AD – This is an advertorial but all thoughts are my own
Since I’ve been saving more money and thinking long term about buying a house in the somewhat-near future, I’ve become obsessed with home decor. Especially since I’ve also just decorated my home office, which was great fun. I really have got home decor on the brain right now!
All I need now is The Sims and you’ll never see me again for I’ll be spending all my time building and decorating houses! But until I get The Sims – or a house – I’ll just have to daydream and seek inspiration elsewhere. Which is what I’m doing today with the help of the FAVI website!
And luckily there is a ton of inspiration out there online for interior design geeks like me. From renovation YouTube videos, to Pinterest to simply searching through home decor sites and making your own wish-lists. It’s never a bad idea to know what you like and don’t like when it comes to interior decor for when the time comes that you’re going to need that knowledge!
So hypothetically, if I was to buy a house tomorrow and it need decorating from room to room, here are some furniture and home decor style pieces that I would love to pick up to furnish my new (and hopefully big) house with!
Let’s start with the bedroom because I spend a lot of time in my bedroom and it can be such a safe haven and secure space to be in – of decorated in the right way. I love bedding and looking at different bedding sets and this beautiful Portfolio Hummingbird Double Duvet Cover really caught my eye! I’d pair it with this stunning Chester Grey Painted Oak Dressing Table and probably a light similar to the one pictured above.
I’d be super excited to decorate a kitchen because it’s not something I’ve ever done before and there are so many beautiful options. I think I’d probably go for a darker countertop though. I think this Gloucester Midnight Grey Painted Fixed Top Table is beautiful – but totally not something I’d usually go for!
Gosh there’s SO MUCH choice when it comes to a living room. I don’t think I’d know where to start in decorating it or what colour schemes to use. I’m a big fan of greens and teals, so this Icon Fabric Corner Sofa would be a high contender! Along with a beautiful coffee table, like any of the 3 pictured above! Which one is your favourite?
And finally the bathroom. Which I’d take a lot of care over because I feel like bathrooms can be a really calming place. At least for me anyway. Sometimes it’ll be where I go to get a little peace and quiet and be by myself. So a beautifully designed bathroom would be a must-have for me in my future dream house! Think big windows with lots of light, light furnishings, plants and perhaps a feature wall.
I’m still a pretty long way off from purchasing my own home but I know that when I do, I’ll be mega excited to decorate and make it a really special place of my own.
