Our new house is definitely a project....
it's very early days right now & the serious work probably won't start until February....
some days it seems like an extremely manageable project & other days, it seems enormous!!
It does, however, all feel very exciting, thankfully.
(I'm saying this not having actually started the work yet, obviously ;))
The house is a Victorian terraced house with 3 bedrooms & a very good sized garden by London standards.
I feel as though I could start a wish-list/to-do list and still be writing it tonight.
On our list currently are....
a loft conversion
moving the bathroom from the ground floor up to the first floor
a kitchen extension
possibly reconfiguring the ground floor
plus re-decoration of every room
So far only my daughter's room is done.
It is almost complete, just awaiting a couple more items & then I can't wait to share it on my blog, I had a lot of fun working on it & putting it all together, I absolutely love the new space that it's become.
We have plenty of ideas & my Pinterest boards are growing every day....
isn't Pinterest such a great resource to have & a wonderful way to collate ideas & styles and to get inspiration....
as well as being enormous fun, what did we do before it?!
It's interesting as well, that through blogging & collecting images over the last few years, my style has changed & evolved, it's been honed & clarified....
where once I might have opted for a traditional kitchen, the sleek white shiny kitchens that seem to be everywhere these days now really appeal to me.
Modern but with a traditional twist is what I have in mind....and definitely some wood somewhere
I never thought I'd live in an all white home, I even said it out loud....
never say never though, these days the idea of white - and the calm that it brings - is very appealing.
The room that will become our new bathroom is a very decent size for a terraced house
("a luxury bathroom", an estate agent called it the other week, although I think that might have been estate-agent-speak ;)) ....and again, I have in mind a simple, clean & pale look.
It's a room that I want to complete ASAP since our current bathroom is not really one that you want to linger in....I'm already looking around & making a list of possible suppliers etc.
My old bathroom had gorgeous wallpaper but this time around I am thinking of tiling it completely in order to create more of a spa feel....this bathroom cladding is also an option.
We do have a budget & so wall cladding is definitely something to consider.
Lots to do, lots of fun planning!
