I’m in!! Thoughts so far…

Posted on: July 12, 2009

Well, I’m all moved and getting settled into my new home.  I gotta say – it rocks 😀  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…

Nice photo inspiration! I’ve always been a fan of the mismatched chair idea. It’s a nice excuse to start a chair collection without it taking over your entire place. Can’t wait to see photos of yours — good luck with the unpacking.

i’m a huge fan of mismatched chairs! do it!

All I’ve got to do now is choose colours to paint them 🙂
