Finding My Interiors Inspiration

I think soon we will be able to tackle our dining room; it’s currently a bit of an eyesore, which explains why I rarely take pictures in there.  We have a gorgeous family sized table now with a bench but we desperately need to have the walls skimmed and new flooring added.  I have been getting some interiors inspiration in preparation; I want quite a classic look.  I would really like to purchase a dresser similar to the one pictured, it’s perfect to showcase a few belongings without making the room appear cluttered.  I love the quirky details too like a teacup lamp.

Our dining room is a decent sized but it has some flaws, it’s very dark in there perfect for an intimate meal for two but not practical for the majority of the time.  Although as of yet I am not sure what type of lights to have fitted, I would rather have lots of natural light, but the window in our room is quite small compared to every other room in the house.

I want a bright cheerful countryside dining room, with our existing big table, lots of character, fresh flowers from the garden and a serving of afternoon tea.  It’s interesting to read that the colour magnolia is quite clinical, we are guilty of it being our go to paint choice… perhaps we should learn to experiment and try pastel colours for a change!  Otherwise I think every room in our house will be magnolia and it probably does get a bit repetitive after a while.  Although its grey that interests me at the moment, I have noticed more and more people using it effectively.  I think its time I thought about adding more character through the choice of colour, furniture and lighting.  A lot of the original features have gone from our old house, but we could look at making the best of what is left.  We have high ceilings and spacious rooms to work with.

Baytree Interiors are all about creating a home you love.  We have bought the forever house but are still in the process of filling it with furniture and accessories.  Each room is probably almost double the size of that in our precious home, so our scarce belongings look quite lost.  With one credit card gone and another with a big dent made in what we owe, we really can think about renovating the house again and after reading that article about interiors I am excited to get cracking again.  Our previous house had a kitchen diner, not a separate dining room like we can have here, so its time to get some ideas and move forward!

My parents like showing visiting friends our house, but I do get embarrassed with the state of some of the rooms.  We needed so much building work done to the outside the interior is sadly lacking.  Although each year sees us achieve something new so hopefully 2017 will see more progress, I just will take it slowly and try not to feel overwhelmed with how much still needs to be finished.
