Gorgeous, I love it! It looks open, natural, all the colours blend so well... not actually my usual taste but I think you've done it perfectly. I'm too late to vote though! :(

Little In Oz, it's funny you ask about the paint colour since it's just magnolia! I think it looks darker since the photos were taken at night and I had the lights on. I can't change it anyway since I'm renting :) Thanks for the thumbs up!

Thankyou all for your lovely comments! I'm truly flattered!

EDIT - Just realised I shouldn't have included my Flickr link in my last comment, sorry! Please delete that comment and keep this one, thanks. :)

Apologies for the delay in responding to questions, here are some answers -

The Ikea daybed is perfect, so comfortable (I also chose an Ikea mattress) and is very sturdy considering how reasonably priced it is! I highly recommend it.

And yep the round table is also Ikea, it's meant to be a bedside table, heh.

At first I did use the large bookcase in it's traditional sense, for magazines and storage boxes, but I found it started to look too Ikea showroom esque (not that there'a anything wrong with that; I love Ikea showrooms) so decided to surround myself with my prettiest treasured items (hence the typewriters being on display and my old cd's, ironing board etc being in the cupboards).

I would love the typewriters to be on the walls or on a sturdy shelf but I'm not supposed to hang stuff up, plus most of the inner walls are thin plasterboard and I just wouldn't trust it!

The kitchen is quite generic hence I didn't include it fully in shots, though it does have a washing machine and other white goods so does the job.

Thanks again!

Lastly if you want to see some more pictures of work in progresses and customisation, there are loads on my Flickr.
