About your house: Evija Roberts
What type of home do you have?
We bought our first home last July and it was described as “Chalet Style Bungalow”. It is a 2 storey building with 3 bedrooms and a lovely garden wrapping around the house.
Who lives there and how long have you lived there?
My husband, pug girl Coco and I have been living in the house for 10 months now.
Describe your interior style in 5 words.
Modern Traditional with a twist!
What’s your favourite room in the house and why?
My favourite room is definitely my craft room! It is a place where I create, brainstorm, stage photos and simply be myself. It is my little space and safe haven, where I can get lost and not think about anything and just create.
Is there anything unusual about your home?
The kitchen layout is a little unusual and we have a servant’s hatch which is not very common nowadays. We are planning big kitchen renovations in the next couple of years, where we will knock a few walls down, so it will all be open plan and exactly how we want it!
What’s your favourite home gadget?
I am not really into gadgets as such I am more obsessed with my DIY tools! 🙂
What’s your best tip for decorating your home on a budget?
Most of our house has been decorated and furnished on a budget (apart from the bathroom and some key furniture pieces). I love to upcycle and turn something old into something beautiful and one of a kind. Try doing things yourself, shop during sales and invest in key pieces only.
Where do you like to shop for home decor?
I love TK Maxx as they have some unique pieces and good quality items. I also love Wayfair and Achica online shops as well as H&M home section, you can find some gems in there!
What’s the last item you bought for your house?
Last item I bought was a ceramic bathroom set for our new bathroom.
What is your next project in the home?
We are just about finishing the bathroom renovations and decided to have a little break after that. I have a few furniture projects in store which I cannot wait to start. Then in a year or two we will be attempting to do the kitchen/dining room/living room renovations!
Where do you get inspiration for home decor?
I love looking online for various designs, Pinterest is definitely one of my top places to go to get ideas. I also love Home Design magazines and certain home renovation TV programmes. Normally I see a piece of furniture and imagine what I would do with it, what colours would look nice etc.
If you had a spare room in your house, that you could do absolutely anything with, what would you do with it?
I am really lucky, as I have my ‘spare’ room that I turned into my dream craft room, plus I have also taken over the garage, that is slowly becoming my workshop. I don’t want to be greedy, so I think if I did have another spare room I would make it into a snooker room for my husband.
How dreamy is Evija’s craft room? I adore the gallery wall, it’s so unique! Don’t forget to swing by her blog for lots of craft, DIY and home decor inspiration.
