As mentioned before, we have moved… a lot! And in every place we have lived we always made a point of decorating and making it feel like a home. But, for some reason, no matter where we lived we never seemed to focus on our own room. The place most people consider their sanctuary sat fairly empty and blank for us. I think the main reason for this was the fact we knew we wouldn’t be there forever, so what was the point? These words were never actually spoken but I assume that was our underlying feeling. We had bedroom furniture and a comfy bed, what more did we need?
Well, there’s a first time for everything! We OWN our house now and although once again, we know this is not our forever home, it is ours and it was time to make it feel like ours. When we first moved in we did make an attempt at it by taking a trip to IKEA and buying ourselves new bedroom furniture. Unfortunately, it didn’t go much further than poor Mr. Champagne spending hours on end fitting the 1,000’s of pieces together. (Maybe we have always been DIY people. We just never realized IKEA pieces made us this way!?).
With the decision that the entire house was being redone, it was exciting to know we were finally committed to making everything comfortable and ours, including our own bedroom!
We chose “The Tower of London” as the colour for all 3 bedrooms, which was darker and more grey than the “Grey Drizzle” but they accented each other well.

Hours of hard labour and a night spent sleeping in the middle of a freshly painted room. The results were once again, worth all of the hard work!
It is absolutely amazing what just a couple of coats of paint can do to a space. It was fresh, new and ready to be decorated!
Stay Tuned for final after pictures of all rooms completed!
