Green is the new black for Winter 2014.

It seems that green is the colour for Autumn/Winter this year...if in doubt, just feast your eyes on these delightful rooms...

Summer brights for a Winter trend.

The nights might be closing in ever more quickly of late but I'm holding onto the Summer vibe as long as possible and just love the colours in the 'playful' trend chart below...so teamed them with some interior ideas for a reminder of long, hot Summer days with the kids...

Cute study spaces for kids.

It's September, so that means a new school year...and homework!
These ideas should inspire the most reluctant of young students...

After a Summer of discontent...

 ...I'm looking forward to resuming 'normal service'...!


I'd like to explain what life's been like for me recently and why I've been absent from the Blogosphere...
In June this year I resigned from my 'day-job' as a police officer after twenty-two years. It wasn't what I wanted to do, but systematic bullying left me with no choice. It's hard to think that a few individuals can strip you of your self-worth and esteem in what should be a professional and mature environment but my abusers did...and I didn't see it coming, despite helping so many victims with similar experiences...
As a result, I kinda' lost a bit of enthusiasm and took some time out to decide what to do next...
That little journey has taken me until now to decide upon...

I've started fighting back over the bullying, with some very positive responses already, so hopefully I can change perspectives and prejudices for the better so that others can be happy in their job, like I used to be.

And...even better, I'm re-launching Dreams and Wishes...!
The new website is currently under construction and I'm out and about searching for new, delightful things to make kid's rooms extra special...so hang on in there while I get back in the swing of things with more news, info and ideas on kid's room decorating and design.

Thank you...

Kid's room garlands.

I can't think of anything that says Summer decorating more than a few paper garlands strung carelessly around a kid's room.
And they're so easy and cheap to make too...there's a few D.I.Y. examples here
