One of the things I've loved most about moving into my own place is the decorating. When it comes to living in a rented place, you want to get your stamp on it as soon as you can to start making it feel a little more like 'yours'. I got cracking before we even moved in, picking up bits here and there.
The living room is probably where we both spend the most time, together and separately so it's the room that's the closest to being complete. I wanted to keep everything bright and airy, we have a huge window which lets in some great natural light, so I wanted to maximise this. I also wanted to bring the outdoors - indoors. Living in a city centre apartment, we don't have our own garden so I wanted to bring a touch of greenery and life inside.
The one in the grey pot (pots was from TK Maxx, £4). Was a house warming gift that I accidentally killed, but it’s slowly coming back to life now! The pink toned pot is actually older than me. A friend bought it for my Mum close to 30 years ago! She wasn’t using it so kindly leant it to me! Thanks Mum! The plant, I think was called a Flaming Katie and was from B&Q for £6.
Ah, now the Hendricks and Belvanie bottles you see happened by accident. I love the bottles themselves and they were just too good to throw away so I thought I’d try them out as little faux flower pots. Seen as though Hendricks is my favourite drink and the Belvanie is Mr’s drink of choice, it was only right to keep them on display!
