INTERIORS - Cox & Kings Blogger Challenge

Cox & Kings are an established travel company who arrange tailor-made holidays to some of the world's most exciting and exotic places. When they approached me with a special blogger challenge to create an interiors look around a specific country I thought it was an awesome idea so I've been shopping and gathering my ideas this week. They've given us £250 to do the makeover with, I just hope it stretches to all the things I've got in my mind. Once the reveal takes place I'd love for people to vote for me over on the Cox & Kings Facebook page (hit the 'like' button now and you'll be ready to vote later).

The country that Cox & Kings chose for us was India, definitely one place that's on my list to travel to in the future! I was a little apprehensive at first because I'm a bit of a minimalist at heart and India definitely doesn't conjure up an image of sleek simplicity. What it does say to me is vibrant colours, intricate embellishment and pretty patterns. I've been thinking of ways to take inspiration from India but also ensure it's something that fits my home and my personality. For this reason, I wonder if my room will be very different to the other challengers. The other reason my room might be quite different is because I live in a very compact flat in central London and I don't have a lot of space to play with. My bedroom is also my study, so it's a multi-tasking space, so function as well as what it looks like is really important to me.

The other blogs taking part are... Cosy Home Blog, Home GemsBibbity-BobThat’s Yummy Mummy and Mary Poppins. Follow us on Twitter with our special tag #CKBloggerChallenge

I don't want to give too much away at this stage but I've included some of my pins from Pinterest below when I was looking around for inspiration.
