This weekend was quite something for me, from a special friend’s wedding on Saturday (tears of course), to Ben’s rugby dance (huge celebrations) and finally to find out that my offer had been accepted for my first property *gulp*.
Seriously nerve wrecking stuff, but at the same time all very exciting. I am only going to be taking occupancy in February next year, so until then I have a feeling Kiss, Blush and Tell might have quite a few home décor ideas/posts – and please (for those who are clued up in this field) share yours with me, I am a first-timer here and feeling pretty overwhelmed at what lies ahead.
I definitely plan on doing a series of posts of before and after, although my plans at the moment focus on more affordable renovations like feature walls, and pretty fabrics rather than bashing down walls et al. Either way I can’t wait to make a place mine and not feel guilty when hammering into a wall! 🙂 I have been collecting odds and ends through-out this year that I know will fit in perfectly, and am now keen on getting a dining table with benches made up. I want the wood to be really chunky and aged, so if you know of anyone in the Cape Town area that specialises in doing this or have any tips in general, please let me know.
Below are ideas of what I like:
