Pink Floral Room Inspiration

Hi everyone!

Over the weekend I decorated my room and oh boy was it hard work.

My family had gone camping and I couldn’t because of work commitments. So I was working 10 to 7 on Saturday and 9 to 6 on Sunday… and decided to completly gut and decorate my room- pure stupidity.

Lesson’s learnt:

  1. Preparation (much to my disgust) is key
  2. Moving to University meant I have double the amount of ‘stuff’- which happens to need to be out back into my room. Which, unlike my wardrobe, has not grown.
  3. If you want perfection- pay someone else.

Skills:

  1. I learnt to man up a lil bit- crying in a built in wardrobe because you can’t take the lid off the paint is not productive. Especially crying on the phone to your Dad.
  2. How to wash paint out of your hair.
  3. I figured out how to avoid getting paint in you eyes and mouth- step as far away as possible.

At the end of the day, I can honestly say that I would be happy never painting another room again. It makes me miserable, tired and put my relationship to the test! But it does look very nice now and I am very pleased.

I painted it a Dulux White Blossom pink colour, which is a very subtle, not too childish, pink. Here are some of the plans I have for it!

I am loving all things flamingo at the moment, but I also love cactus’- I’m hoping to include both features, without it looking bonkers. I love the whole design side of these things, but its safe to say I’m not a interior painter… actually I suck at it!

Side note: All of the above can be found on Not on the Hightstreet- My all time favourite!
