I am so excited to share this post today, it feels like it’s been a long time coming and wow oh wow, we have a home and one we can decorate as we like, as we’d always imagined. Feels pretty good. You could say we’ve settled into our new home; it’s been almost six weeks and we’re finally feeling pretty good about things. So today I wanted to share with you a first look at our new home.
It’s just a couple of pictures of our living room, but it gives you an idea of the vibe we’re going for – plus a Freds the cat fix!
First up is my favourite piece in our living room, my armchair. This was my one extravagant purchase and can be found at Made.com (you may remember me talking about it in my home wishlist a couple of months back). I love this armchair; it’s bigger than I thought it’d be but it fits in the space so well and, teamed up with the wicker basket underneath, is a great little craft spot. I’m sure come the winter time I’m going to be cuddled up under a blanket on this chair, with Freds trying to find a little spot to sleep too.
Oh and bonus points if you can name the two characters featured on the cushion!
Next up is our Cable and Cotton lights, which we love love love! I found it hard to get a photo that does them justice, but these match the colours we want in our living room so well. Cable and Cotton offer sets, or you can pick the colours you’d like (which we did); the colours are Ivory, Bright Yellow, Anais Green and Sapphire Blue.
And of course, no post would be complete without the appearance of Freds. He has been amazing; settled so well and he absolutely loves our new sofas. Spot the sky blanket too – so happy that’s in our living room on display.
Short but sweet, but I’m so happy to be able to share these with you. We’re still working on the other rooms but hopefully I can share more soon. Don’t forget you can find snapshots of my day to day over on Instagram.
