bedroom plan, and some coveting

our spare bedroom is currently being used as mew mew's bedroom, she basically has her own bed!  as it's bigger than our current bedroom, we think we'll swap, so we plan to get started on decorating it soon (tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow!); we will be putting up a picture rail and skirting boards (to be painted white) and painting below the picture rail in this turquoise-y beauty ...


i have had the curtains i plan to use in the wardrobe in our room for about two years,  bought from a charity shop (of course!) and lined with turquoise! (it's quite a big scaled pattern, i think it looks like it should be in a large english country house, or maybe even a bit palm springs-y)


this picture from the car boot sale down the road, which i masked off and sprayed the frame of, will be featured somewhere...


the following two items, from a very nice antique shop, are in the fantasy design of the room, as the fabric - which i would use on a chair - is not for sale (boo)...
                                

and the ridiculously gorgeous venetian glass mirror is £220 - waaaay out of our budget. but i LOVE it so much it makes me want to cry...

The curtains are absolutely splendid and will be the making of the room along with that lovely shade of turquoise. Your vision reminds me a bit of Jaboopee's wonderfully opulent bedroom here.

jaboopee's whole house is STUNNING!
i love the crochet lampshade.
the bedroom actually is very similar to my plan, although at my usual pace it might be a while until it is done!!
