Aaaand... It's a wrap! Almost. Miss Anoushka's room is pretty much finished, with the exception of "operation "Spice Rack" oh, and curtains, so let's take a whirlwind tour of her tiny (and it is tiny!) room:
It's fairly different from what I initially imagined, but I adore how it's come together. It's cute, rather than being too stuffy or sophisticated. One thing I wish I could click my fingers and change is all those (Dulux Natural White) white walls. I may still paint the ceiling a colour. Or I may paint a feature wall (or two!). To be honest, I'm not sure what colour I'd even do it... (thoughts?)
Hung the mini-gallery myself. Bloody hard work. Thinking I may wake up with (bulging) biceps in the morning...
Yes, more pictures...
I think every good daybed needs a couple of chunky-ass bolster cushions. Do you think I can find any in Sydney that are long enough? No. No I can't.
(above) 3 Howards Storage World tub thingies at $32 each. Nice and big, yet shallow enough for sliding under the bed. Best 96 clams I ever spent. Oh, and they come in pretty much every colour of the rainbow!
(above) Yellow/green/blue dots: "Food colouring on serviette" by Jasper Bell; Greige-y smudgy canvas: "How not to paint" by Louise Bell; Kiddy drawing also by Jasper; Small pink oil paint & graphite on canvas by (Aussie artist) Lisa Madigan; For Like Ever poster bought online from Village; Bone China Angel Wings, $340 from Have You Met Miss Jones.
Living up a long driveway, among so many beautiful tall trees means it gets super dark in our house at night (unless the moon is completely full), so I bought these great Candela Tooli nightlights online from Olifant last week after seeing them on page 42 of Adore Home magazine's "British issue" $99 for a pair - one for each of the Mini Tonics!
"Piper", Anoushka's cuddly since birth, snuggles up to a couple of Table Tonic Pink Spot Ikat cushions.
How. Fab. Is the blanket. Thank you mum!!!
(And no, she won't "take orders". I already asked.)
Oil paint & graphite on canvas by Lisa Madigan. Love.
(above) Any guesses what's going on this wall??? (Hint)
So... I hope you enjoyed my little tour of Mini Tonic's (nouveau) boudoir! Early days, and I'm sure there will be tweaks and adjustments here and there, but she loves it and I do too! Oh, and lest we forget the dreaded "before" shots (below), which resemble some kind of beachside crack den when I look at them now...
The. End. (I hope)
