Green doors....

Room colour scheme
I like this colour board, some of the colours I am using for my babies room. The blues/aquas, yellow, green and reds.

A nice bedroom for a teenager (still thinking about ideas for my 14 year old)
Not sure whether dark blue and white would compliment the green doors. Maybe I have to have the right shade of blue for it to work

Sheridan bed Linen
I saw this bedlinen at Myers yesterday and initially I had dismissed it but some of the colours caught my eye. It had all the colours in the colour board (pic above) I don't want the red sheets pillows etc but the yellow sheets are really pretty. I could fold the doona at the foot of his sleigh bed and show off the pretty yellow sheets and a blanket on top...just like in my favourite inspirational picture. What do people think...Will this pretty doona set look nice with the green doors?

Wardrobe Doors
Time to give an update on the progress of my build. Still slow but the good news is, still moving along. This makes us very happy. There is nothing worst than turning up to your build site week after week and no progress. I think we are into our 15th month...3 months over our due completion date. Its amazing how some houses can be built so quickly and easily and others like ours that seem to take forever. My heart goes out to all bloggers out there who are currently building or waiting to build and are experiencing difficulties and frustrations like we are. I know many people are also paying rent on top of a mortgage with slow builds. Others like Stormygirl, haven't even got a starting date even though her land was ready to build on several months ago.
A few friends have commented to us that we are 'too nice' therefore our builder puts us last on his important list of houses to be completed. I am beginning to think they are right. Maybe if we had of yelled, harassed, insisted, argued etc during the build, it may of been finished? That may of been true but sometimes the bigger picture is so much more important. Our builder has done so much extra for us without charging that perhaps he may not of been inclined to do so if we had of played hard ball.
I hate confrontations and still believe you can put your point across without all the dramas. I would definitely be terrible at running a business! Anyway, the doors have been hung and slowly, slowly we are getting there. I cannot see the finish line yet but that's Ok. As long as I am stilled thrilled with the quality of the work then I can be patient for a little longer.
Now let me tell you the kitchen story....l think I will leave that for another post LOL!!!

OMG……I LOVE the colour!
Can’t wait to see them up and the rooms completed, your chosen colour schemes for the bedroom look so fresh!

We saw them tonight Michelle and can I say OMG... Out of everything I have chosen for the house, the doors are my number one favourite (that is until my bianco romano granite gets installed in my Kitchen LOL). No need for any feature wall as these make enough statement in the boys rooms. The only aspect I am not sure about is the painted strip between the set of doors...what do you think Michelle, is that ok to have that?

Hi Mrs B.. Sorry if this has been answered previously.. but do you know the colour of these doors? We LOVE them, and would love to paint a feature wall in this colour :)
Well done

Hi Sha

The colour is Dulux Kiwi Fruit. I call it a 'fruity Green'what ever that means LOL Michelle picked the colour for me and it is just perfect. I would get a sample pot and see if it works with your main flow colour. I got the idea of painting the doors a vibrant colour when I saw a display home with these beautiful red doors for the kids rooms. All I remembered about this house was the looked fantastic.
A few people were concerned that it would date, so I had to choose a colour that I considered timeless and fun. so green it is!
