For those of you who don’t know, Aaron and I are in the process of buying our first house. We are so excited about this next chapter in our life, and looking forward to getting our hands dirty. We are buying a fixer upper, which is what we have always wanted. A place we can really make our own and put our own personal stamp on.
It is a lovely stone fronted cottage/terrace house, with lovely big rooms, large windows and a huge back garden. Everything we want in a house.
We’ve just heard back from the survey and everything is going perfectly. We are currently waiting to hear back from the electrician to see if the house will need rewiring, which we are hoping it won’t, but some things can’t be helped!
I am obsessed with Pinterest lately, I could spend hours browsing through the ‘Home Decor’ section. You can find my pinterest and all the pictures featured here link.
Our kitchen isn’t very big, but as we have a separate dining room, we aren’t bothered. I love this one I found which features the sink we want! I love the Farmhouse sink and can’t wait to gaze out of the window overlooking our back garden, procrastinating/daydreaming, whilst washing the pots…ahhh..the life of a 21 year old.
From our dining room, we have a small room that leads down to the basement, which i’m hoping to turn into a small utility room! I love the layout of this picture I found, having the dryer on top of the washer will save space, leaving room for our ironing board, maiden and any other bits.
We are lucky enough to have a fireplace in both, the living room and the dining room! I absolutely love this cosy look, with the gorgeous cushions and knitted throws, I can imagine our house being like this in Autumn and Winter..so snug!
The dining room is quite large, and our dining table will look quite small and out of place, so to make most of the space we have, I love this unit from Ikea! I think it will look lovely with maybe a bunch of flowers and a lovely large lamp, like the one featured above.
I’d love to know if you have any home style posts you’d like to see? Maybe some before and after posts? Diy? Let me know 🙂
I also want to say thankyou for all the lovely comments i’ve had recently regarding my blog. It really means so much!
