The house is an eclectic mix of old and new, of neutral and brights, of gold and silver and of practical and just pretty. Each room is different from the next. The loft, the main bedroom, is my husbands and mine. The kids have all decided on a bedroom and are helping me with decorating ideas. This leaves one ‘spare’ room. A room to decorate however i wish….This is the first room that i have finished!
Shopping for bedlinen, doonas, blankets and pillows has been an expensive exercise! Unfortunately, it is an area where i need to buy NEW and thankfully I’ve been able to save a little money due to end of winter sales. And thank goodness really, because it has cost enough without paying full price. I guess it’s all in the timing.
The bedside table was created using a little experimenting. I picked up a couple of barrel planters, lacquered them, glued and strapped them together and finally attached a tray on the top. In total it only set me back $50, which i was pretty pleased with. The lamp shades were a Target buy and were ridiculously priced at $3 each! gotta love clearance sales! I whipped up the cushions with Amy Butler fabric. And the frames above the bed, well you’ve seen those before…..vintage prints $15 in total.
I really like this room. It’s not typical of what i usually like, but maybe that’s the reason it appeals to me…..a change is as good as a holiday right? Alright, a couple of the other rooms are very closed to being finished. I’ll post when they are done!! Excitement!!
