From blue to cream and green...

Hope the sun is shining where you are!

Hello everyone☺

I've been busy decorating. 
Not for Easter yet... 
just an overall overhaul in the lounge room.

You all know I'm a blue girl,


I decided to change the colour scheme.

  Lots of creams, whites and a hint of green.

Before this makeover, we had a really colourful IKEA rug on the floor. This woven one, also from IKEA, suits the natural colours of creams and browns so much better. We used to have three of them on the concrete floor before we put the click-in floor in years and years ago, so it feels fun to reuse one of them - the other two had sadly been stained by water - mould was actually growing in the weave as well! That's subtropical climate for you... Everything stored away in an outdoor shed needs to be waterproofed! 

Cream, green and a hint of blue - perfect choice of curtains for our 'new' lounge room. A pretty wooden tray on top of a Battenburg runner on the storage box... My hubby and I love having candles lit at night. It's so cozy and très romantique, n'est pas? We've had some cooler nights lately, so these rustic tealight holders are perfect to place on the tray and use at night. 

Floor runner, cushions and blankets are all from IKEA. The crochet blanket on the back of the couch is an eBay purchase. It's so versatile - I've used it as a bed spread and as a tablecloth! Love the big flower pattern.


A change is as good as a holiday... ☺

I'm loving our new lounge room!
I could spend hours here reading books... but the housework would pile up then...
