Home & Garden Expo – Inspiration Book

So in a recent post I mentioned that I had gone along to the Home & Garden Expo that is being held this week and was completely overwhelmed by the variety of amazing products. I have a tendancy to get distracted easily and buy things randomly without thinking about what will go together and then they end up lost in the depths of my inventory never to be seen again. Please tell me I’m not the only one!

Anyway, I braved it and went back again and this time I dragged the man along with me, he was enthusiastic at first because at least it wasn’t clothes shopping…until he realised the size of it and he gave a two word response, the first one began with F and the second word was “that!”  but somehow I persuaded him. One of the first spots we visited was Windowshopping by Neva Crystall. I had seen this on my previous visit and loved it. Windowshopping is Neva’s collaboration with a new project called Inspiration Book which is founded by Pitsch Parx and already has several talented, creators, builders and bloggers on their team.

Obviously I subscribed to Inspiration Book immediately because this is perfect for someone like me who has eclectic tastes and can be easily distrac……….ohhhh…….pretty shiny…..er, haha, I know you know what I mean! But it seems as though this is the kind of thing that would give me inspiration and help me focus on creating a certain style, which I’m pretty sure is exactly what it’s meant to do.

Well it clearly works because after seeing the Windowshopping stall the man decided we needed a new house and we grabbed the notecard of Neva’s shopping list that was available and much shopping ensued, the majority of which was at Bazar. Later on I went to bed with an empty lot and woke up to this. I cannot take a single drop of credit for anything in these pictures, it all comes down to the inspiration from Neva’s stall, the brilliant creators and the man’s, previously hidden, decorating skills! I was pretty amazed when I logged on to see it all and I have to give him a ❤ for that.

I am going to list everything in the pictures in a minute (and try not to miss anything) , but I just want to mention the house first. It’s the Torino by Maven Homes which has been modified somewhat. A couple of walls were removed from inside, a step placed where the kitchen is, the texture on the walls in the living area were changed as well as the floors throughout the entire house. This is the great thing about modifiable prefabs, you can customise them to your liking. Admittedly I suck at it but the man is good, which is lucky for me and the bump, because we have plans to extend it once the little one arrives.

Also briefly, I believe that the items seen here from Bazar are not all available seperately but rather come in sets. Everything you see here from Bazar is available in these sets, Memories Kitchen, Memories Dining Room and Roya Living Room. The sets include all the decor and details, for great prices.

If you haven’t seen Windowshopping or grabbed Neva’s shopping list at the Home & Garden Expo yet I definitely recommend it, and while you’re there don’t forget to hit that subscribo for Inspiration Book!
