Way back in beautiful balmy August I posted some pictures of Megs empty room, as she flew off to her own little home sweet home.
Well, it's taken a while but .... the room is done !
Just in time as we had visitors this weekend.
A little peep through the door...
and tah-dah .....
I am so happy with how it has all come together. The colours are warm and cosy, and in keeping with it being a spare room I've given it a bit of holiday feel with spotty bunting, seaside cottages and flying ducks !
I fell in love with this beautiful little row of seaside houses when I saw it in Notonthehighstreet, and the muted but warm colours were exactly what I was looking for.
The ducks I added because - well, just because ! I saw them and loved them and knew they had to fly off in the distance over the cottages.
Not the best of pictures, but you get the idea.
I had a lovely Saturday afternoon a couple of weekends ago making the curtains and I am really pleased with how they turned out.
I made tie tabs for the tops of the curtains and this was definitely the bit that took the longest as I made 48 in total, but I'm glad I persevered as I love the look the ties give to the finished curtains.
The room didn't need much else adding to it, but I couldn't resist adding the rhubarb and ginger candle.
It smells wonderful when you open the door.
The thing I love the most in the room though is the vintage eiderdown that I bought months ago with this room in mind. It makes a very satisfying crunchy, feathery sound when you squish it and it looks so cosy you just want to climb underneath it.
So, this weekend with visitors to stay and the first real Autumny weather of the year we mostly sat in front of this...
just chatting and doing a bit of this...
