Well, this old gal is a bit dated. And just to clarify, I am talking about the bathroom.
We bought this rug many years ago to complement the colours in the lovely leadlight windows Mr M's father made for us. The rug is very restricting colour wise and I always find it hard to buy towels.
It is all due for some renovation but right now we are saving up for other things.
So I felt a quick freshen up might lift it's spirit.
Money can't buy the patina on these taps ;)
I had been searching for ages for the right kind of rug. I wanted something earthy, not too fluffy and not too coloured.
I nearly hyperventilated when I found this one.
With a bit of foofing and rearranging.
Some daytime mood lighting...
It started to take shape.
With the softer colour scheme, this old picture of the children in the bath as babies looked a bit garish.
I just popped out the cardboard mat, and covered it with brown wrapping paper.
I ran the photos through the copier and hey presto, a softer look.
Miss B. approved but wanted to know "where will she put her shower cap now?"
"Right on the tap where it usually goes", was my reply.
"It's nice to have pretty photos but we still have to be practical."
