Children's bedrooms with Farrow & Ball

Farrow & Ball have always been a favourite paint source of mine, from updating shabby chic furniture to updating a room, their brilliant variety of paint colours and finishes suit any surface and design.When it comes to decorating children's bedrooms, colour and the use of creativity is a primary factor. Below Farrow & Ball have put together a great collection of inspirational children's bedrooms all painted using Farrow and Ball.

"Transform children’s rooms into colourful hideaways with Farrow & Ball modern emulsion.

When it comes to decorating it’s not only important to choose the right colour but also the right paint finish to suit your immediate needs. Available in all 132 Farrow & Ball colours, Modern Emulsion is a more hardwearing alternative to Estate Emulsion, while still retaining the matt Farrow & Ball look. This durable finish is the perfect choice for children’s bedrooms which not only have to live up to a lot of wear and tear, but also changing tastes over the years. From nurseries to teenage hideaways, the key is to choose colours and patterns that can be easily adapted and updated for a new look as and when tastes change.

Children’s playrooms and dens are great places to be bold and have fun with colour. Accents of bright colours like Rectory Red, Charlotte’s Locks, Yellowcake, St Giles Blue and Arsenic are a brilliant way to add vibrancy to a room and create pops of colour. While moodier tones like Down Pipe, Railings or Stiffkey Blue will create a striking backdrop with a contemporary edge in a teenage bedroom.

All our paints are water based and eco friendly with a low or minimal VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content and low odour. Our paints have also been independently tested and approved to meet the Toy Safety Standard*, so parents can rest assured when decorating their children’s nurseries and bedrooms or painting children’s accessories, toys or cots. When complete washability, stain and scuff resistance is required, Modern Emulsion is the ultimate high performance alternative to Estate Emulsion. It has a low sheen level and is the ideal finish for all walls and ceilings in not only children’s bedrooms, but kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, and other areas of intensive usage."

My new summer look!

With Summer in full bloom I opted for a change of style and decided to go short. I've gone for a short pixie style cut and I absolutely love it. It feels fresh, light and sexy. When wearing a short style, attire has to be taken into consideration. Cute spring / summer dresses look great and stylishly compliment shorter styles. This evokes a more feminine look and ladylike appeal; think Audrey Hepburn and Audrey Tautou!

Le Meridien Vienna Hotel

The stunning Le Méridien Vienna beautifully blends a delightful mix of contemporary and traditional design and features throughout its interior. The art portrayed makes this hotel very popular with art lovers being close to the magnificent Vienna State Opera and the Imperial Hofburg Palace highlights its cultural flair. It's an old meet new, classical Viennese taste combined with eclectic contemporary charm. The hotel itself conveys a modern European lifestyle which complements the surrounding city. The interiors from the bedrooms to the restaurant and bar highlights its glamorous taste for great design and an exciting ambiance. The lighting is stunning and glows fashionably throughout each corner of the Le Méridien Vienna.

 "We wanted a hotel that conveys contemporary European lifestyle and yet is typically Viennese.
For us this meant setting up links between old and new, tradition and innovation; to inspire individuality and interaction, to bring up passion for culture, and to be as much a meeting point for the Viennese as an international hub."
