A Bit Of Cath Kidston

"Inspiration for decorating"

It all started when I ordered a bookcase for the snug, I thought, this room could do with decorating  it's still the bog standard magnolia that the builder's painted it,

and it needs "prettying" up a bit! 

I thought we could paint the walls white and paper the main wall in Cath's  "Antique Rose" wallpaper,

so  off we went to York to get the paper when I saw that they had bedding to match,  that would be nice for the bedroom  as both rooms are next to each other.

I didn't want white walls in there  so I got  some paint samples and I was drawn to the different shades  blue,

this is the one I like,

and in the meantime at a vintage fair I saw this lovely old  sign

 a gorgeous pink feather eiderdown which I snapped up immediately,

a bargain at £15,

and a length of bunting that has been cut from the lace on an old tablecloth,

I wish I'd got two now as I could have put one in each room.

The bedroom is magnolia with plum coloured bedding and pictures so it will be nice to have some colour in there,

this is as it is now

the en suite is through the door on the right, we've added coving and painted the walls white and it already had the  pearly mosaic tiles in there.

I can see us being busy this weekend!!
