My Bedroom–Room Tour!

Ever since posting about my makeup storage video (here) I have been asked SO many times to do a ‘room tour’ video and blog post!  Now, I love the idea of this because I adore looking at interiors and people’s personal spaces, but I have a confession… I’m a bit of a hoarder!
I HATE throwing stuff away and will keep everything.  I’m very sentimental and also get worried a lot that I’ll chuck something out and then need it later.  Because of this, my bedroom is a tiny kind of hobbit’s den.  With its slanted ceiling and box shape, along with so much of my stuff, it can get very cramped, but I prefer to think of it as ‘homely’! 
I’ll leave you with some pictures of the good parts of my room (the tidy parts) so you can get a feel for the atmosphere!

As you can see I have A LOT of stuff on my desk!  My desk is from the 18th century and I ADORE it!  It was a present from my parents, who got it on ebay!  It has lots of drawers (and also a secret compartment).

This is where you can see the full extent of my hoarding!  I love keep old dried up roses given to me (by past lovers, my parents etc), empty beer bottles from good times, a few little ornaments and a perfume bottle I picked up from Morrocco a few years back.

My nail polish rack, also from eBay.  I have a lot more polishes but these are the ones I like having on display.
I got these two suitcases from a  shop in Romford called Home Sense.  They are filled with products I need to review!

I have a little cubby hole in my wall where I keep some more makeup storage.  Sorry about how messy the above is!

So there are a few pictures!  I haven’t shown you my little bookcase, photo wall or where I keep all of my perfumes but I will do maybe at a later date!  I hope you’ve enjoyed a little sneak peek into my little bedroom!
What’s your bedroom like? Do you hate throwing things away too or are you tidy and organised?

    It will be months before I'm ready to do a room tour – It won't happen until we move out as it's currently my fiance and I living in my bedroom, including a sofa and a dining room table… lots of books, dvds, make-up and clothes… It's a Horrendous mess!

    Your room looks lovely! 🙂 I hate throwing things away, I always think that I'll need them at some point in my life again or that I'll miss them or whatever haha 🙂 xx

    I try to keep my room as tidy as possible, but I always keep boxes and tins because you never know when you might need them. (Well that's what I tell myself. We all know I'm not going to have any use for them.) However I do have my cupboard of general rubbish for things I don't know where to put.

    I love the draws at the side of your bed, are these from Ikea? They're the perfect height for the side of my bed and look really sturdy.

    I love your room, it's very twee! I had a slanted ceiling in the house I just moved out of, I found it kind of oppressing to be honest.

    I have LOADS of things in my room, I really need to chuck some stuff away but I like to keep everything! I should do a room tour myself really, I've not done one in my new house!

    I'm a bit of a hoarder too! Like pretty clothing labels, I can't bear to throw them away! Your desk is beautiful! xx

    I was drawn to this post because I saw the Morrissey poster on the preview image. But you have such a gorgeous room. I love your desk and your decor style. 🙂

    Goodness me, your room looks beautiful! I love your desk, and the bottles look so cute! I have an old milk bottle collection which I like to use for flower displays too sometimes.

    I love your bedroom. It's really pretty and it looks so clean and tidy but still full of stuff! That's exactly the look I'm striving for, I hate throwing things away but I'm trying to learn to be organised about it!

  11. December 26, 2013 / 5:42 pm

    Your bedroom is so quirky and cute 🙂
    Really want a nail polish rack like that!

    Your room looks gorgeous! I'm a hoarder as well, which is why I will never be able to do a room tour! I'm just so afraid that I will throw something away and really miss it later on. Memories are important!

    Your room is so lovely and unique, my bedroom is all white, and everything is hidden in my triple wardrobes and desk, it helps me to relax that way!

    I'm a minimalist ocd weirdo! God I wish my room was so adorably quirky like yours! xx

  15. December 26, 2013 / 10:09 pm

    your rooms so cute and quirky! 🙂

    Your room looks so cute and cosy 🙂 and it's cool that you have a photo of Morrissey on the wall. It's funny cos I was listening to The Smiths when I clicked on this post and then I saw he was in the first photo of your room! (I'm a big fan of Morrissey as you can probably tell hahaha) xx

    Wonderful..!! I love your nail polish rack. This is such a nice collection. These different colors amazed me a lot.

  18. December 27, 2013 / 6:30 am

    love this im taking the beer – follwer idea! very pretty

  19. December 27, 2013 / 11:47 am

    Far too messy, I like shoving everything under the bed to make it tidy 😛 it backfires on me of course

  20. December 27, 2013 / 12:52 pm

    Oooh I love the dried up roses in those bottles 🙂 I actually kept all the roses my boyfriend gave me for Valentine's Day, and we have been together for almost 13 years, so yeah, that's a lot of roses!

  21. December 27, 2013 / 3:47 pm

    That desk is gorgeous!! Love the bottles holding the dried roses.
    My room, well flat is covered with nick nacks and sentimental pieces. Just need more candles and I'll be happy. 🙂

    I really like the canopy over your bed, I also own that No7 mirror from boots I LOVE it. It's a lifesaver when doing your make up at night. I really like how you used the dried up roses as decoration in the bottles. Very unique and very cool 🙂


  23. December 28, 2013 / 2:36 pm

    I love your room! The collection of vintage cameras are amazing, really nice! x

  24. December 28, 2013 / 8:09 pm

    Your desk is gorgeous! I'm the same with hoarding, but every year or so I have a massive clear out – feels so good to get rid of things sometimes!

  25. December 29, 2013 / 2:58 am

    I absolutely love pressing flowers but then I never really do anything with them. I like this idea 🙂

  26. December 29, 2013 / 9:44 am

    I love how cozy your room looks!

  27. December 29, 2013 / 8:21 pm

    Aww your room looks so cozy and homely! 😀

    I'm terrible at keeping things, I even keep old perfume bottles because it'll either look pretty or remind me of the person who bought it for me.

    I keep so much rubbish, even cinema tickets! xD

  28. December 29, 2013 / 9:46 pm

    Your room looks amazing! I'm thinking of doing a room tour on my blog but I didn't know how to do it and you have me a bit of inspiration and idea of how should I do it. xx

  29. December 30, 2013 / 5:45 am

    OMG I'm the complete same as you! I can't stand throwing things away because I always feel I'll need them later!!! :O
    Love how you put the curtains about your bed btw!

  30. December 30, 2013 / 10:27 pm

    I'm definitely going to have to invest in the nail varnish rack! So cute!!

  31. January 1, 2014 / 2:08 pm

    Aww your room is so cute! I'd love an attic room! x

  32. January 1, 2014 / 2:10 pm

    Aww your room is so cute! I'd love an attic room! I'm the exact same about hoarding things as you, so paranoid I'm going to get rid of something then be looking for it in years to come, I've done it before so now I'm just like noooo keep everything haha! x

  33. January 2, 2014 / 12:04 am

    i love the eclectic-ness of your room, when I moved to australia I really missed my 'stuff', things, trinkets are like memories, I have slowly been bringing them all back with me in suitcases, it's the little things that make you feel at home 🙂


  34. January 3, 2014 / 9:10 pm

    Your room is sooo cute! Your makeup is so organised and I'm in love with your dressing table 🙂

    Your room is amazing! I love the way you store your things. Definitely going to copy the empty beer bottle idea 🙂

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who dries and keeps old flowers!!

  37. January 7, 2014 / 11:28 am

    I love this post, I love being nosey at other peoples rooms and I love yours! xo

    Can I just say that I love the idea of putting dried roses in empty beer bottles. Just like you I'm a hoarder. Throwing something away feels like throwing away memories. Also, your desk is stunning. Too bad IKEA won't sell something similar.
