A Cosy Corner
Well that'll teach me to go harping on about Spring ... it's freezing! Back to grey skies, warm woollies and blazing fires. Doesn't sound too bad really.
So instead of posting photos of early blooms, I thought I'd show you a glimpse of our bedroom.
I'm having one of those days when all I can think of is going back to bed, hence, perhaps,the choice of room. I went with my daughter to collect our French exchange student at gone midnight last night and then couldn't fall asleep until the wee small hours. My dreams of waking early, laying the breakfast table and presenting our guest with warm croissants, hot chocolate and fresh blooms on the table went out of the window! There's always tomorrow...
We've yet to decide on a paint colour in this room so it's white again for the moment. We need something that retains the light as it is such a naturally bright room and has a very calm feel to it. Any suggestions? We pulled up the old blue carpet that we inherited when we moved in and it has really improved the room, without making it feel cold.
I love floral prints and eiderdowns, the old ones with holes in that leave feather trails are used in the garden in the summer, not sure who enjoys them most - us or the cats. The girls have some in their rooms and love snuggling under them at bedtime.
Talking of cats, this one seems to have the right idea ...
