Any decorating divas want to share inspiration? Trying to refurb conservatory. Built sort of onto corner or house, back wall and half of one side wall=what was outside wall of house and is painted brick.Victorian style wooden varnished pine window frames (white outside)above brick walls to about 3ft.Glass pannelled roof. Floor is reclaimed oak narrow boards. Presently has 3 peice suite bought for £40 5 yrs ago from local paper, pine coffee table and pine ikea type shelves full of kids rubbish. Used as overflow for junk, extra room for kids in summer esp (but gets hot am getting blinds this year) and nice bright sunny room to flob and read papers.
Want shabby chic or dark wicker But must be comfy, was thinking pale f and ball wall colour but thats as far as Ive got.

My local Wickes has a showroom of conservatories. They have given me LOADS of inspiration as some of them look amazing and they have done wondrous decorating things with what is basically a white plastic room! You could pop into your local branch - they might have brochures that would inspire you as well.

How about painting the inside of the window frames white too (bright white). Then do white shabby chic couches (ikea do some very cheaply, or buy them used out of Loot and get new covers. They do brightly colored cushions and a brightly colored rug. Get rid of pine table and pine shelves and replace with something antique. Or something from "world" type store that sells morrocan or similar style. Or paint and distress existing shelves to fit with shabby chic.
