Back to Basics – French Country Living

 

 We are still looking in anticipation for the right house! thing is, because it is going to be a forever home, we have such a lot of criteria and we just don’t have the spare cash these days to do all of the alterations ourselves, so that makes everything a very slow process indeedy!

Spring always gets me wanting everything in cheery red gingham.......

But having said all of that, just this week we did view a house that we quite liked…but I am saying nothing more than that atm…I don’t want to tempt fate…but hopefully…and PLEASE keep your fingers crossed! we shall have a bit of luck there!

Shabby chic living

The de-cluttering has come to a halt! because the last few weeks I have wanted to do another bootfair and the weather has been awful!…so I havent been able to sell any more of our unwanted shabby kitsch collectables for a while!  We are also surrounded in moving boxes…slowly this house is loosing all of its personality, as the boxes get filled up with the things we want to keep! so many decisions though!

Rosie and Freddy are both nagging me to have a more modern home style for the next house…and to be honest I think I would like that too, but I think their idea of modern isn’t quite my idea! and I think there might be a few clashes there lol! But I have told them both that they can have their bedrooms decorated how they like lol! and the rest of the house I will decorate how I like hahaha!…afterall…I’ll be the one doing all the painting and wallpapering, so it is only fair aye!

I have been checking out some different styles that I like online and also keeping a scrapbook for the new house regarding furnishings and accessories that I like too…I have always done this kind of thing, not just for moving, but for say Craft ideas, Christmas ideas etc etc…I k

now pinterest is a good place for ideas, but I so love the actual cutting out and sticking in shananigans 😉 its also interesting looking back on the books from many years ago and the changing influences in home decor…

I think I have said before, but I fancy a Back to Basic’s style decor for our new home this time…no kitsch bits…just a lovely white relaxing atmosphere with rickerty old peeling painted French Furniture (ha we have plenty of that!) and all my lovely vintage French Enamel, with a few  interesting unusual pieces here and there!

I hope you like the pictures I have included in this Happy Update…they are all of the new style I hope to be creating in our new chapter…( I still have plenty of gorgeous pieces, so dont worry!) Whether it will materialize remains to be seen lol!…But watch this space!

Bye for now my lovelies…I hope you are all keeping well…drop me a line below if you fancy a chat xx
