As you all know, I absolutely love my dressing room within our family home. It’s my sanctuary and somewhere for me to keep ALL my many things. Some of the time the ironing board is up in there, or it’s got piles of clothes waiting to be put away, or the twins are both in there having their hair blow-dried after their bath — but…

When we bought our new-build family home three years ago I thought that styling it would be the EASIEST thing in the world, ever. A blank canvas. A new, fresh start. No lumpy, bumpy, wallpapered walls. Perfect, clean lines and the ability to put our own stamp on it. Oh how wrong I was.

So it was officially deemed as the first day of spring on Tuesday this week, and OH MY does it feel good to be able to say that out loud.

When we first moved into our new-build family home over 2 years ago (from a country-style cottage) we brought with us a traditional farmhouse table and chairs that my parents had given to us. It thus didn’t work in our modern, shiny, new grey kitchen and we absolutely…

When we were viewing new-build family homes a couple of years ago this particular house style really appealed to me mainly because of the stunning hallway. It is large, spacious and light and has a lovely sweeping staircase. I looked at Hubby when we walked in, grinning wildly…we literally had to have this house! The entrance hall in our previous home had been a really small…

It’s been a little while since I did an interiors post here on my blog. In fact, I used to do them several times a month when we first moved into our new-build home just over two years ago. Back then, our brand new family home was a completely blank canvas (literally) in which not much of our furniture went with! (we moved here from…

As a trend for 2017, gold is still proving extremely popular and increasing in demand. It was identified as a key trend this year and the metal is already in many people’s homes. Such as mirrors, side tables, ornaments and photo frames. Gold – in the kitchen – is also proving to be a really popular trend and very HOT right now. Think taps, handles…
