Anya and Liandra's bedroom makeover

Finally a bit of sunshine meant I could take some photo's of the bedroom makeover, so here it is, ta-da....... Six months of collecting, buying and making items and this is the final result (please note that I rent, so I couldn't change any of the wall colours or make any structural changes) In the above photo you can see Liandra's bed (my youngest daughter), the quilt was made from various aqua and red fabrics from the fabulous Kerri at Sew Deerly Loved, while the quilt was handmade with love by fantastic Marcie at Got scraps (Marcie does the most AMAZING quilts, every detail is perfect, please visit her shop to see for yourself) The red polka dot canvas is just a white canvas with polka dot fabric stappled around the frame. The print on the back wall is from Belle and Boo, I LOVE their paintings.
Marcie also did matching/contrasting quilt for Anya's (my eldest) bed (seen above), isn't it beautiful? Both Anya and I love it to bits. The aqua and red crochet blankets and cusshions are from thecomfortsofhome, I love the colours and the homemade feel, they are also super warm and cosy, a must have here in winter. The fabric bunting, ribbon mobile, fabric letter A and felt birdies (ontop of the cupboard) was handmade by me. Wooden tree and cupboard were bought from Ebay.

This corner isn't finished yet as I am looking for a vintage drawer unit or perhaps a storage seat, but for now I've stolen a drawer set from my room. Print in the aqua frame is from the fabulously talented Tasha at a little sweetness, I've bought several items in the favourite dress range but alas its for another project (boo-hoo) The big print in the red frame is from The little Humbugs and I covered an old hatbox in spotty fabric to match.
The above photo is another angle of Liandra's bed, she LOVES the red birdie decals (removable) on her wall and every day runs inside her room to show them to me ;-)


  1. oh, the room is A D O R A B L E!! thanks for sharing the link with me, and for the shout out!! :)

  2. i LOVE the room! the bedding, bunting and artwork is all so sweet. i wouldn't worry about not being able to paint the walls.....i love the white background. it makes everything just stand out and it has such a simplistic, lovely look. i was actually thinking/dreaming about painting my work space white!

    i love belle and boo too! i finally bought one of her prints and i love it. she has a book coming out soon....if you go to her blog, you can sign up to be emailed when it comes out. it looks darling!
