Less twee more me!

 Just moved into a new much smaller house and need to put my own stamp on it......I love, LOVE, LOVE flowers...but thought that my bedroom was looking rather twee......So I decided to be brave and attempt a colour..... and not just any colour ........gulp....black!!!!!!
 All through the first coat I was thinking ....what have I done and a lesser mortal would have run screaming for the white paint...even the hubster walked in and went "Oh GOD!"
 But I stayed with my "vision" and was convinced that once I put my "bits" back it would look nice......
 And I think it has...has made both my mini bunting, and crocheted bunting and my floral pictures POP!

I hope it's worked.....and I hope you all like it too!!! It now looks a lot less like a flower fairy has come in and upchucked everywhere.....given it a more contemporary edge..... and it is only on one wall...the rest of the room is light and bright and white!


i love hearing from other bloggers and try to answer every comment x
