Fail and frustration

Well, it had to happen sooner or later.
The big stuff-up that seems to come when one least has the energy, time or $ to deal with it.
Ours has been the master bedroom window blind.
It was a special order white timber venetian.
Our window is a slightly odd measurement wide (208cm), hence a special order. Slight problem with hubby ensuring they wrote down the correct measurement (2008mm). Oh decimal place, how I hate you today.
2080 = not 2008mm
So, no pics yet, I feel bummed about the progress. And now with Christmas, summer and a big family wedding on our doorstep, I am not sure how much progress will be made for a while.
Instead, let’s share some inspiration shall we?
Grey and white, so nice.
via Ish and Chi
Loving the bedhead, bedside table arrangement and art. Gorgeous Moroccan bedspread, although I am not going for a red colour scheme.
Via Table Tonic
Adore the mis-matched vintage mirrors above the bedside tables, and use of small desk, lovely.
Via Faded Plains
Not usually one for plaid, but loving these pillows and the throw. Perfect for an Autumn/Winter seasonal bedroom.
Isabel Lopez Quesada via Design Crisis
Ahhh, that’s better!

OK, enough bedroom inspiration for one day. did you have a favourite? I like elements from each, so hard to pinpoint just one room in it’s entirety.
Have a great day Smile

(and who else actually prefers the non-cartoon smilies? I guess I just have to un-html them or something).

Annoying with the wrong measurement. I would have been soooo disappointed.
Good thing you keep a good temper about it!

Sounds cosy with a wedding as well as the holidays, ahead.

I like the white and grey one best, if I must choose :-)
And, yes, a non cartoon smiley.
If I have to choose...!
