White Christmas Bedroom
Fri 21st, Dec, 2012
Helllooooo, a few quick snaps of the bedroom today, after convincing myself and pleasing my husband muchly that we would not have any more white, ruffles, Christmas decs, quilts (vintage or otherwise) or fairy lights for him to contend with while climbing into bed I decided stuff that idea and went in for the kill.
On that note, yesterday I was asked by a member of zee press (a lovely one too) how would I make this look of mine more masculine and how does my husband go with it?
Errrrm cough cough, this was pretty tough for me to answer and a strange one for someone who normally has much to say on vintage, coastal and beach…it wasn’t quite the situation where I could talk about favours really, but, heck, I did realise when asked this that I am rather lucky that actually Mr BC has about as much interest in decor and the colour of his bed linen as he has in shoes…and that would be not much…and that is how I get away with it…and certainly it is not a masculine look and don’t think I could stomach trying to give people ideas on how to achieve that….
…if then you want an abundance of white, ruffles, sparkle, vintage things and copious amounts of flowers in your life, well you must be willing to do all that it takes to achieve it….I am sure it’s clear how we do that? Enough said.
Which gives me full reign to crack open the lights, the ruffles and the white at any given chance and lead us women in the white crusade, and top it all off with a starfish for a coastal twist.
If they can watch football I can paint things white and add a ruffle.
Soooo, again in here just the draping of zee lights…most of these are from IKEA, though those on the wardrobe were last year or maybe the year before from BigW – they are kinda interlaced with pearls and quite pretty…
The armoire is not finished and I have the hump with her. Yep the girl I loved and stroked and positively salivated over when she first arrived is giving me hassle like a toddler and I am so not interested in that at this time of year, so rather than finishing her off, I chucked a string of lights over her top and plopped a stocking on her front…
That’s it from me people, I am making a cheesecake and if I get time I will blog it ‘cos it’s a BC special aptly named Eyes Shut Cheesecake, haha
See ya around
p.s how did those shoes get here? ;-)
