A Splash of Colour

Not content with redecorating one room during this holiday, I was itching to add a bit more colour to our bedroom.

I wrote about our bedroom makeover here when my Mum and I transformed it from a metallic turquoise and patterned wallpaper mess into a crisp white room with grey and yellow accents. I still love this colour scheme but was browsing Pinterest for some ideas and came across the idea of adding a pop of colour around the window.

I was wary of painting on our beautiful white walls but decided to just go for it and I bought a sample pot of the brightest yellow I could find in B&Q (Narcissi if you’re wondering) and slapped on two coats.

It is quite a shocking shade but there is such a tiny amount of it that it doesn’t look too outrageous and when the sun shines it adds a beautiful golden glow to the room. This was my view from my bed earlier this week:


This mini-makeover only cost a couple of pounds but has really revamped the room – I would recommend it if you are a fan of white walls but want to add a pop of daring colour.

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
