Our New Retro Sitting Room

Ok Ok! so we have gone a bit CrAzY with this look! but I so love being able to buy anything that I like and throwing it all together!

All colours pop out at me when I am shopping around town and now whatever we buy it all goes together with the look…
how now we are incorporating yellow and orange!….colours that I would
previously not have in my colour scheme…sticking only to reds, blues
and pinks etc!

 Keeping our French Enamel, shutters, Cath Kidston bits and whimsy pieces and adding retro dimensions like my blue golly, eames chairs and coloured glass…you might even be able to spot a few little creatures of the forest in this mix too…(look closely!)

 It feels so warm and cosy in our sitting room…looking around at all our bits and pieces…adds smiles to our faces…and what with all the happy bright colours as well…I am sure this only adds to our happy nature 😉

I am loving this new look of ours….what do you think?

    Colourful and fun I love it. The picture of the lady with the green face reminds me of my childhood home, we had Tretchikoff's Green Lady in our sitting room.
