For a while now Chris and I have been redecorating the house. We are getting married in a couple of weeks time and as it's a new stage in our life we wanted to update the house out with the old and in with the new.
The downstairs bathroom was only finished yesterday and we are so pleased with the results. I got inspiration from Coppi Belfast when I was there a couple of weeks ago for lunch. I loved the way they used metro white porcelain tiles and dark grouting and Edison bulbs in every light fitting. I loved the industrial feel of the restaurant. So when I found the black steel hanging mirror in Tkmaxx I knew it was perfect for the downstairs bathroom revamp. The tiles were bought really cheap from B & Q (£15 for 50) and the grey grout was £10 for a large bag. We absolutely love the overall look we are now wanting to get some pictures up on the left hand wall.
The livingroom was also redecorated recently. I have never had a 'theme' before but im obsessed with Pinterest, and constantly wanting to be inspired by new ideas in design. Recently I have been attracted to teak furniture with a modern twist. I have been looking on Gumtree everyday watching out for particular furniture pieces that fit my style. The picture shows a small corner of the room but you can see the look I have went for. The clock is amazing made 1975 in a sunburst design, it is in near perfect condition and in good working order. I found it on ebay and only cost £27 but I really feel it is a statement piece. The drawers are so dinky but perfect for that particular corner of the room bought from a lady in Ballymena who just wanted to get rid of them for £20 and I love the contrast of the teak wood against the 1970s style wallpaper (wallpaper by Scion Wabi Sabi design £30 a roll). We are wanting to buy a new tan sofa in the New Year so looking forward to that!
