Where to go and what to do to get Charlotte’s style
LOOK-A-LIKE search around online for a bargain. Charlotte got her bed second-hand on ebay for £399, which originally came from Bedroom Furniture direct.
FANCY FRAME give your bathroom a serious dose of style with an ornate wall mirror. Find a wide range of designs at Wayfair, prices start from £31.99.
BE KIND Upcycling is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly, as it rescues furniture that might otherwise end up on a tip. try gumtree for pre-loved finds.
SIMILAR SHADES Use a neutral colour in multiple rooms to pull the different schemes together. try Wilko’s Coastline matt emulsion, £12 per 2.5ltr, for a cosy feel that’s not too dark. Charlotte has used this in her bedroom, dining room and on the bathroom panelling.
SMART STORAGE add built-in bench seating in an informal dining area, or buy a ready-made option if you’re renting. dunelm’s devon Cream storage bench, £149.99, has drawers and baskets as well as a comfy padded fabric seat.
