Inspired by: Girls Rooms

Already a very proud Aunty to a beautiful boy I found out Saturday that my sister is up the duff with a daughter.  My niece!  As a Mumma to twin boys I am absolutely delighted & cannot wait to shower said wee girl with love & darling little things.   Thoughts have turned to how we can turn my sisters spare room into a space fit for the proverbial princess and I have gathered these beautiful looks for inspiration.  Cute as a Button.  Pretty as a picture.  Sugar & Spice and all things nice.

Colour Coded: Pink

I know, I know, Pink.  Quite possibly the most polarising colour of them all, mostly thought of as a romantic & feminine tone that most men (I know) instantly recoil at décor wise.

It doesn’t always have to be used in a whimsy & shabby chic girly way though – a flash of neon pink is so hot right now.  Look, at the end of the day you’ll love it or you’ll hate it or be in two minds about it – like I am.  One thing I know for sure  – if you use this rosy tint use it in moderation.  From the brightest magentas to the palest blushes I have found some treatments of pink I could definitely live with.
