Home Life in Manchester

bedroom decor inspiration blog

So, I moved! I kept it pretty quiet and i've barely spoken about it on my blog or social, but in case you speculated - yep, I moved back to the North. I officially live in Manchester now in a perfectly bloggeresque apartment (because what else could a girl want) and decorating is finally almost finished! After years of living in student accommodation and renting grotty rooms in huge Victorian houses in London where you have about 4 housemates, i'm finally in a grown up living situation where homeware is actually something that you want to spend your money on. Who knew i'd become such an adult?

When it comes to homeware, my tastes vary and I like to mix it up a bit. Influences vary from art to traditional asian themes and you can probably tell I have a little bit of a mismatch of both. After seeing the Cheval Three Quays hotel suite by Ben De Lisi for his current SS16 collection (adorned with Frenchies, of course), I had to snap up some pieces from the collection - especially the vases.
I opted for bright colours with accessorising to contrast the blank white canvas that the apartment is to give it more of a home studio feel and i'm in love with the way it's turned out. A successful first adult home!
