Moving into a new home was a very special time for us. We finally had worked our socks off to afford a gorgeous 3 bed detached house with a rather large garden. Much better than the 3 storey town house built into a hill we moved from. Anyway we love proper wood furniture, the sturdy robust type that will last forever and worth spending those extra pennies on.
I love a blank room to plan from, this is what one end of the living room looked like before the movers arrived. It doesn’t look like that now of course – it’s missing baby girl’s toys! But you have an idea of the space.
We left all of baby girls wall stickers on her old bedroom wall in our old house as they were too hard to get off without damaging the paintwork. So this is the perfect opportunity to have a hunt around for some new artwork and prints for her bedroom walls, and we have been very lucky in that Arty Apple came along and offered up a review of a product on her site we knew exactly what to choose – personalised wall art.
Moving into a new home has given me lots of new ideas of how to make our home very special. My favourite room in our house is the kitchen diner, and I’ve been thinking of ways to jazz it up a bit. Previously I told you about my #InteriorInspirations for the kitchen and ways to make it more homely, now I want to brainstorm kitchen lighting.
This time of year natural light is in abundance for much of the day, but come Autumn and Winter with those dark mornings and evenings lighting is very important to me in the kitchen. When I get home from work I like to get the tea on and then prepare the packed lunches for the next day, so I can spend up to 2 hours in the kitchen in the early evenings.
As you all know I love a good bargain. I have been really pleased with the new home furnishing bits and bobs I’ve picked up recently for the new house but I’m on the look-out for some new mugs and other china ware for the kitchen.
Last year you may remember I did a Wish-List post for items for the home, so this time I’m back with another wish list for the home, but for Summer time.
On Friday we moved house, it was raining, not typical Summer weather at all, but this didn’t put a damper on how excited I was! I have been dreaming for months about how I want to design the interior of my new home. With it being Summer, I want that warm, fresh yet stylish look.
It’s a new build I’m moving into so the garden is going to be turfed, this means we won’t be able to use the garden for weeks while the turf settles in and the grass is nurtured to grow. This sounds like hell for me over the Summer months as the garden is my favourite place.
So I want to come up with lots of #InteriorInspirations ideas for keeping me sane inside this Summer. To start with I have created another mood board. I loved the last one I made on New Bedroom Ideas.
This mood board is full of Summer ideas and warm colours. I love the idea of picnics in the garden in the hotter months.
Our house move is less than a month away now, we are all very excited!!!! One thing we have been thinking about is about sprucing up our bedroom – New House New Bedroom right?
We recently had a gorgeous new mattress from the Memory Foam Warehouse in which we reviewed. So now we are looking for ideas on decorating our bedroom.
As you know from previous posts like when we were thinking about decorating baby girl’s bedroom, I love to create mood boards. Here is my mood board for our New House New Bedroom.
