Home inspiration- the nesting edition!



Jason and I have never been all that great at sorting out the finishing touches, round our house.

We love to start a project, oh my goodness do we! But those last few bits and pieces, like putting up artwork and finding new handles for our wardrobe doors (not kidding, we only just did this after a year of being handle-less!) and putting photos into frames and replacing the cushions in the living room? Well, we’re not so great at all that!

Until, that was, my nesting urges kicked in! Now I’m blitzing this house like it’s an episode of Changing Rooms (remember that, British children of the 80s and 90s?!) and have been ticking things off the ‘Household’ to-do list in my Evernote app like I’m on some kind of mission. Which, I suppose, I am.

Right now I’m in the middle of updating our living room (it was the first room we ever did in the house, so was in need of a soft furnishings refresh), and also have been finishing up jobs in every other room of the house.

I’ll be sharing a post with all the changes I’ve made in a few weeks time (though the nursery will be deserving its own post, I think!), but today thought I’d share a little inspiration board I’m working from at the moment!

    Omg we are exactly the same, we never get round to finishing off things completely! I have so much artwork to be hung, door handles to be fixed on, shelves to be arranged, the list is endless! I love the pink & grey colour palette, thats the colours I’ve gone for in our living room :)

    I’m totally feeling you sweet Rosie, Davy and I are not so great either for the finishing touches in our home (or reparations for that matter, our poor kitchen table broke down 2 months after we installed it, and is still not repaired!). But i’m sure the excitement to get ready for baby is a great motivation ;) Lovely inspiration board, love the vibe and the colors!

    I totally know what you mean about not getting round to doing the little bits and finishing touches, I’m the same. I think by the time the big things have been done I just need a rest and to not make decisions! But the plans above sound brilliant. I have those Anthropologie mugs (in turquoise, blue, yellow and red) and spoiler they’re amazing. You definitely won’t regret purchasing them (oh and the matching bowls)! x

    I love all of this! Carl and I are the same we worked really hard at decorating and buying the big stuff when we moved house but we still have loads of bare walls – I am rubbish at the details haha xx

    I love the colours you’re going for! We’re the worst at finishing touches too! We had our hall and bedroom redecorated last August, and right now, it still looks exactly the same as it did when it was first done, just with a few plants dotted around haha! We’ve got pictures sitting on the floor beside their frames ready to go up, but it just never seems to get done! I really need to get it finished haha!
    I can’t wait to see your changes!
