~The~ new~ bedroom~

Please come on my newly decorated bedroom,i have been meaning to show you it for the past few weeks. All the doors in snowdrop cottage are old latch doors...this one took some major stripping,all the years of paint over the beautiful old latches..we took them right back & painted them black again as they would have been.
My new rug called shoreline as it is all the colours you would find along the shore & as we know i have a love for anything coastal which is the colour theme i have used. No carpets in this house..coir through out.

I have always wanted a iron bed with a bed head at the bottom as well as the top if you know what i mean?!!

The ceiling light isnt a new edition we have had that some time it came from laura ashleys,the canvas on the wall i had made up from a picture i took of a beach we always walk too in wonderful cornwall..some of you may recognise it? In the recess i have a large seagrass trunk which houses all my towels & linen,it also doubles up as a bedside table!

The stripey bed linen is from marks & sparks again i love the colours,the check blanket is from a lovely little shop called great danes.
My blind i had made in this fab fabric,the boat is made by a lovely lady in polperro cornwall in the arts foundation,you must pay them a visit if you are ever in polperro.
Of course my funky pink roberts radio & newly fitted cast iron radiator ready for the winter.

These rush storage baskets are great for under the bed & they look good too..from tesco's direct.

Trio of funky fish...

The sea sweet,i have seen some more i like as i like a cluster of cushions. i will have to start saving my pennies!!

This dear little box with rope handle & slate heart is from christine at the seagarden in portscatho you can find christine's blog on blogs that i follow.

I love this cushion i got this a few years ago from fowey it sits on a cream chair with alfie bear.

Hanging on the wardrobe door...

My love of driftwood...

On the dressing table sits a vintage magpie bunnie 'olivia' made by the lovely nicky again can be found on blogs that i follow.

This vintage celery glass is ideal for displaying my shells & i found this lovely creamic treasures label.

Oohh & my driftwood heart,i had wanted one of these to hang above our bed for a while & i found this beauty in a favourite gallery of mine in sennen cornwall called the capstan gallery again a must to visit...all the work is produced locally which makes it even more special.

Would'nt we all like to wake up to blue skies? This was found when we went to norfolk it sits on top of the wall mirror.
It has a lovely relaxing feel to the room is a pleasure to wake up to in the morning & the new bed is soooooooo comfy!!
Well thats passed some time away without having to watch the dreaded h has gone down the pub with his brother & a friend to watch it in peace without me moaning on & asking stupid questions!!
Have a great weekend....bye for now. xx
