I know it’s been over 2 months since my last blog update and a lot of people have been asking why the long halt. Well, my lovelies there’s a good reason for that and we have exciting news! druuuummm roll!
We are delighted to announce that come April 2018 we will no longer be a family of 3, WE WILL BE A FAMILY OF 4! We are super excited especially Joseph who is super eager to be a big brother and we all truly feel very blessed.
Hence I have not been updating my blog as unfortunately with this pregnancy I was having really bad morning sickness which included regular bouts of heartburn and acid reflux…..Absolutely horrid stuff. As soon as I hit my second trimester I got diagnosed with pregnancy induced sciatica which is no fun either. I have been such a hot mess and sometimes I found myself wishing why the heck I am not one of those women who just bloom beautifully during pregnancy. So yeah it has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride trying to save my leftover energy to look after my boy, our home whilst trying to be able to go to work at the same time. But hey, the baby is growing and kicking and that’s the most important thing.
We have not been idle with our house makeover either (well I have, Christopher has been doing most of the manual hard work. – but I am still in charge of Style and Design! ha!)
In my last blog post (Summer’s over and we are back on track with full steam ahead), I mentioned about the work being done in Joseph’s bedroom. As soon as Christopher finished prepping and painting Joseph’s room we moved on to doing up the master bedroom and the third bedroom which will be the nursery.
Christopher and I decided that we want a feature wall in our bedroom and we definitely wanted to go bold! And currently, I am such a sucker for blues, specially blue-grey colour hues in combination with whites and dash of pinks. (and add here and there brass and woods). So when I found out about Dulux’ 2017 colour of the year I felt like the luckiest girl as it is exactly the colour I have been looking for! And I got doubly lucky when Christopher said that he loves the colour too.
Dulux – Denim Drift and some inspiration pictures:
Here’s my lovely husband who unfailingly works so hard to make all my design vision come true. Every time I see how much hard work he is putting into making our house a home I really can’t help but think what I did to deserve such an amazing husband. (ha! sorry cheesy galore alert!)
I also managed to convince Chris to paint our old IKEA Hemnes pine bed in light grey to give it a fresher look and also to match it better with the feature wall. We used Dulux Polished Pebble grey. The grey is so subtle and soft I absolutely love it:
As for the nursery, it has been painted in Dulux Timeless white, the same colour as the living areas downstairs as we currently do not know the gender of the baby. Once we know it will be easy to accessorize and to add some pops of colours into the room. The 20 weeks scan is this Friday so we can’t wait to find out whether the baby will be a girl or a boy. What do you guys think!? A BOY? or A GIRL?
