It is rather novel to have a completely empty room, no furniture to move, no carpet to cover, just a blank canvas and the reason for this is that we took our 1930's bungalow, lopped off the roof, went up and out (back extension) and changed it into a house, sounds simple but it has been anything but! It has been years in the doing as we have had to stop twice for lengthy periods and one of the many reasons I started the blog was to get on with it and get it all finished.
I'm still deciding/finalising the wall colour (yes I know, she's coming today!), I love pastels and I love blue and would have one shade or another flowing from room to room if I could. And it seems that that pastels are making their way back, although they've never left my palette. We've done grey in other rooms in shades from light to battleship but now want softer colour hues.
Aqua is another absolute favourite, I love pale tones which create a light and airy space. I want to create peace and serenity with softer colours but also with a clean, crisp, fresh feel. I am still also toying with the idea of painting the whole room in a shade of white and accenting the room with colour and accessories, although this room is south facing and gets an amazing amount of light already and I really don't want to wear sunglasses to bed!
I've made a paint mood board of my colour choices, decision time!
And once finally finished, this is definitely a room with a view, taken in the summer but every day takes my breath away, the view makes all the hard work and delays worth it and you can see where my love of blue comes from!
