I am currently trying to get my house up to scratch. I have a newish home (3 years old) and whilst I LOVE it, the modern homes does lack that character that the Queenslanders seem to have. So for a while now I feel like our home has been a bit sparse and cold. So the kids are I are on it this week to make a difference. They are being very helpful and I am truly trying to embrace their creative ideas by finding new and interesting ways to steer them in MY decorative direction.
- Kids Rooms re-arranged - Check. Much more room for them now and a cosy book corner which they love. Maybe they will spend more time in there now. (Who said that? Really, so rude.)
- Lounge room re-arranged - Check. Instead of having my lounges pushed up against the walls I have positioned the lounges in the middle of the room, added a rug (an old ugly one which will be replaced, but we can roll with it for the moment) and in turn have created a very cosy, intimate lounge.
Next on the list:
- Toy Room..... do anything to make it look less of storage room and more of a room that the kids might actually want to play in. Again, maybe they will spend more time in there.
- Our bedroom ... again storage out, play in.
- More artwork......
So I am going to give into my bird obsession and cover my walls with bird artwork. I really love this quirky artwork from Prince Design UK. I am a big fan of block colours, but when you use block colours the key is texture. The embossing on these birds are what takes this from a simple cut out to really beautiful and eye catching. Prince Designs UK have a store on Etsy (we all love Etsy).
