I haven’t been writing about interior design too much since the blog went live.
Interior design is one of my first love.
I’ve been lucky enough to be raised in beautiful interiors, but let’s be honest, interior design can be very expensive … And i hate that now with those chain stores (which will remain nameless), we all end up with the same interiors – not COOL!
Here I will show you pieces I believe to make the best IT girl living room interior, those are my personal taste, the type of things i would have in my house, or even dream of having. Some affoardable some, other not so much.
But I have now realized interior design, is like fashion … it is an investment for me, and it should be for you too. Buy things that you know you will still have in your house 10 years from now!
Before we start, we have to think of color … some people like to go with different shades of 1 color. Greys for example, or browns/nudes. I personally like using accent colors. For example a white and grey base with accents of light pink, teal, blue or yellow for instance – to me color gives life to an interior.
For inspiration, i’d say Pinterest is probably the best as you know.
Here are some of my inspirations

Another good tip from me to you, try 2nd hand furniture stores. I love finding old furniture and repainting them with a pink, or turquoise …
And of course let’s not forget about accessories. Accessories such as ashtrays, vases, flowers, books, photo frames, plants etc. those are massively important for your interior. They make your interior lived in.
Maybe I’ll do another blog on accessories only!
Hope you enjoyed.
As per usual…Pure Inspiration. I am LOVING the idea of the racks with the books or in my case I would be putting up images. I am saving that. I love the lamp that bends over I have been looking for one of those for a little bit now for my beauty area in my bedroom. I only have the one you got me at the moment for lighting and its not that sufficient. The article is written with care and love. Nice work Clemmy xx
