As you are all aware from several tweets/blog posts, I am currently attempting to get my foot on the ladder and buy my first home at the age of 24! Needless to say I am saving my hardest to get the best deposit together that I can and that sometimes means going without new clothes etc, but I know it will pay off when I have my own home.
As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time combing Pinterest for home inspiration and browsing shops for bits and pieces that slowly seem to be mounting up. One area that I always fantasize about would be the living room/lounge as that’s where I picture myself cosied up watching endless amounts of Netflix and eating
salad Sweets & Crisps!!! I have been browsing shops in the last few months and stumbled upon Rodgers of York. When I say stumbled, I knew it was there but I always anticipated that everything they stocked would be way out of my price range. I was pleasantly surprised when I realised that they have a fantastic range and so much of it is affordable for a first time buyer like myself. I have decided to create a moodboard of my fantasy living room using some of the fab collection from Rodgers of York as well as some other homewares that I love.
First up I created a Neutral Inspired moodboard with a gorgeous cream sofa with soft yellow and grey furnishings. I selected wood flooring in a grey colour as I think it really compliments the colours of the furniture and the wallpaper etc. All the items can be found at Rodgers of York from some of the amazing suppliers that they stock in store.
I decided to create a second moodboard with a more country/checked feel to it. I would love this in my home with lots of stag print cushions etc. I already have a model stag head which was a gift for christmas last year and can’t wait to buy my home so I can put it up.
Once again, all the products are stocked through Rodgers of York and I absolutely love all the dark hues. I adore the pale wallpaper with the world print on it like a treasure map, this is something I would love in my home. The sofa looks super comfy and with some pale wool cushions on there or terracotta, I think it would make it even comfier.
So needless to say, I spent a fair amount of time trudging around Rodgers earlier this year getting lots and lots of inspiration. I even went up and down the carpet section checking them all out! Normally I’m not a fan of home or DIY shopping but since I have buying my home top of my agenda at the moment then it seems fitting to spend lots of time browsing the shops! If you haven’t been to Rodgers of York before then I suggest checking this lovely place out. It’s located at Monks Cross in York and from the outside doesn’t look that big but it’s a real Tardis inside and has sooo much for you to choose from.
I am also loving block wooden furniture at the moment like dining sets etc and if you are looking for some fab pieces then check out the Trade Furniture Company who have some fabulous wooden pieces with some great Indian inspired furniture.
I hope you liked my home inspiration. Have you done any moodboards like this recently?
