When I got back from the OASIS conference on Sunday, I had a lovely surprise from Mr Messy :-) He had painted the first coat real colour in New Child's bedroom :-) Although it doesn't look as muted and calm as I thought it would lol. Its like stepping into a marshmallow!!! I'm planning to do a swirly stencilled border, and have now decided to paint the short walls facing the camera with the same minty green. Hopefully that will break up the marshmallowness enough!!! I had been planning to put up Roman Blinds with dress curtains over the top, but I've changed my mind on that too. I'm going to keep it simple and just have the Roman Blinds in the fabric in the picture below (the one hanging at the back with small sprigs of pink flowers), which will again break up and (fingers crossed!) tone down the pink!!!
