My room makeover::
This is my first home and I fell in love with the house the moment i stepped into it, however, the whole house needed redecorating to my taste. This was a great project and i really enjoyed discovering my own taste and style.

The simplest chnage was to paint the bright yellow walls white, creating the blank canvas i needed. I removed the old fireplace surround to create cleaner lines and a more modern visual. I really love the Scandinavian style and mid century decor so this has inspried the finished room. Most of my pieces are from Ikea as i had a budget to stick to, but ive tried to add other pieces so its not as obvious. Overall including sofas and other furniture i spent approximately £1500.
My makeover advice::
Go for it! For me i loved every minute and i love peoples reactions when they come into my house. However the once bitten by the decorating bug its hard to stop- beware :-)
What I love most about my new space::
I love the mix between the old style of the building with a more modern decor. I love how cosy my new room is.
