I am about to buy a new bed for our home as the old one has served us well but we have decided it's time for an update. I've found the perfect one and in keeping with it's style, I've decided I'd like to redecorate our bedroom a little.

A bed is a big expense and I'm hoping this one will serve us well for many years to come! However, most of my budget has gone on it, and so I have turned to one of my favourite stores for affordable homewares, Matalan, to find some pieces to update our space without breaking the bank.

As we currently rent our home, I'm unable to really go mad and repaint or wallpaper the room. However, it's easy to put a stamp on a room without having to fork out for expensive equipment. A few well chosen pieces can really update the feel of a space and are also useful and practical if carefully selected. I am quite fickle and so cheaper accessories really bode well with me, as if I change my mind in a couple of months I can easily replace them!

My personal taste is quite eclectic but is rooted in a "shabby chic" style, tempered with lots of neutral colours and strong lines to stop things getting too "twee." I adore the rush baskets which are so useful for storage and will hopefully fit at the end of our bed to use as blanket boxes. A pair of these costs £50 and I've seen similar elsewhere for about 3 times the price so these really are very reasonable. 

The cream clock is really pretty and will look right at home (!) on our walls and I think the rose print cushion and storage stool, which are not only practical but really attractive, will fit right in with our current decor.

All these pieces are available to buy from the Matalan website here.

What do you think of these pieces? How have you decorated your bedroom?
