I have carpet. I have wardrobes. I have painted walls. I have a place for the baby to sleep. And even a few pictures on the wall. I'm FINISHED this room. Well, finished for now, cause in case you haven't figured it out by now, I have serious DDD (decorating deficit disorder) and like to change my mind about things. And just change things...
Anyway, here is how it looked a few years ago after we'd moved a few windows around and before the French doors. It's rather hideous. I can't believe I put up with this for so long!
There are no words to describe this disaster. See the skinny grey carpet pieces? That's where the walls went - this room was divided into two when we bought it. We ripped it out immediately and took away the wood panelling and wallpaper. And then I wished the walls were still up because it would have looked sooo much better than this!And here is how it looks now. I went very neutral - warm wood tones, beige and black and white, but the nursery end adds a little colour (I haven't changed the purple wall yet. I think I like it again) while still featuring those neutral shades. Of course it'll never stay this tidy and I'll have to add all the baby's stuff once it's born and is bombarded with stuffed toys and bits and pieces again, but for now I'm going to enjoy the tidiness!
My new wardrobes with doors AND handles on.
One day I'll replace this ancient TV with a smaller, stylish flatscreen.
Wedding, family and Zak photos are mixed with pretty illos and leftover wallpaper and fabric scraps cover a couple of canvases for a little black and white decor.
Looking towards the baby's end - there is a lot of space in-between, but I figured that would make great play space for Zak while I'm feeding! My chair was moved here again, but I think I'll put the rocking chair in once the baby arrives. It doesn't look as nice, but is much more practical!
I haven't changed anything this end. You can see close ups of this section here.
The baby's wardrobe - chock full of linen for both bubs and way too many little knitted cardigans!
