There’s a first time for everything…
At first I was a bit skeptical about this post, since it’s more on the Planning and not on the actual moving out but after a sweet conversation with a friend ( hey friend!) I was like, you know what!, the planning is just as exciting so why not share my thoughts and hopes with you amazing folk!
I have been dreaming about this since forever (I refer you to my previous hinting posts haha) and when it finally came to the point of actual planning I literally had to tell myself
You are not a kid anymore Vee, you are finally growing up!
And this honestly felt better than that time I got a neat Nakumatt voucher to buy my first Harry Potter book (got the book but didn’t use the voucher). I used to hate picking out curtain fabric with mum at that always busy place at Capital Center but now I’m busy adding it to my to do list, asking mum about it, making time and stuff. Anyway, let me not bore you guys with my “who would have thought” statements and let’s get into my current interior decor options, shall we?
I want a style that speaks volumes of my character and personality, so with that said anyone who knows me would know that means a lot of solids and some minimal print.(This is however subject to change because sometimes you are a Woman and sometimes the woman changes her mind and most of the time I am that woman changing her mind)
I would have loved my own personal white house, but I am a very practical human being (it comes with age, my birthday was a few days ago) and I consider that my very jovial 6 year old niece visiting my white house would bring a lot of change, particularly on the white. So I settled for majorly the not so light solids and maybe bring out some life and light through a couple of print throw pillows, interesting curtains and some necessary accessories.
We all already know Dinku knows what’s up in terms of affordable quality furniture. So you already know I was way up in their website.
They were without a doubt my very first choice when it came to where I would get my very first piece of furniture at a good price. Being my first time I didn’t want to go testing waters and drowning in awful choices.
Personally, I will go for either a dark Grey or black chair when the time comes for me to make my purchase, this is because I plan on playing with a light shade of grey as my living room carpet, it’s a theme I plan on building throughout my space, with a pop of a few bright colors here and there, like a mixture of dark red, dark grey and light grey towels in the bathroom sounds pretty amazing to me.
I know this is not exactly what I’ve talked about above, but I just wanted you guys to see the blending that comes with these very attractive colors. The red pops perfectly in this grey walled bathroom, matched with the lovely white cabinets and towels. I will of course spare my guests the watch present in this particular picture, instead I shall shame them for staying too long in the bathroom like any other normal host would.
So this is either going to be an extremely long post or I can just stop here and promise to write soon about the more exciting things to come. I will definitely try my best to put the links of most of my purchases (that excludes most if not all of my electronics unless Luthuli Avenue has a website) and I hope to talk to you guys soon.
