Hello my loves, I realise I haven’t given you much of an update on our home recently and to be honest not an awful lot has happened since our big renovation projects at the end of last Summer. When we moved in I had lot’s of plans and I wanted them all done there and then but since the bigger projects have been completed I have found myself slowing down on the decor and finishing touches.
To be honest the finishing touches are the hardest part for me. I used to think that was the easy bit but it’s really not. Looking for artwork to go on the walls, the perfect accessories to go on the shelves it’s all a bit overwhelming really. I often find myself feeling uninspired with how to fill the space with and I end up just leaving it for weeks and weeks which is why the rooms still aren’t complete.
I’m currently working on my home office and bedroom, I put them off for so long because I just didn’t know what to do with the office space. And the bedroom involved selling old furniture and buying new which is all a bit of a faff really isn’t it. I also try to stick to a certain budget so if I see something I love but it’s going to cost an arm and a leg I will just search, search and search until I find a dupe for much cheaper. That’s how we’ve managed to do so much to the house already, by being savvy. I have spoken about decorating your home on a budget before and this is why it’s taking longer than I’d like because we do have a budget and I’m working with it.
So yeh, we haven’t finished decorating yet but I’m in no rush. I actually find this process really enjoyable, I love looking for new home bits and making our house a home. We have settled in really well, I absolutely love living here. We have a lovely big garden (another working progress) the boys love it, Vinnys school is also within walking distance and we have a park just around the corner. Since moving here I’ve felt so settled and happy, I really adore our newish home.
If you’d like to check out our renovation vlogs you can watch them here, I’ve also just uploaded an update on my office and bedroom if you’d like to see the progress so far. I think it’s all looking fab!
