It is that time of week again folks – Favorite Things Friday!
This week we are going to be looking at some of my favorite ideas for my future dream home…
I love this idea of a Patchwork Bathroom Backsplash – I don’t think I would ever be able to decide on just one tile, so doing a patchwork like this would be fab. And it would be easier to spread the cost too, just collect different tiles over time and add to it every now & then.
Here is a similar idea for the kitchen – using loads of different colours. I have actually started my own collection of tiles, ones that I have decorate over the years that I will add to a backsplash like this in the future!
Reusing old furniture is great – and you get to put your own mark on it as well. This is a great way to upcycle and creat a bit of extra storage for organising bags and rucksacks. I have one sat ready and waiting for it’s new coat of paint, and for some shelves/rails/hooks to be put inside.
Another upcycling project – a drawer-less dresser turned fabric storage or towel storage for a bathroom – I love it! Totally colour customisable as well. I am thinking about doing this with sheets and blankets etc when I get a bigger place.
I think this is a really cute idea for using up that understairs space – a sofa or a bed which can be used as extra seating, or somewhere to snuggle up read for a bit. (I am pretty sure this pic has been taken of a doll’s house, but the idea still stands)
This is a great idea too – using jewellery as curtain tie-backs. Especially perfect in a room that you use regularly, but don’t always close the curtains in.
An easy idea for storing luggage if you don’t have a loft or garage space. This way it is still easily accessible, but completely out-of-the-way.
If I ever have a flat/house big enough that I have a spare room, I am totally turning it into a dressing room/walk-in closet! It probably won’t be as elegant as the one in the picture above, but it will be better than having all my clothes and things strewn around my bedroom.
I think having a big jar like this, or even a basket, with travel size and hotel shampoos & soaps in a spare bathroom for when you have guest round is a great idea. When I travel I tend to take my own shampoo with me anyway, so I have a little collection of shampoo bottles and soaps from hotels already. Gotta find the perfect container for them now.
I am always looking to add colour to my flat – and this is a great way of doing just that. Also another fab way to upcycle a tired piece of furniture. Painting the main piece in a single colour (in this case black) and then covering the drawers in wallpaper! Cool! And totally interchangeable too!
Another fun way to add some colour – and this time it is to a place that can sometimes be a bit dull & dreary. Painting the uprights of stairs in a rainbow gives a bright boost of colour, and will bring a smile to your face every time you walk up the stairs!
A pretty way to showcase a perfume collection. and if you have a dressing room like the one above, then it is the perfect place to have a display like this. Keeps them all in the same place too!
I would love love love love love to have a balcony outside my window! Somewhere that I could go to get a bit of fresh air, sit and read a book, or stargaze at night.
And last of all today, huge mirrors! I love them! I was lucky that the last person to live in my flat left one behind, it doesn’t have a gorgeous frame like this one though. But I will be getting some decorative wood soon to create my own frame.
What do you think adds that extra touch to a lovely home? Have you got any great ideas for upcycling furniture? Let us know in the comments, or send us a pin on our Pinterest page!
