• Hi lovelies! I hope all is well with you! Yay, i’m so enjoying making some progress on our space! We’ve got curtains in our living room now, our headboard is being delivered today, as is our ottoman for the bathroom – i’m so excited to see how it turns out. I’ve changed my mind about the curtains we were going to have in our bedroom – i wanted white but i think i’m going for grey or am ombre grey look – i’m going to look and see what i can find this week. I’ve also decided i want to add some wallpaper to the mix. This is my favourite part of renovating and makeovers – adding the layers! We have discovered that our room is absolutely freezing so we also need to get a wall heater but i am worried about the cost – i’ve heard they’re not nearly as economic as they claim to be – anyone got any ideas? Oh, and i need to find some more cushions for the bed and some linen too. The Captain HATES cushions but i’m afraid he’s going to have to learn to live with them because i want a grown up bedroom!

    Here’s what i’ve been working off colour and feeling wise…can’t wait to show you what our own space is looking like…stay tuned…


    This is almost the exact grey I’ve gone for in our bedroom and bathroom and i’m loving it – it’s from Prominent Paints and the code is  NCS S 1005-R80B (click here to see a post i wrote on their grey paint series


    I would kill for an upholstered bench at the bottom of our bed but we don’t have enough space – the headboard however is deep buttoned and i am SO happy about that!

    We haven’t hung one picture in our home yet and i haven’t even thought about what we’re going to hang in our bedroom – we’ll get there.

      Love the option with the pink quilt.

      Could you do another post about finding interesting & affordable artwork here in SA? It’s a challenge.

      Love this post and yay for the grey linen bedding name Volpes (heaven!!) Are you re-covering your headboard in a grey- didn’t you have the most awesome teal
      Turquoise headboard ( can’t remember right now) and is it possible to easily
      Re-cover a deep
      Buttoned headboard ? Just wondered! Oh
      My I just love that pale pink shag /rug/throw whatever it’s called!!
