My Pretty Home Details

Monday, 23 February 2015

For the last few years my love has turned from shopping for clothes and shoes to lovely items for our lovely home ♥
Although I do still enjoy the odd Primark splurge every now and again, I love saving my money for that gorgeous new vase, canvas of a Wedding photo or new arm chair for the living room.

It seems that I'm not alone and most people take out loans for home improvements, having a humble abode you're proud of and happy to live in seems very important. The TSB loan calculator is perfect for finding out how much you can borrow and what you're repayments will be. I think we all need an extra helping hand every now and again and it's for something that you love and work hard for, responsible lending can really work. 


I wanted to show you some ideas that I've put together around our house. Photos play a big part in every room and after we had instax photos taken on our Wedding-Moon I thought this frame was perfect to showcase them. We added an extra bit of string and the white clips so a lot of the small snaps would fit ♥


Having flowers dotted around the house seems to make such a big difference to my mood, not only do I love buying them and feeling special when doing so, it brings a smile to my face every time I spot them on the shelf or dresser. 

I'm not very creative at all, but I do feel proud when I see something on that wonderful site we cal Pinterest, and I'm able to make it my own. I saw this lovely print and white frame that I pinned on my home board, and decided to try and recreate it. It only took picmonkey, a poster print and an eBay frame for this beauty, I love that it welcomes people into our home. 

I probably spend a large amount of time at home, in the living room (usually in the arm chair, usually blogging on my laptop) so this room is the one we've concentrated on most. A few items like a new bookshelf and dresser with lovely blooms on certainly makes the room. We've recently added the gorgeous brick-effect wallpaper and hung on of our favourite wedding party canvas's, it literally feels like it's transformed the space completely.

  8. Never thought of creating quote prints myself, such an easy idea. I've just moved into my first proper flat and am already choosing homeware over new shoes!
