A Room Of Our Own!

James and I have spent a lot of time preparing for the arrival of our little girl, we have decorated, cleaned, ruthlessly cleared out (mainly me!), fixed and adorned the house!
We are happy with the results and are as ready as we will ever be for our arrival!
(I may even give you all a tour soon!)
We chose to live in my house but during the last few months have amalgamated and combined tastes (and compromised!) and made our family home.

The only room we hadn't changed at all was our bedroom.
The thought of completely decorating was far too much to contemplate for us but I couldn't help feeling that we should have a bedroom that we had chosen together!

Then a friend told me that she had just had her house decorated professionally and was really pleased with the results!
When I mentioned it to James he was just as enthusiastic as me!

I know paying a decorator may seem a bit extravagant but we couldn't take any more on, and having done it I have to admit I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

So after 2 days (where we didn't have to lift a finger!) we had a beautiful, professionally finished bedroom! (seriously it was like magic!)

I'm going to be mean and make you wait till next week before I reveal all as we are waiting for delivery of a few finishing touches!
I'm not so mean as to not give you a sneak preview of one of the paint colours though!

James chose 'forest fruits', a far cry from my usual choice of pastels!
I love it!!!
What do you think?

Lots of Love

Lovel the colour and totally agree that there comes a time when you have to let the professionals in. My time has come and I too have decided that my days of decorating are well and truly over so hung up my paste table and brush and got a 'little man' in to do the job...
worth every penny :)

Ooh! Can't wait to see the finished results! Having decorated our flat ourselves ... next time I will get a professional in! I hate decorating ... and we still have so many fiddly bits to finish off!

I love your choice of colour. We usually get a professional in as I hate decorating and it takes hubby far too long to finish for my liking.
