Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Renovation Time | Interiors Mood Board | Scandi Home Inspiration*

We finally had a time frame for our renovation work to get started - mid to end of October. i had given up on all hope of it ever getting completed and now it actually feels within touching distance and that means I can start to look forward to ideas and inspiration for our new spaces.

Boho cushions
Soft Furnishing Inspiration from Eyes Of India

I have done posts before on kitchen inspiration but I am now finding myself lusting after the decorative pieces and the soft furnishings, I think it is the darker nights drawing in that leaves me feeling the need to make things cosy and warm, and lived in.

I am not daft, I know that these lovely, finishing touches will be the last thing to be considered and budgeted for but it is these things that keep me excited about the project. It is the light at the end of a very long, windy tunnel.

Getting architects drawings, planning permission and a builder has not been ages and well it has take 2 years. We started all of this when I was pregnant with Alex and he is now 15 months old, bloody ridiculous if I am honest. Sadly we were let down by an architect and builders are just so incredibly busy at the moment by us. But our new architect saved the day and has given us exactly what we want and it has all been signed off and given the go ahead. Fingers crossed for a quick turn around! I will talk about what work we are having done another day and probably do a tour of how it is now over on my YouTube channel but back to the Mood board.

On the mood board above that is just inundated with cushions, they are all from a fairly boho business called Eyes Of India. Although I prefer a scandi based style a splash of colour is always welcome and needed in a house with young children but also some of those GEO patterns are just gorgeous.

Scandi Themed Accessories from Matalan
All of the above accessories are from Matalan's new homeware release and I could buy almost all of it. I have decided i will share my bathroom thoughts separately because there was about 12 things I felt like I needed right now, even though the extension hasn't even started!
