Anyway, I thought I'd give you a quick 'before and after' as I've been meaning to do this for ages with some of the rooms we've done a little work on.
The next step was to sand and paint the floorboards white, which made the room instantly appear twice as big as it actually is. I then pilfered mum's leftover black & white wallpaper and put it up on the back wall.
We had to hang curtains from another room in the house until our Luxaflex blinds arrive. I love these blinds, they not only help to insulate the room but are simple and non intrusive.
Sabi loves her MintSix Moroccan pouffe (of course) and uses it as both a seat & table in her room. Currently on sale here
The rugs are from Urban Outfitters and they have free shipping to New Zealand for orders over $50. Gotta love that.
This little owl has also been around forever as was bought when Ellery was little. The picture in the background is of me when I was a youngster and as Sabi is a bit of an accessories queen (no idea where she gets that from?!) she has her sunnies at the ready.
Sabi's duvet is by Australian company Three Little Trees, zig-zig Ikat cushion by MintSix (also on sale at the moment here) and her favourite (grubby!) little softie.
This old bus scroll used to be in a bus in London and I scored it off Ebay about five years ago. The lamp and drawers are both old but still kicking, and were bought at ikea. The amber coloured glass vase is from Market Lane Coffee in Melbourne. It's the perfect shape for foliage and is probably one of my most frequently used pieces in the house.
The cockatoo is from Melbourne company Bonnie and Neil and is part of a dinner set. It gets whisked out of the girls rooms whenever we have a dinner party! The girl on the slide was a gift from Sabi's Aunty Brydie and is by UK street artist, Banksy.
The black sideboard was an eBay find a few years ago in Melbourne and travels to different rooms fairly frequently. The Wheelie Bug has been well used and can be purchased here.

By the way, you may notice my font is bigger. It looks huge here, but I think it may be easier to read so will leave it at this size for now.
