A few of you asked to see some pics of our new place here in Aberdeen so I thought I'd share some on my blog. It's been a really busy few days, but I'm so pleased with how it's all turned out! I've mentioned in a few posts how I've recently been drawn to white (it makes the room feel so much bigger) and scandinavian interiors, so we've tried to stick with that theme in mind and keep everything unfussy and minimal.
We've filled the living room with lots of personal touches too. The painting was kindly gifted to us by my amazingly talented mother in law - she actually painted this the day before Finlay was born! It's suitably titled 'Love Over Waterloo'. So perfect! Coincidentally the corner lampshade goes with it so well. This was designed by Hatti, a lovely girl I went to school with. She's incredibly gifted and has a range of textiles and paintings! Lastly on the art front is our Kelli Murray prints, which we've hung up beside the desk. Kelli's another artist I'm a big fan of (plus her blog is amazing too).
We also went for an Expedit Bookcase from Ikea. It's such a great way to display books and other decorative bits and bobs. I can't wait to fill it properly over the next few months! The kitchen is another one of my favourite rooms. We've placed a long banquet type table to fill one of the narrower spaces in it, with mix matched chairs and two long mirrors above! The paint we used was Elephant's Breath by Farrow & Ball, to add a little warmth and contrast. I can't take credit for these ideas as my mother in law (again) is the one with the brilliant eye and suggested this!
I'll be sharing pictures of Finlay's nursery in a separate post as I have way too much to talk about, but if you'd like a sneak peek then check out my Instagram ;) I hope you liked having a nosey into our new home. I can tell we're going to be so happy here!
