Home Improvements I Want To Make + A Few Dream Ones!

Hey beaut's!

Me and my boyfriend have been living in our little home for nearly seven years now and even though we have given all the rooms a lick of paint since living here I feel like my interior style has totally changed over the years and I have a few rooms that I'd love to re-do, so today I thought it would be nice to share the things I have planned and also a few little dream idea's which may have to just stay as dreams for now he he!

Spare Room - One of my favourite rooms in our house is actually our spare room, we completely revamped this last year and changed it from the 'junk room' to an office space! We gave the walls a lick of grey paint and bought all white furniture and it ended up looking incredible! It's made the room look so clean and crisp and somehow it makes the room look much bigger to, the only finishing touches that the room needs is some replacement aluminium windows oooohh or some of those fancy white shutters, they are so dreamy and I'd love to have them in the entire house!

Bedroom - I'm pretty happy with our bedroom, it's cream with a warm cosy vibe going on and we ended up replacing a lot of the furniture in their too last year, the only thing I'd LOVE now is one of those fabric/velvet beds with a huge headboard, I've been wanting one of those for such a long time so I think I'm going to have to sweet talk the boyfriend a bit more for one of those he he!

Kitchen - I think the biggest thing I'd love to change in our house is the kitchen, I would literally love to rip the entire thing out and start from scratch! My kitchen of dreams would have a fancy range cooker because they look epic, one of those American style double fridges which are massive - they look amazing don't they! I'd then love the room to be painted white maybe with some white tiles thrown on the walls with light grey cupboards and marble work tops, I'm talking kicthen goals right now aren't I! To complete my dream kitchen I'd love an island in the middle, I've always loved the look of those islands so I think I'd have to have one of those in my dream kitchen!

Lounge - Our lounge was given a lick of paint earlier this year and we changed our feature wall of wallpaper in their too, we also got the most amazing corner sofa and a new dining table and chairs, the only thing missing for me is a real fireplace or wood burner for the autumn/winter months! We have a fake fireplace and although it's pretty it doesn't beat the rustic look of the real thing, my Mum and Dad actually had a wood burner fitted in their lounge and it looks so nice so that's something I would like to change if I could!

Hallway - The final thing on my to-do list is the downstairs hallway that leads up the stairs and onto the landing! Again I'd love to go for grey walls but I'd love to add a botanical feel with some plants, they would have to be fake plants of course because I've killed every living plant I've ever bought, and I'd go for some prints on the walls leading up the stairs and maybe some copper decor! This is definitely something I plan on doing pretty soon so watch this space hehe! 

What dream home improvements would you make if you could beaut's? I'd love to know!

  1. We have so much left to do!! None of the walls have been painted, but they all need sanding down and PVAing first!! I have a couple of weeks off so I'm going to attempt some plastering too! :D xx
