Our first ever House-a-versary was last week and we couldn’t be happier!
It has been a whole year since we bought, and moved into, our first home together. There have been some truly mature decisions to make, from bills and providers to the colour schemes of the rooms 😉
It’s funny because we both look so young that people selling things at our front door sometimes ask to see our parents… awkward! I guess that in this day and age it’s really difficult to have your own property, let alone a three bedroom semi-detached house at the age of 25. Don’t get me wrong, it’s in the middle of nowhere that’s why we could afford it but still we’re both very happy and are proud owners. That’s why our first House-a-versary is a milestone for us.
Since we moved into the property we changed quite a few things around the house, although luckily for us the previous owners looked after the place really well.
Anyway, here’s a quick recap of the past year in the house…
- We have been engaged for a while so we’ve been saving even though we’ve had the mortgage to pay. Slowly but surely. AND only one month left until the wedding!! I’ll be putting photos up after the big day soon so keep checking the wedding ideas section of my blog 🙂
- We look after lots of plants & flowers. I’m lucky that my mum is a florist because that means I now grow herbs as well as have lovely fresh flowers on a regular basis. Be it a superstition or a Russian old wives tale, but I’ve been told that you must bring a plant into your new home to symbolise life, happiness and a fresh start.
- I’ve been experimenting with decorating and interior design. I’ve never taken a course in home design before so I learn as I go and as I write this blog. I’ve loved the journey and think that I only started to find my style since having the house. My most recent creative home idea was to add material onto my new wallpaper to make the feature wall match my handmade blind. What do you think?
- I’ve had plenty of interior thoughts and many DIY projects and plan to have many more in the year to come. Thanks for reading and do let me know what you’ve enjoyed most.
