The Drawing Room – Pre-reveal

I’m not gona lie, i’m typing like this: And I know i’ve already used that GIF, but I don’t care, it’s frickin funny. And this is how I type when i’m this excited. Before I’ve just got back from a visit to see the Drawing Room project. I started working on this room a few months ago and man alive, it’s changed so much since my first visit. The whole room is not quite finished yet, but I thought, what the hell, I’ll just show you some cool close ups, because if I don’t, I might actually burst! If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my post earlier this week where the Lines wallpaper by Ferm Living was going up on the walls. I think this photo has had the most likes of all my pics… which kind of sucks as that was taken by the decorator. “Eff you decorator, Stealing my Inta-thunder!” So now it’s time for MY pics. Let me show you some little hints of what’s to come. No …

The Edwardian Master Bedroom

Let me introduce you to a new project. A four bedroom Edwardian, stone-built property with most of its period features, full of character, books, art, family memories, two kittens, a cat, colour and pattern. The house is absolutely full of life, but needs some work to get it looking its best. Where to start? The master bedroom of course.

The first being the Compton wallpaper by William Morris. That HAD to stay, in fact, this whole room has been planned around it. We needed more. The beautiful curved wood armchairs with William Morris fabric, of course they are staying. Oh and the gorgeous chest of drawers aren’t going anywhere either. All definitely keepers. Everything else in here… pretty much going. Everyone say buh-bye to: Built in mirrored door wardrobes. **waves** Carpet. Adios. White radiator on chimney breast wall. Sling yer hook. Bed. Not quite cutting it. So …

The Drawing Room

I have news. News of the exciting variety. It’s about this room: I introduced this Edwardian property earlier this month. You can have a wee catch up here. Since then we have made massive progress with the renovation and re-design of this room. Huge in fact. The first bit of news is the wallpaper has been agreed. The feedback from the last blog post was fantastic. Everyone loved the wallpaper (how couldn’t they?) but there were some of you with reservations about it being on every wall. And I get that, it’s certainly a bold move. After a few days letting it sink in and letting them mull over it, they’ve decided. They’re going all out and have agreed to Ferm Living’s Lines wallpaper around the whole room. I am so excited, it’s going to look amazeballs.
