How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?*

That’s easy - I’d be 33. For. Ever. 

When searching the WorldWide Interweb for a source of inspiration for today’s blog I stumbled across the images below – I thought that they were rather apt given that it is my birthday this weekend and for little people birthdays = ice cream (with jelly). Obviously, these days for me, birthdays = (fizz + posh dinners) + (presents x lots). Importantly, what these images also demonstrate is that any kind of picture can be the inspiration for a room… 

(Images from Lime Love Mud and Atlanta Homes)

I think I mentioned it in a previous blog, but we are hopefully about to commence the complete renovation of our home (after months, if not years of deliberating, pontificating and planning). However, it struck me this morning that we have been so focused on the architectural aspects of the build, I haven’t really begun to think about colour schemes. So, I anticipate that during the next few weeks (as the destruction of our current home gets underway and we sit freezing in the loft with a fan heater and trangia stove) I will be spending an increasing amount of time focusing on the fun bits of the design, including the colour scheme… and my starting point for all this (and remaining consistent with my mantra from a number of previous blogs) – finding a few concept images like the one below that provide me (and my husband) with clear direction on the look and feel of our future home… well, as long as we don’t run out of money during the build... but I hear that unpainted skimmed walls and exposed flooring is very popular these days…
