Our house, like most private rentals, is a feast of rather bland magnolia. Or maybe I should say, it was... We've started to redecorate, with our Landlord's permission of course, and after brightening our youngest's room up with a couple of coats of fresh 'apple white' paint the half-term has seen me whipping out the brushes and rollers again! This time it was the turn of our eldest's room.
After looking at the different paints and creating a few swatches with tester pots, Terror 1 settled on a beautiful pastel purple known as 'violet white.' My two gave me a hand in cleaning the walls ready for painting and then I began to turn the boring and grubby magnolia into a little purple haven. It looks lovely, both of their rooms do. They are such pretty colours that fill the room with green and purple whilst avoiding becoming too overbearing.
I have some rather ambitious plans for decorating our home but nobody got anything done without some absurd goals right? I'm hoping to have the entire house repainted by the Summer (that's the walls in all the rooms except my children's and the skirting boards, doors and kitchen ceiling if I can) and revamped with new furniture and accessories by the end of the year! It's quite a big goal and I'm not certain that we'll get it all crammed into this year alone...but we're going to give it our best shot! :)
