New Year, New Bedroom Short List

Over the last few weeks we have been asking you all to get on Pinterest to take part in our New Year, New Bedroom competition and we have been overwhelmed with Pinterest boards full of the most amazing dream bedroom creations.

There were quite a few common themes in your boards, lots of purple, silver, green and white hues. Natural wood also features heavily but the overwhelming trend? Deers. That's right, you lot love Deers.

The pinning period of this competition finished on the 20th January and our lovely interior designer judge, Lucy Gough, has been working her way through all the entries to find her top ten.

And here they are with some comments on what we think about them, if you want to have your say head on over to our Facebook page.

Lucy will be picking the winner, who will win the contents of their Pinterest board, over the next few days, we'll announce who it is on the 31st January!

Laura's board

Laura has created a board that will be "A new start for 2014 - gorgeous items for my dream bedroom, rich jewel tones mix with grey and silver." It's the colour scheme on this board that we love the most and how all the accessories work together.

Josephine's board

Josephine says "This bedroom is inspired by Scandinavian style, which I fell in love with during a trip through Northern Europe. Clean lines and natural materials create a tranquil feel, while statement pieces add character. A space to kick back and relax, enjoying the views of snow-capped trees!" Scandinavian style is a key trend to watch for spring and we really love Josephine's interpretation and inspiration.

Angela's board

What we really like about Angela's board is how she has created a very clean, neutral background with her furniture choices but has injected colour with her accessories. By doing this she has created a bedroom that she can easily change with the seasons, and that's just clever.

Lisa's board

Lisa's board is inspired by the Scottish highlands. She's used rich warm woods, heather hues, and luxury velvet cushions. She says "cosy armchair and fresh flowers are a must" we couldn't agree more.

Dawn's board

Dawn has created a board inspired by nature and it seems that she's definitely been influenced by this wintry weather. We also really like the way she describes it "Dream a little dream and bring a little of the outside in!"

Joanna's board

Joanna's board is another one that has been inspired by nature, well it is beautiful! She says "Inspired by the colours and textures of nature, my dream bedroom is a relaxing haven where I can get away from it all..." We can see how this could be the perfect space for that.

Julie's board

We love all the silver hues in Julie's board and with that lovely big Louis mirror and the System 300 mirrored wardrobe this is a bedroom to get dressed up in!

Holly's board

The green accents in Holly's board really stand out against the natural wood furniture and gorgeous Foxton bed. Again, it's inspired by nature and features stags and antlers.

Jon's board

What we really love about Jon's board, apart from the lovely use of natural wood with great patterned accents, is his commentary as you really get a sense of who he is and why he has chosen each piece.

Sophie's board

Sophie's board is another one filled with great commentary! We can tell that she's a "sucker for cute pillows" and has a thing for deers "yet another deer, this is just so adorable. My room would look so fancy with this..." Yes it will.
