Making your House a Home | My Fire place

Making a house a home can take so much time.. still 3 years of living in our bungalow I'm tweaking bits here and there and we still have small odd jobs that need doing! 
I don't think a house is every really complete!

One room I'm really happy with is our living room, mainly because we've got a huge beautiful stone fire place with a log burner built in. Definitely the centre piece of the living area its very open and bright and what i love to do is find cute ornaments for the mantle piece as well as always have a vase of flowers! 

The log burner itself is a must for us not only does it look beautiful but its so practical on the cold days and evenings. Our house is powered by an AGA to run the central heating so having an extra burner is really needed! I do hate the cold! 

Ive really been enjoining reading some 'Style at Home' magazines they've really given me some great inspiration for decorating and furnishing the house. Im also obsessed with Pinterest still , mainly for Home DIY projects to cut costs.

I got a couple of cute side tables recently from a shop called JYSK its a rather cheap and interested Norwegian store which sells some really nice 'Scandi' type furniture.

Although I'm more into the Traditional types of furniture pieces, i do love mixing the old and new as i think it really goes well. 

Im currently still deciding on colours for our hallway to paint at the moment then ill be moving on to the living room.

I hope youve enjoyed this post .. Whats your favourite room in your house?
