My New Project!

My recent lack of posts have been down to a few changes in my life, firstly, I spoke briefly here about trying (yet again) to loose weight *update* it's going quite well! Secondly I am trying to redecorate my sitting room, but as cost effectively as possible and attempting to up-cycle where I can, which means it is taking a lot longer than I thought it would.
I'm not really sure where the inspiration for my theme has come from, I call it Fresh-Rustic! I basically picked a palette of colours I liked, that I think go well together.

I love the combination of grey and yellow together (as you can tell from my blog!), but on there own can be quite stark and over powering so I added mink, teal and a very pale blue and a few natural materials such as wood, brick, string, rope and hessian and what I've got is a very fresh yet rustic look.
I have relied heavily on Pinterest for inspiration, ideas, hints and tips and thought I would show you some here
                                                    *This is my actual Wallpaper*

I would like to share my progress with you all, so look out for future Up-cycling series of Posts.
If you wanna see more of my ideas and inspiration you can check out my Pinterest board here
