Interior Inspiration

 (90% of the items I own are bought on sale and here are a few places in relation:

 I've been randomly sharing photographs of certain parts of my home on my Instagram and Facebook and I've had people ask me all different kinds of questions in regards to home decor. I am definitely not a pro but I can recommend Pinterest as one way to find inspiration and spur your creative side.
Other than that I have a few things I can share that I found have worked for me: 
  1. If not now when?! Sometimes in life people wait for the right moment, job, house, partner etc. to progress to the next level but I say, start now! It doesn't matter whether you are renting an apartment or you own a home, make your house a home - after all, its the place you come to every day - make it worth coming to.  
  2. Its not going to be overnight!
  3. Know what you want! - what is out there on the market will always be enticing and will come with a very good offer but stick to what you really want!
  4. Quality is a very important factor and sometimes good quality furniture is expensive but remember Gumtree, eBay etc. are always alternative outlets where you will find people selling furniture still in excellent/good condition that they don't want/need anymore. You can type in things like 'Furniture in your city' ; 'Dwell Furniture' ; 'Next Furniture' etc. depending on what you are looking for and what brands you prefer.
  5. Be willing to wait - if you stay in the UK you should know that everything eventually goes on sale and theres always offers all year round. If you are like myself, not moved much by the latest trends then I would recommend Boxing Day as the best time of the year to buy most interiors.
  6. Know your budget!
  7. If something doesn't serve its purpose anymore, let it go! Minimalism is a big deal for myself but then again that might be different for you.
Heres a book I've seen a friend share called, 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up', I've read good reviews on it so maybe that might be resourceful.

I hope I have managed to cover most of what I know and if theres anything else you would like to know drop me an email at anitahnjonga@gmail.com and I will be sure to get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks for stopping by.
