One of the first things Daisy and I did when we moved into our new home (tour photos coming soon don’t worry!) was start a shared Pinterest board for girly interior inspiration. We are lucky enough to have white walls in our flat, which for rented places in Bristol seems to be a rarity – you can see the original tour of the flat here. We knew we wanted the flat to have a feminine, eclectic feel with lots of copper, rose gold, mixed textures and kitsch accessories thrown in here and there.
Here’s just some of the girly interior design inspiration we found, oh how we wish our budget could stretch to blush pink sofas!
Living Room Inspiration
We’re not allowed to make extensive decorative changes to the flat, so we’re limited to hanging a shelf in every room, for some much needed storage, and some pictures within reasons. We’d love to add picture rails to layer artwork like in the image above but we’re going to have to settle for a more traditional gallery wall set up. I’m obsessed with the sofa above and we’re actually looking for a cosy lounge chair which will hopefully be blush pink. 🙂
This is kind of the set up we’ve replicated, with the gallery wall above a wall of half height Ikea Billy bookcases. We’ve grouped some decorative accessories on top of the bookcases but we’re making an effort to have the decor in our lounge a bit more minimalist than my last house. Every little detail adds something new to any room. If it wasn’t for a friend of mine recommending that I looked for inspiration on Pinterest, I don’t think I would have found out about companies like Office Monster, where you can get anything you need for your home office. This is where the idea of getting a bookcase became apparent. If it wasn’t for companies like these, I probably wouldn’t have give it any thought. Doing research before buying anything is key.
As always I’ve got our bookcases organised by colour, love me some rainbow bookcases.
I’ve got a beautiful antique sideboard that I scooped up from Gumtree for just £20 and some Annie Sloan blue chalk paint so I can’t wait to paint it to look like the above. I’ve been putting it off for far too long oops!
I love this colourful layering of art and accessories and the way they’ve got a few pieces on there without it looking cluttered. Definitely inspiration for me as I find creative ways to display my treasures without it being overwhelming.
We’re incredibly lucky to have Daisy’s parents’ vintage maroon chesterfield sofa which is such a centrepiece to the room. It really warms the place up and we want to experiment with a variety of textures and patterns for the throws and pillows on it to add a bohemian, cosy feeling to the lounge.
Our gallery wall will be all framed in white so will hopefully have a clean minimalist feeling like this image.
Obsessed with this whole style, the blush pink chair with brass legs kills me! This is kind of the vibe we’re going for, clean white walls, blush pink tones, monochrome art and house plants.
Speaking of house plants we want to scatter them throughout the house to add splashes of greenery and a boho vibe. I’ve still got my tiered plant stand which will hold a lot and we’ve got a cute kitchen windowsill which will house some too.
We both have slightly different style, Daisy’s definitely more glam and minimalist than me and I’m slightly more bohemian with lots more trinkets, but both of us want our bedrooms to feel calm, cosy and feminine. We’re thinking neutral bedding, lots of pillows to add splashes of colour and texture and inspirational prints.
This set up is beautiful, I love the mix of textures and the oversized prints above the bed.
I am so drawn to bedrooms that use a combination of blush pink and grey as well as a mix of textures, also the picture rails and house plant make this bedroom look so cosy and inviting.
One feature we both want to incorporate into our bedrooms is feminine and feminist art prints. The above are from Society 6 which has a great selection and Etsy is full of feminist prints which Daisy and I adore. We’ve decided to really embrace our feminine sides so the art in both our bedrooms will combine a lot of blush pink, rose gold, copper and monochrome with lots of quote and phrase prints in the mix too
I’ve got a long string of copper lights which plugs into our USB wall sockets (what a cool home feature!) and lots of Instax photos from various house parties and fun times with my squad, I think this is a great way to display them.
I really want to add copper elements to my bedroom and a DIY clothes rail like this would be ideal especially as I don’t have a wardrobe so need some kind of storage solution.
As I have a desk in my bedroom it’s important to keep it looking organised and pretty as visual clutter can have an affect on how easily I’m able to rest in my room. I love the blush pink, rose gold and marble desk bible going on here. Thankfully it’s so easy to find copper and rose gold homeware at the moment.
I’ve still got my Ikea trestle legs so will try to replicate this kind of desk set up, I love the idea of having a mood board style inspiration wall above my desk although I will need to keep it pared down so it doesn’t get overwhelming.
Finally, I have lots of square Instagram prints from my various travels and adventures and I’ve been looking for a creative way to display them. Displaying them in the corner like this is fun and unusual and something I might have to replicate.
So that’s the round up of girly interior inspiration that I’ve found on Pinterest, how about you? Any must-pin images that get you inspired for your home?
