aiming to touch on a more mature and romantic note which I thought was nice given the intimate and calm atmosphere one would aim to achieve in a bedroom space.
The colours are predominantly grey, black and white, but with lots of warm neutrals coming through in the parquet flooring, picture frames, lights and shelves, as well as the beautiful server from Eco Furniture Designs which really deserves its own mention altogether! I have such a love-affair going on with wood and I like that different shades can be used in one area. Gone are the days where matching wood colour perfectly for every feature was a prerequisite for styling a room. (In my mind anyway) Now days, different shades of wood can be incorporated all over a room, so long as you stick to a few and use them well. My favourite shades are the warm tones you find in Blackwood and Kiaat combined with lighter shades of Birchwood, which help keep things fresh and light.
So FINALLY, here they are some of pictures from our Styled-Shoot which are bound to get you drooling! All images are courtesy of Angi Whittle Photography. ♥
