My ceiling in my bedroom is yet another Artexed monstrosity, but add to that grey-white paint with added yellowy beige around the edges where the last person to wield a paintbrush missed, and unidentified dark marks splattered in places...
It isn't the most inspiring thing to wake up to.
Then, of course there are the yellowy-beige walls, again badly painted, you can see what ever was painted underneath through it. I have a feeling some of the previous inhabitants took to spray painting parts of the house.
And, then, my pet hate. Bad gloss work.
The more I think about the state of my house, and some of the reasons why (some very naughty tenants before us) I feel sorry for it. I want to make it lovely, not just for myself, but for the actual house! Is that a little odd?
Here are a hand full of pictures I like. This is an attempt to find what sort of style I actually want in a bedroom!
Isn't this image great? A little annoying perhaps. In that, I wouldn't want to wake up with tassels and fluff in my face... I have had this image stored for a little while on my computer (digital scrap book) and have been trying to think of a way that I could achieve it using either my scarves or necklaces, but I'm not sure that either would create the right effect. In fact, I have tried to do something similar with scarves already, and it just looked a mess!
Well, then. Is it safe to assume I'd like a pale room with one great accent colour, some great texture and pattern?
(Many images, but not all from www.housetohome.co.uk, Unfortunately I don't have a record of where they all came from.)
