Just like clothing fashions, home fashions change too. When I bought my first house many years ago the trend had gone away from wallpapers and was very much about painting your walls to add personality to a room. Now wallpaper and wallcovers are very fashionable again and they are perfect for hiding less than perfect walls.
We have a few projects planned for our home over the next 12-18 months or more so, as and when our finances allow for it. We will be knocking out the wall between our kitchen and dining room to make a large open plan family kitchen/diner. This means the red wall from my kitchen which I love very much and my striped wall from the dining room will be no more so I will need to rethink our kitchen decor which means I get to choose some lovely new wallpaper. I have been looking at Wallcover.com and their extensive range of wallpapers to suit every taste and design.
Our next project will be to sort out the boys bedroom as they aren’t babies anymore so I need to update their beds and their walls. I really like this wall mural. It’s called Adventure and I can imagine how looking at this each night before they go to sleep could spark great bedtime stories of magical far off places. Where will the balloon take us tonight?
The plan for the playroom will be my next priority. Now that the Beans are getting older they are almost too big to play in the playroom together and so they tend to prefer to spend time in their own bedrooms leaving the playroom basically just a storage facility. I’m hoping to relocate their toys either to their bedrooms or to new homes and claim the playroom as my office. For the past 4 years my office has been the dining room table which generally means meals are taken squashed around the small kitchen table. I saw this Bird’s Eye View of London paper and would love to have this in my office. In Feng Shui terms cityscapes, particularly night Cityscapes showing light reflected in water are perfect for career growth and I do have a bit of a ‘thing’ for all things London anyway.
