Interiors: Cosy Country Bedrooms.

Friday, January 24, 2014
Firstly before I start talking about country style bedrooms, I thought I'd tell you a but about my style. As I have Jessalli, most of my customers think my house is full of beautiful vintage girly prints and country style checks, but I can categorically say this isn't the case for 2 reasons;

One, I live with my boyfriend, who hates anything remotely feminine
Two, I seem to have a different mind set to when I'm decorating my house to when I'm creating in the shop.

My house is a mix of modern and cosy comforts, which I will be sharing with you in the 'Interiors' posts on my blog. My style is a mix of country wood and industrial metals, which sounds odd but I hope I can show you more about this as we go along in future posts.

Right lets get to it, Cosy country bedrooms. All the pictures I'm about to show you are from my boards on Pinterest, follow my boards here:

This first picture is a dream to me, high ceilings, a mix of modern white and cosy country wood. Tonal colours and a really rustic look. The beams and flooring in this room are exactly what I'd want in a country bedroom. The white paint gives it space and light which you'd need with all the woody colours.

This next picture is a real luxury looking room. With that amazing fireplace in the centre of the room. Again woody beams, white walls, but this time with more classic furniture and shabby chic details. 

I love the brick wall in this bedroom, and love the vintage furniture and details! The hint of white around the top of this wall makes it not seem so heavy, and the chandelier is just a huge feature to the room! This could work with old brick wallpaper, just make sure its not to much of a repeat pattern, odd and misshaped bricks looks way more high end!

I couldn't do a blog post with out a little promoting :P.....

Dorset Cushions are great additions to any country style home, It's obviously more apt if you live in Dorset, but in a spot print fabric like this- they look great on the bed!

You can't have a country theme without some wildlife, and the Pheasant is a great example. A Pheasant silhouette cushion would look great in a really tonal country bedroom, especially in this grey spot fabric.

 There's a few more pictures on my Pinterest board: 
 Thank you for reading and I hope you find loads of inspiring ideas for your bedrooms!

A New Years Resolution.....

Right I really don't know if I'll be able to stick to this but I will give it a go. I've been looking for a hobby to do outside of the business- and it's hard! The things I love to do most are Sewing, Designing and Drawing. Three things I do everyday at work!!

So I thought why find a hobby outside of the shop, when I can add to it. SO I have decided that this blog is now a hobby! :P I do not do it enough as when I'm in the shop, I'm usually sewing, doing boring paperwork or updating the website.

I used to blog ALL THE TIME before I had Jessalli, about fashion and things, so I know I love doing it when I get into it.

I am also going to do more Videos on my Jessalli YouTube Channel , things like interior ideas in my own home, quick fixes, new products in situe etc etc. Maybe even some crafty things!

I hope you'll come along and follow what I'm doing, and I also hope you'll all give me some encouragement to do it more and more!

Wish me luck! And thanks for reading!
