Magpie Girl Home Tour....

Magpie-Girl-home-tourA few weeks after Dave & I got married contacted me with an exciting project they were working on- Made Unboxed. An online community of real people and real homes. Kinda like a pinterest dedicated just to homes and the people that live in them. You can browse these amazing homes and the products they have bought from, buy those products if you fancy or even contact the owners about a non made item in their home.
They sent a photographer to our home to take some shots of Dave & I and our home. We had only been in our home 2 months at the time so I was a little panicked by how unfinished the decor and furnishings were.

Our living room is an odd shape so trying to break the room into a dining area and living area was important to maximise space.

You can see the rest of my Unboxed images at here.

  11. Your home looks lovely, so beautifully styled, homely and inviting. I love that your lounge furniture isn't all the same, the feature chair is a great focal point and looks super stylish, you follow a colour theme of neutrals and pastel so the space is interesting but not chaotic.
