My Dream Bedroom (and first ever moodboard)

Our house is slowly being transformed into a family home and once the children's bedrooms are eventually finished, after the kitchen and bathrooms are finally complete that is, it will be time to concentrate on little old me.

Time to create a haven where I can snuggle up with a hot chocolate and lose myself in a book.
Somewhere I can retreat to when I need 5 minutes peace (and some chocolate in secret).
Somewhere I can chill and watch movies with the Mr.

As colours can influence moods and emotions I would opt for purple in my boudoir which naturally creates a calm atmosphere, induces sleep and relaxation and helps to reduce stress. Perfect for forty winks.

I'd go for comfort combined with class in terms of style.

I've had peek at the Debenhams website and created my first ever moodboard to show you some of the items I'd love.
It's far from perfect but I've given it a go!

  • Purple 'Ontario' bed linen - Super King Duvet Cover £58.40 and pillowcases £22.40

  • Rocha John Rocha Grey scratched lamp £68 (x2)
  • Star by Julien Macdonald Designer silver beaded loop cushion £25 (x2)
  • Star by Julien Macdonald Silver 'Mirror Glitter' photo frames £12.80 (x2)
  • Medium vanilla cupcake housewarmer candle £16.99
  • Silver metal tea light tree £30.40
  • Graham & Brown Plum Roses row printed canvas wall art £34.99

  • Natural oak veneered 'Burlington' six drawer wide chest £400 (x2)
  • Natural oak veneered 'Burlington' high foot bedstead £320

As purple is quite dark and I wouldn't want the room to appear small, I'd have cream carpets and walls bar a feature wall behind the bed.
I'd also have a combination of white and silver accessories with a little glitter thrown in too for some sparkle!
The candles would produce a beautiful scent and light up the room nicely in the evenings.

How would you create the perfect bedroom?
