Before we moved to our new house I was desperately hankering for new bedroom furniture. I knew that would be a mistake when we were planning to move and I was right – we bought a house with a bigger master bedroom, offering much greater opportunities for different furniture layouts.
We toyed with the idea of fitted furniture but I know how I like to move things around so we decided to go for freestanding painted wood furniture – something really great quality that would stand the test of time.
I was so pleased when I found The Cotswold Company and was spoilt for choice with their beautiful furniture styles. I was back and forth between grey, cream and white but thankfully The Cotswold Company sent us wood samples in the different paint colours so I could try it against our carpets and the lighting to make the final choice.
I decided that although I loved all the grey options, that white was such a classic it would fit into any room if we ever decided to have a shuffle. With our bedroom being north facing, I also wanted something that would be fresh and light and provide a contrast to a dark wall.
We chose the Chantilly White furniture with a quad wardrobe (bags of storage!), bedside tables and a tall chest of drawers. The furniture was great value for money but is also amazing quality – really sturdy and will last us for years and years.
Already the room felt refreshed – so bright and airy and I’m in love with our new furniture. I was absolutely delighted when The Cotswold Company kindly sent me a beautiful tall mirror and a lamp to complete our bedroom refurbishment.
I had searched high and low for the perfect mirror but nothing was the right size or colour…until I found this! The Edna mirror is pewter in colour and matches perfectly with the handles on the Chantilly furniture. We were going to hang the mirror on the wall but we’ve decided we like it as a leaner mirror. I especially love how it reflects our dark grey wall and catches your eye as soon as you walk in the room. Not only does it help the light bounce around the room, it also adds a real depth – like a piece of art!
The lovely Floyd glass table lamp with champagne shade was the final finishing touch to the room. It’s a real statement piece but also ties together all the colours in the room – creams and silvers. It’s beautiful when lit at night and makes the room feel so cosy. Again, the quality is fantastic – the lamp stands so well and sets the room off beautifully.
Our bedroom is now a relaxed, organised and welcoming haven. After a busy day at work I love nothing more than relaxing in this room. I still can’t get enough of The Cotswold Company products – such beautiful quality but practical too. Everyone that has visited our new house has commented on the “gorgeous furniture” – although I doubt they would be able to escape out of the door with a quad wardrobe under their arm!
A final note about The Cotswold Company – as well as beautiful products, their customer service is exceptional. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, efficient and organised communication and fast turn around delivery on stock items. We will be certain to add more Cotswold Company products to the house as our renovations progress!
