# 19 on the 40 before 40 list is coming together. At the moment I would say it is a collection of objects gathered in the room waiting to be styled. Last week I received 4 rolls of wallpaper ordered from UK Wallpaper after researching online and finding they had the best prices and international shipping. I've chosen a pretty Sanderson design from the PomPom range called Obi.
I like the fact that it has a large pattern but the colour palette is soft and subdued, which works well given it will feature on the largest wall in the room.
The current plan of attack when baby comes home is for me to sleep in the nursery in the hope that the rest of the family avoid broken sleeps. Sounds good in theory anyway. Consequently we found the Queen Anne bargain bed (my sister and I had matching Queen Anne beds in our shared childhood bedroom) on ebay and plan to give it a lick of paint. I'm thinking glossy black may be the go. This room already has a lot of warm finishes (I promise to show more pics when it's finished) with the wall opposite the wardrobe exposed brick, and the wall behind clad in floor to ceiling timber panelling.
Other bits and pieces I have collected include this 1950's ballet print which hung in my grandparents house. I have always thought it was beautiful and when nobody else in the family seemed interested to inherit it I put my hand up.
Hop Skip Jump. His name is Clarence. We first bonded when I shared a market stand with Fiona at Bowerbird Bazaar in March 2010. Seriously, everything she puts her hand to is delightful. Go see yourself!

So there you have it - my progress update on the nursery. 9 weeks left to pull it all together.
