Welcome Mel from Mel's Rose Place!
Mel has been blogging for a few years now. She is based in the Australian bush and lives in a beautiful home surrounded by wide decks, lilly pilly trees, huge gum trees, fragrant hedges and her rose garden. She lives with her husband and 2 gorgeous daughters. She loves taking pictures of her home and life - things are forever changing. She has some excellent decorating ideas and has collected some gorgeous pieces of furniture over the years. Her basic theme for her whole house focuses on white with accent colours in each room. Mel also gave us a tutorial on how she did the black and white frames on the wall (she printed the images straight from her computer!)This room is my favourite in her house! We have lots more of Mel's house to show you over the coming months.
This is what Mel says about her room:
"I could not decide what colours to do in this room, it has had many changes. Katrina think it was you who said you really liked the blue and black and it got me thinking to try that. Then saw the free black and white print outs from The Paint Place and decided in one afternoon that I would go and get some black frames, print them and put together with some vintage blue plates I bought ages ago.
The couch is a big squooshy one from Bayswiss which takes up a lot of room but is hugely comfortable!
If I could change anything it would be the actual layout of the room - we have a big tv in the opposite corner and because of the site of windows, doors etc there is not enough walls to put furniture against. I am about 90% happy with this room."
So pop over and visit Mel and feel free to ask her any questions about this room!
We are also discussing lots more houses over at The Decorating Forum today.
