My Pinterest Obsession | Dream Home

I saw Angela’s post a while ago titled Dream Home and I felt inspired to give you guys an idea of what my dream home would look like too.

As you most likely know by now, I am a huge lover of Pinterest! I have done a few posts before if you wanted to check those out. I posted about Flat Lays which went down amazingly well with you guys(!), Travel, and Office Space – as well as themed Valentine’s Day and Christmas ones too.


I am loving whites, greys and pinks in bedrooms at the moment which you can probably tell from these photos! Also, I have really got in to plants and succulents recently and I think they’re the perfect addition to a home – and it’s sometimes nice to break up the monochromatic colour scheme. Anything with fairy lights is a must from me too.


Shock horror – some more white and grey! I think these slogan bath mats are just brilliant and I have seen some in both Primark and Urban Outfitters recently. I am generally more of a bath person but I can’t deny that big, waterfall showers with lots of marble tiles are just ridiculously aesthetically pleasing! Again, I really like the splash of green with the plants, I think it warms up the rather clinic looking white at times. I also think there is something about dark grey that really suits bathrooms…. I don’t know why!


Little bit more colour in this one! I have seen these hexagon tiles everywhere at the moment and I think they look so chic in bathrooms and kitchens. I also love the idea of using open cupboards or exposed shelves to store things on – I think it looks great and is also a nice way of ensuring you keep things clean and tidy and avoid clutter. I love copper too so any way that I can sneak it in to my home is right up my street!

Living Room

I have always been obsessed with grey, raised sofas so of course I had to feature those! I like more patterns when it comes to living rooms – patterned, vintage rugs and cushions for example look amazing and are great at creating a homely space. I also have been loving mustard yellow as a pop of colour when using a lot of grey! Finally, I think photo or print walls look amazing in living rooms – I think it is one of the most social areas of the house and so should look one of the best too; something I think photo/print walls are great at as they totally capture someone’s personality.

Did you like anything I included? What would you pick in your dream home?

      I can easily tell why everyone is obsessed with it at the moment! xxx

    I love the bed by the window and the delicate fairy lights, looks so fresh with the white against black colour scheme too! x

    • May 27, 2017 / 9:09 pm

      I love lots of windows and white because it can make the smallest room look so bright and airy! You can never go wrong with fairy lights too, I love things looking cosy at night 🙂 So glad you liked it! xxx

    I really like your ideas Ella! That mat in the bathroom gave me a chuckle XD
    I love the idea of those lights hanging around the bedroom. A neutral colour scheme is also a good idea, it can work with anything, so whatever is in your room will match with it. I also like those hexagon tiles in the kitchen, I also see lots of shelves! They look cool, but for me, I’d prefer a pantry, or you know lower shelves, cause I’m tiny.

      Isn’t the mat fantastic! Haha, I loved it so much!
      I’m obsessed with neutrals because it is so easy to add colour here and there when your tastes/seasons change – rather than being stuck with yellow walls and red sofas! Haha. I love the hexagon tiles too, something a little different! Oh gosh I am so small too, they’re not the most practical of ideas… I must admit! Hahah xxx

    I’ve been into plants so much. I have them in almost every room in the house, including the bathroom. I’m into grey a lot too, we’re painting a wall in our bedroom in the Summer. We’re divided between grey and a dry green we’ve seen around. I have fairy lights on a bookshelf in the living room but I don’t think Rui likes them much lol

    • May 28, 2017 / 5:06 pm

      Ah do you? I love that! Ah that sounds amazing, I would love to see you do a post or something about painting it! xxx

      • May 28, 2017 / 11:57 pm

        We’re painting in the Summer. I’ll probably do a post about it. Thank you, love

        • May 29, 2017 / 1:37 pm

          That sounds great! I’m currently writing my post for you as week speak btw! So excited my lovely xxx

    Love the grey, white, and blush combination in the third bedroom. Neutral colors in the home are my favorite!

    • May 28, 2017 / 2:22 pm

      It looks so cool doesn’t it, I love seeing it everywhere now! xxx

  5. May 28, 2017 / 3:08 am

    What a great idea for a blog post!! And I love how beautiful your ideas are, I would love to decorate my home in a similar fashion one day

    • May 28, 2017 / 2:20 pm

      Thank you so much, all courtesy of Angela I must admit!! I have always loved interior design, it has been a big passion of mine but I feel like I would suck at it for a living because I would want everything my own style haha xxx

  6. May 28, 2017 / 3:21 am

    Totally agree with your statement about grey in the bathroom–it’s still clean and refined, but not as cold as white. I also love all the plants in the photos! I plan on having lots of plants in my next apartment.

    • May 28, 2017 / 2:19 pm

      Yes! Exactly why I love it! Yeah I love the plants (I would suck at keeping them alive I’m sure – fake ones ftw) just to add some life and colour where I keep everything else neutral! I really love hanging plants, I think they look super cool xx

      • May 28, 2017 / 8:06 pm

        I agree! I have a terrible green thumb, but I may be able to keep succulents alive! Hanging plants do look very boho and neat I think I might like a mini palm tree!

        • May 29, 2017 / 1:40 pm

          Oh my gosh yes, that sounds amazing! I have always wanted a Bonsai tree but I would be terrified that I would kill it 🙁 xxx

  7. May 28, 2017 / 6:31 am

    It looks like we have similar tastes 🙂 I love neutrals but I’ve been loving vibrant colors as well. My dream home would definitely have that shade of grey In a couple of the rooms.

    • May 28, 2017 / 2:16 pm

      Ahh that is so cool! That’s why I love neutrals though – so easy to throw in some amazing colours alongside it! xx

  8. May 28, 2017 / 1:52 pm

    This post is so aesthetically pleasing to me! <3

    • May 28, 2017 / 2:15 pm

      I love all the colours together when they’re in like a moodboard style – it looks so good! xx

  9. May 28, 2017 / 6:15 pm

    This is so aesthetically pleasing!!! My dream house is super similar to this: simple and chic, I love it!! xx

    I loved a lot of your ideas but that bath mat was my favorite! 😂 I love the copper in the kitchen a lot too. Your dream home looks amazing and I totally want to do one of my own!

    • May 29, 2017 / 1:39 pm

      Hahaha I couldn’t help myself, I had to include it!! Omg yes I would love it if you did one too! xxx

    • May 29, 2017 / 1:39 pm

      Isn’t it cool! I am so obsessed with copper too – I bought a copper wall clock from Primark the other day and it was only £6! xxx

      • May 29, 2017 / 3:10 pm

        I love Primark, Dunelm too could spend all day in there!
