Title say’s it all really doesn’t it? We’re finally out of our dark little flat (which I did my best to keep up the appearance that it was light and airy – and did a cracking job if I do say so myself) and have definitely upgraded somewhat. I’m currently writing this from a sunshine soaked garden, awaiting yet another mirror delivery (screw gallery walls and shelves, I’ve gone for a very different approach this time around) and feeling so incredibly happy and grateful. We moved in to an area that as a child I dreamed of living in, so not only was this move an exciting one for us due to more space, it’s also been an emotional one for me. I still wake up each morning and can’t quite believe this is where I live now and I can’t wait to start sharing more interior related posts and videos with you as our new bits and pieces start arriving!

Our living room is the most “together” of all the rooms right now, only because our main bedroom is still filled with boxes, we’re still waiting on a media unit for one of the alcoves and that’s it for now. Over time we might replace our sofa’s and repaint, but it’s not a huge priority right now, and I’m definitely not itching to take on another big project so soon after moving! As for new items, I posted a tweet showing our fireplace last week and I’d never had so many favourites or questions on where something was from! It’s actually from Perch and Parrow which I discovered through my friend Poppy, and though it wasn’t cheap I knew it was the perfect size and design to balance out our huge marble fireplace. We also ditched our gross old TV stand (previously stolen off my parents around 4 years ago) and went for this one. I’m in LOVE. Previously when shopping for home wear I’ve always gone for affordable, easy options, but this time round I spent so much time deciding on the perfect pieces and not necessarily going for things that are hugely on trend. The house itself is quite old, (thankfully not victorian though, we swore we’d never go back after our first flat) so we’ve furnished accordingly and gone for more timeless pieces, with more modern pieces sporadically slipped in here and there.
