Although I LOVE the summer I am definitely a fan of seasons, particularly the Autumnal months. I’m looking forward to getting snug in my dark moody lounge with plenty of sumptuous, rich textures to keep it cosy and warm.
This month I have collaborated with Wayfair for their Home Expert challenge to show you how to give your home an Autumn update through colour, pattern and texture.
Our loft renovation has started. The roof tiles are off and the steels have been measured and ordered. It won’t be long until we’ll have an extra bedroom, bathroom and dressing room to get decorating and instagramming. Obviously this started me thinking about the types of Velux window coverings available in the market and which ones will be best for us.
I am thrilled to share that I have been nominated for Best Newcomer blog at the Amara interior blog awards 2017. I can’t tell you what a privilege it is to be nominated, and be in a category with bloggers who I admire and do a pretty damn good job at this blogging malark! So, thank you very, very much for whoever voted for me… I’m honored!
July for most people means school holidays, summer BBQ’s and lazy weekends spent in their gardens. For me, July is SALE time! So, what better way to get back into blogging than by telling you about my latest SALE bargain. It’s been about a month since I last post about my fav top pics at Wayfair. Since then I’ve been sunning myself on the Balearic Islands with way too much sun and sangria to write anything half decent. Which leads me onto the topic of this post nicely like some drink obsessed crazy lady.
This month I joined the Wayfair Home Expert team and wrote a post about updating your lounge with a cushion refresh. If you're looking to give your lounge a bit more than a refresh, I wanted to share my top 6 picks from Wayfair. Of course these include three of my favourite materials; Copper, velvet and marble. Each piece is guaranteed to add the wow factor to any lounge area, especially when combined together.
Sometimes all it takes is a little know how, arm grease and a good old DIY store to help pimp your dining table. I was hosting a dinner party when we accidentally scorched the table, leaving it with a lovely white mark, right in the centre. I've googled tutorials on getting white heat marks out yourself with an iron and a damp cloth, but after years of ignoring all the scratches, dents and marks I thought it was time to take action. Spend less than £70 to re vamp, or get a new table. It didnt take long to decide which option to go with...
Treat yourself! Thats my motto, which I'm sure my husband would happily verify. This month I treated myself to a new navy velvet sofa from John Lewis. I've been obsessing over one for a while, and thought it was time to bite the bullet. One of things which always puts me off buying a new large piece of furniture is the hassle of measuring up to ensure it fits. I'm always reminded of the time I bought a dining table on ebay which didn't fit through the kitchen doorway. It turns out I only measured the front door... whoopsie! Since then, I follow the 4 simple rules to ensure every item fits. Here's my guide to measuring up, and ensuring that every big furniture purchase fits!
