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…

And so it begins…

And so it begins, my first dabble into the world of Builders, the start of 6 weeks (I’m a realist, I know I should add at least 2 weeks to that deadline) of mud and noise and dust and more decisions. I’m excited and nervous in equal measure…what if by the end of all this…

She Shed? Garden Room? Heaven.

  She Shed, Garden Room, Small Wooden Box? Call it what you like, but I will call it Heaven. It’s finished, well almost, nothing is ever truly finished in this house but I’m pretty damn close. I was determined to have it done and dusted before the garden becomes a giant muddy hole next week, I knew it…

The anticipation of a dream come true.

It’s raining, the sun has run away, I fear we may have had our quota for the year but I’m ploughing on with jobs in the house instead, there are so many decisions to make before work commences on the extension in a few short weeks and one thing leads to another, to something else and basically it…

Home is where my heart is. Small house, big changes.

  I’ve been feeling a little lacking of late, lacking enthusiasm and inspiration, lacking motivation and excitement. My mind has been rather preoccupied with thoughts that have been stressful and full of possible but realistically false hope. A little while ago we decided we would look into the costs of extending. I am stuck in a love/…

Art by Eloise Renouf

  I received some exciting post from Eloise Renouf at the end of last week but have only just found the time to open it up. It’s pretty fraught here today, with two very unhappy, unfriendly little girls, so this was some much needed beauty on a grey morning. Here are some close ups to…
