I am moving out. Finally. It was always the plan to find somewhere to rent, however, it has happened so fast. The bungalow, we will be moving into, will be ours this week. So, the boyfriend and I will moving all our bits and bobs, over the next couple of weeks.
I must admit, all this change has made me feel a little anxious. There have been changes in work - new offices, new staff, a new route to work. It may not be a big deal for some, however, all these little changes have made me feel uneasy. Plus, the only reason I'm able to move out, is because of this job - so I must stick with it and try to enjoy it there.
Anyhow, I have spent much of today on Pinterest, and on Etsy, admiring the home decor. It is so easy to get carried away looking at these dream rooms, and pretty home accessories. Pinterest, for me, is the ultimate escapism, and source of inspiration. I have so many ideas of how I would love my new home to look.
I came across many ceramic bowls, vases etc on etsy. I do love the idea of having a shelf, or fireplace scattered with vases, glass bottles, and candles. It would also, make the room feel fuller, as we don't have much furniture to start. Etsy is the perfect place to purchase such things, handmade, vintage, pre-loved, and the prices can be very reasonable. It's safe to say, I have my eye on a few items - expect many homeware posts to follow. I am torn between having, cream and neutral coloured ceramics, for a modern and softer look, or, having a colourful display of ceramics, like above. I think, I will have to do more pinterest research for such an important decision!
I have also been adoring everything Anthropologie, in particular this Firenze Velvet Cushion. I personally would not spend this much, so as many do, I searched online for a cheaper alternative. I came across this wonderful tutorial, that creates that exact cushion. It does look a little complicated for me, being such a craft shy person, however, I would love to have a cushion or two like this one - for my new abode.
There will be more homeware inspired posts to follow, I hope you have enjoyed this one. There are only eight days left to enter that special giveaway, which I am thrilled to be part of. Good luck to those who enter.
