The moment we met (virtually that is, over social media) Anna Lysik of Don't Cramp My Style blog it was love at first sight. With her statement baby pink hair, sincere honesty and obsession with all things girly - we felt The French Bedroom Company and Anna were a match made in heaven. We were beyond excited when she deservingly won the Amara Interiors Blog Award for Best Newcomer in 2015, so took a few minutes to catch up with how the 9 months since winning the prestigious award have been for Anna and her blog...
Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog, Don't Cramp My Style
I am Manchester based interior designer and blogger. I mostly blog about rented space and budget living but I also love to chat about beauty and fashion on my blog. My style is very specific with Scandinavian, industrial influences with a pastel colour palette. I love to chat about anything interiors, so on my blog you are likely to find any style really.
What makes the perfect bedroom?
What’s currently on your bedside table?
I don’t really have a traditional side table. I have a chair with a some magazines. I have an analogue clock as I decided to ditch technology from the bedroom for a good night's rest, however, I have a side table lamp with build in phone charger but I charge my phone up 2 hours before I go to sleep.
When you travel, what is it you miss about your own bedroom?
When I travel I always miss my cats! They cuddle next to me (read: take all my space!) but even if I have to fight for a little of the bed it’s just great having them next to me. I always take my favourite books and usually hotel beds are super comfy so, I don't think I miss much really.
Which 3 items from the French Bedroom Company are on your bedroom wishlist?
I totally adore this mirror! I always wanted one! I think it’s a must for every bedroom!
I am in love with geometry and copper so this is the perfect side table!
