My Dream Bedroom

Posted on


When I was in junior school, I was asked to draw a picture of my favourite place in the world. I drew my bed.

I have always loved my bedroom, if everyone else is out for the evening I won't snuggle up on the sofa, I always climb into bed and read, work or sleep. My bedroom therefore has to be a haven of opulence, serenity with a little sassy thrown in. Unfortunately with two small children it is a little less serene and a little more second grade with baby wipes adorning my bedside cabinet rather than gorgeous table lamps.

So when I saw that Debenhams have a fabulous competition  where you select a range of products to create your perfect bedroom from their website and then combine them to create a mood board, I thought it was a great chance to indulge myself. The only restriction is that you have to do it within a budget of £5000. The winner, chosen by judges from Mammasaurus and Love Chic Living, will receive a amazing £500 worth of Debenhams vouchers to spend on anything they like! Sounded like a challenge to me.

So if I take the influence of two small children out of the equation and am let loose with what I want on my bedside table, then this is what it would be:

My Dream Bedroom

  • Accent table - £252
  • Bed frame - £800
  • Head board £230
  • Debenhams Cotton 'Oxford' two drawer bedside chest- £176
  • Table lamp - £198
  • Gray throw pillow - £25
  • Grey 'Mayfair' bed linen - £88
  • We Love Cushions We Love Cushions' Pets Rock Breakfast Cat Cushion 48 - £35

The room would have aubegine accents (my mom would say purple) and as our cat likes to sleep on our bed so much, I thought the cat cushion would either give her some company (or competition).

I love the delicate etched glass table lamps and a proper dressing table but the thing I love the most is the ottomon style bed. The reason? I can stash away all my shoes under that bed and no one will ever know how many I own ..... ssshhhhh!

So out of my £5000 budget, I only spent just over £2000 which in my eyes means that I have more money to spend on shoes!


This is my entry into the Debenhams Dream Bedroom Competition.
