Finessing your interior design with printed artwork

It seems we’ve been in the “finishing stages” or our renovation project for over a year now and in truth, that’s exactly how long it’s been! The building phase of our renovation was relatively quick (approx 18 weeks in total) as we paid external contractors to do it all, totally re-designing the downstairs of the house and converting the attic space in one hit. But the interior design, decorating and finishing touches were always going to be left to us and gradual due to cash-flow, growing our family and time!

We painted the entire downstairs living space white and got that to a point where it was 95% finished (we’d like to change the sofa and some of the furniture eventually) and totally liveable and enjoyable as a space. The rest of the house we did room by room according to what we needed/used the most. However, I don’t know about you, but a room never feels entirely finished until you finesse it with textiles, soft furnishings and art work on the walls.

House by John Lewis – Modern Living Solutions

I’m back onto The House Project, our home renovation with a renewed sense of vigour, inspiration and enthusiasm. We did quite a lot of decorating when we moved in over the summer, but we were busy, tired and skint (!), so had to put a lot of the finishing touches on hold. We prioritised the kitchen, living space and bathrooms and made steps to start the bedrooms, but there is a lot that’s incomplete and not quite there in terms of our interior design ideas. I’d also become a bit overwhelmed with how each space should look and function, so a bit of headspace and a re-think was much needed!…So after a few month’s break, I’m back to clearing boxes, sorting furniture and finding new interior design inspo! And where better to start than with good ol’ trustworthy John Lewis…
