Moving day is right around the corner, WHOOOO! My boyfriend and I found a beautifully lit, cosy flat in Sai Ying Pun that we are both mad about! With all the excitement around it, and slight boredom I decided that the only way to get through it all was to give my boyfriend a presentation that outlined my visions for our flat. After carefully crafting each mood board and rambling through the whys and hows of each decision I made, he cooly said "yeah, I love it..wouldn't change a thing", which is great but I was feeling a bit chuffed that that was the end of it...SO COME LOOKIE LOOKIE.
I chose a colour palette that allows each colour to interact seamlessly with each other, but also create a calm mood in the flat. Wood has alway felt very 'homey' to me, so I hope to fill each room with big wooded elements paired with accents of copper.
It's all about the in sofa here. A big comfy grey sofa to sprawl out on and a nice plush carpet stretched out underneath the coffee table. With natural light streaming in here its the best place to have a plant or two..assuming I can keep them alive!
My dream for the eating area is to have a big wooden table with a few barstools around, more casual dining and so we can use the table as a work space whenever we need. Big wooden boxes for the kitchen to keep it organised and all the essentials hanging up for quick to grab situations.
Our bedroom will basically be all bed, so to save space the nightstand will be kept minimal with a teeny tiny stool. For some mood lighting, I love the idea of getting a ladder and wrapping fairy lights around it, simple and charming!
I found great little ideas on storage and using ladders to use as towel hangers, or a fun one...using a dinosaur as a toilet paper holder, all thanks to Pinterest. I finally get why all these mummies and DIY-ers love it so much. My favourite little tip I found was that you could tie fresh lavender or eucalyptus inside the shower, and the steam will not only release an amazing smell but also soothes you, very excited to try that one out!
Whether our flat will be anywhere close to this remains to be seen, but we're slowly piecing it together. New beginnings are always so thrilling! Maybe I'll throw up a post when it's done and dusted!
