Currently Obsessed V.11


Linking back to this post from the start of the month, it's obvious that I'm currently obsessed with trying to make this house a home.
I had planned on doing a house tour type post but that may not be for a while yet seeing as dvds, books and all forms of personalisation are in boxes still. So I'll just leave you with a few sneak peeks of how our little place looks right now.
Come on in...


There still a little way to go but I'm pretty chuffed at how quickly we've actually gotten done what we have. We moved in on the 31st and expected to sit and sleep on the futon we had in our old spare room for a good while longer than we actually have. It's been weird moving to an unfurnished place from a fully furnished but I have to admit it's lovely to have our own stuff.
We have a washing machine and fridge freezer - essentials of course, but also a secondhand sofa thanks to my lovely uncle and a bed courtesy of, who else, but my superdad.
I guess it looks a little student-y, mix and match-y looking but it's home and as Kayleigh of Ruffles and Rabbits said to me via twitter that, 'It's more satisfying doing it bit by bit and getting it exactly how you want'.
Hope you enjoyed that quick peek into our 3 week abode. I'd love to see your personal touches and home decor tastes, feel free to link any posts you may of done on your house below!

    1. Thanks! Yeah we needed some sort of light that wasn't the main big one but haven't any bedside tables yet so the fairy lights were a cool touch I thought.I wanna add more though so it's more like a full wall of them!
      We actually hate the wallpaper though haha, that's the thing with rented places, can't decorate but nevermind. :)

    1. Everyone seems to love that paper except us lol! We can't change decor like that with it being a rented place so gonna have to keep putting our stamp on it with the furniture etc.
      Good luck with getting your place how you want it :)
