Making the house our home

Moving into the forever house seems a million years off when everyone in the offices has got their party hats on, pulling crackers and indulging in the Christmas cheer.  So to get through this I am being constructive putting together a spreadsheet with hubbie of all estimated costs AND most importantly working on the vision!  I have mentioned it before but its continually developing as a theme.  I now need a stove for the living room!  These looks so quaint and homely, I will just have to borrow my parents dog to curl up in front of this Charnwood stove for the authentic finishing touch.  There is nothing like a roaring fire when it’s chilly outside.


The only problem with a living room that inviting, I might actually find it hard to remove myself away from the stove and do the cleaning or other jobs around the house.  I will just be mesmerised by the flames and enjoying the heat!

I think I might have to subscribe to a home magazine to make sure the theme continues throughout the house so I do have a reason to leave the comfort of the living room and explore more widely.  With a few issues of Country Homes and Interiors I might get the hang of interior design.  Our current living room although nice has no continuous theme.  It is not classic in the slightest.


I want a living room to warm my heart not just my cold feet!  So the visit to the Stove Site is just step one of achieving that!  I might even start searching the charity shops for vintage accessories, least it will keep my mind off the waiting!  Then I can get hubbie to start thinking about the palette's for all his painting efforts (I am going to suggest white or something more earthy).  It would be amazing to have a room people step into and take a deep breath in because it amazes them!  We will probably not pull that off, but it would be fun to give it our best try!
