Now then, which light would look best in a high cathedral ceiling, with the wood all painted white?
How about this bedside light in a completely white wood panelled room? Too white?
These are the questions currently doing my very unstylish head in?
If you’ve read my post called A Beach House Restyle – Help! you’ll know that we have a huge job on getting our Jervis bay house ready for rental… and that I’m seriously style-challenged.
Luckily, my good friend Kate Broadhurst, who styled her own very gorgeous Huskisson Bed and Breakfast has been helping me a lot.
Look at Kate’s beautiful bedrooms at her B+B.
Now our beach house will look very different as there are bright yellow doors and kitchen bench tops, plus a very blue carpet on the mezzanine level.
So Kate’s advice to her novice pal is: ‘All white walls and ceiling and then accents in bold primary colours.’
Kate drove up to Sydney and
dragged me joined me on a trip to Ikea and here are some of our purchases and rejections.
If we were redoing the kitchen, it’d look like this. We’d love to… but not this year.
Now, I am serious… which of these lights should I go back and buy… I’ll need three actually…
Imagine dusting that first one!!
The painters will start on the house soon. It’s a really big job – huge. They will be painting the whole interior, ceiling and all, in Antique White USA. Gulp!
Are you stylish? Any top tips for a novice?
