Like really, it sucks big time. I hate packing, and hate living in that limbo state and I hate the reminants of moving boxes around the house.
We moved house about a month ago now. We were very excited to buy our first home and I was looking forward to having kit own place to make changes to and decorate.
My style up until recently was very cozy and rustic feeling. Lots of creams, greys and greenery. I had wicker accents around the house as well as vintage style items that I had collected over the years. It was a style that I had implemented back in early 2014 and had finally mastered by the end of 2015.......
but earlier this I grew sick of the drab scheme. Scrolling through Pinterest (as I did alot while bub slept on me) I became very intrigued by the electric style that kept coming up on my feed. It was so different and bright and I just fell in love.
I started pinning like crazy and started planning the decor for when we bought a house. I loved Moroccon decor, bright colours, Indian fabrics, palm trees and ferns and metallic accents. We kept an eye out for items whenever we went shopping and kept a stockpile in the cupboard in anticipation for the big move.
Over the next few #Life post I'm going share our decorating journey and any stores I suggest or tips I've picked up along the way.
