It’s amazing how much difference a feature wallpaper can make to a room!
This was the “before” shot.
We emptied the room out and Mr Rackley set to work!
Ta-da! And we have wallpaper 🙂 this is part of the Henderson Interiors Chelsea Glitter range from ilovewallpaper.co.uk – I love the entire range!! It has a beautiful shimmer to it that catches the light and makes the wall reflective and shimmery! This one is called white/silver on the website and is an ivory colour.

The other walls are crown paint in flawless fawn – the same colour as in my lounge.
We also added some floating shelves above the desk for extra storage and because who doesn’t love a shelf to dress!

I still need to replace the grey filing cabinet with an all white one!
UPDATE: I finally found some lockable white filing cabinets that I liked! They come in a few different colours too if white isn’t for you!

The family command centre wall also got a little revamp, it still has all the same functions but with new boards and also a new storage ottoman which doubles as a seat!

I’ve just come across this one which I’m likely to replace that with though –

Now for the boards:
The bases are magnetic memo boards from IKEA with a pretty lace edge. I ordered adhesive white board paper and gridding tape to make my own whiteboard and planning board. The same can be done with adhesive chalkboard paper too!

The whiteboard paper has grid lines on the back which allow you to cut it easily to the size you need – then just peel and stick into the space!
End result! There are little ridges along the edge which I lined the paper up with
For the planning board with days on it, I did the same steps as above but used the gridding tape to make lines along the edges as shown above.
Then I measures the empty space and divided it by 7 so I knew how big each section could be, then used the tape to block each section off
End result with the grid lines – this stuff was really easy to stick into place!
Then using my trusty label maker I made some day stickers on clear tape.
And there’s the finished planning board!

UPDATE: We replaced the big shelves with smaller ones either side to open the middle section up and glued metal label holders to the IKEA magazine files/boxes to make them look better.

UPDATE: these stunning paper flowers handmade by Monique Art have created a perfect statement piece in this room!

UPDATE: I’ve move this gorgeous velvet occasional chair in to the study from the lounge and it fits perfectly in here! The legs have been painted in cream.
