Shabby Chic Saturday: Lilac Affair

I've been in my new bedroom for a couple of months now. Although it's a tight squeeze,  I'm really happy with how it is turning out. I've had to make a few colour scheme adjustments as the quilt cover that I decided on totally threw my previous planned colour scheme out the window. My mission to create the ultimate shabby chic style bedroom is halfway complete! I wish I could say the same for my craft studio but unexpected costs have unfortunately derailed all plans for the time being.

I decided on having light lilac walls for my bedroom. The paint that I selected was Taubmans 'Lilac Affair'. It's a really pretty colour! I wish I could say that this is my bedroom but it's just a photo from the Taubmans website to show you how gorgeous the colour is as it fails to look half decent in my own. This is the kind of style I am going for though, just minus the black furniture. I love the feature mirror above the bed, it's exactly what I'm trying to get my hands on. You can betcha bottom dollar I will find a cheap one some where on the planet! Watch me. I do however have a cheap but gorgeous chandelier decorating my ceiling! It's similar to the one pictured but it's pink... and that's for another post. I would really love to get a picture rail on my walls too so I can hang my mirror (when I find it) and other pictures... just to convince my Dad to whack one up for me. Hmm.

This is a sneak peek of my room. I told you the photo doesn't do the paint justice. I'm wanting to eventually wall paper this wall that my bed is against and have it as a feature wall. I'm thinking purple roses or something along those lines.

You'll have to excuse my hand as I try and show you these prints pressed up against one side of a wall that I have to decorate. Originally I was planning on using these in my craft studio but I'm thinking these prints on canvas will match perfectly with the lilac wall. I picked them up at a discount shop last year for $5 each. Ideally I would like another one as it looks odd with just the two. I'm praying that they'll still have them in stock *I am blessed and highly favoured*. So that's my progress so far. And the mission continues...
