A home tour with Amara

July 18, 2017

Earlier this year I was asked to collaborate with Amara, showcasing and photographing their beautiful products in our home. Featured as a home inspiration page on their blog, you can have a look at the full collection here. Finished just a couple of months ahead of our baby boy arriving, it had completely slipped my mind to share them here too.

Making up for lost time, I thought I’d publish them as a mini-home tour, showing you a little more of our cottage.

Our bedroom

There haven’t been any huge renovations in our bedroom, just a spot of decorating. We planned the room around our beautiful bluebird wallpaper from Laura Ashley, painting the remaining walls in soothing cream. Our bedding is a soft grey, and we’ve chalk painted the furniture to match. (Have a look at our tiled drawer upcycle to see how)

Sometimes I wish we had a white minimalist scandi style bedroom, but then I remember we have two dogs and a baby…there is no way it would stay pristine for long!

The Nursery

I feel like this room has undergone the biggest cosmetic change, and you can see how in my before and after posts. It’s now our little boy’s nursery, and I just love how his toys looks against the geometric wallpaper.

Our lounge

Without a doubt, our lounge has seen more construction work than any other room in our cottage. The installation of our log burner was messy but worth every speck of dust.

Decorated in a pale green palette, it’s the perfect room to relax in. Filled with candles and family photos, a fresh bunch of flowers is the perfect finishing touch. You can have a look at our lounge reveal here.

As the seasons change, we tend to switch up accessories, and our mantle can be described as a constant work in progress.

The Bathroom

Confession time! This isn’t actually our bathroom, but rather my parents. Part of our endless to-do-list, our own bathroom isn’t quite as beautiful, albeit perfectly bearable for the time being. A little accesorising goes a long way though, and you can see our bathroom as it is here.

Meanwhile my parent’s bathroom is like a serene sanctuary, with a bath you could almost get lost in.

Our kitchen isn’t quite to my taste either, and is best described as well-worn. Part of the aforementioned to-do-list, we’re hoping to completely renovate it once we’ve finished our loft conversion (and all the jobs that will come along with it)

So there it is, a whirlwind tour of our home. Still a work in progress, but definitely improved since we moved in just over a year ago…we like to think so anyway!
