Mood Board & Home Inspiration

In a few weeks, Tom and I will be moving in together. The flat will be fully equipped but unfurnished. That means a big blank canvas for us to play with and really put our stamps on. The downside, though, if we are not careful it can quickly become an expensive challenge.

We both have very peculiar taste, with a love for the bizarre and oddities, as well as a penchant for Scandinavian minimal home style.

Bearing those facts in mind, I created a mood board “For Our Flat” on Pinterest.
I pretty much Pinterest everything I’m interested in. From recipes, DIY beauty tips, fashion to kitties.
I find it so helpful to be able to put aside ideas and visuals that will help shape the style we want to achieve in our flat. Also, these pictures being very dream-like and perfect, we are not trying to replicate them. The mood boards are simply a starting point and a guide to what is closest to our idea of a good home for us.

Another key aspect of our decoration plans, is to DIY as much as possible and upcycle pre-owned and loved furniture.
Using sites such as Freecycle.org.uk  or Gumtree, we’ve been able to get a rough idea of what we will be able to get for free. Charity shop, flea markets, and auctions are also good options will be sure to check out.

In the end, what will make our place a home, is how we will be able to inject both of our personalities into the flat decor and ultimately turn it into a safe and pleasing space for us. Somewhere we will enjoy to spend time together and alone. A place we will enjoy coming back to, where we will share a table with family and friends and most importantly a place where making memories will be fun and beautiful.
