Around The House - Part One

Before Sophie was born I may have mentioned improvements we were doing around the house (so much so you were probably all thoroughly bored!)
I thought as you all suffered the dull posts (or just lack of them!) that I would finally get on and share some pictures of the finished results with you!

Back in November I promised to share some photos of our new bedroom with you so it would seem appropriate that I start there
I only have one 'before' photo (sorry) I still like the pink, cream and brown that inspired Victoria and I to refer to it as the 'Neapolitan' room, but was also happy to have a change (and let James have some input!)


James wanted purple and although Its a colour I would usually be a bit scared of we decided to just go for it!
So 3 days and a professional decorator later.........

Voila!















We chose new accessories to complement the bold colours. I just love the curtains and the fabby chair! (a total bargain at £60 from TK Maxx!)
We are really pleased with the result!

What do you think?

Next week, the bathroom and the nursery!
Have a great weekeknd
Lots of Love

Oooh, I love it! It's beautiful. We've got the paint to do our living room chimney breast in that colour but haven't got around to it somehow. It's lovely! xx

Looking very glam indeed. Like Victoria's Cadbury name. Maybe we should all name our bedrooms after sweets, not sure what mine would be at the moment, probably something like Allsorts lol! I really must sort it out. xx

Wow that's such a dramatic difference. I don't think I could live with such a bold colour, but it looks absolutely gorgeous! Like a posh hotel :) thanks for your comment on my blog, always happy to have a new follower xx
