Girly Bedroom Makeover for Spring

Well this is my take on a Spring bedroom. A colourful eclectic mix that is a little over the top, but this morning I decided to make over my Beachy Blue Bedroom from this......

to this.......

What da ya think?  Mr Beach House will have a fit, but his exact words to me this morning were,  "I want no interruptions this weekend.  It's a big one in football and I want to see every minute of it".  I couldn't think of anything more boring.  But I guess it's the same as me lapping up every minute of  one of the house design programs I'm into.   Well I'll show you Mr Beach House.....I too am pretty good at a bit of solitude.  So I will be snuggling up in my new girly Spring bedroom with a good book or what ever takes my fancy, whilst you do your thing.  Yippee!!!!

I challenged myself to change out the room with existing stuff I had, so perhaps the cushions would not be my first choice here and I grant you it's all a little full on, but the whole thing didn't cost a cent.....nudda....of which I am particularly proud!!!  Even the orchids are out of my mum's lovely Spring garden.  The roses were being thrown out, when I went to the store.  I just pulled all the dead petals off and spread them around good side up.

It's bright and ultra feminine.  I will be very happy in here, until I am forced to change it back to blue, but for now it's staying this way.   The second Beach House Brat has already taken up residence in here.  She just called out that she is 'reading a Barbie book in bed'.  This kiddo knows a bit of luxe when she sees it.

And how about the sequined frock?  I can believe it fitted me once.  Well it will have well and truly turned vintage when the Beach House Brat gets her hands on it, although she is already telling me it's hers.

I put the book of Shelley's poetry in here for Mr Beach House.  He reliably informs me they are related.  Why is it then I ask, that for his website makeover, which is currently going on, that I am having to write all the text.  Stay tuned for the launch of that one.  Looks like I'll have lots of time this weekend to get more of it done.

When I'm not lounging in here next weekend, I'll be hanging out at the local school fair.  Hopefully I  have a few little vintage finds to report back on and of course I'm still on track for the baking competition.  So I'll let you know how that goes.

Update on the Beach House Brat:  She went quiet, so I just checked on her and she's out for the count.  The busy nature of the room didn't keep her awake, so Mr Beach House can have no excuse but to relax in there tonight and enjoy his slumber.

So that's it from the Beach House.  Lots of love from a room that's pretty in pink.....and red and yellow and white and..........

Today I''m linked up to and I am especially happy to be joining the Room Inspiration Bolg Hop and Linky  party at DIY by Design
