So, this is what it looks like........

This is the wardrobe that we had made - because none of the furniture shops could deliver in less than six weeks, and its nicer! it was literally one centimetre narrower than the alcove it was to go into..... getting that up the stairs and in place was a challenge, the radiator had to come off the wall along with all the skirting, but now its in place, never again to move! (and yes, we're still talking!)

Not a great picture of the blind, but you get the idea, simple fold up blind - very easy to make and as there is no gathering uses very little material.

This is the blue chest that I HAD to have! thanks to the new motorway it is a three hour drive from here to Ikea, it was well worth it to bring this home. I am now an expert at assembling flat pack furniture!

The bedside tables are Ikea too (no point going all that way for just one thing!) the patchwork quilt was made a couple of months ago, its full of mistakes, but I love it!

So that is pretty much that! I know its kind of girly but I have a very patient partner so I'm making the most of it!!!!

You can never have too many cushions.......

  1. How lovely! You two are very talented- that wardrobe is beautiful. And I love how you pulled the room together, it looks pretty and restful. I love that Polly is hanging over the bed! Great job. xo

  2. This is gorgeous. It looks like a restful haven from the world and a perfect place to display all your craftwork. Time to add interior designer to your already extensive CV (and Tims too). Enjoy.
