Cherry Oak Manor

Welcome to my blog – Sharing my journey of making our house into our dream home.

Guest Bedroom 1


New Lighting

February 2019

I was kindly gifted some lights for the room from Value Lights.

Pink bedside touch lamp

I chose these pretty pink Lavoisier chrome touch lamps. They are such amazing value and are also dimmable.

Bedroom crystal light

For the ceiling I chose a Prague 5 way lead crystal light. The light is very bright and creates a stunning shadow on the ceiling.

White mirrored bedroom furniture dressing table

My new furniture has arrived and I love it. I have never been a huge fan of completely mirrored furniture especially as we have been renovating for so long and the house is dusty.
When I saw the Oana White range I just knew it would be perfect for this room. It is a mix of mirror with white glass panels and crystal handles.

Paper Flower Wall Art

January 2019

Over the past year I have become friendly with a lady on Instagram. I have always admired her beautiful flowers above her bed.

Little did I know that she actually made them herself.  She is so talented so I and another Instagram friend encouraged her to start making them to sell. A month or so later she set up her Instagram page Fleur De Papier.

Being a male dominated home I had desperately wanted some but at the time I didn’t have a room to display them in.  A few months later I was relooking at our guest bedroom and decided they would be perfect over the bed.

I was so excited and messaged her with my order, she was very busy (understandably) so I had to wait about a month for them to be made and sent out to be.

Last week the flowers arrived and all I could say was wow!!They are even more beautiful in real life than in pictures.

New Bedding & Curtains

November 2018

kylie renata white bedding set Kent

My niece was staying with us for a short while and being a young adult she has spilt makeup on the duvet cover. This gave me an excuse to buy some more lol.

Julian Charles kindly gifted me some curtains for the room so I decided to order some Kylie at home Renata Oyster bedding and matching pillows.

I love the elegance of this bedding, it has a stunning beaded detailing.

Storage Bed

January 2018

The front guest bedroom was low on our list of priorities and was going to be one of the last rooms to be done. Sadly there is a terminal illness in the family so my father and mother in law need to come down from the Midlands and stay for a few days. Luckily I had already painted the room so I only needed to order some furniture.

I popped onto BDI Furniture and I knew I could get some lovely bits delivered within a few days.

I ordered this modern Chelsea range, a king-size lift up storage bed with headboard, plus bedside cabinets which are wall mounted with the same headboard effect, so it looks like one large headboard with integrated bedside cabinets. At the time of taking this photo hubby hadn’t fixed them to the wall. Click here to buy the Chelsea Bed

Matching Furniture

I also ordered a matching 2 door wardrobe, chest of drawers and wall mirror to match. Everything came flat packed so it was easy to take them upstairs and into the bedroom. Hubby manage to assemble everything quickly (with a little help from me)

Next step was bedding, I love Amazon prime as they are usually next day delivery. I ordered some Catherine Lansfield Gatsby bedding which finishes the room off beautifully. click here to shop online
