The red bed...

We had the Captain's old iron bed powder coated red and I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am with the end result.  I wanted the bed to be a little pop of colour in amongst everything else and it most definitely is!

The powder coat guy thought that I was crazy choosing red.  He questioned my husband when he dropped the bed off and even rang me to confirm that I was going to spend "good money powder coating a bed lipstick red."  Oh yes I happily reassured him, although I do prefer fire engine red as a description for it!

Now I just need to hang some art on the walls... what to do, what to do...

I seriously can't stop grinning at how good that bed looks and I have now got my beady little eyes fixed on the bed in the spare room!


  1. I can really tell it's a room for kids.

  2. I do think that the red is just perfect. I love the feel of your boys room with the tongue and groove wall and the wooden floor it has that old world feel and that chair and lamp too. Such a gorgeous boys room Emma:) xx

  3. LOVE the red!! Fantastic choice Emma and the rest of your boy's room is lovely too. I saw a similar bed frame in yellow the other day and the pop of colour was great too. Am loving you sharing snippets of your gorgeous home with us x

  4. ooo - absolutely gorgeous!! love the shine! C xx

  5. Red, sky blue and white = a classic nautical combination.
    What else would a mum of a young Captain choose?!?

    Happy day clever you,

  6. That red is fantastic! And I love the vintage bedside lamp.

  7. Ahoy there! Great choice of colour - the bed looks fantastic! It works so nicely with the model boat, wooden chair, metal lamp, blue bed linen and bookshelf, a gorgeous room!

  8. Just fantastic, Em! I'm *so* not a red fan but this hits the jackpot. And I love little Noddy ☺. J x

  9. I absolutely ADORE this Emma! Clever clogs. I was just coveting a turquoise colour bed....but now I'm not so sure! The vintage feel here is perfect. Meredy xo
    p.s. still paralysed with indecision about 40th
