Vintage Inspired!

Hello!.. It's been awhile.. But I'm back.. It's been a rough month.. But looking forward to better times in 2012.

Vintage decoration Oh Dee Doh

Vintage Toys : Vroom petite details.

Seriously.. Love the bed, & dresser!

Yellow Cot.. just gorgeous!

I've been looking for colour inspiration for a friend of mine.. and came across these beauties that I've always loved.  I love nothing more than taking an old piece & giving it a new lease of life and these rooms have done just that. Great if you on a budget too. You can maybe splurge on some fabric & go hunting at markets or garage sales for the great chair, sideboard or wardrobe!

Happy Thursday! x

I love the colour scheme in this room.. perfect for older kids sharing! and so easy to add a hint of colour as they change what they are into!

Boys Rooms.

I'm trying to decide on wallpaper for my little man.. I can't decide.. I like to many.. Why is it I can choose for others.. and not for me???.. I'm hopless!..

I'm a little obsessed with stripe carpet too.. What a stunning idea! Here are a few rooms I have been drooling over. Today Cooper goes in for his ear & nose surgery. I haven't slept for 2 days with worry.. I will be so glad when today's over. This is my distraction this morning.

Have a great rest of the week!

I have always loved Turquoise, but never used it my place.

How lovely is this combination.. Here are a few pictures of a concept I put together for my firend's daughter..

Today we are off to find "bit's" for Cooper's room.. He is getting another new room.. ( I know!.. seriously!.. I'm shocking.. No.... we were to move.. and originally I had planned for the back room to be his.. it's bigger & will serve as a playroom as well. He is now getting my Antique bed as It didn't sell either.. So new room here we come... Again!!!!! )
