In short I love Mid century and industrial furniture. Moving into a house full of classic cottage features including Inglenook fireplaces and beams, left me feeling overwhelmed. Initially I just started to buy Shabby Chic items as I thought this would be the only thing that worked and it left me feeling unfulfilled and not in love with my home. We have moved house many times and at the back of my head part of me always decorates the house we are in in a way that makes it most appealing to perspective buyers. I have tried to put a cap on those thoughts in this house although I do know that we will move again.
Interior design is one of my greatest loves. I spent most of my time indoors and thats why I want a home to feel most myself in. I made the decision to mix classic cottage furniture with little hints of my Mid century and Industrial loves. If you want to see how the room has progress have a look at my Living Room Tour blog post.

This room is the closest to being finished out of all the rooms in the house. I still need to replace the curtains which I fear is going to be such a massive cost that I’m delaying it. Si has a habit around this time of year to just declare ‘lets move’ and within a few months the house has been sold. So I’m not too keen on buying items that ill have to leave behind just yet. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love this house and would be happy if we stay ed here. It has everything that we need and I fear that most other houses I look at just won’t compare. Also this weekends project is painting our front door baby blue. I have always dreamt of having a house with a baby blue front door so its going to be even harder to get me to move!

What do you think about mixes so many styles in such a classic property? Does it work? I absolutely love our lounge because it is definitely all my taste but its interesting to know whether other people think I’ve hit the nail on the head or lost my hammer all together.
