Happy 2013 to All my Readers! Hopefully it’s going to be kind to us! Wishing you lots of great creative ideas and interior inspirations!
Our New Year’s resolution is to finish the house! I couldn’t be bothered this year to write any personal resolutions as I know I won’t have time for anything apart from redecorating and sourcing interiors. But you know what, I love it! And I love telling you all about it!
A quick round up of what we did in 2012:
Installation of gas central heating
New sash windows
Master bedroom revamp
Front garden and back courtyard sorted
Office/guest bedroom restoration
New floors upstairs
New carpet in the hallway
Living room repainted
What else we’ve got left to do:
1. Finish living room
2. Repaint the main door
3. Second reception room/library
4. New floors downstairs
5. Utility room
7. And the kitchen
The last two are going to be the most expensive and will require lots of research.
As soon as we finish the heavy DIY, we’ll be able to focus on more pleasurable part: hanging frames, getting accessories and general interior styling. Can’t wait!
Wish us luck!
What are you planning to do in your home this year?
We want to transform one of the reception rooms into a library (we are both undeniably bookworms). Between us we probably have hundreds of books read and collected over the years, which are still unpacked as they are waiting for the shelves they can rest on.
We agreed that ‘the library room’, as we call it, is going to be S’s room, so he is going to design it. Thank God we’ve got a very similar taste.
The main colour of the room is going to be grey. But which shade to choose?!
The shortlist consists of five shades of grey.
The room’s general style is going to be a combination of a traditional Victorian Bibliotheque and a contemporary reading room.
