I cannot believe the response to our monochrome bedroom. I am just so in love with it and obviously it was very risky but delighted how it turned out. I suppose painting a room black is a big no no normally but I had a vision. When I have a vision I run with it and this is exactly what I did with the room. Sean was sceptical at parts of it but he let me do my thing and well it most definitely has paid off. I absolutely love interiors and putting everything together. Seeing the end result makes me so happy. We only have two more things in that room to hang up and then it’s finished.
My next few things interior bits are small things like find a ceiling light and cushions for our sitting room and then just wait on the bookcase to be built. We need to do a job on the hanging light we got from Amazon for our kitchen as when it came, it looked very different to the phone but we wanted to keep it and make it our own. We want to get these sorted before we start on Lily’s new room next month as that will be another big project. I’m dying to get our front/back garden sorted too but with baby number two arriving in July we will probably have to wait.
