Bedroom Room Reveal: One Day Makeover

tufted headboardI love a good room makeover, especially one that doesn’t cost the earth and has maximum impact. The Block room reveals have sadly been postponed until tomorrow night, due to the cricket, so i thought i’d try and fill the void with my own room reveal. When we moved into our new home in January of last year, we couldn’t afford a proper headboard for our room. I was happy to hang our New York City print from IKEA over our bed as a temporary option as it looked fab. I was so pleased with it in fact, that I haven’t really looked for anything to replace it, until now.diy wall pennantWhile the NYC print looked great, it was pretty impractical as it provided no support while reading or crocheting in bed. Still, I didn’t feel moved to replace it until I saw the perfect headboard at one of my local furniture and homewares shops. SOLD! Hubby and I strapped it to the top of our prado and carefully drove it home. We only had to stop three times to adjust the ropes – clearly we aren’t brilliant at tying knots!! :) Tufted headboardI bought a few bits and pieces to help tie the room together, but most of the items I already had on hand. Shopping at home is the best!! Overall, I’m pretty stoked with how the room has evolved. Hubby said it’s not the manliest bedroom, but I did I include a couple of skulls to keep him happy. :)bedroom ideas and decor

7 Vignettes for August with The Interiors Addict and Freedom Furniture

7 vignettes with the interiors addict

7 vignettes with the Interiors Addict on Instagram just keeps getting bigger and more impressive. The hashtag #7vignettes now has over 20,000 photos under it’s banner and some of the vignettes are amazing! One of the great things about 7 Vignettes is the warm, welcoming and encouraging community that has formed via Instagram. Truly a beautiful and warm bunch of people, with only kind words to say.  Freedom furniture jumped on board this month with a great prize of this gorgeous taupe chevron chair. There are also 10 runner up prizes from Casetagram and Stickygram.

The highlight of the week for me was having my ‘tea’ vignette featured by the Interiors Addict and having three of my pics ‘liked’ by Kara Rosenlund. And amazingly i received a ‘like’ from Megan Morton!!! yay!!! super happy about this as i own some of her design books and i love her style. What a fun week of vignettes. I’m looking forward to September!! :)
