Lifestyle | Moroccan Inspired Bedroom Transformation.

Just before we moved house I put together a blog post detailing my dream Moroccan inspired bedroom. I love this style of interior design & already had a few items collected however because of the move it's spurred us on to go the whole hog and totally transform our new bedroom. 
If you have a nosey at the previous post you'll notice that we did go a tad off spec from what we had originally planned, but here's our finished room.







The biggest difference we made to the room was to change the walls, we opted for a feature wall of Sandersons' Srinigar wallpaper in Bengal red and the other two with Valspars' matching paint. By not having a neutral wall the room feels much warmer and cosier - Some might say it makes the room look smaller, but we get away with it having mirrored wardrobe doors - And who doesn't want a cosy bedroom? We picked up the bedspread in Asda for a pretty affordable price, and because it's a block colour we added the elephant print throw to add a bit more interest to the room and tie everything together. We bought the throw on our last trip to London from Camden Markets. Camden is an absolute hive for pieces like this, if I remember right we got this for £10 which was a blooming bargain. We've accessoried with Moroccan inspired trinkets which we've managed to pick up over the last year or so. My favourite piece is the elephant artwork because I think this brings everything together & makes the room complete.






We're so happy with how the room has turned out & knowing that we've done it ourselves (the lame first time diyers that we are) makes it feel that bit more special. The room feels so homely and cosy. I absolutely love what we've achieved with the space, it's perfect!

What do you think to our transformation? Would you like to see more interior design posts on my blog?

Lots of love | xclaireabella.

  3. Great job, well done! It always feels great when you're able to achieve your vision. I was so happy with the way our bedroom turned out when we renovated a few years ago. A fantastic feeling! Hope you enjoy it for many years to come!

    1. Thank you! We got ours in Camden Market & it was one of those right place right time type moments. I haven't seen anything similar elsewhere that isn't like four times the price. It's crazy. X
