How easily a week flies by!
So, can you guess what we've been up to this week?
Yep, inspired by Gillian's decorated start to the year, ( and my my hopelessly un-decorated bedroom for the past 10 years) I got cracking with some bedroom wall painting and dreaming of new duvet covers, prints and accessories for our little retreat.
I always think I quite like decorating.
However, I remember now, this is not strictly true.
What I like is when its over.
And then the dreaming of nice this, nice that and nice the other can stop being dreaming and start, well, being.
I have already taken the bold step of choosing white, yes WHITE for the walls. I'm so lame!
This is so I can nick Gillian's idea of changing colour schemes when the mood takes me and it only involves swapping a few cushions and putting up a different picture - and not spending any of that 'big-ish' money. Top tip.
Yellow is up there too, a) because it is so cheery and b) because I already have a yellow eiderdown that is waiting to be unleashed into its full glory.
And undyed linen, as my headboard and curtains are staying (a lot of open weave ikea linen fabric went into making a valance, headboard cover and curtains and I"m not ready to replace all that effort on a sewing machine)
But the big decision now is choosing the flooring.
When we moved in we stripped the floor back to the original pine floorboards, and although I still love this look, the time has come for something a bit softer under foot.
But what colour carpet goes with white walls, natural linen curtains and a yellow bedspread?
('Natural' makes me nervous, because really it's just brown, and I'd like something a bit well, nicer than just brown.)
What would you choose? Have you seen any great pics that might work?
I'm really loving these prints from inaluxe and this Isa mountain range....and I'm thinking grey might be a good option....decisions, decisions...
Well, back to the painting. Woodwork now. Then the end is in sight. Hoorah!
Happy weekends to you all
