At Home With @vixmeldrew
After moving from the hustle and bustle of London city life to the idyllic Kent countryside, we caught up with blogger and community creator Vix Meldrew on all things home, bedroom bliss and Vix’s favourite Dunelm pieces.
After making the move over six months ago, Vix and her husband Ben have settled into their new home well and have welcomed a new addition to their family, Olive the cockapoo! She’s very cute, and greeted us with lots of puppy cuddles when we entered Vix’s beautiful home.
As you step through the front door there is a spacious kitchen/diner/living space, which is perfect for Olive to run around in. Vix likes that the multipurpose space always conversation flow – Ben could be cooking and Vix could be relaxing on the sofa, and they can still catch up about how their day has been.
The living room features spacious patio doors with floor to ceiling curtains, which frame the glass perfectly. At the breakfast bar are our Pax Rattan Bar Chairs, effortlessly bringing natural textures into the room and make informal dining look smart. In the breakfast area there is a gold bar trolley that is decorated with matching gold glasses for added sparkle.
As it’s a new build home, fitted wardrobes came with the space which is a massive benefit for keeping the space clear and tidy. But for extra storage and a TV stand our Rumi Chest of Drawers is the perfect match to the bedroom decor.
After wanting to put their own stamp on the house and add character, Vix and Ben made the decision to paint a feature wall dark green, which adds a sense of calm to their tranquil space. Our Rumi Bedside Tables match the chest on the opposite side of the room, and perched perfectly on top is our Odisha Monkey Lamp which brings cosiness to the room on in the evenings.
Describing the way her bedroom feels, Vix tells us her bedroom has to be calming as she goes there to relax when she’s done with the day. The bedroom is really switch off time for herself and Ben, so candles and lamps are the perfect finishing touch.
