Vintage decorating


I've been decorating this past week with vintage wallpaper...as you do.

It's a concept I've been mulling over for ages now - a kind of patchwork with paper as a visual display on a wall.

So when the girls swapped rooms last Summer and with Florrie turning eight last Monday the baby room that has now become hers wasn't really expressing much - if anything - of her quirky, mildly eccentric, boho growing personality.

It's with many thanks to the lovely Ada Bea at Vintage Sheet Addict I managed to achieve the look I had in my head, but was finding so hard to create in reality. 

But as it is with siblings the smallest wanted to be just like her big sister.  So what initially was intended as an early birthday surprise on one wall has now spread across two bedrooms and two walls...and I'm so glad it does.

The effect has transformed both bedrooms in a way I can only describe as super chuffed!
