Getting Organized

I love looking at well-organized spaces. Maybe it's because I'm a Virgo or maybe it's just because I struggle to keep my own place that way, for more than a day due to recent hectic routines! Do you think if I look long enough at these lovely pictures my own rooms and shelves and whatnot will magically transform into super-organized?

I dream of Jeannie!!!

Ikea Trollsta Sideboard

I have been coveting Ikea's Trollsta sideboard for quite some time now, I wanted to get the yellow one as soon as I laid my eyes on it, however I didn't, hoping I would get over it. But here I am after so many weeks still loving it. I don't mind IKEA for little things and for kids stuff and ofcourse for shelving etc but I usually stay away from buying such statement peices from there. I need a sideboard for my hallway and I would be hanging all my framed art on the wall just above the sideboard. Would also be updating the wallpaper, so there would be a lot going on there, maybe if I get the black trollsta there's less chance of me waking up the next morning thinking I shouldn't have! (Yes I'm still on topic)

I will use Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis Citrine wallpaper if I do endup buying the black one.

However if someone silly(me) gets the yellow one then i'll be using the Florence Broadhurst Stampede wallpaper.

Sensible part of my brain is telling me to go for a simple sideboard (hopefully antique) and paint it with a nice bright colour like these ones.

What do you think?

Colour Me Happy

I am loving the use of colour in this beautiful farmhouse. I think pops of yellow can brighten up any space!

Gorgeous girl's rooms!

I am planning on re-decorating my daughter's room. Her first room/nursery had a very soft colour scheme of white and butter yellow, which had a drastic transformation to a toddler room decorated in tones of bright red, pink and orange. Now we are ready for a light colour scheme again. I have already bought an antique white cast iron bed and a peachy pink wall paper plus a white expedit for storage (hiding away junk). I have lots of other ideas/diy projects lined up for her room which I would love to share with you all once I get started. We might be moving houses hence I am just at the planning/decorating -mentally stage yet.
Here are a few images of girls rooms which I am loving at the moment!

Crate Storage

I am sorry for my lack of posts in the past few days, have just been very busy. Am hoping to start posting regularly now.

These pictures have inspired me to go hunting for crates. I think a crate storage unit would look so good on a decked outdoor area, maybe alongside a daybed.
Also I am very excited to receive my first blog award by 7 Year Wedding.

And a huge thanks to Party Perfect for featuring my daughter's third birthday party.
