Gallery Walls

I've been in my new home almost 3 weeks and I am almost finished decorating my living room! I'm taking more time with this place because I plan on living here longer than I have lived in some of my previous houses so I want to get it right first time, and also, I want to spend a bit more money on it so I will have to tak it at a slower pace so I don't bankrupt myself.

I have a couple final touches to complete the living room, and one of them that I  really want to do and have wanted for ages is a gallery wall. I love the way they look and I think it'll be a great way of filling the blank wall space I have on the largest wall in my living room. As ALWAYS in my life, Pinterest is my number one source of inspiration for this!

I love how colourful and visually interesting a gallery wall can be. It's also a nice way to show of a lot of different interests without cluttering your home, by focusing it onto one wall. I can't wait to get my living room all finished and share the final version here on the blog. And more importantly, I can't wait to start planning the parties I'm going to have, Pinterest will need to get backup servers installed when I start on that mission!

I moved!

Just checking in! I have been in my new home for about a week and I am loving it so far. It's strange still, and I almost have to remind myself that this is permanent and I'm not going back to my old job or my old flat sometimes but I am really settling in. There are still a few unpacked boxes, and I find myself constantly fretting about money but it's all worth it when I get to catch up with old friends, or y'know actually have a separate living room, kitchen & bedroom. I'm excited about what this move could mean for me, it feels like a bit of an adventure and I can't wait to see what the next year has in store!

As I work my way from room to room and get the place decorated more fully I'll be able to share a few more pictures with you all of what progress I am making. It's going to be a slow process because I have to be careful financially, but then hopefully that means I'll be able to try out a few DIY projects on you too!
