WE ASKED THE BLOCK COUPLETURNED- HOME­WARE- GU­RUS ALEX & COR­BAN WALLS ABOUT WHAT MAKES A HOUSE A HOME.

New Zealand Weddings - - HOME -

ALEX SAYS: When we got mar­ried I went out and made sure we had two full sets of bed­ding that I loved, so when one was in the wash you have an­other full bed set up that you en­joy just as much. I then was able to throw out all of the ran­dom hand-me- down sheets or bud­get sets I bought for my­self as a young adult. This felt like such an ac­com­plish­ment, and we truly felt we had be­come real adults! COR­BAN SAYS: It seems these days most new­ly­weds al­ready have the ba­sics cov­ered with their es­sen­tial house items al­ready col­lected over the years, ei­ther in­di­vid­u­ally or to­gether. I think when you get mar­ried it’s the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to in­vest in some big ticket, state­ment style pieces to­gether like a spe­cial piece of art­work or a de­signer fur­ni­ture piece that you’ll en­joy for a long time.
