I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. -- Coco Chanel

a shabby chic boudoir...

Since moving into a new house, I've had to endure a blue faded carpet and gloomy blue walls and both blues clashed completely. And that's not the worst of it- I don't understand why anyone would dream of doing this but the radiators, shelves and even the door was painted baby pink.

It wasn't nice and it definatley wasn't homely or at all chic. My dressing table and mannequin simply didn't fit. So while I was over at university in Southampton I trusted my mum in giving my room a complete overhaul.

She decided to opt for a shabby chic vintage look. So when I came back, it was such a transformation and I loved it! So here are a few photographs that show my room and all the accessories in it.

The new full length mirror was £105, but I fell in love with and had to have it because I didnt want to put the wooden one back in my new room.

and lastly a photograph that my friend gave for christmas, I'm currently waiting for it to be framed...

I have been buying the odd accessoires for my room, but I really need to stop because I don't want it to look too cluttered!

What do you think, what style is your room?
