Favourite Things Weekly (or not so weekly!)

I haven’t done a Favourite Things Weekly in a while, maybe I should drop the ‘Weekly’ then I need not make any apology! Here are a few things I’m crushing on… Wooden Candlesticks, no explanation needed really, they’re just lovely. Candles add instant atmosphere to a room and these look so tactile and beautiful. I’ve…

Inspirational Interior Design Blogger? Well thank you!

It’s always lovely to receive a compliment and being featured in a roundup of ‘inspirational interior design bloggers’ is rather flattering indeed, thank you very much Dotcom Gift Shop! I’m in good company too with 2 of my friend’s blogs featuring also, Design for Life and I used to shoot blue lizards. And one of…

Quick, easy and beautiful twin slot shelving.

This is one of those blogs I’ve been meaning to write for weeks and weeks, but when I’ve thought about taking photos it hasn’t been the right time of the day, or the girls bedrooms have been a total no go pig sty  (yes, believe it or not we are also human in this house,…

Living room.

Since the extension was built I’ve been having a quiet battle with the living room.  Because the garden room is so light, with a high ceiling, in my mind it has made the sitting room feel squished and a little forgotten. The ceiling, which isn’t that high, feels even lower, the rank artex is too…

Small Business Saturday

​Today is Small Business Saturday and inspired by the lovely Catherine Caton’s Instagram post this morning I would like to share with you some of the small businesses that I follow, have bought from, plan to buy from in the future and some that I have just discovered. We all get caught up in the mass produced cheap…

The long awaited floor…

I’ve had quite a few people ask me about our new floor, having seen snippets of it in my Instagram and Facebook posts, so I thought I’d share some more details and pics here, in the hope that it could help others on their journey to a beautiful floor. So, it’s taken a while, MANY…

Life goes on.

Hello my lovelies, it’s been a bit of a while, again! Since I last did some writing here I’ve turned another year older and I do actually feel a tiny little bit wiser! I’ve decided to try and not sweat the small stuff, each day I need to think about all the wonderful things I have in…

This .com shit ain’t working.

I’ve been doing some soul searching recently, I’ve realised certain things aren’t making me as happy as I would like them to and the balance in my life is very much off. When I started this blog it was because I enjoyed sharing things I had achieved with you lovely people, but somewhere along the…

Dotcom Gift Shop parcel of treats.

It’s always lovely to get a knock on the door and be handed a big parcel of wonderful treats, lately the only things that seem to arrive at our house are wooden floor samples and bills, but today is an exception. The lovely people at Dotcom Gift Shop have sent the girls some wonderful Summer…

Sunshine lift my spirits…

The sunshine is lifting my mood and I’m sat here marvelling at how close we are to such a huge change to the way we live. Not so long ago behind this chair was the boundary of our little indoor home world and now more than just the promise of a room to spread ourselves into, to relax…

Room divisions, zoning a space.

My last post about my ongoing work at the Birth Centre and the children’s space I have been creating there has led me on to thinking more about different fun and exciting ways of zoning rooms. The great thing about writing this blog is the ability to explore ideas, even if I don’t have the space…

Pretty picture, fill your home with happy.

When I think about decorating a room I start with something that I think is special and work back from there, this could be a particular piece of furniture, a light fitting, even just a special cushion. But more often than not it’s a picture, something that captured my imagination and sparked ideas for the…
