As the whole process ended up costing a lot more than it was supposed to, I haven't been able to go away this summer, so I decided to treat myself to a bedroom makeover instead. I've not really done anything to it since moving in 4 years ago, so it was starting to look a bit tired and definitely needed a bit more of my stamp on it.
I had been looking around for wallpapers for some time and had spotted some lovely designs in Laura Ashley which I had earmarked for a feature wall. However, my plans went slightly awry when I found the perfect paper. I am deeply ashamed to admit this, but I saw it adorning the walls of the girls' bedroom in the Geordie Shore house! Yes, the backdrop to their sordid nights of debauchery was the wallpaper of my dreams.
After a bit of scouring of the internet, my friend google found the paper for me, and although it nearly tripled the budget of my Laura Ashley designs, my heart was set. I colour-matched the background to get a Dulux paint mixed up for the other walls and was good to go.
So, after a couple of days of hard-decorating, all done by my fair hand (I really am the wallpapering pro these days), here is the finished article, my beautiful, blissful, blue boudoir!
