i had wanted an airy living room with lots of white, a little blue and even less pink for ages. i wanted to get rid of the dark red wall (we only painted it 12 mounths ago) on the one side of the living room. everything should be white - plain white. well to say the least i was the only person in this household wanting all this.
i had been trying to convince boyfriend on several occassions. showing him magazines with living rooms i liked, asking his opinion on different colour combinations, trying to not get overly excited when he finally (after 8 mounths- gosh! i was so patient on this topic) stated that he did indeed enjoy shabby chic. now don't get too excited yourselves: he doesn't know what shabby chic is, i figured it out that he must be meaning SHABBY CHIC(!).
so i went and bought all that fabric and was SOOOO thrilled when it finally arrived. i started planning and enjoy playing with the different fabrics, ribbons, buttons, etc. the other day boyfriend was in a very low mood. wanting to cheer him up i thought i would show him what i had been working on.
shouldn't have done that...
boyfriend and i had our first (semi-serious) raw on the topic. don't worry didn't last long. we were talking and laughing about it already a couple of hours later. so we(!) have finally decided to at least try it and than live with it and see how we feel about it.
please cross your fingers because i really like it.
