HOME INSPIRATION

The search for the perfect flat is over! This past weekend, L and I moved into our first home together: a cozy, newly-renovated, 2 bedroom flat in London. Saturday and Sunday were dedicated to moving in, unpacking, and getting settled. The neighborhood is lovely with lots of greenery and a private garden for the residents. Pictures to come soon, of course!

So excited for our new place!
Now that we're all moved in, the fun begins... decorating! I've been taking on the process slowly, making sure I know what I want before I start impulse buying (but everyone needs a silver tiger statue, right?). We've decided to start with the living room as it's the most important room to both of us. I'm leaning towards neutral, soothing shades of black, white, grey, and light blue. Pinterest has sure been a great help in getting ideas; here's what I'm currently loving:

Pottery Barn has been one of my favorite places to shop for home goods; I swoon every time I'm browsing online or in store. My favorites this season:

All items found at PotteryBarn.com
I'll definitely be pinning more items for inspiration as I decorate our flat!

Until next time!
