my life as is

I had since promised my bedroom mood board and here it is.

My carpet is detailed I mean it has pattern lol. So I will try to keep everything else quite simple especially the big items that will sort of torn down the ‘design’ on the wall to wall carpeting.

1. I love these table lamps form Additions Direct. The only thing that has stopped me from buying them is that I fear they might break while being shipped here.

2. The mirrors. You know I love the whole idea of mirrors behind lamp. I have two options no frame (very affordable) with stencil design or framed mirrors from Game issue is they are quite price but they will be easiest option. Will pick them up and just hang them no drilling needed unlike the frameless one which are for the price if two huge ones I can only by one small framed one, yet I want the huge one.

3. Wall paper. To be the feature wall behind the bed. Will try to use akara (Zambia clothe) instead of it. DH bought it off one lady in his office. If it doesn’t work out will remove it.

4. Four picture frames. Just haven’t decided on the colour, cream, white, gold or brown. Wasn’t thinking of putting any actual pictures thou not sure what as of now.

5. Plain shiny chocolate curtains or the curtains in my living room and will replace those.

6. Two black and chrome floor lamps already on their way to Lagos. One will definitely be behind the chaise chair. The other somewhere in the room.

7. Chaise chair – drama behind this ooh. Had ordered one and was to be delivered before Easter and the they postponed. After Easter they postponed and I decided enough is enough these guys are charging me store prices won’t take it so requested for my refund. I did manage to order it again close to my house. Delivery next week.

8. The two square cushions will be on B on the chaise.

9. Then these two will be on A.

10. Rug on its way to Lagos 🙂


I found these really cheap lamps in Game about usd50 each so bought two they looked kinda funny looking and guess that`s the modern look and since they are only temporary hey till I manage to get the ones I want. Will post my bedroom mood bard later on this week. See for yourself

Definitely not working. Tried changing the shade and use the one I had but nah not working still.

Definately from bed to mattress lol. So went back and got these.

Looks so much better hey.

On Saturday I also put up lace curtains in the bedroom and these is how they look. The room feels better already especially during the day thought I need to do a bit on unstitching and stitching. The cable I had bought isn’t really doing down well and I don’t like the look with the cable underneath the curtain rail. So decided for now will get the tape for the curtains rails and use hooks instead and hang the blackout curtains on the back for the curtains. So that’s the plan for next week.

Looking at it now looks ok but the real thing aint doing.


I`m not really happy about my bedroom. I had and still have certain imagines on how I would like my master bedroom and if you read this blog you know the things I want. As I was reading my daily blogs (ohh ya I need to update my page and put them up) I came across these and really pushed me to complete my bedroom.

I love that lamp. Perfect size. I'm still looking for my lamps and these are it. I tell you But these are designer and buying them from the states what if they get broken and I would have paid so much so Hell no. Will look for cheaper versions

And this one

Love this room but not for me. It's busy. The Mirrors are to die for. This picture pushed me forward with that I have to get mirrors for the headboard side lamps. I going to change the wall art in the bedroom as well. the rug here is perfect size but too much detail for me.

These were my original colour scheme. Dont know were I went wrong oops I know. Got to the curtain market and they didn’t have what I wanted so settled for less.

My bedroom was inspired from this room. Those lamps could do but the curtains I want. I need to look high and low for them. I want the bedroom curtains to be silky and light.

Totally inspiration but in my next house I think.

Hope you have guess what I want to do/buy now. Think I have listed this out before. Need to keep up with those tags

  1. Curtains
  2. Lamps – floor and table
  3. Rug
  4. and love seat.

Pay day is on monday so will happily enjoy buying and ordering. Problem is will take weeks to get here.
