Starting the decorating

Finally after waiting for what feels an age for the decorators to turn up, today they have arrived.
All six of them! 
We waited so long that they now have all the bedrooms to do not just the two kids rooms.  I would have 'before' photos to share but they started so quickly that they had the old paper off the wall within half an hour.  I did think we were mad paying for decorators, but the speed and quality makes up for the price.
I have been 'pinning' like mad on Pinterest so if you would like to see my bedroom mood boards then check out the link on my sidebar.  Hopefully this time next week I'll have photos to share.

Behind the scenes

We have been working away behind the scenes on boring things lately, new insulation in the loft and a new hot water tank and system.  I think it is the biggest tank I have ever seen, but with three girls in the house the bigger the better.   So our money is being spent on boring things and I am dying to get decorating.

Since Kirsti answered my pinterest query, I am now addicted!  I spend any spare moment trawling for ideas and making boards!  I love it!  Now to work how to take the pictures and use them on my blog page??

I heard from the decorater yesterday that he will start the girls rooms in three weeks time.  All paper, paint and fabric has been bought already so hopefully it will be a quick job and I'll have pictures to share.

In the meantime, pinterest and the Farrow and Ball paint charts for me!

Can anyone help me with pinterest?  I have emailed my application to join ages ago, but no reply! How do you get onto this site??
