Decoration distraction

'Mummy when are the builders coming' - this is a question my daughter has been asking a lot lately. I feel like responding, with 'good question, now that the contract is finally signed it depends on when the permits come through'.

But for my four year old we count the sleeps (hopefully only about 30 more at most). And depending on her mood she is either really excited about having new rooms built and can't wait to show her friends, or on other days she gets really upset about the idea - 'I love our house the way it is, I don't want it to change'.

So I am trying to get her excited explaining how she is going to get a new room that she can help decorate. She loves to draw, paint and strangely enough move furniture around. Maybe a designer in the making?

And so we have started with some art work for her new room. Luckily for me, her favourite colours are red and blue, though I might have had a bit of influence on that. Decorating with red or blue candles, cushions and pictures against our white walls is fitting in with the French theme I love.


  1. A definite designer in the making! my little one's bedroom is red white and blue too. Thanks for visiting my blog! x

  2. Hope the whole building process goes as smooth as it can! It must be difficult for your daughter to understand whats happening. Love the painting. Looking forward to following your journey. Thank you for your visit to my blog and your comment - I love owls too!
    Enjoy your Sunday.

  3. A designer in the making - my fave colours too!

  4. gorgeous as inspiration for your colours!

  5. Sounds like she is following in someone's footsteps =-) I am sure she will like everyone have their days and wonder why we renovate and DIY but when she has her room she will LOVE IT. Good Luck!
