I really like the sink in the bathroom, it's really pretty. Where did you get your linen in your bedroom? It's gorgeous! It goes really well with the wallpaper.

Thanks for your comments.

I've had my eye on that wallpaper for a couple of years and thought about using it in my last flat but it wasn't as nice and wouldn't have done it justice.

I found it difficult choosing bathroom fittings as there was just so much choice, in the end I just chose the sink and cabinet and selected all the rest form the same brand to narrow the field. It was an Italian brand - I can look up the name if anyone wants it.

The bedlinen all came from TKMaxx which I think is TJ Maxx in the US? I couldn't find duvet covers in the type of greyish tones I wanted so I bought a light purple one in textured cotton and a white embroidered one and dyed them in the washing machine with grey die. Really happy how they both worked out. The one in the picture was white orginally.

LOVE the bathroom. I can't imagine how much work that must have been - it looks like you moved the tub/shower to the opposite end of the room.
