Design My Spare Bedroom

This week I need YOUR help in choosing a design for my spare bedroom & I’d like you to help me decide which of 3 looks to go for.


Over the next week (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) I’ll be posting 3 different schemes with potential products, paint colours & so on. On Friday, a voting poll will begin for you guys to tell me which one you’d like to see me go on to create which will close on Sunday (25th Sept) at 8pm with the winning design being announced on Monday 26th.

To give you an idea on the room, here’s a few pictures of it currently –

Many of you will recognise it as Rory’s old room which has been sat empty (or with students in!) since April when we moved him into his new bedroom. The walls are still white, the striped wallpaper is still on the wall & it’s been untouched…up until now.

This room is going to be used for guests to stay, but I’m undecided between a single bed with trundle to become a double/2 singles, OR a ‘small double’ 4’6 bed. The space is limited. Guests will include friends & family but also foreign students next year. 

If you fancy yourself as a budding interior designer & would like to put together something that you think I’d like then I’d absolutely love to hear your thoughts & put suitable entrees forward to be voted for by my readers so email me on [email protected].

I will then set to work to decorate & style a beautiful new bedroom based on what you’d like to see!
All of the voters for the winning design will be put forward for a random drawer to win a Jo Malone 200g candle in a fragrence of your choice as a little thank you.
Love, Charlotte x

    I def think a trundle bed, maybe one of the idea day bed types so it can be used as a seating area when you don't have guests.

    That's true – I thought they sold a white metal ornate one but can't seem to find it on the website so will keep looking 🙂 x
