Our child-free bedroom

Aria is nearly a whole year old.. that went quick didn't it?! The little babe outgrew our lovely SnuzPod co-sleeper when she was 6 months old and she's now sleeping in her full size cot in her own room. It took a while to get used to her not being next to me but now I've got a bit of space I'm enjoying it and I want to give our bedroom a bit of a makeover. No baby stuff allowed!

So, firstly lets have a look at what we are working with at the moment....
Whilst I was pregnant I insisted that we got a kingsize bed.. I needed the extra space for my bump and in the early days of Aria being here she quite often ended up in our bed anyway so I'm glad we invested in one. This is the John Lewis Divan bed base in pebble grey  with a John Lewis Memory foam mattress.  To go either side of the bed we chose these cute turquoise Ikea bedside tables.. they don't seem to be on the website anymore but I'm sure I saw them last time we visited. 
Of course when investing a new bed its always nice to have some new bedding too- I was recently given the opportunity to choose a new duvet cover and pillows from Rooi; they specialise in luxury living accessories. 

After browsing through their bedding range I picked out this Belledorm Darius duvet cover and pillow set.  Rooi also sent a pair of Belledorm pillow cases in black to match the bedding set. I really like this duvet set as its seemed to wash well, has clever hand holes up at the top so you can make sure you get the corners of your duvet in fully and the design is reversible. 
Over the other side of the room is my wardrobe, chest of draws and makeup station. The chest of draws is old, battered and pretty much an unused piece of furniture at the moment. The draws stick and the top surface is covered in some sticky back marble paper to cover the makeup stains! I'm on the look out for something a lot more useful for this space; I've got my eye on this beautiful copper large Stow unit from Made and this Hoxton Multi Chest from Next.
Above the  chest of draws are some built in shelves..which also don't look to great at the moment but come in handy when storing books I want to read and beauty products I use occasionally. 
It's easy enough for me to pick out the products I need each morning but urgh.. the clutter makes me shudder. I could just declutter but that would be too painful for me; I find it so hard to part with beauty bits and pieces. You never know, I might need it one day! Any ideas of how I could make this space look more presentable?
We've also got this chair and footstool in our room at the moment; it was meant for the nursery but I've still got the floor bed in there just incase Aria wont settle in her cot during the night and I want to cosleep with her. The chair is the Momo from Habitat (£250) and the footstool was a bargain find at Aldi for around £25 (similar ones here). 

Ideally I'd like to have some more storage space once the chair has gone back into the nusery so thought it would be a good idea to utilise the space underneath the window; I was thinking it could also double up as a window seat so I've got my eye on the Kallax unit from Ikea turned on its side plus some storage baskets. 

I don't want to spend too much cash on bits for our room as we've recently decided that we're moving from this house at the beginning of next year but until then I want to make it as nice as possible; I'm thinking a big rug, a better way to store my beauty bits and a headboard for our bed. 

What's your favourite website to buy furniture from?

If you had to choose your most loved section of your bedroom what would it be?
