While I'm away travelling, Katy from Little Winter has very kindly created a guest post on her truly Pinterest-worthy home. I've often drooled over Instagram shots of her house, so I'm really excited to have her tell us some more about it here! I'm sure you already have, but please check out her blog too - it's one of my all time faves!
If there's one thing that we're particularly proud of, it's our home. After two years of renting in various flats and houses, it was fairly overwhelming to be able to decorate and do pretty much whatever we want when we bought our first home late last year. I've always enjoyed buying nice things to make a house a home, but my level of buying has been somewhat a little more intense since (sorry Little B!) I mean, who's going to comment on how fabulous our guttering looks when there's vases and throws to buy (actually, a neighbour did mention that our guttering needed painting - the con's of being a homeowner.. boring bits!).
Come on inside as we share our favourite parts of the home.
The spare bedroom has become our haven where we like to go and relax. Little B enjoys taking a good book and a cold drink to the room when he has a few hours to spare. Besides the bathroom, it's the only room in the house with painted walls and makes such a calm and welcoming environment for when guests come to stay. I literally love this room (partly because it's our most recent decorating)!
Our living room was the first room in the house to be decorated, and since then we've already changed over some furniture (I didn't realise how you constantly add to 'finished' rooms!). I always wanted brick wallpaper after having exposed brickwork in a previous house so this was the first thing we did when we moved in! The living room is perfectly cosy for those Winter evenings.
Thank you so much to Katy for guest posting while I'm away - what do you all think of her amazing home? Posts like this make me dream of owning my own home and being able to decorate however I like, I can't wait! I'll definitely be turning to Katy's blog for inspiration. :)
