o maan i really need some help from abi and the forum. our bedroom walls, woodwork and ceiling are painted Railings and look fab but our shutters and floorboards are Blackened (a very sterile white - i just couldn't swing the dark floors...). It doesnt look or feel cosy and cool. do I get grey bedding or cream or white? or a different colour entirely? and what type or colour of rugs? Changing paint colours isnt an option so i am a bit anxious i have messed up! Would be so grateful for any advice, ideas or pics. thanks so much xx

I think that without a photo uploaded it will be very hard for anyone to picture what the problem is. Please can you upload one so we can see the vibe and lay out of the room/furniture and painted walls etc. hope we get to see it to be able to help.

thanks Shelly for a very good new blog to follow, just had a browse of a few pages. The man or woman seems to never be satisfied which is hilarious and I guess where we all stand too:) The rooms scream AH indeed.

You need texture and you need colour. Either a fluffy rug on the floor I've got Moroccan ones on mine, or something quite tribal ish in lovely hues pinks, burnt oranges etc. The odd cushion and throw on the bed will help, flowers soften rooms instantly, lights - I've got 7 in my bedroom will totally help. You haven't messed up you've just started once you start adding you will see the transformation promise. Texture and colour are you game changers!
