Nanny McPhee Interiors - The wallpaper search
Everytime I see Nanny McPhee & the Big bang I fall in love with it all over again. Its the style and the look that gets me as well as the movie itself. Its all that 1930s /40s English shabby chic, meets wartime Make do and Mend, meets Cath Kidston, add in some Sanderson, countryside and mixed with some eccentricity thrown in for good measure. We watched it again here recently and I immediately wanted to redecorate or move to an English cottage with a well established cottage garden. Given that I do live in the Irish countryside and its a modern house not a cottage I find that it really inspires how I decorate the bedrooms in out home.
As a former City girl living in the country with her hubby and three children, I can totally relate to the country cousins/city cousins feeling!
Its hard to see, but you can just about make out the vintage toy carousel and that gorgeous floral wall painting.
take me to your old blog post
See it has been inspiring me for years!
