Making Your Home Space Work For You

We are in the middle of our building works – I would have hoped to have a little more to update you on but we’ve had a few delays, which I won’t get into here -but now things are getting back on track, my mind is turning to the decoration. We’ve decided to extend the kitchen in the hopes to create a much more family friendly space that we can all use and enjoy. Previously, whenever I’ve been cooking, the {Read More}

Using Bedspreads to Make a Cosy Bedroom this Winter

With winter coming and the mornings turning rather chilly, my thoughts always turn to making the bedroom more cosy. One quick, simple and cheap way to cosy up your bedroom is looking at your bedspread. I love quilted bedspreads personally. For me, the quilted style adds warmth and extra layers with the weight needed to feel super snuggly in bed. The quilted bedspreads are great because they offer an even distribution of filling over the entire bed. As well as {Read More}

How to Create a Glamorous Bathroom

Bathrooms can be pretty uninspiring at times. The plain and minimalist look with clean lines and no clutter in sight sounds like a dream but can be hard to maintain (especially if you like your cosmetics!) and just lack a little lustre, which is why I’ve started looking at ways I can glam up my bathroom without costing the earth. Bathrooms can be expensive to redecorate (it’s the second most expensive room aside from the kitchen!), especially if you are {Read More}

Updating your kids bedroom with a mural

Wallpaper has been used in houses for centuries and it’s now trendier than ever to decorate your home with the inspiring prints, colours and textures available. But it’s not just wallpaper, if you’re looking for a statement piece, or something to simply brighten up one wall, you could always opt for a wall mural, wall art or even wall stickers; the choice really is almost endless. Thinking of a mural? We’ve used a wall mural in Isabella’s room to add {Read More}

Freshening up the Living Room

Having been in our home for just over 2 years now, I’ve started to freshen up the rooms starting with the children’s bedrooms. Next on my list is the living room. Our living room is quite long and so while the children are still quite young we’ve almost split the room into two; a living room and a playroom. This means that we’ve decided to hold off on completely redecorating until we move all the toys out in a few {Read More}

New Kitchen Ideas

I have a long list of rooms in the house that I’d love to tackle and having lived in the house for a little over two years now, I’m getting more and more itchy to get them sorted. Top of my list though would have to be the kitchen. Here are some of my new kitchen ideas . While it’s a functioning kitchen, in my eyes, the layout was never properly considered so as well as not looking aesthetically pleasing, {Read More}

CanvasChamp : review

Updating photo frames and pictures around the house can not only be time consuming but can also end up costing a small fortune. There are so many ways now to display your images from photo frames, canvas prints, acrylic, wooden blocks, the choice seems endless. However, we tend to always go back to canvas. So when CanvasChamp got in contact, I jumped at the chance to review one of their canvas prints. I knew immediately which photo I was going {Read More}

B-Sensible 2 in 1 Fitted Sheets

If you have children, you will completely understand the rigmarole of having to change your child’s bedding in the middle of the night if they’ve been ill or had an accident. The actual changing of the sheets isn’t too bad in itself but if the mess has seeped through onto the mattress or pillows, it can be a real pain. Recently my two were both ill in the night. Poor Benjamin was sick about 6 times during the night and {Read More}

Switch Art – Magnetic Frames and Prints

I love my photos but I also love changing them as the children grow. I can’t remember how many ‘favourite pictures’ I have had over the past three years, but it’s more than I’ve got room for, that’s for sure. When I can across Switch Art, I was really intrigued. I loved the idea but wondered how good the prints would actually be. I have to say, they are amazing. They quality is brilliant (even off an iPhone image) and {Read More}
