You might have seen from this blog post that I’ve had bit of a crazy year. In that year, I sold my flat, moved back to my parents, and now I’m in the process of buying (and hopefully completing next week!) on my own new flat. The sale has felt like it’s taken forever, and I’ve already dedicated hours to my Pinterest boards on how I want to decorate the place. While I’m waiting, and crossing my fingers that the sale goes through soon, I thought I’d share the estate agent photos and have a little chat about my decorating plans for my new home.Read more
Since I bought my little flat last year I’ve had a little obsession with all things interior design. The minute we started looking for our own place I started annoying Chris with clippings from home magazines, and by the time the sale had gone through, I had a whole Pinterest board full of ideas of how I wanted to decorate. Ask me anything about colour schemes, or decorating trends, I am quite the expert now. Last year just after the offer on my flat had been accepted I visited the Ideal Home Show and I picked up a few ideas, but this year now that I was fully moved in and able to act on my decorating dreams, I was looking forward to visiting again.
It’s been nearly two months now since we finally completed on our flat. The whole process took around 5 months, which I know might seem quite quick, but we were told it would only be 8 weeks, so it felt pretty long for us! The past two months have been spent packing, unpacking, painting, buying IKEA furniture, and trying to put it together. But now at long last, it’s finally starting to feel a bit more like a home.
