Working on my own home....

When I moved into my home last Xmas you could say it was a little premature, but having 6 children and our lease up on our rental we had no choice but to move in, no power for several days due to a fault in our power lines etc...but we had waited so long to finally finish our home that I decided I didn't care if it wasn't finished the most important part was that we were finally in our home. I live in a coastal town called Manly (Okay, I'm romanticizing it a bit!) but it's a bay area with a mix of old run down houses and new ones appearing on every corner, we decided to built a timber home with french doors etc..and tried to give it a coastal casual feel and to be honest with 5 teenagers and one toddler formal was out of the question! my lounge area is very neutral so i can easily add new cushions and accessories without any major cost. today I was shown the latest fabrics and papers from Anna French, wisteria as featured on this image looks very country/coastal...but I'm really tempted to use the blue below for my bedroom, I need to make some final choices and stop changing my mind I'm driving myself crazy!
