Home Decorating Update

It's now been three months since we finally got the keys to our long awaited home purchase and we've been beavering away. We made the decision very early on that we were stripping the whole place down to it's bare plaster, ceilings and floors and starting all over. Little did we know the real task we were taking on, three months in we don't have a single room finished but things are slowly taking place.

There's finally paint going on to the walls and we've been battling the art of painting straight lines. The living room has a brown colour scheme, which has actually dried a lot lighter than in the first picture, it's a Dulux shade called 'Soft Stone' and it's really pretty. We have two bathrooms, one ensuite and one main bathroom, both of them are tiled, which we chose not to strip off the walls. The ensuite tiles have a blue shade in them, we chose to go for a bright blue for the walls which is Dulux's 'Blue Lagoon'. The main bathroom has green tiles, so to complement them we've chosen 'Willow Tree' by Dulux. It's actually a very pretty mint shade which very close to Essie's Mint Candy Apple!

We made a decision a couple of weeks ago that we were going to rip out the kitchen and modernise it. Something our bank balance doesn't like! We've chose our kitchen, which is the Riley design from Wickes, it's a white wood kitchen which we're pairing with oak worktops! We initially nearly bought a kitchen from Homebase but the quality was shocking! We're really excited to be getting a new kitchen, it's going to look beautiful! 

I'm looking forward to sharing before and after pictures with you guys for every room, but we're still a long way off yet! Have you been making any home improvements? I'd love to see blog posts about them!
