Grey, white and blush living room

I suppose this post is really the final reveal of the living room refurb, which started way  back in February with the fireplace overhaul. I did do a reveal here, but the room wasn’t fully accessorised and didn’t look ‘complete’. It just goes to show that you need to live in a space for a while before you…

Choosing Kitchen Worktops

I’ve waited years and years for my new kitchen and had so many changes of heart along the way. My tastes have changed from gloss black units, to white units and black worktops, and then finally settling on gloss white units and white worktops.

Dining Room Mood Board

Now that the kitchen is almost finished, we will be decorating the dining room next. This won’t be such a big job as it’s quite a small room and we will be keeping the table and sideboard. Even so, I have yet again turned to Pinterest for inspiration, although I’ve got to say as we…

The answer is to use lots of layers and natural materials where possible. I have this goose feather and down all seasons duvet…

Hallway Inspiration

Hallways (or entryways if you’re from across the pond!) are high traffic zones, but are often neglected as it’s generally not somewhere you spend a lot of time.  If yours is anything like mine, I’m afraid it has become a dumping ground for coats, shoes hats and bags!   But the entrance to your home…

How to survive a D.I.Y. kitchen renovation

As you know, we are in the process of renovating our whole house from top to toe. This started with a single storey extension to the back of the house which was completed earlier in the year, then hubby has been gradually working his way through the downstairs. We now have four completed rooms and…

Accessorising a kitchen, Scandinavian style.

As hubby beavers away fitting the new kitchen cabinets, I’ve been busy looking for accessories. He thinks his work is more important, but IMO I think how  you style your kitchen is just as important!
