Our house is currently on the market and we are eagerly looking for a new home for our little family. We love our Victorian terrace but we have outgrown it and would like to move into a slightly better area. Obviously we have a budget for our move but with the change in area, it isn't going to buy us any more house for our money.
To make the most of what house we can buy we are going to have to buy a house that needs some work. Probably major work. Unfortunately it is the only way that we'll be able to buy a house big enough in the area that we want. I'm both excited and nervous about this because I know that with three children it will be an enormous undertaking but I'm also looking forward to the creative challenge and the chance to make a home that is really ours.
Luckily there is plenty of inspiration online to be found when looking for ideas. Pinterest is an obvious one and I have really gone to town lately building boards with all my ideas. (You can follow my Pinterest boards here). But there are also plenty of other sites which can help get your creative juices flowing for decoration ideas. Here are some examples of what my dream house will look like when it is finished.
I'd love a bathroom with a roll top bath and lovely crisp white tiles.

A baby boys room in white, red and blue would be so cute. I love the old radiator in here too which provides real character.

A gorgeous, peaceful and grown up bedroom is high up on my list of wants. I quite fancy going for the all white look although the hubby is dubious!

An open plan kitchen / diner is an absolute must. I want to be able to cook dinner whilst supervise the kids homework and chat to them about their day. Bespoke kitchens like this would be a dream come true.

Ah well, in my dreams eh?! It might take us a while but I hope we'll get there and be able to create something similar.
