interior design -'s boho bedroom

interior adventures is a series all about my adventures (& misadventures) in re-doing and re-decorating my flat.

A few weeks before I travelled to Italy, I made a stop over at Ikea. And of course, in true Ikea fashion, I went in with literally 1 thing in mind – a clothes rack – and left with heaps more. Whilst there, I found a few new plant friends, an amazing little table-tray (is that even a word?), as well as some new tea towels, a drying rack for dishes, a new fitted sheet (ughhhh so soft), new salt and pepper shakers (my duo one with the squeezy handle snapped because apparently I am the Hulk), a new shower curtain (because mine always turns green/blue at the bottom from my hair), a foot stool for under my desk (because my feet always dangle due to my height – or lack thereof) and a few other things I have since erased from memory in an attempt to assuage my guilt forgotten. Still working on those witchy and boho details as well as trying to come up with some wall decorations – more specifically for the wall above my bed (as you can see in the last photo, it just looks a bit too bare above the bed) – and a platform for my mattress, but all in all I am really satisfied with way things are coming together so far.

    Rachael at

    • rae

      Thanks, Rachael! And I know, when I saw those hangers I knew I had to have them. Always such a fan of new plants too!

  • Hehehehe it is so easy to do! I do the same. I’m actually so in love with that rack, I need to visit IKEA this weekend now.

    Hannie Arden,

    • rae

      Thanks, Hannie! :) I have been having so much fun re-doing it!

  • Haha I love how you came home with an entire haul. Your room’s looking good! The table tray is ingenius.

    • rae

      Ikea just sort of does that to you, you know? Thanks, Jane!

  • Len Dela Peña Parent

    You have such a lovely space, everything looks really cool! I love clothes racks, it’s such a great way to organize and show off some nice clothes!

    • rae

      Thanks so much Kat! And yes, I am such a fan of clothes racks too – although they only really look good when everything is really organized!

  • you decorated your place beautifully and neatly :)
    I have a new flat, but same mess as the old one hahha

    Dice, Wildest Heart

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Dice! And I am sure that you can do some really fun things with your new flat by organizing the mess :)

  • Kathy

    You really picked up some great pieces. Even though you bought more than you planned to, it worked out because your place looks great. Thanks for sharing.


    • rae

      Thanks, Kathy! And yes, I definitely did go a bit overboard, but I was really happy with the pieces I picked up and am using it all so I think it was worth it!

  • Elizabeth Hisle

    Oh girl, I know that Ikea pain. Every time we go to Ikea we buy things we somehow needed and didn’t know it. At least, I’m still saying we needed them. Your room is coming along beautifully though. I need to do some serious work on my apartment!

    • rae

      Well, to give myself some credit, I have definitely used everything I bought from Ikea! Thanks so much, Elizabeth!

  • I cant get enough of Ikea. It all looks gorgeous!

    • rae

      Right? Ikea is the best. Thanks, Charlotte!

  • Your bed always looks so comfy – and your home looks so clean and crisp and white. I am rather jealous.

    Erin | CD

    • rae

      Thanks, Erin :) Not gonna lie, it is pretty damned cozy.

  • I want to put a clothes rack in my bed too, it would look amazing, also love those rose gold hangers!

    • rae

      Do it! I really think it adds a lot to the interior style of a room.

  • Love your style♥♥♥

    • rae

      Thanks, Summer!

  • Your house is literally like my dream in reality! It’s beautiful!

    Bethany | xx

    • rae

      Aw, thanks Bethany! Glad you like it!

  • Harija Ravi

    Great post, love your blog!


    • rae

      Thanks so much, Harija!

  • I love the simplicity of your flat. Wish there was an ikea close to me – but then again maybe it’s a good thing there’s not because I’d probably come away with a million and one things too.

    • rae

      Thanks, Monica! And it’s prooooobably a good thing for the very reason you state! The ikea in Berlin (well actually we have a few) is just far enough from me that I do not always want to go but close enough that I can make the occasional visit.

  • Ikea is always somehwere I go with a few things in mind and end up leaving the place with more than I can carry haha. I just love your style, your place looks amazing and it has such a warm, cosy feel to it too x

    Beauty with charm

    • rae

      I think a lot of people have that problem! I know I do! Thanks, Alina!

  • Everything’s perfect especially the table tray! you’ve decorated your place so beautifully! x

    • rae

      Aw, thanks lady!

  • you blog is amazing. just saw you’re from berlin too, thats so cool. hope you enjoy my home town.

    • rae

      Thanks so much, so glad you like LFB! And woohoo! What part of Berlin are you from?

  • Your place looks really really nice! I love going to ikea however always end up getting more than what I have in mind! I really like the cloth rack, it is cool and loving the cooper hangers xx

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Ela! And I think that basically every human on the earth has that problem with Ikea!

  • Rebecca

    I hear you about Ikea! I always go there with one thing in mind and leave with a thousand things. LOL! LOve the items that you picked! The plant is really pretty too and I love how something so small can make so much impact!


    • rae

      I basically think Ikea is designed to do that to people! And thanks, Rebecca! Plants really do make all the difference!

  • Aggh, I want that rack so bad!
    Your place looks beautiful and the light in the room is pretty nice too.

    • rae

      Go get it! It’s super inexpensive! And thanks, Noma!

  • I love shopping at IKEA, you found some great things! I really like your bedding, such a pretty print.

    • rae

      Thanks so much! and yes, Ikea is amazing!

  • I know too well how overwhelming Ikea is sometimes! Haha! This room is so you, Rae. Really enjoy your way of writing, you little Hulk you! ;-DD

    xoxo Ira

    • rae

      Thanks, Ira! So glad you like my writing!

  • Your room is looking gorgeous! I don’t know if this is a weird thing to say but I’m jealous of those copper hangers haha x

    Josie’s Journal

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Josie! And no it’s not weird at all, when I first saw them it was love at first sight, lol.

  • Megan Biggin

    What an absolutely gorgeous space! I love the combination of all the colours, patterns and textures. You have wonderful taste! x

    Megan |

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Megan!

  • dsfvd

    Great styling. You look perfectly. You have a great figure. I’ll be here often to look and wait for new styling.

  • I love your hangers and how clean everything has come together! It’s always so fun to add new pieces to your room!

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Stephanie! And yes, I love adding small pieces. Overtime doing so, a room really starts to transform.

  • Olivia Muller

    Your photos are on point! I always look forward to a new blog post from you!!


    Miss Olivia Says

    • rae

      Thanks, Olivia! So glad that you like LFB as well. It means so much to me!

  • It’s looking super lovely :) Also how bad is Ikea for overspending – gosh, I’m sometimes glad our nearest store is hours away!

    • rae

      Thanks so much Fee, and yes, Ikea can be such a bad place when you are low on money!

  • Oh wow, love your bedroom! I’m always torn between buying from Ikea or trying to find more individual pieces but I have found over time that Ikea pieces give you that blank canvas that really show off other more individual and unique items in your home. And it doesn’t hurt that it is way cheaper!
    Lovely to find your blog! I love it!
    Inma x

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Inma! And yes I agree but I think the best is when you mix some Ikea pieces with some unique pieces. That is what I have done in most of my flat.

  • Your decor is so gorgeous :) I love how you’ve made the clothing rack a focal point in your room

    Rachel xx

    • rae

      Thanks, Rachel!

  • Vanessa
  • Love how white and bright your room is! I am envious! Loving the little details you’ve got everywhere while still keeping it clean looking and fresh

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Katia! I think there is a fine line between too many details which start to look cluttered and just enough which add that little something extra, so I am glad you think it’s been done right here!

  • sweetsimpleday

    Such a cute bright interior!! I love the bed. :-)
    Have a good day. Xoxo

    • rae

      Thanks! Have a great day too!

  • Your room is beautiful, I’m so jealous! Your blog is amazing, I’m looking forward to having a proper read through all of your posts :)

    Kirstie |

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Kristie! So glad you enjoy LFB! And hope you had fun reading through some past posts!

  • Yara & Jude

    Wow beautiful room, wish mine was as neat as this!

    • rae

      Thanks! And it’s not always this neat, I assure you!

  • Marisa Wij

    woah your room is like pinterest dream room! <3 love it x


    • rae

      Aw thanks, Marisa! That is quite the compliment!

  • Ahhh love your room! I am exactly the same whenever I visit Ikea I will be like okay Sophie you only need this and this. And I end up buying a dozen different things. But I don’t really mind because I am a real interior geek and can never have enough really :)

    Sophie xx

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Sophie! And yes, Ikea is seriously such a dangerous place, haha! But I agree too – I just LOVE interior stuff so I find it to be a good use of my disposable income. I am also working from home currently so I really want to enjoy the space I am in since I spend so much time in my flat!

  • Looks so comfy!! Love the copper hangers!! Definitely taking all the inspiration to decorate my apartment!! :)

    Sara |

    • rae

      Thanks Mary! And yes, the copper hangers are amazing! Hope you were able to use some of this to inspire your flat! Would love to see how it is coming along!

  • Oh my gosh, I love your bedroom! The decor is so warm and cozy looking! Where did you get the bed tray table? It is so cute! :)

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Valerie! The bed tray table is from Ikea. What a great find, right?

  • RiceStyle

    Thank you Rae for your sweet comment :)
    I’m so glad to discover your blog ! Then I’ll start to follow your story.


    • rae

      No worries and so glad you like LFB!

  • Missy May

    One can never go to a shop to get just one thing. Lol!! Lovely haul and your bedroom looks so good and cosy. :)

    • rae

      The struggle is real, isn’t it? Thanks, Missy!

  • Your flat looks so amazing! I’m honestly having a serious dose of room envy at the moment!

    • rae

      Thanks so much Anne!

  • lauragale94

    Looks lovely! I absolutely bloody love Ikea, wayyyy too much considering I’m not even a homeowner yet. I aim to move out with my boyfriend next year, and the prospect of a huge Ikea haul makes me a little giddy!xx

    Laura | Lala London: Beauty & Lifestyle

    • rae

      Ikea is the absolute best! And yes, I am sure you both will have so much fun shopping for your future home! Good luck to the both of you!

  • I love how your flat is decorated! I have still yet to ever step foot into an Ikea even though I want to so badly because I know I could find so many things for my house. Maybe one day soon…


    • rae

      Thanks so much, Erica! Hope you are able to make it to an Ikea one day!

  • Loving your sense of style. Your bedroom is coming together nicely. Are those hanger a rose gold color? Ikea will get you everytime! I don’t think I’ve ever gone there and left with just one item. It’s impossible. lol

    xo, Jackie

    • rae

      Thanks so much Jackie! They are a coppery rose color :) and yes, I actually do not think I have ever managed to leave ikea with one item, but it is also a bit far away so I only go when I have quite a list of things to get.

  • Amy

    Your bedroom looks amazing! I’m so jealous ♥

      Thanks, Amy!

  • Wow, can you decorate my bedroom now? :D

    • rae

      Oh what I would give to be an interior designer actually!

  • Wow! Your bedroom looks like straight out of the coolest Pinterest decor board, no joke! I love how clean yet cozy it looks and I can’t wait to see the final results!

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Deborah! Be sure to check back here because I will be posting the next changes soon!

  • idu

    Great looking bedroom and great Ikea haul. I so relate to going in for one thing and coming out with tons, hahhaaaa. Enjoy.

    • rae

      Thanks so much, idu!

  • Sophie Smith

    Wow I’m definitely going to take some style inspo from your room! I love the fairy lights on the floor and the little tray/table on your bed especially. I always do the same as you, I go into Ikea for one thing and come out with lots of random things haha

    • rae

      So glad you can take some inspiration from this post!

  • Love the decor! :)

  • Isabel Robertson

    Your bedroom is gorgeous! I love the copper hangers!

    • rae

      Isn’t it? Thanks Lily! And yes they are copper!

  • I love your flat and I’m totally missing when I had my own little place where everything is neat and organized as I like it.

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Sheree! And I am sure you will own your own little place again and can decorate it how you like!

  • Hello! I like how clean, spacious, and neat your room looks like! Currently I am AGAIN in need to declutter my space. Visit me at Have a lovely day, Iga xxx

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Iga! Good luck with the decluttering as well!

  • how lovely! your style not only reflects on your clothes but your surroundings as well. very fab!


    • rae

      Aw, thank you so much, Jessica!

  • Anat Koren

    Stunning photos!!! Love the decor and the amazing colors!!!

    Have a lovely day :-)

    • rae

      Thanks Anat!

  • Ugh, Ikea is always so dangerous! Especially the home goods section…It’s like oh yes I could totally use a 3 pack of new toilet brushes….I need blinders when I go there so I don’t buy everything! Great post! I love the clothes rack!

    • rae

      Oh totally. I always go nuts but try to re-evaluate my wagon after passing through the downstairs area with all the smaller home bits and bobs. Thanks, Ellen!

  • Oh i love your interior

    So pretty

    I wish my room was like that

    • rae

      Thanks Zarrah

  • Your interior is gorgeous! I love your round pillow :D

    • rae

      Thanks, lady! The round pillow is from H&M!

  • Saz

    The bed tray thing is SUCH a good idea, I need one!

    // Oh Dollymix

    • rae

      Right? I love it and have already put it to good use!

  • You’re room looks so pretty yet I like how you’ve kept it quite simple. I’m starting to appreciate the less is more approach, so I’m trying to de-clutter… And I think it’s hard for anyone to walk into Ikea and not walk out with a whole bunch of extra things that they didn’t go in for.


    • rae

      Thanks so much, Samio! I love the less is more approach too, but do like a bit of whimsy in the form of vintage “clutter” too :) And yes, Ikea is basically like kryptonite for humans.

  • Your room is beautiful! I love every single detail, it’s so pretty!

    And I feel you on the IKEA thing, there was never a time I went into a store didn’t come out with 5 more items than I needed. It’s so hard to resist!
    I had to laugh when you mentioned the shower curtain because I know your struggle! I used to have dip dyed hair (pink tips) and the color was semi-permanent which in reality meant re-dyeing every week, which left my shower(curtain) a mess :D

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Rose! And yeah, Ikea and impulse buying go together unfortunately! And yes, that is the only downside of having colored hair – well that and having to constantly re-do it. all my doors and pillows are blue too D:

  • Your room is gorgeous! I love how you have decorated/styled it. It’s so pretty! Love your coat hangers by the way x

      Thanks so much, Charlie! And yes, fairylights make so much difference!

  • I love the simplicity of your room! xx

    • rae

      Thanks, Rivania!

  • Ahh, your room is so lovely! I love the low box shelves and your copper coat hangers are gorgeous! I think even if I end up moving into a place with built-in wardrobes I’ll probably still have a rack in my room for my favourite clothes because it adds a lot of personality to a room and if you enjoy collecting and wearing lots of different clothes why not keep your favourite things on display?

    jessica –

    • rae

      Thank you so much, Jessica! Yes, I really think having a rack just sort of adds this awesome style element that I am such a fan of. And I agree it’s kind of like a favourite curated collection.
