Well the wall paper came from John Lewis and is called ‘Made with Love’ by Pip Studios. It is very expensive, but I think it is also adorable and once I had seen it, I couldn’t say no to it!
I was looking on the John Lewis site because I had been asked to buy something and review the experience. Sadly I have to say that whilst I LOVE the wallpaper, the experience of buying it from the John Lewis in Watford was extraordinarily painful. They really didn’t seem to know what they were doing and it took ages, which is very difficult with young children.
In the end they had to order it online anyway, which I could have done myself. What I would say is that the website is great and it looked just like it did on the web, so it would have been fine to buy it online.
However, we did go to buy a sewing machine straight after and we got wonderful help with purchasing that, so it must just be a departmental problem.
The paint on the walls is standard Dulux, but we used Farrow and Ball on the furniture that we bought, which is amazing to paint with. Most things came from either eBay or Hertfordshire Craft Collective around the corner at Battlers Green Farm. The HCC are wonderful if you have a project like this – you just let them know and they will go hunting for you!
If you would like some more information on my inspiration to up cycle and go for the vintage look, have a read of this post over on my Mummy Whisperer Blog. I’d never even really designed a room in my own house before, so it has all sorts of tips on how I managed it for the salon that you might like.
*Disclosure: I was given a voucher in return for reviewing the shopping experience with John Lewis, but as you can see I’ve been really honest about it. I would still recommend them. At the end of the day, it was a long wait for wallpaper that we’ll have for years.
