All White Walls

As soon as we decided to completely renovate the whole house, I knew that I wanted to paint all of the walls white. Friends and family all questioned this decision, it will look cold, it’s not very homely, it will be dirty in no time, were their comments. I think it came about because I…

Living Room and Office Update

It’s been two weeks since the last room update and if you don’t look closely, you may think nothing has changed, especially in the lounge!

Renovation Update

It’s been ten days since I last posted an update and this is where we were then: The floor was laid and waiting to be oiled, no skirting boards and waiting for dividing wall to be plastered. Well, we’re still waiting for the wall to be plastered; the plasterer assures us he’s coming tomorrow! We…

Friday Favourites – rectangular white coffee tables

I don’t know about you, but before I commit to buying a piece of furniture I like to look at all of the options. At the minute I’m on the look out for a coffee table for my new home office (see blog post here). I will be having two armchairs (hopefully pink, if hubby agrees!),…

Cushions, cushions and more cushions!

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE cushions! So much so, that recently my son counted the cushions in the living room and (wait for it), there were 19!!  I have since whittled it down to 11!  Cushions are so versatile – not only are they comfortable, but they can also add a pop of…
