I don’t want to admit how much time I’ve spent browsing Pinterest since buying our new house. I absolutely love Pinterest. It makes me feel so incredibly inspired and excited to try new things. The only downside is that I see so many amazing ideas that it makes deciding on which ‘style’ I want for our new home very difficult as I want to do them all!
Browsing back through my weeks and weeks worth of collected pins I’ve noticed a fairly strong similarity between them all though. They all seem to focus quite heavily on a bohemian theme. Our flat, although lovely, was very safe and beige. Everyone used to comment on how nice it looked and how relaxed it made them feel but I’ve always felt like I want to be braver with my interior design.
For the new house, Nick & I are both leaning very heavily towards painting most of it bright white and incorporating colour in other ways. We keep talking about getting a ‘Farrow & Ball green’ kitchen and I’ve always been keen to have a dark navy blue and white bathroom. As we’ve got sloped ceilings in our bedrooms, hanging artwork isn’t really an option so we did toy with the idea of papering the flat bits of Huxley’s room in maps but I think it will be a bit overpowering and look a bit naff. But, we have got a tiny toilet room that I think is small enough to cope with being covered in maps.
We’ve decided we’re going to have wooden floors for most of the downstairs and when we ripped up the carpet upstairs we found immaculate floorboards there too so I’m really excited to get stuck in to a bit of serious rug shopping as I want the house to still feel warm and cosy in the winter.
Obviously to implement all of our dream ideas we’ll need to find a way to make/win some serious money (lottery? Or maybe a poker tournament?)but we’re going to try our best to do it on a budget and I’m hoping I can share some of our DIY projects on here with you.
