So guys something quite exciting is happening in my life at the moment, for the past couple of months I have been living away from home with my family as our house gets extended and redone! This is something we have been dreaming about for so long and the fact that it’s actually happening is crazy!
With the “new” house come a new bedroom for me! At first I was super excited, an attic bedroom like I’ve always imagined. Don’t get me wrong I’m still super excited however let me tell you, designing a room may sound exciting at the beginning but it’s so difficult! You change your mind so many times and when you finalise a design you end up wanting to change it again! Also it is the the things you thought would be easy to choose that are actually the hardest. Curtains or blinds? Or both? What size? What length? What colour? Turns out they can really make or break a room. The lights!!! Go for something simple or edgy. Simple could be too boring but edgy could ruin the whole look of the room! Bright colours or neutrals? Tumblr room vs Pinterest room! The list is endless! Days of going back and fourth in the hopes that you’ve made the right decision because at the end of the day you’re going to be sleeping in that room every single night and waking up there every morning. What kind of vibe should I go for? What kind of feel? Bright and refreshing or dark and cosy?
Don’t get me started on the rest of the house! I can’t tell if it’s easier or harder to design! On one hand I have a crazy vision of a traditional kitchen, wooden worktops, cosy colours, clean and elegant. On the other hand the rest of my family have a completely different more modern approach to it all so it’s pretty much 3 against 1. They’ve won. I guess it’s easy because I just let them make the tough decisions and I sit back and focus on what I can design completely – my own room. My own vision will have to wait until I have a house of my own some day.
I really do want to share the whole house designing process with you all so let me know if I should and wish me luck in deciding!! X
