The decisions are mostly wedding related, of course - I am obsessing with table runners atm. I think it's going silver linen, recycled vases and terracotta long toms to balance the elegant with just a few rustic touches. The photo has brown runners but the flowers and settings are👌🏼We are very lucky to have such a beautiful venue and I feel a responsibility to do it justice I guess.
We are also planning to redo some of our rooms downstairs. The downside of decluttering is that it makes me reassess everything. The piano has gone now which I kinda agonised over but I hung on to the thought that it's sad to have an unplayed piano in the house and so it's gone to an acquaintance who is keen to learn to play. I love this wallpaper which I first saw in a magazine but the company offers many other botanical designs. Our 'study' will become a pretty room off the hall with storage aka the 1850's French chest of drawers or commode, a wing chair which we have had redone in herringbone linen and a peg rail for a few coats. I had thought wood panelling but there is no pattern in the room as shutters have replaced the curtains so maybe wallpaper is the way to go. We won't decide in a hurry and certainly not before the downstairs flooring is replaced in May followed quite promptly with my AQA marking (GCSE and A level this year) and then the BIG day. I'm also toying with a new sofa and coffee table. That really won't happen till after the summer.
We have no holiday plans as such😟. David says we should go to Utrecht to see Patrick; he was with us over Easter which I was thankful for and I know he will be back to see Kate and Luci for the stag / hen event this month too. The next time I see him will be just days before the wedding. We could go over in May or August possibly. There, another decision to make.
