My Love for Interiors

Ever since we bought our first home last September, I have become obsessed with interiors and interior design and making a blank canvas into something homely and has our identity stamped all over it.

Looking back, my love for interiors probably goes back to 2015 when we were living in a flat, with it being rented it meant there were quite a few restrictions of what we could and couldn’t do which is quite tricky but I am so glad I can go OTT with my ideas now.

We are extremely fortunate to have moved into a new build and have been part of the process since before a brick or concrete and even been laid. It was so exciting that we got to choose what tiles we wanted in the bathrooms, what flooring we wanted and the combination of kitchen cupboards and the worktop. For me, the exciting part of it all was once we had moved in and got the furniture in the correct places (that was pretty stressful – well apart from the flat packs, I am a bit of a dab hand at them). The best bit was to play house and add those little accessories to give it our personality giving you that warm fuzzy feeling – oh and an empty bank account I might add.

Even though we have been living in the house for around 10 months now there is still so much more to do, we are nowhere near finished and I don’t think you will ever be as there is always something you want to change or to add. For starters we don’t even have our wardrobe finished in our main room as we just don’t have a clue on the style we want.

However, I thought it was about time that I shared a few snippets of my favourite parts of my house, I don’t think I’ll ever share it all, some parts you want to keep personal and private but I will certainly share with you most parts. I for one am a huge fan of scrolling blog posts, Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration, much to Martyn’s despair.

The irony is, as I am writing this blog post, my house has been turned upside down after trying to transport a huge wardrobe upstairs after we purchased it in the Next sale at the weekend. Life lesson of the week ... if you buy furniture in the sale and they are ex display you have to collect them yourself oh and they are fully built too.

When you moved home, did you find a love for interiors too?
