In Bed With Ralph
You asked for it! Well at least some of you did .. the rest of you are getting it anyway... Some [cleverly edited] photos from around my new villa, starting with the bedroom...
Since moving into the new place I've changed bedrooms twice and re-arranged the direction of the bed at least six times, resulting in me using the smallest of the three bedrooms as the master bedroom. The reason for this is twofold.. a noisy neighbour [Greek version of Tim the Toolman] and the cold damp weather.. So for the time being.. I'm using what should be my home office... It really isn't quite large enough for a Queen size bed and side tables .. so a bit of make do going on.. hence the clever editing... But for now.. it is warm.. quiet... and finally becoming comfortable..

As you have probably guessed by now.. the duvet cover is one of my favourite Ralph Lauren designs .. Hither Hills.. Gorgeous linen covered in large cabbage roses... Here in Australia the price of Ralph can be a little prohibitive, so lucky for me, I collected quite a bit of this design whenever it was on sale..
And if I get bored .. the reverse side is blue ticking
If only the walls in the villa were actually white, I'd be one happy chappy.. They are more akin to the colour you see in the next set.. Builder's Beige.. What I'd do to splash out with a can of white paint.. but...I won't rock the boat [yet...]. I will however be painting up a white storm soon on a French Commode and matching bedsides.. Where I am going to put them I don't know.. but they too have been languishing in a builder's beige for too long. More on that post painting...
Before I go I want to thank everyone once again for leaving me such lovely comments and emails.. I am still having trouble with my internet so am grateful to get this post up. I know I have to do something about this soon but still looking at my options before I dive into a twelve month contract..
Have a lovely weekend everyone... Internet permitting I'll be over to visit you soon.
This post is linked to Beverly's Pink Saturday. This is my first Pink Saturday so I will have to dream up some more pink for you in future weeks..
