One of the things I am loving about Blogging For Scrapbookers is the way it's making me think differently about things I thought I'd already decided! I wasn't planning to use this blog to share anything other than the things I create BUT after today's prompt I've had a rethink. I'm going to share a room project with you. Well, after all, it is still something I'm going to create....... kind of........
When we moved to this house three and a bit years ago, it'd had the Anne Maurice treatment (remember her, the House Doctor?) So every wall in the house was cream. Every carpet in the house was cream. There was no colour. Anywhere.
Now, I like neutrals, don't get me wrong, but really...... with three kids? We've added our little sprinkles of colour here and there and completely refitted the kitchen and one of the bathrooms, but there is one place I've been aiming to get to for a while and planning little schemes for in my mind, a place where I can really let loose with the colour: the family room. It really ought to be called the kid's room because dh and I don't actually venture in there that often. It's the place where the kids take their friends and play on the Wii or watch TV. Their computer is in there too and all the board games as well as lots of the children's books.
So, whilst I have been planning, all I've actually managed so far is to put up new curtains. I have bought a few items of inspiration though:
