Hi, I’m Sarah

and welcome to my blog, Dream of Home.

This home interiors blog began back in May 2017 when we were renovating our new (and first) home. I wanted a way to document everything we were doing. It was a tough renovation, as the house required re-wiring, re-plastering, new radiators, new everything basically.

But now things have moved on a lot. We’ve lived in our house for over a year and a half. We’ve got our cat, Lily. We also got married in April 2018.

We’re still trying to finish renovating our house, with the two bedrooms left to do. There’s also lots of little jobs to do on the house. And the big project that we’ll be starting in Summer 2019 is our driveway and garden. We’re basically ripping everything out, raised borders and all, and starting again, so if you have any advice on garden renovations, we’d love to hear it! 

We spent so much money trying to renovate our house, that we didn’t leave much for actually buying furniture and ‘nice things’. Even now, getting a new boiler comes as priority over new decor. This is why I have my budget interiors category, trying to inspire others who can’t afford luxury home items, just like me, but want to make their home the best it can be.

I’ve always been a huge reader, having studied English Literature at university, which is why there’s also a Library section. So if like me you’re a fan of books, that’s the place for you.
