There’s nothing like being part of your own personal credit crunch to put you in the mood for some serious online window shopping. When I moved in to my own flat I was so excited to make it all my own and put my own personal vibe on it, but due to lack of funds I never really got that far. Alas, it’s probably a good job I didn’t as my tastes have changed quite a lot in the past 2 years! I used to love a clean white and bright colour scheme with a splash of duck egg blue, and whilst I do still enjoy that kind of vibe I am becoming more and more drawn to a darker and more ‘gothic’ style. Now the nights are a little colder too, it always feels a bit warmer to be surrounded by darker shades – whether it’s a snuggly brown blanket or some amazing furniture and home accessories like I’ve featured above. The bed and oh-so-awesome dressing are from the Moulin Noir range which you can find online here from tradefurniturecompany.
The seat on the dressing table set is also completed with black velvet material on the seat and just looks so beautiful, like something from the set of a horror film or something. In a good way of course. I’ve always had a thing for antlers and this aluminium antler wall piece
is the dream, especially when you continue the ol’ macabre style through to those skull bookends
, although for that price I’m not sure if I would prefer them to be real skulls or made of some kind of precious metal! Another factor to take in to account when you’re renting is that you can’t really decorate the place to your personal tastes by painting the walls, so this kind of furniture would really compliment a plain white bedroom, especially if you finished the bedroom with a nice fluffy deep red rug, oh la la.
