I had an idea to shoot our home progress on my Instax camera as I thought it was a nice way of both documenting our new house and the journey of it becoming our home whilst being able to share it with you in a way that doesn't feel too much like "over sharing" if you know what I mean.
Each square of Instax heaven showcases a little corner from a number of rooms within our home that I thought you might be interested in taking a lil nosey at. We were super lucky to move into the house of our dreams, a house that needed very little work doing to it at all. It is beautifully painted white from top to toe which is a nice refresh from the deep tones of our last house. I know that a number of you are keen to know whether we're going to inject the same array of colours into our new home, but for the time being we're enjoying living in our white home with pops of colour scattered throughout through soft furnishings and artwork.
It's been so fun to make this new house feel like a home and to be perfectly honest it's taken a while mainly due to the size of it in comparison to our last home, it just seemed to swallow up the furniture we did have and it's meant investing in a number of new bits along the way.
We've made some rather spendy "forever" purchases with the likes of our beautiful kitchen table (which we bagged in a promotion so got 30% off) and the four divine rattan chairs around it; BUT we've combined those more expensive pieces with thrifty purchases from eBay and antique shops. I can't tell you how much I adore finding beautiful antique furniture on eBay, it's a real passion project of mine and I'd sooner scour the internet looking for the perfect second-hand piece than buy something in a shop. We have a number of beautiful second hand pieces that I'll share with you in a few weeks or so including some tips and tricks for finding exactly what you're after too.
We have some exciting deliveries still to come including a new sofa duo; The first is big and velvet and an incredibly kind gift from Habitat whilst the other is something very different for us but something we fell in love with when we laid eyes on it and we just knew we had to have it in our home as a fun refresh to our living room. Fear not though, our trusty orange velvet made.com sofa's are going to a loving home 🙂
Dark wood combined with lashings of texture through rugs, cushions and throws and an eclectic mix or artwork positioned in every room is the general vibe we're going for right now and it's so nice to know that we'll be here forever more so there really is no need to rush into anything.
I do hope you've enjoyed having a little sneak peek into our new home and I'm so excited for more interior styling content. If there is anything you'd like to see, know or learn more about then please do let me know as I'd love to give you exactly what you want.
P.S as mentioned in my latest video a home interiors instagram is on its way, but I can't decided what to call it so any suggestions please leave them below.
