I’m so excited to share this first post as it means I’m on my way! Where to? you may wonder. On my way to a major overhaul, a top to toe renovation of my twenty year old house! I’m going to share my inspirations for each room and also photographs of each room as it’s finished.
But first, a little history. When we moved into our house, almost twenty years ago, it was a new build, a blank canvas. Easy to stamp your style on it you might think. WRONG! Well for me, anyway, it wasn’t easy – for several reasons.
- Lack of money – we stretched ourselves to buy the house so there wasn’t much left over to go to town on decorating. Yes we painted, carpeted and furnished each room but that was about it.
- Lack of time – with two young children and both of us working full time, we didn’t have a lot of free time to spend thinking about the house.
- Lack of personal style – I had no sense of my own personal style, how to put my stamp on things or indeed what I wanted our home to look and feel like. In those days, we didn’t have Pinterest for inspiration!
So, this journey …
I don’t expect it to be easy, I’m sure there’ll be mistakes along the way but everyone has to start somewhere and this is where I’m going to start!
