New Colours...

Time for a change up about to order a new sofa for the living room, we've had ours for about 8/9 years now and the leather on it is looking a bit worse for wear, especially on the two seats that seem to  be used the most.  I have decided that brown is SO out now {fed up with the neutrel colour pallete these days} so am going for Charcoal....."charcoal is the new brown!" haha!  This also means, obviously, that we get to re-decorate the living/dining rooms!! yay! *insert happy dance*  

I am loving the blue/green that's in season, albeit probably the end of the season, {but then I am always slightly behind with things!!}  We have decided on a gorgeous modern look paper - Arthouse Opera Retro Leaf - it has the blues and greens in as well as the charcoal and light greys too, double yay!! *insert another happy dance here!*

With this change up in mind and the thought of a nice charcoal sofa, I felt I wanted to extend this change to the blog AND, hopefully, link up the website with the same look.  I had to move my domain name from Windows Live Small Business as they were closing their site, so am using my domain name through is a work in progress {like my new venture in photography!} but with a bit of luck, over the next few months, all will become clear ;o)

I have gone with a mustardy feel to marry up with the charcoal on the blog/website....let me know what you think {good or bad}, it's the only way I can gauge what's pleasing to the viewer, :o)

We've had a busy two weeks with one thing and another....but that I will leave for another post, soon.

The weekend is here, yay! What are your plans? Would love to here....


hello gorgeous xxx


  1. Love that retro leaf - might have to nab your idea in our soon to be redecorated hallway. By the way your blog header makes me smile so much - what fantastic popping colours!

    1. thank you Becky! The paper is even better in "real life"...just popping it on the chimney breast this time round with possibly the blue painted in the recesses....thanks for the header comment too! bless you ;o) xxx

  2. I love charcoal it goes with everything :-) I like mustard too, my favourite colour at the moment....can't read it too well against the white background though :-(

  3. I think it all looks great; fresh and modern!
    Your photos are just amazing!!!
