I’ve recently moved house. As usual when you move into a rented house, you end up wirh magnolia walls and light coloured carpet everywhere, the cheapest possible lightbulbs, and the end result of a house with no character. However-this house is different. A lot of things in it are things I would have chosen myself, or that I wouldn’t have chosen but I do love. So I thought I’d show you them.
Enter my house through the front door, and to your right is a feature wall. Flowery wallpaper, which is quite cool-but when you look closer, theres even little diamante bits on the flowers! Pretty, eh?
Look to the left and there’s my kitchen. But wait, there’s no door-I have an archway instead. I love the arch and like to stand in it with my arms touching either side-weird, I know.
To your right, just inside the door, is my downstairs toilet. Check out the poppies on the wall. I definitely would have chosen those, in fact my friend used to have them in her living room and I always wanted them.
Further along the hallway and to the left is a big storage cupboard/larder. I love having a larder, now that I have a small kitchen it’s a lifesaver. I’m not showing you photos of inside there though as it’s a right mess…
At the end of the hallway is my living room. It’s got a lovely stripy feature wall, and stairs to upstairs. I always said I’d never want an open plan staircase but I do quite like it. The light in here is amazing-lots of little crystal balls hanging from the light fitting. Sooooo pretty.
At the top of the stairs is my butterfly feature wall. Then on the landing, a very fancy light-three chunky glass squares.
The rest of the house is pretty plain, but I love the character created by the little touches. Oh, and I’ve been able to hang a personalised canvas I ordered a while ago too!
What do you think?
