For the past couple of years the main bedroom has been decorated in a shabby chic style which I loved but I think I've got bored of it if I'm honest! I want something more sophisticated and less girly. Right now I am loving all things monochrome and scandinavian which are both becoming ever so popular at the moment and I have been a huge fan for the past year or so. I have been playing with the idea of re-doing the bedroom for around a year now but haven't got round to doing it as I need to paint it white first which I was too lazy to do.

The walls are currently cream which do look okay but if I want the monochrome decor to work I need to go lighter! So this week I plan to start by painting the bedroom walls and then I can get to work with the rest of the room. I need to buy a new bed as much as love it, it's just too big!!! I know, how can a bed ever be too big but seriously it's just too big for the room and the mattress is really thick so I've been looking at buying a double bed with a standard size mattress instead. 

I'm thinking of a photo wall above the bed although I'm not entirely sure yet, perhaps an ikea picture ledge along with a few prints and wall decorations? I think the canopy I currently have is a bit too girly for my liking. I need to find some curtains to go with the room, I always find curtains to be the most difficult decision simply because they need to go with the furniture and decor. I currently have beige/cream curtains which I don't really like but I needed something with blackout lining which was light. I'm thinking perhaps a pair of black or white voile curtains would do and would look ok once the walls are painted white? 

I've put together a few bits I've been lusting over recently and have all been added to my wish-list to buy over the next couple of months. Luckily I don't really need to buy too much to transform the room and won't be changing the furniture apart from the bedside tables if I do decide to change them. 

I am also currently creating a little office space in one corner of the room which I'll be finishing once I have painted. I can't wait to show you the overall look!

What do you think of my plans for the main bedroom? What type of decor do you have in your bedroom? I'd love to know!
