After my little room tour a couple of weeks ago, I thought it was time to show you the rest of our cute little house. Although my housemates and I didn't know each other before we moved in together, luckily we all have quite similar tastes and have jointly made it such a lovely place to live. It's quite a small house but it's perfectly formed - also it has a separate dining room downstairs which just means more places to put things!
Because it's quite a little house, all of us have found that our rooms aren't quite big enough to hold everything, so I think the need to spill over into downstairs is what's made it seem so homely. You've seen my room - I only have a little set of shelves, and they don't even come close to holding all my books. I must confess that about 90% of the books downstairs are mine - I just can't throw them out! And I love a house full of books. They're so welcoming.
We love our wall vinyls - such a great way to spice up a rental property as they're easy to remove! I got both of them from eBay - the cat didn't take us long to put up at all, but the cherry blossoms took most of an afternoon (every branch, every petal, was a separate sticker. It took forever!). We keep debating getting this one too. There are some amazing ones on Etsy - I'd love to have this one up some day (even if it is terrifyingly expensive!)
I scanned these photos from an old album of my Granny's and printed them out as I just fell in love with them. The first one is my Grandad catching a fish, and the second is my Mum and her twin (I actually posted them on here a while ago).
You caught me - I took these photos just after I took the ones in my last post!
It's just so bloody NICE to have all the little bits and bobs I've collected over the years at car boots or on trips out and about - even my elephant, which matches Natalie's sofa and Kate's chair perfectly. It's just such a nice place to come home to!
