As you may know if you follow me over on Instagram or Twitter, we took the unenviable decision to move house during a global pandemic. While it great because we had a lot of spare time to get the move sorted, it also meant we haven’t yet ventured out to shops to choose furniture and decor, so all our rooms still look like little empty boxes which is the complete opposite of our last house with it’s bright, rich colours and textured wallpapers!
