Our kitchen is white! Ok, I’ll admit – It’s not much of a revamp, apart from the colour. Everything else is pretty much the same, and a work in progress, as we’re going to change some of the furniture and flooring too…Continue reading “Changing my kitchen cabinets from ‘oak’ to white – Was it worth it?”
I’ve been having a lot of fun lately re-creating my own versions of expensive high end pieces. I will be posting them over the coming weeks. Let’s start with this flower cloud chandelier I found on Anthropologie.com, a beautiful statement piece that I thought would be a great addition to my daughter’s bedroom. It’s such a dreamy look. I just had to create my own.
I recently came up with this side table design after one of my IKEA JÄLL laundry bags broke (the bag itself/fabric, not the legs).
If you follow me on social media You will know that for the past few months my family and I have been living with an unwanted sofa. I know this sounds very ungrateful, seeing as that sofa was brand new, comfortable and perfectly functional.

My husband and I’s bedroom is the one room in the house I haven’t shared much, for many reasons. Firstly, this is our little sanctuary, “where the magic happens”. For a long time I felt quite protective of it. I wanted this room in our home to remain unseen, or at least as little visible as possible.
Whether you’ve recently bought a house or are in the process of renovating, it’s likely that you’ll have scrap materials lying around somewhere – wood, cardboard, tiles, flooring samples… all of those things can make for great DIY supplies when you’re feeling a little creative. This was the case for me recently. I had a few flooring samples I didn’t know what to utilise for, but at the same time I just knew I didn’t want to get rid of them.

My little garden set has finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier with it. This 2-chair set from Ebay is part of the growing trend of bistro style rattan furniture that I keep seeing everywhere. The chairs are a little straighter than the ones I’m seeing everywhere with a more rounded shape. But this is exactly what I was after, and I think it suits our tiny little garden perfectly and complements our little decking area quite well.
The last few months have been a total whirlwind filled with surprises, blessings but also new challenges. Not too long ago, we moved house again (!) and settled into a lovely new built property not too far from where we used to live. Things happened quite fast but if you know me well, you’ll know I’m always up for this type of challenge. We prayed for things to go smoothly, and I’m grateful they did. Not just the transition into the new house, but also the decorating process. Continue reading “7 Lessons learned while making our new house a home”

Before I go any further, let me just say I’m actually really embarrassed to show you the “before” photo.
