Decoration- The Plan

You may or may not know, but I have a Pinterest... like most of you! 

I've had it for absolute years, and as a designer, I find it a great source of inspiration. I pin all sorts on there, from lingerie/print/illustrations, to food/style/animals! But one of my favourite things to pin has always been interiors, as I love planning my 'dream home'. Well, turns out it's actually time for me (and david) to start using my Pinterest as we plan each of our rooms!

Both Dave and I have very similar tastes in style, probably because we've grown up together and we're both professional creatives- which is good because he loves everything I pin! As we have a new build, we were able to pick our kitchen, bathroom and flooring already. We've gone for light wooden effect carding on the ground floor with a white and marble kitchen, grey carpets and grey bathroom tiles. We wanted to keep it very minimal so that if our tastes change we can adapt with the house. 

If you were following us back in August we spoke about our Home Areas Wish List. So now we know what our house looks like, we can develop on that plan! We will go into more detail later on in the month with each room, but here is what we have already started planning:
