Decorating my Living Room....

I have been procrastinating for a long time now over decorating my good living room. I have it painted since the summer time. It is a pale ice blue/white colour. I have my sofa and armchairs bought and am now trying to source a fireplace which I have spotted online.

Below are a few images of some wallpaper I like from Sanderson. I like both wallpapers but I think that the floral bird pattern is more to my taste. It is the voyage of discovery range (Clementine Dusty Pink). I will get this wallpaper for both alcoves each side of the fireplace.

In terms of the fireplace I like the Victorian fireplaces with the decorate corbel detaling, Below right is an image of our chimney breast. I need to buy a fireplace and get it fitted before getting the skirting, wallpaper and flooring can be started. 

I have my sofa bought, it a dark slate blue colour. Have you any nice inspiration for me for the room?

Some Heritage in Ireland...

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Today myself and my husband visited Clonmacnoise in County Offaly. Clonmacnoise is located on the edge of the River Shannon which is Ireland's longest river. It was founded in 544 by Saint Ciaran. It is a monastic site with ruins of two round towers, high crosses, seven churches and even a cathedral. It is a wonderful place to visit and look around with a visitor centre on site. The photographs came out pretty well for a cold January day in Ireland. Hope you enjoy.

All things nice on Instagram

I got a new phone for Christmas and have set up an Instagram account, below are just a few images from my Instragram. Why not follow me allthingsnice_4life  It is snowing heavy here at home and I am longing for the longer Spring days with flowers budding and the sun shining.

Winter Wellies

It is very windy and cold here in Ireland this past week. I haven't had much of an opportunity to get out and about as it is dark when I get home from work and dark when I am leaving in the morning. At this stage I am looking forward to Spring time with the longer days and brighter mornings. I haven't had the chance to use my hunter wellies much but hopefully soon.... Is anyone else longing for Spring time now???

Holidays Finished...

Christmas and the New Year celebrations are over now for another year. I took down most of my Christmas decorations on Saturday as the foilage was getting withered. I leave our tree up until Little Christmas on the 6th Janaury. I hope you all had a wonderful festive season with your family and friends. I had a really relaxing time. Now to a new year and lots of new plans for the future. The New Year can be a bit depressing for some people but we have to look at the bright side of life and keep positive. I have no new year resolutions, just take it as it comes and enjoy life. As my husband always says things happen for a reason. I got a lot of vouchers for Christmas this year so decided to treat myself and get a few pretty things.
