I’m back onto The House Project, our home renovation with a renewed sense of vigour, inspiration and enthusiasm. We did quite a lot of decorating when we moved in over the summer, but we were busy, tired and skint (!), so had to put a lot of the finishing touches on hold. We prioritised the kitchen, living space and bathrooms and made steps to start the bedrooms, but there is a lot that’s incomplete and not quite there in terms of our interior design ideas. I’d also become a bit overwhelmed with how each space should look and function, so a bit of headspace and a re-think was much needed!…So after a few month’s break, I’m back to clearing boxes, sorting furniture and finding new interior design inspo! And where better to start than with good ol’ trustworthy John Lewis…

So the finishing touches have been put on hold, the finessing and the fine-tuning of most of the rooms. In fact, it was really only the new open plan living space and kitchen and main bathroom that was 90% complete, which was intentional, as we knew this would be the space we’d spend all our time in…and we were right!

With the hubby into his technology and gadgets and being that we now live out of this new space, we chill, eat, drink, work, cook and play from this living space and guess what? We watch a lot of telly from the space too! So one thing we did treat ourselves too, was a new television and home cinema set-up. Continue reading

House Project Update – The Final Stretch

As we are nearing the final stretch of our home renovation, I thought it’d be a good time for a brief video house project update…

House Project Update

It feels like everything’s slowed-down a bit over this last few weeks, as there’s been less builders on site and the decorating side of things just isn’t as quick as the structural changes of previous weeks.

For the first 10-12 weeks, everything moved so quickly and there were changes every time we went to site, so it was instantly gratifying. But the last few weeks it feels like nothing is changing, though we know it is, slowly and our builders are working very very hard. Continue reading
