We Bought a Home – Sharing My Pinterest Board for Home Décor

We Bought a Home!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that my little family and I recently purchased our first home (since we’re expanding and all!).  We decided to build our home  from scratch simply because the housing market in Indiana is great, we wanted to be the first guests in our home, and we weren’t in a huge rush (home décor dreams). However, it took us over 10 months and although the process wasn’t a walk in the park, I am excited to be out of a 750 square foot apartment and moved into our 3000 square foot house.

I have always loved home décor so having this blank canvas to work with is super exciting! For months, I have been pinning different inspirations on Pinterest for each room in the house and, while doing so, I realized that I love modern contemporary style décor with a hint of rustic design. So using my Pinterest board I will be bringing each room alive slowly (I definitely don’t wanna rush the process).

Whether you live in a quaint apartment like we did or a larger than life house that needs decorating, make sure you transform the space to be yours. It is so important to be happy and comfortable in your space! So take a look below at my inspirations and let me know what you think. Also, would you like me to talk about my experience with the home buying process? If so, let me know and I will be sure to dedicate a blog post to that.

    Beautiful post Aicha. I love everything about the decor. Can you shed light or post on your new house journey? I live in New York and would love to relocate somewhere with my family in future where we can “ actually feel” space. It will help my family plan towards that. Also, I saw a beautiful pendant light in Diari’s room. Where did you get that, and how useful has it been to you and Diari so far? Thank you for sharing those beautiful home decor stuffs!

      Hi Sahada,

      Thank you for taking the time and reading the blog. I definitely plan on writing a separate post about the home buying process, as a previous resident of New York I can definitely relate to your struggle when it comes to the lack of space. As for the pendant light, it was installed during the building process, keep an eye out for that upcoming blog post.
