Bedroom Update - Finally Buying My Dream Bed!

Hey beaut's!

When you live in a rented home theres only so much you can really do to pimp it up and make it your own! I have shared a few little decorating updates on my blog along the way - the bathroom being the latest one - but the next room we really wanted to update was our bedroom, and because we finally purchased my dream bed I just had to share it with you all as it was a complete bargain! 
Last year me and my boyfriend actually took the plunge and got new wardrobes each, new bedside tables to match and got a new memory foam mattress as our old mattress had more lumps and bumps than a camel - I was so glad to see the back of that bloody thing - and the furniture was a little dated. After we made these changes I then knew I wanted a new bed,  I've always lusted after a crushed velvet bed with a huge headboard but these came with a pretty hefty price tag however... after searching for over a year - that's no exaggeration by the way - I came across my dream bed on eBay of all places!
The bed we went for was the Christina Ottoman Storage Bed Upholstered Crush Velvet in Mink, it comes in so many different colours too and was just £279.00 for a king size which is honestly amazing for this type of bed! One thing I did worry about with buying a more affordable bed was the quality, but honestly this bed is so heavy, sturdy and well made. We was actually quite shocked at just how nice the bed is and it looks and feels like it cost so much more. The ottoman storage is so handy too, we have no real built in storage in our house so I now have the perfect place to store my other bedding sets, cushions etc.
Obviously when getting a new bed you just have to get new bedding and I couldn't resist this Signature Pearl Bedding Set in White from Terrys Fabrics, the pom pom detail just had me sold from the off, I love it! They also had some Kylie Minogue Bedding on their website which is just beautiful too and is definitely on my wish list! We also got some new bed side lamps from Asda, some new crushed velvet curtains from Wilko and the scatter cushions came from good ole B&M. 

We still have a few more bits and piece to add in the bedroom like some wall art, a mirror and some decorative bits so maybe I'll do another update soon! What do you think of the bed then beaut's? Do you love it as much as I do he he.
