We bought this end terrace, Victorian property in January this year, we knew it was a 'fixer upper' and that prospect excited us. However when we exchanged contracts and took our first wander through our new home, sans furniture, we realised if we were going to fix it up it needed to be done right and a little more work was required. Every room was taken back to brick, it has been completely re-wired, has new plumbing, we removed walls, bricked up doorways, created new doorways, changed the layout, new floors, old floors revamped, new windows; we have done everything you can think of and it has been an extremely exciting, slightly nerve wracking, very educational experience and I can finally see the light at the end of our renovation tunnel. I am going to do full before and after posts as each room is finished, or as finished as it is ever going to be!
I mentioned previously that this has been educational...I have learnt SO much about houses in general, the process of buying a house, tips for brightening a house, tips for choosing the right paint colours for north, south, east, west facing rooms (a whole post to come on this soon), the right carpet for the right space. There are so many big and so many tiny decisions to make and me being me I couldn't make any of them without fully researching my options first. Everything has been thought through, right down to the door knobs.
If you can't wait for the full reveal head over to Pinterest it will give you a pretty good idea of our taste and the look that we are trying to achieve. Think bright, light, lots of whites and greys using accessories and art to add pops of colour.
If there is anything that you would like more information on when it comes to buying, renovating, decorating house, let me know in the comments or tweet me your questions, I would love to help!
