Interior Designing

Ok, so it's not sewing but it is along the same theme of sewing, I think, in that it uses combinations of colour, patterns, fabrics etc to create a unique look.

We have just moved into a rental that is nice -- I know! Crazy huh -- and I hope we can be here for a while. The decor of the house is very neutral which is great because you can't change a rental so if the curtains and paint etc sucks you are stuck with it. So even though we can't paint to personalise our home, the neutral decor gives me a very nice blank canvas to add some personal touches.

I have been collecting images of looks I love for children's rooms. The problem is. My eldest is five and has a mind of her own. So it isn't really fair of me to decorate her room to my taste but her taste right now is...different to mine. She wants a Hannah Montana doona cover and posters of Justin Bieber and hot pink and purple. I want vintage, floral, hand-made, classic, sea greens and ombre details.

Anyway. I hope we can come to some kind of agreement that gives her room to explore her own tastes and interests and me room to...ummm...impose my tastes and interests on her ;)

Here are some pictures I'm loving right now for ideas for her room.

Most of it she is probably on board with but in different colours. Fortunately Amy Butler has released a wallpaper range:

I think Miss Five and I can come to some kind of arrangement.And let's not forget I have a sewing room/home office to decorate!! And another daughter who isn't old enough to speak ;)
