Mummy & Daddy's Bedroom

After giving Mia's bedroom a make over, I thought it was about time we got ours sorted out. Lets face it, we spend the most time in there especially in the winter months and we had an opportunity to splash some paint on the walls and this is the result. 

Grey/silver seems to be very in at the moment and goes great with all the monochrome pieces I wanted. That said, the room isn't all that big so I felt we needed something on this feature wall to make it "pop" and keep the room light. I found this beautiful frame from Ikea and then filled some white Ikea photo frames with some of my favourite black and white images.

Our feature wall is in the colour Toy Soldier whilst the other three are in a lighter silvery white called Morning Song both by Valspar. I loved this paint, it went on so easy and a little went a long way.

The large centre piece on the wall is from Ikea and inside is a wallpaper sample from Homebase. 
Sticking with the monochrome theme, I bought the Ikea Kallex cube in black with black and white fabric boxes.

Summer Roundup!

So the holidays are over and the school routine is back, and whilst I feel a little sad the holidays were over too quick, I'm pleased we have another year before the 'real' school years kick in. I always seem to go a little quiet on here over the summer, we've just been having too much fun! We got a couple of weeks in to the holidays, and I started feeling we hadn't done a lot but now I look through the photographs turns out we did a shit ton! No wonder I feel I could sleep for a week.
So here goes, my summer round up.

Finishing off the holidays on a mega high with my little girly winning the Child Model Of The Year 2016 competition in her age category! Well done Princess.
