We have decided to stay put for the next year or so. At first this made me sad, but I do love our flat and am going to see the next year as an opportunity to make it an even nicer home and to improve all the little things that need prettying up.
Our bedroom is the one room we haven’t touched since we’ve been here. We’ve moved the furniture around a bit, added bits and bobs, but I feel it could do with a bit of a make over. I think the fact that it’s drab makes us less inclined to keep it tidy and nice, or maybe we’re just sloths. As BS would say, “it’s a total midden“.
We’re agreed that the first things that need to go are the not-so-lovely mirrored wardrobe doors. It’s a hard task to even open them as they’re so stiff and jammed and they let out a metalic screech when they finally do. We’re thinking maybe some simple white shutter doors. As for colour, we’re thinking a brighter, happier colour for the window wall. Maybe this blue?
I love these blue walls below.
I love our screen prints by Kathryn DiLego and think they deserve to be hung in a prettier room!Last but not least, this little fella has been waiting for a revamp for the last few months. I’ve not quite decided what to do with him yet, but clearing all the crap off him would be a good place to start…
Will keep you posted on the revamp! x
There seems to be more than just a “nip in the air” in Edinburgh right now, as I found out yesterday when munchkin’s hands nearly froze solid (he pulls his mittens off with his teeth – that’s my boy!). We felt it the most as we went up on the big wheel overlooking Princes Street. Brrrrrrr.
I’m doing my best to have warm thoughts and although I’m eternally grateful to have central heating keeping the wee man snug, nothing can compare to the crackle and flicker of a real fire. Imagine snuggling up in front of these.
And while we’re getting all snug and warm, why not throw in a bit of sheepskin too?
And if all of the above fail, i’ll just have to knit myself one of these…
I have to say, i’m a bit wary of wallpaper. Maybe it’s the flashbacks to my parent’s ’90s floral designs, or maybe it’s the fact that i’ve never stayed put anywhere long enough to make my mark. Whatever the reason, i’ve always stayed well clear. However, lately i’ve been thinking it could be fun to experiment. But how do you make a more personal statement with wallpaper, when you know hundreds of other people have rolled out the same patterns on their walls?
Then I found these… I love how quirky and fun they are. They would really make your home feel unique and personal.
Should have kept all those old textbooks…
Although, who an resist this floral paper? Perhaps my folks had it right after all…
