Take a peek inside my bedroom

20th November 2018

Around this time last year, we were picking up the keys to our new home - a truly momentous occasion, full of emotions and excitement as we moved away from all the stress and involvement of buying a property. Fast forward 12 months, we have just finished decorating our bedroom and the nursery for the baby's imminent arrival. One lesson I have learned throughout this journey is to have patience - decorating a home is like a never-ending love story. Every house tells a different story and every chapter of our life brings a fresh perspective. It can be daunting and slightly frustrating when an entire house appears to be entirely redecorated in the span of one TV show, but it's very likely that the owner of the house you admire on Instagram took a long time to acquire that look too (or had their decorator shop for them to speed things up). I have had no choice but to learn to be patient and jump on the slow decorating bandwagon, even if I occasionally find it very hard. Our bedroom is a work in progress - we currently don't have the time and the resources to make all the necessary changes to acquire the final look (a hybrid of modern and traditional), but it's slowly coming together.

How we decorated our living room (without spending a fortune)

The living room is often the largest room in the house and frequently hosts the most expensive furniture and decorative accessories. If you've just moved into a new house like we did, chances are you spent your entire budget on deposit, solicitors and removals company. But don't let a barely there budget keep you from decorating a house you'll love living in! Almost everyone tends to go over their budget when furnishing their house - I strongly suggest to invest in your sofa and rug (if you don't have carpets) first. A high quality and beautifully designed sofa will give the entire room an expensive feel and transform the space. We fell in love with theĀ 'Connor' 3 Seater Velvet Sofa from Made.com and ordered it before we even exchanged contracts (our buying process was quite possibly the smoothest and fastest in the whole history, will talk about this in a different blog post).
