Josie Makes… a home!

I finally got the keys for my new flat in October 2015, after first seeing it in the February. With a lot of help from my parents, and a lot of DIY, I moved in in mid-November 2015!

At the start of December, I put up my Christmas decorations. Today, I took them down and the place looks very bare! Most of the time I have lived here there has been a Christmas tree, and it sort of felt like it belonged. I’m going to have to get to work putting some things on the walls.

I intend to do blog posts for each room to show how it looked when I moved in, through decorating and now, finished. First up will be the bedroom, once my new wall print arrives!

Until then, here are a few ‘before and afters’ of each room…

Make a House a Home

I don’t know about anyone else, but I spend a lot of time imagining what my perfect house would look like! I live with my parents at the moment, but with my new job starting next month, I’m starting to think about getting my own place!

The best place I look for inspiration is Pinterest!! Here’s some of my favourite pictures so far.

Mismatched Teacups

For my future house, I imagine an organised chaos. I’m not exactly a tidy person but everything does have its place, I just have a lot of stuff! The best thing for me is to keep things simple and have a lot of storage, and then just have colourful things that I can move around or change as soon as I get bored. Something I imagine for my future kitchen is a subtle Alice in Wonderland theme, which includes, for decoration, mismatched tea cups hanging on the wall somehow. When I was on the Isle of Wight we went into this tiny second hand store in Ryde, which sold old, pretty things. I fell in love…. I got these 2 tea cups for £6!
