Inspired by Gourmet Coffee

 

Have you seen that coffee advertisement on T.V with the gorgeous George Clooney?

It inspired me to create a room that’s as drop dead gorgeous as er.. the coffee.

Start by assessing how little or how much light you have coming in. If your windows are small or facing north we’ll choose a lighter shade on the walls as our base- we like Truffle by Laura Ashley Paints and Oxford Stone by Farrow & Ball. Think latte or cappuccino. You can go shades lighter on the same palette with Malt chocolate or Mellow Mocha (Dulux).

Replace any dark wood or mahogany  skirting and dado rails with medium or light oak.

Next choose your sweetener, the soft furnishings; we like Cameron Baby or Children’s Bedding, which is made from linen in a combination of natural and white. Add curtains in Natural linen with cream appliques or buttons. If your taste leans towards the traditional, choose a print fabric- like vintage floral or gingham. We also like essential dots- brown dots on white cotton trimmed or piped in your gourmet coffee colour choice.

If you like cream in your coffee we recommend a cream coloured rug like Mellow round rug as the floor covering.

Finally add a slice of yummy cake, I like strawberry cheesecake which is shown as our gorgeous Clothes line cushion and set it on your nursery chair.
