A Guided Tour... Odds & Sods

Or hallway/office & bathroom to be more precise.

Hallway - I love the sunshine-ness of our hallway.  It's light, bright and airy and never fails to put a smile on my face.  I fell in love with this typographic print of the UK and had to own it, I think it looks perfect against the orange wall.  Gray made the other prints in our hallway and an orange velvet door curtain adds the finishing touch whilst keeping out any draughts!



Office - We've only recently turned our spare bedroom into an office, before then it had become the dumping ground for all things wedding related.  There are still a few boxes of wedding crap in one of the corners but we can finally make use of this room again.  This is where I take most of my outfit photos against my huge white gloss wardrobe.  It's from Ikea and I love that it has a sliding door, very space saving!  I haven't included a photo of the wardrobe as it can be seen in almost all of my outfit posts.  The silver wall was a total bitch to paint, do not recommend it even though it does look good and don't get me started on how hard that incredibly heavy mirror was to put up...




Bathroom - I never really use our main bathroom as we also have an en-suite (they are literally 10 seconds from each other, such over kill!)  I don't like sitting in the bath and the shower in the en-suite is much easier to get in and out of when you've first woken up.  We painted a couple of the walls this amazing purple colour to match the purple amtico tiles we have our eye on.  I mainly keep spare toiletries in here as it's got more storage than the en-suite.  I love the quirky mirror from Suck UK, having a wiper blade makes it easier for Gray to have a shave in a steamy bathroom.




Just our bedroom left to share now, that will have to wait til I have hung up a few clothes! haha

    1. It's hard being so colour coordinated at times!! The map is great, they do a few other countries and I think some cities. You can get similar things on notonthehighstreet.com

  7. Loving these posts Sarah, although it makes me want to whip out some purple paint and paint my flat - don't think my landlord would like it too much : /

    1. What colour are your walls? Landlords should get with the times and realise not everyone wants to live with magnolia or white walls!! xx

  8. You're so brave to have orange walls! I'd love to do that but I'd worry I wouldn't find anything to match furniture wise. Lovely house!

    1. It's only one wall and it's in the hallway so we didn't have to worry about furniture. It really brightens the place up though :)
