My dreams for my house

Facebook memories. Mostly they remind me of how fat I used to be or my bad hairstyles (I went through a very bad punk stage) but for the most part they are happy memories, that remind me of good times with friends, jobs I have left (with some GREAT people I have worked with, man I have worked with some great people), clients I have loved (here is looking at you Mondelez) and times that have made me laugh, want to share with the world.

Guys, I love my house so much. It’s not perfect (it doesn’t have an oven – like I don’t cook at all but guys, have you ever noticed how much you use an oven? Well I didn’t realise I did either until I didn’t have one). Take goodness for my slow cooker, my steamer and my George Foreman Grill I have managed but I am dying to bake a cake that my eating plan won’t let me eat!

I have such great plans for my house, and I am not 100% sure of my future at the moment (that’s a blog post in itself) so I am going to day dream and show you all the lovely things that I want to do to my house.

It’s going to be a Modern Bohemian Masterpiece.

Lounge / Living Room Inspo – can you tell I am REALLY into baskets on feature walls? I am not a fan of the dark walks though, I want everything to be light and airy for my indoor plants.

Kitchen Inspo – I am really into cement counter tops with wooden shelving and cupboards and because #IHaveThisThingWithFloors I want really beautiful either floors or back splashes for behind my oven

Bathroom Inspo – I know I need to put in a shower (thank goodness I don’t live in Cape Town because I ONLY have a bath) and I love really crisp white linens and plants, obviously. Lots of plants. Here are some looks I think I may copy.

Bedroom Inspiration – Ah, my lovely bedroom. I am so lucky with my room because it has the most beautiful natural light. I really want it to be a mix of dreamy and “I just want to flop in my bed” whilst still being a place I don’t want to leave and just sleep all day or chill in with a good book. Also, I NEED a better place to put my make-up on in the morning it’s currently in the corner in the place that gets the least light, and it’s built in. WTF!

I haven’t even thought about my office/spare room and how I want that too turn out but for now I am loving scrolling through endless streams of Pinterest Inspiration boards to find bits and pieces that I like and want to use as inspiration for my lovely little piece of this world.

Now I just have to figure out how the hell I am going to pay for it all, but it’s going on my goals list and by hook or by crook. It WILL happen – maybe even a Garden & Home feature like our house in Zim. (Yeah, my Mom set the bar high for me you guys)

See you on the internet

    I love your vision boarding. Manifesting your dreams through visualization. Make it happen.
