My Room Tour

I recently moved and I got to design a gorgeous new room for myself and I had to share its beauty with the world. After a lot of thought I decided to go for a white and grey theme, all my friends will know I am a huge fan of the colour white which can be a problem when I am also a huge fake tan fanatic. I think I might have to invest in a tanning tent or onesies to sleep in, my white sheets and walls will be ruined! Anyway back to the room... I took a trip to Ikea and basically bought every Ikea storage unit and drawers I have every wanted and a few extra bits too!

Being makeup obsessed I had to purchase some beautiful makeup storage. I was so excited putting this onto my Ikea trolley, it's called the Malm Dressing table, I am absolutely in love with this dresser. It has a gorgeous glass finish and a wide drawer for makeup storage. In this drawer I keep the makeup and beauty products I use on a daily basis. I picked up these plastic storage inserts at Ikea (Antonius). They fit perfectly into the dresser drawer.

On The desk I keep my gorgeous mirror (present from my sister I'm not sure where she purchased it, Sarah leave a comment below!). I also have a mirrored box I got as a promotional gift with perfume and a Brush bucket I got in Penneys.

I purchased the lipstick container from ebay at the awesome price of €3 link here. I haven't managed to fill the acrylic box just yet (Ikea, Godmorgon) I think maybe I overdid it a bit with the makeup storage, oh well any excuse to go and purchase some more! The brush pots are also Ikea (Skurar).

I also picked up this Malm chest of drawers. This chest contains six drawers, 4 large and 2 small top drawers. The drawers are very deep and durable. This is a great storage unit for all my clothes and I even managed to fit some of my lighter shoes and heels in the bottom drawer. The Frames are also from Ikea.

So obviously I had to pick up the Alex storage unit too. I love love love this unit, I think I have wanted one of these for about 2 years! I had so much fun filling it with all my makeup. My makeup is so neat and organised now... long maybe it last. Again the plastic containers are from Ikea (Antonius).

I am in love with my colour coordinated Nail Polish drawer, I gave away a lot of nail polishes to charity when I moved so I will have to stock up on a few more now to completely fill up this drawer.

The last few pictures are of my bed. As you can see its very white! Yes the tanning is going to be a problem! I purchased these gorgeous sheets from Penney's, I believe they were €18. I also picked up two grey pillow slips from Penney's, price €4, I think they really add to the bedspread and give it a chic look. The grey cushions are also a Penney's purchase. The grey throw is from Ikea (Gurli).
My white bed side table is from Ikea, (Brusali) . It was an unplanned purchase but I seen it and fell in love, I love the rustic white colour. I picked up my little cute owl in The Euro Store.

I am thrilled with how the room turned out. I hope you guys enjoyed the tour, a bit different to the usual beauty posts!


  1. I've always wanted a white shabby chic room and I know for a fact, that as soon as I move out, all my furniture will be from Ikea! They have the best designs at affordable prices x


  2. Love the storage :)

  3. gorgeous, calm, serene. I also adore white-on-white! Love it!

  4. Oh God I'd happily just transplant your room into my house! I had mine painted all white, but I can't wait until I can do it all up with new furniture, etc.

  5. Love, love, love it! Cannot wait to move into our new house so I can finally re-decorate my room completely. And the mirror is beyond gorgeous.


  6. Your room is lovely and girly. I'm in need of an idea trip but I don't drive so it makes it difficult for me to get there :( love everything you got. I really want the malm bits!

  7. Your bedroom is lovely, Amy! The white and grey theme makes the whole room look so classy. The bed is absolutely darling, and the owl figurine on the bedside table complements the look so well. Also, you have an amazing collection of make up and nail polish, I'm so jealous! :)

  8. Beautiful room, Amy! Your nail polish collection is amazing. I'm surprised that you were able to organize them in the drawers below your cosmetics. Mine would've been messy. Hahaha! You set up the bed very creatively too. I enjoyed the peek. Thanks for sharing that! All the best to you! :)
