Now, we've all packed a laughable amount of things for a holiday and been mocked by our travel buddies when we show up at the airport.

Many of us have brought a suitcase for an overnight stay, or added extra baggage onto our flights for no reason. Especially in this country, when we can never predict what weather we're going to have.

Forgetting a key item while packing is a deep psychological fear. What if we forget our core makeup items? Our medical bag? Our passport? Ourselves? It's a worrying time.

Statistics from QS Supplies have shown that 10 percent of people take bed sheets to hotel rooms with them, because they won't want to use the provided sheets. Um, okay?

The survey of 1,008 people revealed that many of the population (we won't name names) have taken their own bedding on holiday with them to avoid catching germs or contracting bacterial infections.

5.9 percent of the survey respondents also admitted to taking personal cutlery to a restaurant, meaning one in every 16 eaters in any restaurant you go to have possibly snuck in their own knife and fork.

We can't imagine using up vital bag space to stuff in our own sheets and bedding. Those people clearly have some strange priorities that don't involve bringing five pairs of shoes and a shop's worth of cosmetics.

12 percent of people apparently don't think hotel sheets are washed enough to warrant sleeping in them, but we wonder why?

Unless they're stained or have a weird odour or appearance, we're more than happy to sleep in a big, fluffy hotel bed with extravagant pillows and throws.

Now, if someone could just pay for us to head on a weekend away, preferably to a spa, that would be lovely!

As every dedicated pinner will know, Pinterest is a haven for interiors inspo and there are few rooms in a house which deserve more design dedication than the bedroom. 

Unfortunately the problem with developing a unique personal space is that it can take a lot of time and effort, so we’ve pulled together some eye-catching ideas from the online board sharing platform to help you kick your creativity into gear.

The bed: The main focus of any bedroom is obviously the bed but even if it is the room’s most practical feature, it doesn’t necessarily have to be boring.  Whether your sleeping space is flat on the floor or stacked on top of someone else’s, Pinterest will know how to make it look magical.



Walls: While all white bright rooms will always be super chic, Pinterest also has a great collection of contrasting colour bedroom images.  It demonstrates that there is no need to keep walls boring as striking wallpaper can be applied to create a unique focus point in the bedroom and mix and match paints can be used on alternate walls.


Lighting: Whether it comes from a natural light source like a large framed window or an artificial base like a quirky lamp, light in a bedroom is an absolute essential.



The little things: Sometimes it can be the smallest details which give a room its authentic feel.  From stacks of magazines to framed positivity quotes if Pinterest promotes anything it’s well placed small touches.

Kourtney K has been posting pictures of her impressive Calabasas home on Instagram for some time now.

However, having finally finished the decorating, Kourtney is bored already and has decided to put her home on the market.

The decor is very Alice in Wonderland, with vibrant colours and patterns. It’s hard to know if this will make the house easy or hard to sell – only time will tell.

Have a look at the unconventional interior design and tell us what you think!
