Chloe’s bedroom is a bit ‘meh’ it is kind of half done. When we moved in two years ago, she genrously gave her cabin bed to Dylan who had had a double bed since he was little. Therefore she had some new furniture and the walls were all repainted. But most of the bits in her room, curtains, light fitting and mirror were all hand me downs scrabbled together. As a ten year old at the time she was neither wanting a childs room yet was not ready for the teenage style either.
It generally lacked identity.
However we have really landed on our feet with a fabulous campaign from Feather and Black this month. If you don’t know Feather and Black (your not alone as I didn’t) they sell luxury bedroom furniture and fittings, including bedding and accessories. They gave us a choice of furniture plus £150 to give a room a makeover. Chloe literally squeeled with delight when I told her and promptly took over my laptop whilst she looked for inspiration.
Therefore Chloe and I are tackling this challenge together. She has decided on a red and white colour scheme as it is a classic look that doesn’t age. Along with four other bloggers including my lovely friend Molly at Mothers Always Right we will be sharing our before, during and after pictures. Each of our final pictures are going head to head to win £500 to spend at Feather and Black. I already have my eye on one of their wooden beds so when I do our big reveal I will be asking for votes on the facebook page! The picture with the most votes wins.
This is our starting point. The before makeover look.
See what I mean? it just lacks a bit of ‘wow’. This will be the last time Chloe’s room gets a makeover and ideally needs to see her through the teenage phase. The piece of furniture that will become the focal point of the room is this beautiful Olivia blanket box.
I will be working on the room this week and will blog our ‘work in progress’ pictures and plans.
