not beige

Archive for July 12th, 2009

Well, I’m all moved and getting settled into my new home.¬† I gotta say – it rocks ūüėĬ† I’ve got some pics, but I couldn’t upload them today as I’m using¬†my Mum’s¬†computer at her house and it doesn’t have my phone software (which is packed away somewhere in one of many boxes).¬† My interweb connection will take another week or two – hopefully by then I’ll have decided which decorating project I want to tackle first.

I’ve decided to take my time, get a feel for the place and get used to how the light looks in each room on different types of days before I do anything… let the house tell me what it wants me to do kind of thing¬† :).

I’ll post with pics from my inspiration files when¬†I can post¬†from my own computer again, but here are a few that caught my eye to get started (and a few things on the wishlist for my kitchen!)

I love this idea for kitchen/dining chairs.¬† I’ve got six mismatched wooden chairs that I picked up second hand and I think I’m going to do this with them. (Image from Apartment Therapy)


I can’t remember where I found this image – if anyone recognises it, please let me know.¬† I think the round paving stones¬†look really cool – I’ve got a cute little back garden and this would set it off really nicely.

Totally droolworthy – from Design*Sponge’s sneak peek of peggy Wong’s home.¬† I’ve decided to have my hallway and stairs area all white and I love how this picture wall is¬†done.

Black floor & ceiling – love it :D.¬† I don’t know where but I’d love to have this somewhere in the house – I’m torn between the living room and my bedroom.¬† I had a black feature wall in the house I’ve just moved out of and I’d really like to bring some black into the new place too. (Image from Interior Design Degree Blog – I can’t find where I’ve saved the link to it though!)

And just a few things I’m coveting for my kitchen – even though I want most of my stuff to be second hand or hand made – there are a¬† few things I¬†might have to invest in new unless I’m¬†lucky enough to find them on eBay…
