The Start……

I’ve been playing with ideas for the boys shared room for a few months now, but it is one of the things at the top of my ‘to do’ list over the holidays.  Get the thoughts out of my head and start to plan and shop in preparation of the boys 1.  a new room design & 2.  the boys sharing a room (hmmmm not too sure how that is going to go!).

Here are a few ideas/inspiration pics that I’m leaning towards.  Yes, it will be quite bold and graphic and grown up but whilst I still have say over what goes in their room, this is what I’m going for!

So on that note….this is my last day for 2012!  Over the holidays, I am going to read lots of magazines, catch up on lots of blogs and generally just laze around.

I have had an amazing year with lots of opportunities and have been able to work with lovely clients and I know that 2013 is going to be just as good (I have a few things in the pipelines which are quite exciting!).

See you in 2013!

Recent Designs

Last month I had the pleasure of working with a busy mum of 2 (with #3 on the way who was due in November) AND the family was moving into their brand new home about the same time as well! 

The challenge with this job was to create 2 rooms which baby #3 (a little boy) could fit into and have his own special space in both his big sister and big brothers rooms.  I used yellow as a base for both rooms (and bubs space) so it all blends in!

I can’t wait to see photos of the rooms completed!

I know, it’s been a while…..have you missed me?!

I thought I would share with you some adventures that have been happening in our house in the lead up to Christmas.  We have joined the ‘Elf on the Shelf’ party and our Elf, Elfred, has been a hit!  Initially Hugh hated him…..he told me to put him away and ‘”I don’t want to look at him” on the first day, but since then he’s become a regular (and popular) figure!

It’s been 16 days now (he arrived on the last day of November) and to be honest….I’m starting to struggle with ideas, which is why I’m posting mine so far…hopefully some inspiration to anyone else lacking time/ideas!
