Clearly my diversion tactic of posting beautiful VCA jewels didn't work....On request only from my very loved readers (i would not be posting these otherwise!) here are the coloured room images...however it is official after sleeping on it that i am chickening out of the 'Porters cool blue' attic - it will be Dulux antique white like the rest of the house;) the girls room will remain pink (only because Ella will not sleep in a white room! or so she claims) -  we (yes i have let a 5 YO make a decorating decision!) have chosen a much less offensive Porters strawberries and cream instead of Porters Mademoiselle.

As for our blue master bedroom - if this 7th colour (yes this is officially ridiculous) isn't right i am going to use the Porters Cool Blue that had been intended for the attic (not a complete rejection for this colour)..still haven't broken this news to Luigi or our very understanding (i hope anyway) builder!

ok here goes...

 

The girls bubblegum pink room! (it looked A LOT more offensive in person)

 

Good news was that i am very happy with the natural weave roman bamboo blinds that i will be using in their bedroom

 

New colour will be Porters Strawberries and Cream (2nd colour down)

 

The entrance to the Porters 'Cool Blue' attic - this is half the problem as the attic doesn't have defined boundaries which i have discovered is a must when using these kinds of colours...

 

Luigi and and our foreman John in the blue attic

 

Me reflected from the bathroom mirror - you can see the cool blue actually looks like purple here!!

 

Master bedroom 'British Paints Stunning Sapphire' - it's still way too blue..as in a blue that Gigi would paint with at her kindy

 

With the flash on - the lightness of the blue is revealed; we have tried to choose a new blue with more black shades in it..i tell you this colour selecting is tricky business! Will definitely be consulting with the experts next time;)
