Sneak peek into my room..


This is going to be a new feature on this blog, I want to share with you my little world, if you follow me over on instagram (_ellamasters_) you may have already seen this little snap. Welcome to my bedroom. Pretty much everything in the photo is thrifted, gifted or hand-made (except for the dvds and hair products) I often use this space which is directly in front of my bed to keep me constantly inspired. It use to be my desk before dad moved in a thrifted 20p desk from the red cross. Its now used as collection space. I am hoping to get some lovely box shelves from ikea to pop up here to make it all fresh and organised but until then i like it how it is.

My pride and joy are the little trinkets in my letter press shelf, there are family jewellery, dried flowers and trinkets I have collected since childhood stacked away in those little wooden shelves. The glass dome was a find when i popped to a big antiques center in Essex with mum and it was a bargain, I am still to find something wonderful to put inside it? But for now i put all my gems and stones inside it. 

The little square picture frame has a beautiful embroidered mail art piece by Anna and i just love it, the day i got it i popped to hobby craft and bought a frame, i was to afraid i might damage it, she has embroidered my favorite quote in the middle with the words "follow every rainbow until you find your dream" its actually from the sound of music! thank you lovely.

The two paintings on the wall are my favorites the fairy was painted by me when i was really ill as a kid i think i was about 9 and it was my pride and joy, i remember telling my dad that i would never be able to create something so amazing again (i was 9 i was obsessed with art kinda scary the things i use to say) and the other is a lovely printed by Mandy Sutcliffe of Belle and boo, she actually gave this to me when I did some illustration work experience with her in 2010 (she is a lovely lady) I hope to one day be as successful as her. I hope you liked this sneak peek into my little world that is my bedroom...

  1. This is so gorgeous and unique! I absolutely love the wooden box on your desk. I love thrifting too - I find it so much more rewarding than buying from the high street!

  2. So lovely! I think it is such a good idea to keep all the things that inspire you close by. Also, I love the new illustration on your header. You have such a special talent x

  5. It's lovely, I wish my room looked like this! But instead it's a giant mess :(

    Oh I love Belle and Boo! I collect postcards of her work whenever I pop into Paperchase, which is about once a year lol.

  6. Your space is so lovely. I love having sneak peeks into people's creative areas, it really inspires me. I recently did a post on my sewing room, but did close up shots of certain things rather than a whole room shot. Don't know why.

  7. WOW!!! Thank you so much for the mention :) It looks great on your wall and I am so pleased you like it. I really should make myself one shouldn't I. I love that letter press shelf and how you placed all your little trinkets and treasures on it. I really want a glass bell dome myself. I'm not sure if you like taxidermy, but a bird or something like that would look great in it. I also got that Belle and Boo picture for my niece, but had to buy a greeting card of it and put it in a frame myself as I couldn't afford an actually framed print of it. The way you have put the ruler and hat on the wall is very inventive. I used to collect rulers and still have many of them, one changes colour when pressed, I like cool stuff like that. Anyhoo love your room looks so dreamy and cosy!!!!

  10. Awwww I love little posts like this, I find it so interesting to see how other people get inspired! I think you should put a red rose in the glass dome - like on Beauty and the Beast :). I can't believe the desk was only 20p, what an absolute bargain!

  11. I adore the glass dome - it reminds me so much of Beauty & The Beast where they keep the wilting rose! Gorgeous :) xx
