I Love My Home # 1

This is the first post of my 'I Love My Home' feature! If you missed my original post and are wondering what all this waffle is about, you can find out more here.

Original features...

My first image is of my beautiful front room ceiling. I spend so much time in here and have stared at this every time I have had cuddles with my babies while they have slept in the day, I love it. We live in a Victorian terrace and still have a few old features, though not as many as I'd like. In my front room we still have the original ceiling rose, all be it an inch thick in years of gloss paint, I still love it. We put an IKEA lampshade up because we also love mixing old with new. The original alcove is still in pretty good condition too and I love that our ceilings are so high!

When we moved in, the woodwork and rose were all painted with layers of luminous green gloss paint and yellowed with years of cigarette smoke, we really had our work cut out.


On my home buys wish list this week are some map print coasters I found on Etsy. How amazing are these! I'm obsessed with map print anything and hopefully before long I will get my fix of map print things in this house as well as my giant wall map! I think they will go really well with our room which is white/grey and duck egg blue.

Do you have something in your home that you love? It can be anything from a decorative item to a whole room or staircase. If so, please get in contact, I would love to see and share!

Thanks for reading,
