~ New House with Craft Room! ~

Well here we go as promised, an update on how the house move and settling in has gone. When I look back at the photos from before we moved I can't believe how much more 'lived in' it looks.

We have mainly added colourful accessories to brighten the cream rooms up.
Living Room

We have added lots of lime green to counteract the dark brown furniture.


I love my kitchen! Can't wait to get the range cooker from my boyfriend's dad's when he moves. There have already been lots of lovely meals cooked for friends, with many more planned!

Dining Room

I really like how its a kitchen diner it gives a good social atmosphere when having friends over.


The games room. This is home to our playstation 3 and wii. Its a lovely room off the dinign room which thankfully doesn't get too much sun!

Spare Bedroom

This is the only room we have completely painted as when the previous owners sold the house they removed a pink boreder from the top of the walls wwhich pulled some of the paint off. I'm really pleased with the final effect.

Master Bedroom

Now this is our bedroom which is at the front of the house. It does get quite warm but the blinds are a godsend. I'm really surprised my boyfriend agreed when I said I wanted to go purple! But I love it!

Craft Room

I absolutely love this room and it has given me lots more storage for my crafty stash. Am just waiting for some storage inserts for the expedit unit then it will almost be complete!


There is a fantastic sized garden with a huge patio to the side which will be great for summer BBQs. Doesn't really need much work at the moment, just a few bushes trimming back.

All in all we have really fell on our feet with this house and it definately looks like we've been here longer than 4 weeks!

Happy viewing!

Brilliant! I've been waiting to have a good nosy at your new place! It looks lovely, and you've sure done a good job of putting your mark on it in such a short time. It's really good to see you both so happy :-)

Hoping to get an invite to one of these summer barbecues you mention...
