Warm up your interiors this winter with @OhEightOhNine ’s guide to seasonal guest room redecorating below.

 

Hello hello,

I cannot believe we’re in April already. Whattt!? It was Christmas literally yesterday right? Anyway I am a total autumn girl so I am really looking forward to the seasonal changes. I love the cooler weather, the colours, the fashion, the interior trends and the nature so much more than summer or winter. Today, I’m going to show you how I have redecorated our guest bedroom with some gorgeous AW17 inspired product from Bankstown Central.

 

As you can probably tell I am a bit linen crazy! It is such a good way to freshen up a room and introduce a new colour palette. I wanted to go with something a little warmer this season, so I chose some new bedding that consists of creams, mushroom and a dull pink. Mustard is amazing in children’s interior but I much prefer something softer in an adult’s room. Below are the items I picked up from Bankstown Central  last week.

  1. Jumbo cable knit, marshmellow || Myer || Available In Store
  2. Picardy knitted cushion, stone || Target || Shop Here
  3. Linen cotton quilt cover set, Linen || Target || Shop Here
  4. VUE Hayley throw, cameo rose || Myer || Shop Here

As you can see from the list above I chose pieces from a range of stores and in varying price points. Some are budget friendly while others are more expensive. I like to shop this way because it makes buying seasonally more achievable and it keeps my hubby (and bank account) somewhat happy.

Décor is another aspect of a room that I like to change up every now and then. I always style my bedside tables to compliment the linen, so in this case I have used some warm earthy tones and a clay vase to add a bit of texture. Wood, handmade porcelain and clay homewares are a personal favourite at the moment. They give a little more life to the surrounding space in comparison to a flat surfaced vase and they work back with the raw materials of the linen perfectly. Below are the décor items I picked up from Bankstown Central last week.

 

  1. 50 x 70cm timber frames || Kmart || Shop Here
  2. Sand clay planter || Myer || Shop Here
  3. Kingston small bowl || Myer || Available In Store

Last of all, don’t forget to add some greenery or floral into your room styling. Having either a plant or a small posy of flowers on one bedside table will help freshen up the room and bring some nature into the space. If you’re not too much of a green thumb, try buying a rubber plant. They look great and have hardwearing dark green/burgundy foliage. As for flowers, I adore the soft, fluffy texture of hydrangeas. Well I hope this has inspired you to get your styling cap on and create a warm, cosy bedroom for the cooler months approaching. Have a lovely week!Much love,
