    Hi

    Im redecorating my bedroom and i need advice, i have a very low budget (300-400). I already brought the wallpaper,here is it:
    http://reviews.diy.com/2191-en_gb/10407506/reviews.htm

    although the cream in the backround is definetly not that creamy, its much more pale. The floor is not included in that budget, but any advice on what colour floor to have would be great.

    The wardrobes i have are similar to this colour Click image for larger version.

    and they cant go unfortunately ( they are fitted and i dont have the money to have them all removed etc), so i need alot of advice on what colour to paint walls ( i only want wallpaper on one wall)

    I need advice on paint, rug, lightings, , frames, duvet colour, everything and anything basically. I tried to search myself but im not that good at this sort of thing and i might just mess it up. I did want to go for a vintage look but everything seems so expensive ! Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    that wallpaper is gorgeous! for the other walls i would either go for a similar creamy colour (but maybe more as it appears in the picture, to give the room more warmth) or a really pale pinky creamy colour. i have a similar kind of design for my room with a vintage floral wallpaper on one wall, and i got my bedding from here - http://www.justlinen.co.uk/
    it's an amazing site, it's all fancy branded stuff but madly reduced. they have loads that would match, just to start with, these would go -

    and they have LOADS more.

    i hope that helps!

    Have you tried eBay? Typing in 'vintage' or 'shabby chic' and then the item that you want often yields good results, at some very low prices.

    Could you paint the wardrobe?

    This is definitely one of girly interests, I like decorating rooms

    Here's some colours and objects I thought you could have in your room
    I thought about some really romantic colours. And for furnishing try to go for clean white pieces. I highly recommend you go to second hand charity shops that do furniture because they do have some nice things there that can be painted and varnished.

    Thanks !! Totally forgot ebay existed, jus had a quick look and found some nice vintage style mirrors i think ill get. I thought about painting but then it could look really cheap rather then vintage if not done right, id rather not risk it. = D
