interior dreams

I think most girls have their wedding planned since they were really young. It really fascinates me that they just know what they want; the perfect wedding consisting of the perfect wedding dress, cake, guests, location and even the perfect husband. To be honest, I've thought about my perfect home more so than my wedding. Actually, I haven't even started thinking of my own wedding, if I have one that is. I know that in my home, I want a big book case with lots and lots of books. Books with binding falling off, books that are hundreds of pages long, books that have just illustrations or even magazine collections of Vogue or Elle Decor (Maybe by then I can afford to get monthly subscriptions instead of every other month!). I can also imagine my house with some vintage furnitures but definitely having that 'lived in' feeling. Well.. I'm only twenty one so I still have plenty of time to decide but a girl can dream, right? :)

Moving back home after graduating, I've wanted to re-decorate my room. Nothing drastic but small somethings that could really change the tone of my bedroom! I've been looking at interior design books and blogs, and I was thrilled when I came across Grant K. Gibson's blog post about a room 'make-over'. He had brilliant ideas for turning a living room in to the Living Room... If you get what I mean :) You can see for your self right here. It just shows that creativity and final touches to even a cushion or having colourful book covers can give a room instant character and that you don't really have to spend lots!

Also, my friend did a HomeGoods stylescope questionaire to find out what kind of style of room you'd feel happiest. I got Elegant Classic but I think it really depends on what mood I'm in since I got something else before haha :) what did you guys get?? It's actually really exciting and interesting! :)


  1. Hi Emily! Out of curiosity I tried the HomeGoods quiz and I got Global casual :) The photo of the huge library is amazing!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog :)

  2. I'm the same! I've always thought about my 'perfect home' rather than a 'perfect wedding'..a wedding is just one day..a home is, well its obvious haha. Nice blog x
