We seem to be the only place in the UK without snow, every day has seemed nearer to Spring for us this week. So while bloggers all over are posting beautifully white snowy images I am going all out with colour.






We seem to be the only place in the UK without snow, every day has seemed nearer to Spring for us this week. So while bloggers all over are posting beautifully white snowy images I am going all out with colour.
My nesting instinct has completely taken over. With just seven weeks left I suddenly want to redecorate everywhere. I am not crazy enough to attempt any of this myself so painters and decorators are arriving first thing Monday morning. It all started when I found
this website and had an urge to tackle the most uninspiring room in the house, the Utility room. The thing is we both have to walk through it every day to our office and studios so I would like to feel inspired by it. With the help of the amazing deckchair fabrics above and a little turquoise paint lets hope it will become a room of its own and not just a walkway. Before and after photos will follow.
The other room we are tackling is the living room. Admittedly, no surprise to you all I LOVE colour but I have always wanted one room in the house to be Swedish, French inspired. Pale greys, whites, sage, charcoal, blue etc etc. THIS is my very favourite shop and inspiration for the room. Owned by a former stylist from London, with incredible taste and style. To start with the walls are being painted grey and I am spending the rest of the day looking for a white fire surround. I am so excited to see the end result. I will share, I promise.
So thats that for today, any tips for suppliers of fire surrounds would be gratefully received.
Enjoy the rest of the snow this weekend, wish I could go sledging!!
