I am a homeowner...almost

Life lately has been a little chaotic to say the least, and it's going to get more so, but I can't complain, the boy and I have bought a house.  Yes, a real, whole house.  Which means you're much more likely to find me perusing the aisles of Next Home these days, than spending my Saturday's in Topshop.

I'm not complaining, we've been a pair of boring old farts for the last few years, saving all of our pennies for this very day, and how excited am I! But for you lot, it means my blog may now be filled with pictures of cutlery, crockery and all things house. 

But from this moment forth, I am making a pledge to get back into my blogging routine, although for the time being there is still going to be a lot less outfit and beauty posts because I am temporarily separated from my willing photographer.  So instead, I'm going to be waffling about my new house...I hope one doesn't mind.

The plan is to eventually show you some before and after pictures, although the house doesn't need much decoration we have decided to do some, just to make it feel like ours...and I'll drip feed you some teasers with our plans...

First, the Dining Room:

This was the room I was least interested in, but we've since decided that we're going to make it a Dining Room-cum-Music-y-Room! Yeah, that well known room...the Music-y Room.  We both love music, who doesn't, but the boy is a real keen singer-songwriter, so this is going to be the room where we keep a couple of his guitars, I'm thinking either side of the fireplace, all our CD's, and other music related paraphernalia.

But not only is he a musician, he can paint...(don't you just hate those people who get all the talents while you're with none?) so in prime position above said fireplace we'll be showing off his Beatles artwork.

Then on another wall, we're thinking a wall of framed album covers...kinda like these, but I feel ours will probably look much less cool:

And I'd like some really cool lighting...maybe something like this:

But now I'm just getting carried away...I guess a dining room really needs a dining table!

So I hope you don't mind my home related posts, but the reality is, it's all I'm going to be thinking about for the next few months...I'd appreciate your comments and suggestions though :)
