Finishing touches...

We added the finishing touches to the living room today. Before we moved in i decorated it in warm browns and creams to make it cosy enough for us to settle into.........since that has been and gone it was time to put our stamp on our home :) Knowing what im like for bargain hunting you will know that most of it is either carboot sale finds or sale/discounted items. I still need more pictures for the walls but that will all come in time - give me a chance, the bootsales have only just started ;) The walls are a pale apple mist colour, the accents of pink are picked up around the room in the cushions etc. The room isnt that big so it still needs to be cosy yet not cluttered so its a hard balance. Excuse the fire, it will be changed eventually!! lol

Mum is coming for a couple of days tomorrow and shes bringing the boys back home - the eldest 2 have been there 2 weeks for the Easter holidays! Cant wait to have all the family back together for a proper Sunday dinner tomorrow :D :D


  1. Beautiful! So glad you are settled in! I sure hated to hear about your broken dishes this week. So sad.... Love your soft colors!

  2. Very nice, you have done very well indeed! We have a fire place to go in too and lots of things like artex to get rid of and new floors in every room! These things take time though don't they especially when, like you, I'm looking for bargains! :-) There's no rush though, in our last house we did it all in a week and then changed our minds. You have to live in a house for a bit and find out what suits it - that's my excuse anyway!

  3. looks gorgeous Debbie i love the wallpaper :-)
    nice for you to have all the children back together I bet !

  4. It certainly does look a cosy room Debbie.

    Have a fab day with the boys back home.
