Corners Of My Home

I don't know about you but I love nosing at other people's homes and their decor, and have spent many a night on RightMove looking at gorgeous houses and getting ideas for the day when I can finally decorate my own home. I thought I'd post up some photos of my house, so you can have a nosy at where I live!

Let's start in my living room/lounge/front room (depending on where you live). I love that I have a fireplace again, as it provides a real focal point, and makes it very easy to display cards at Christmas and Birthdays. Having a fire helps to keep warm as well, because I can blast the fire when it begins to get chilly without having to heat the whole house.

My tetris lights are so awesome! Rich bought them for me for my birthday last year, and they only light up when they're touching each other through the metal on the edges of the pieces. Many a fun time has been spent trying to rearrange them to get a different look! The vase of fake flowers has been with me for the past 5 years whilst I've moved place to place and it always manages to fit in with the room. I'm appalling when it comes to keeping real plants and flowers alive so fake ones are the way forwards for me! The fairy lights have pegs on them, which was very useful when it came to Christmas as I could attach cards to them and it looked really pretty. My head ornament was a gift from my sister, and it was from Next originally. It's unusual, but I love it, because it has a globe etching all over it. It's really hard to describe but it looks awesome.

My snuggle chair is the most recent addition to my living room, and is the Ledbury one from Next Home. This is where I tend to spend most of my time in here, curled up on the chair with my laptop, watching Netflix. It's the perfect size for a person to sit curled up on (even a lanky person like me) and can fit two people sitting comfortably, as long as they know each other so don't mind sitting close! It was a nightmare getting it into the house, it required the door taking off and everything so I dread what it's going to be like when we move out! The little owl was made for me by one of my school friends' etsy shop, however they're not available on there anymore. I love owls, you might find them popping up here and there in these posts!

The living room light fitting is this gorgeous black chandelier, Rich isn't a fan but I love it! It came with the house though unfortunately so I won't be able to take it with me, which the taller members of my family are grateful for because they do have a tendency to whack their heads on it when they walk underneath!

So that's some of my favourite parts of my living room! I haven't shown you all of it because the rest consists mostly of a lot of DVD's, games and books, which will be mentioned at a later date.

Do you enjoy looking around other peoples homes? Where do you want to see me feature next?

  1. Very jealous of your fire place, they always look so lovely and it must be nice to have a way for Santa to get in! x

  2. I love looking at other people's houses on right move too. I love your fireplace, our flat doesn't have one and I miss that focal point, although it's probably good that we don't with oscar around. X
