Decorating update

The dining room is nearly done. Here you see the new colours of yellow and orange, and I've added a new second-hand dining set and some white Ikea shelving units. 

Those doors that I was going to paint green you'll see are now both gone, and I've hung a groovy bamboo curtain over the cupboard door so I could place a shelf unit in that corner. 

I bought some little feet to go on the shelves to give them more of a finished look, and also so they can be adjusted to make up for wonky flooring (80 year old house). 

You'll also note the 1930s mirror and the Staffordshire dogs I got for my birthday! 

There's a bit more decorating to do in there, but that's pretty much it. :) 


  1. What a lovely home you are creating, Carla. I especially like the autumn orange that contrasts with the pale yellow. :)

  2. Hey! We have an 80 year old house, too. I love the colours, and the way the orange matches the Staffordshire dogs' muzzles. They look perfect there. As does that gorgeous mirror!

    1. Thanks, we are very pleased. :)

  3. We just got some new sofas (the old ones had so many body fluids on them from the past 15 years that it really didn't bear thinking about). We went for a teal colour, with cushions that same kind of orange as your feature wall :D
