Ah, Valentine’s Day. Surely a day in the calendar that’s only important for 15-year-olds, anyone who chose to get married then (this includes my in-laws) and US! Valentine’s Day will always be associated with happiness in our household (forget the romance) because it’s the day in 2014 when we got the call from our solicitor to say that we were home-owners and hotfooted it to the estate agents to pick up the keys and a bottle of champagne.
Aside from that, I’m not the most romantic person in the world in a traditional sense – Pete is great at grand gestures and thoughtful gifts so I feel very lucky but sadly for him my romantic side stretches to offering to do the hoovering 😉
When Ocean Loans got in touch asking if I’d like to bring Valentine’s into my home with a little help from Dunelm, I thought it could be the perfect opportunity to show a little romance and so we set off to our nearest store which recently opened just up the road in Catford.
We were both so impressed with just how much Dunelm had to offer and at such reasonable prices too, it would be incredibly easy to kit out an entire house through them.
We decided to pick up a few bits for our bedroom to give it a fresh look. The best thing about our bedroom is that it’s lovely and airy in a loft conversion but we would like to renovate it one day since currently the only space for the bed is under the eaves, plus it needs a new floor and redecoration.
However a few little touches can make all the difference and we chose this pretty reversible bedding, a vintage-style script Parisian design. The soft grey and cream colour oozes romance as well as reference to Paris, the city of love. We also became one of “those” couples that ends up with extra cushions on their bed purely for decoration because I couldn’t resist.
The bedding really does look so pretty and although we won’t be keeping the blue walls forever, it goes really well with them for now.
We couldn’t resist adding a few extra accessories to our basket to cheer up my chest of drawers and keep up with the Valentine’s Day theme – a little pair of ceramic lovebirds, a hanging wicker heart and an Egyptian cotton fragrance diffuser. We’re now totally ready to celebrate two years in our home when the day arrives with our newly romantic boudoir.
