Homely One House Tour – Bedrooms and Study

Thank you for all your kind birthday wishes on Friday. I had a lovely relaxing day, received some really beautiful gifts and had a nice time celebrating at night.

To avoid boring you and drawing out my Homely One House Tour too much longer, I’ve decided to group together several rooms. Today I thought I’d share a few photos of our bedrooms.

Our house has four bedrooms – our room, Grace’s, a spare room and one which we’ve made into a study. New carpet and new white skirtings are on our future list of plans for these rooms (we thought we’d hold off until Grace gets a bit bigger). In our study, we are going to paint the windowsill and built-in wardrobe door white as we did in the other bedrooms to brighten it up a bit. Here’s some photos of these rooms - I’ll post some shots of Grace’s room later on in the week in a separate post to show you the changes I’ve made in the nursery lately and I won’t show you our spare room yet because at the moment, it looks as though a bomb has gone off in there (it’s become my dumping room lately).


  1. Oh Amanda, I'm sorry, I didn't take in much else except what a gorgeous little munchkin you have there! She is too cute!
    Seriously, you've done a great job and I think white skirtings are a great idea - it makes things feel much more contemporary and fresh.

  2. I second Kerri - Grace is so cute :)

    Wow your study is so organised - mine is a bit like your spare bedroom, I suspect!

  3. How cute is little Miss Grace!! Loving the colours of your bedroom Amanda! Your canvas is so gorgeous and looks so lovely with your dark furniture. Lucky you to have a study and such a lovely one at that!! As for the spare room - aren't they supposed to be messy? Wish we had one:) Thanks for sharing more of your beautiful home and I am so happy to hear you had a wonderful birthday :) ~ Tina xx

  4. Your home is so bright and fresh and tidy! How do you manage it with a little baby on the loose?! I look forward to the next installment of your home tour

  6. Hi AManda, how nice to have 4 rooms! You are sooo tidy - you would totally be disgusted if you saw my bedroom!! I am very impressed by what looks like total organisation! xx

    The chair in the study looks fab with the cushions and pictures, great colours.
