This post is inspired by the wonderful FifiMcgee’s interiors blog. If you haven’t seen her blog before (seriously, where have you been?!) and you’re into interiors you need to check it out!
I really enjoyed reading her home resolutions for 2016, so thought I’d share mine with you today!
We moved into our flat in November 2014, but have only decorated 1 room so far! Considering my husband is a painter and decorator – it’s not that good going, however he’s been a busy bee working 6 sometimes 7 day weeks to help save for our wedding and honeymoon last year. I think I’ll let him off!
Now that we have a bit more time to spend working on our own home, here are my home resolutions for 2016.
1. Decorate our spare room
This room feels so empty and uninviting at the moment, we want to do this room on a bit of a budget, so watch this space!
2. Decorate our hall
Our hall and stairs doesn’t give the impression we’d like it to when you walk through the door, and the wall full of lumps and bumps certainly needs some TLC!
This is probably the worst looking part of our home (other than our horrible kitchen cupboards!) As it’s the first thing you see when you walk through the front door – it needs sorting!
3. Bathroom tiles and floor
Our bathroom would be very plain and unoffensive if the previous owners had picked different ‘feature’ tiles. Unfortunately for us, they didn’t, so we’ve inherited some gorgeous fish tiles which upset me very much!
I’m not wanting to totally rip everything out, but I would love to replace those feature tiles with something a little more neutral.
The flooring has also seen better days, and hopefully this won’t be too expensive to replace as it’s a very small room.
3. Think about the sitting room.
Our sitting room isn’t quite big enough to squeeze a dining table in to make it a sitting room/ diner, so I really want to arrange the room in a way that makes it feel as spacious as possible.
This is going to need some serious Pinterest inspiration!.
In our hallway I started making a mirror wall, with beautiful ornate vintage mirrors. These can be pretty expensive, so I’ll be on the hunt at charity shops and car boots to see if I can build my collection!
5. Replace the floor in the Kitchen
Hopefully this can be done at the same time as the bathroom. Again it’s a small space, and previous owners had left it a little tatty.
6. New bedding
For our bedroom we only have one bedding set that we actually like. We recently upgraded to a king size duvet (my husband is a serial duvet thief!) and we had to panic buy 2 sets, just to get by for the time being!
One set of bedding just doesn’t go with the rest of the room which is a shame, so if you can think of anywhere that does nice bedding – please let me know! We have one budget set so maybe I’ll let myself splash out here!
I think that’s more than enough to keep me occupied throughout 2016, do you have any home goals for this year?! I’m always on the lookout for new interiors blogs aswell, leave me links if you know of any!
