I wrote this post ages ago but realised when I was looking back that I hadn’t actually published it so here goes.
The second room to be decorated in our new house has been Amelie’s. As soon as we said we were moving house she was so excited because she could have a “pink bedroom”. Pink would not have been my choice of colour, but then it’s not my bedroom. I wish I had remembered to take some before photos. You would not believe it is the same bedroom. We brought a tonne of furniture with us from the old house that was totally overbearing and unsuitable for a little girls bedroom. After lots of persuasion on my part Mike finally agreed to re-home the hideous 1960′s brown lacquered wardrobe and replace it with a new much smaller white one from Ikea.
After some discussion with Amelie we settled on painting just one wall pink and the remaining white. I just felt that the pink had the potential to be slightly overbearing. I made Amelie’s quilt for her a couple of years ago. I love the fact that she will hopefully keep it for years to come. I am determined to try and find time this winter to make Harriet one too.
I am really pleased with the end result. Again a bit similar to Harriets bedroom we ditched a load of crap and it is just so much easier to keep clean and tidy.
