Navy and white

bedroom

Flipping through an issue of Ideal Home there was a photograph of a home office with the most incredible navy blue paint colour on the walls. I instantly needed to use this colour and after very little begging, was allowed to plan the bedroom for the new house around the colour.

Secretly my favourite thing about this board is the little bedside cabinet. It’s old fashioned but more importantly it looks like one of the naughty little cabinets in Mary Poppins that make adorable noises.

The wooden name sign was an etsy find and was my present to my husband on our wedding day. My next mission may be to visit a few junk shops to buy some old blue and white china as I continue to collect fabric for the navy and white quilt.

London calling

 hallwayboard

Even though the paperwork for the new house drags on, my decorating plans are steaming forward. Fingers crossed we’ll be able to move in a few months.

My most recent planning project for the house has been the front hallway. It’s a long thin hallway but it’s very bright. So much of the decor in the new house will be understated that we both fancy having a bit of fun in this space. We’ve decided to focus the hallway around a giant print we have of a routemaster bus. I can’t wait for my custom etsy order to arrive which will pull the whole wartime London look together.

One day…

…I would like a secret passageway in the house so I can pretend I’m in Hogwarts or going through a wardrobe to Narnia…

hallway decor

So simple but elegant and it displays the images/memories they treasure, plus there’s a bench. I’m a sucker for wooden benches…
