1 year ago, to the day, this was our living room, we were half way though our project.
Edie had arrived on Easter Saturday, on the Tuesday the scaffolding went up, cement mixers whirred away from 8-5 and my kettle worked over time.
And now this summer we can enjoy our new space as a family. Last summer our weekends were spent in B&Q staring at paint samples, Evenings spent discussing plug sockets and bathroom fixtures. Id sit night feeding Edie scrolling through Pinterest until my index finger was numb on a quest for decorating inspiration.
Still with so much left to do, things to change to inject our personalities into our living space.
We decided to not jump in straight away and get all the furniture in the space of weeks, instead we'd take our time. Invest in pieces we loved, not settling for the here and now. I'm so glad we did as still now almost a year on our tastes are finding their feet with each other. I like punches of colour among greys, typography, cushions. Mr. G takes a little more convincing on soft furnishings and will be more cautious with colour.
I'd like to use this are of my blog to share a few of my favourite corners of our home. Places we love to shop, stories behind our purchases and pieces I'd give my right arm to have.
Here's a few teasers of what's to come ….
