GIRLS' ROOM


GIRLS' ROOM
Originally uploaded by The Happy Turtle
Hello,
We are in! We have just moved to our new home. Lots and lots of work to do. There are tons of things left behind to be sorted out by the end of the month, but it is good to know we are in a place we like and we can call our own.
This is the girls' room. We have painted it in Turquoise and Bleached Stone by Cath Kidston. The wallpaper is Chintz Floral by Cath Kidston. The little fabric boxes are from Ikea.
Choosing the color scheme was not obvious, as most people expect pink or the new rage in this part of the world: orange and green, so 90s.
Yesterday the girls asked me, you really had everything figured out, mom, didn't you?
Well I have been (day)dreaming for so many years, I pretty much did!
Many many thanks to God and to everyone who has provided inspiration and guidance, whether they know it or not.
See you soon with more pictures as we settle in.

Happy move to you! Those can be traumatic.

This is a lovely blog. You are right about being light and gentle on ourselves.
I admire your sense of style and I am glad you mention being a Christian.
