Home Improvements

23 February 2017

I'm constantly trying to find ways to update and improve my house. Whether it's small things like photos on walls, or big things like re-decorating, I'm always conscious of making my house, my home. Fortunately, Dan is usually pretty happy with whatever suggestions I come up with, which made decorating our home a really simple process.

My weakness for simple home improvements is bedding. I find that different bed sheets can make a whole bedroom look completely different, and I love having a variety of linen for our duvet. As per usual, my favourite type of bed linen is stripes (along with everything else in my life!) and I currently like to switch between our grey and white striped, or navy and white striped sheets, with a fleece blanket at the end of the bed for little Max to lie on. There's something about nice bedsheets that make me enjoy getting into bed (despite never getting a good nights sleep any more..thank you pregnancy!).

When it comes to technology, Dan is the one who's always looking for new ideas! Currently, he's thinking about surround sounds for the living room, as even though the one we have is good, it's pretty simple. When we got engaged, we were gifted some gift cards for John Lewis and similar places, so we've been keeping our eyes peeled for a deal in there. We've also considered new TVs, such as the Panasonic 4K TV, as we've heard it's brilliant for crystal clear pictures.

We've been trying to get the nursery ready (it's almost complete!) and whilst we've been doing that, it's hard not to buy things for the rest of the house. Recently, we've been investing in lots of new frames for the living room and bedroom. In the future, I'd love a gallery wall and am constantly pinning ideas ready for when we make that a reality. There's something really cosy about seeing photo frames in no particular order, of all different styles, showing off prints and family snaps.

I think a home is always a bit of a work in progress really, but it's something I will continue to love doing. Do you have any tips for improving your home?

  3. I'm an absolute hoarder of bedding, I've only just got round to forcing myself to have a purge of the stuff I don't use anymore because I just keep buying more and more and I'm running out of room haha!

    Also, 4K TVs are brilliant, I definitely recommend getting one! I can tell a huge difference on the one in our living room to our old TV.
