Growing up - Our Home

Bringing colour into our living room and home

So as many of you many know we are well into our second property project as we gear up for some final changes and works to be done before putting it back on the market next year and moving onto our third longer term home (well thats the plan anyway). We have found this house to be a real learning curve, perhaps because we have such an active son this time round as well as being pregnant again and has made us mature in ways we never could of realised. Every time we do something like this we gain a further insight into each others likes and dislikes and we are always learning what is import to each of us. While I find the interior decor important John is always on the more practical side of things but together we have the same goal - to make a warm, comfortable and cosy home
wether we are staying here for a year or ten.

We are very excited to be apart of the Hiscox - The House we grew up in Series which showcases some amazing interior bloggers and the journeys they have taken when creating their home. You can read more about our story on there here.

  1. Really interesting, I love looking around people's houses! x

  2. I love the look of your home Laura, it looks quite easy to manage in terms of shape? Ours is victorian and quite oddly shaped and I feel like it always looks messy! x

  3. My husband and I would love to buy a property as a project...I think it gives you an opportunity to build a home around your lifestyle as well as being a project to work on together, although I can imagine it would be pretty testing at times! I bet your next place will be even more amazing...Love your decor style! x

  4. Cute house! You must be very proud :)

  5. Very lovely house Laura, looks so softly lit and cosy!

  6. Nice peep into your home Laura - it's lovely and light!! X

  7. I love your home Laura, the living room is gorgeous! x
