Well it's time to say goodbye to pink and grey so we are ending with this 'delightful decor' post to hopefully inspire you to see 'grey' in a different light!

I wish that we had a 'before' picture to show you but alas you will just have to make do with the 'after'...

This bedroom was really tired and grubby and had been used as a storage space for over 3 years so opting for a much lighter colour scheme we decided to give it a re-vamp. We used some lovely shades from Farrow & Ball to create a light and airy feel.

- Ceiling and far wall in Wimborne White No239
- Feature wall in Cornforth White No228

A gallery effect using old mirrors and old pictures looks great 
on a feature wall, we got these from a local antique shop and 
the whole lot cost less than £40 and look amazing!

This one cost a little bit more it was £20 it probably dates back to the turn of the century, the beveled edge is beautiful and the glass is really thick with only a tiny bit of pitting.

This peony canvas is a real eye catcher it is taken from a photograph I took a few years ago and did a bit of photoshop magic on it and created this!

And finally this beautiful cranberry glass lamp shade is from the 1920's it was from the same lovely antique shop as the mirrors and cost £18 the lamp fitting is something that I was going to throw out as the original shade got broken years 
ago but I think they work beautifully together!

We hope you have enjoyed this post and now feel inspired and equipped with the details of previous February posts to get creative and start decorating!!
