We've spent the best part of the weekend remodelling the master bedroom. No - it isn't the image you see above - but my creative direction has been taken from this picture. Lots of old, weathered wood and texture - in a monochromatic pallette with a touch of chocolate and charcoal for extra depth.
We've painted the main walls a chalky white and done a feature wall in a deep steely charcoal colour. This will be offset with rich dark furniture and crisp, fresh white bed linen.
We've pulled up the carpets to reveal some old polished floorboards. Next we need to sand them back and restain and polish them and we're done. Then it's on to the best part .... the decorating!
I'll post some before and after photos as soon as we're finished!
I am excited to announce that after almost a year away - I am close to re-launching my new Wild Oak Design website!
The new site will be a collective project of all my hobbies inclding my Mythical Muse Paperie range of unique, quality hand crafted paperie items - my new Homewares range - which includes my new range of Vintage French Country inspired linens and wooden signs - all handcrafted by me - as well as my usual Wild Oak Design website and blog design services.
I have extended my Wild Oak Website Design service to now include a collection of 'Limited Edition Designs' which can be purchased from as little as USD$30.00
I will still be offering a limited number of the ever popular Custom Designed Websites during 2010 as well.
On a personal note, my taste has moved very much into a rustic, weathered, french country style and as such - I have been redecorating my home and garden over the past few months with interesting pieces I have either made or collected - or am still waiting to 'weather' up out there in the elements! I look forward to sharing some pictures with you soon.
