As I’ve never committed to anything as big as buying a house, I’m not too sure what kind of style I like when it comes to interiors but I bet it doesn’t surprise you that if I had my own way, there would be some sort of pastel colours in there! Just a hint of it, nothing too sugary sweet!
I actually have a very open mind about it and like a lot of different interior design styles. I like minimal, contemporary, pastel, shabby chic, quirky, white space, scandinavian style, sharp colours, bold designs – I like so many different styles, I don’t know how I’ll ever decide on one! I suppose you won’t have an idea until you actually step foot in your dream home, and I’m sure once you’re in that position, you’ll know exactly what to do with the space.
I’m always looking for home decor inspiration
and the safest bet for me is to go for a clean white space with a few colours bits in either a bright or soft colour as an accent – it doesn’t necessarily have to be a pastel shade. That way, if you decide to spend money on an couple of expensive things like fridge or a beautiful chair, it will stand out and make more of a statement. At the moment in time, I’m talking purely from a hypothetical point of view, as in a “IF I was to buy a house, this is what I would do” sort of way. I live in a rented property at the moment, so I’m not in the position to decorate but that doesn’t stop me checking out a million photos of well-decorated houses on Pinterest! In fact, it’s one of my favourite things to do when I’m bored!
After having a look at the Habitat website
over the past week or so (and there’s currently a huge sale on at the moment!), I thought of getting some new bits to brighten up my room and the living room area. I want to go for one or two things that would just lift the place up a little bit! Something small, maybe a lamp, a new rug or a couple of cushions will do just fine for the time being! Being a huge fan of cats, I really love the cat cushion in particular!
All items above are available from Habitat
