When it comes to decorating, no one really wants to do it in the winter. I personally wouldn’t want to do much painting while it’s freezing and wet outside because I wouldn’t want to have the windows in the house open. According to chill.ie, 59% of people said they would change their interior design during the summer! Where winter is dark and dingy, summer is all about fresh, light colours and pops of colour. Here are some tips for sprucing up your interiors this summer: Bring the outdoors in! When I think of summer I think about being in the garden, visiting
Our house is a bit strange. Yep, strange. We bought a fixer upper knowing that loads of work needed to be done. Something we really struggle with is finding places to put things, especially in the bathroom. We actually have a separate bathroom and WC and each room needs storage. We have a double bathroom cabinet in the bathroom already, jam packed with toiletries. There is no more space in there at all. We recently received a gorgeous LED battery cabinet from Lumino and I am so impressed with it. We decided that instead of replacing our large bathroom cabinet would
In fact, this title might even be a tad misleading – it’s not like it’s just your back that can struggle from sitting on a chair for too long! Everyone has chairs throughout their home. There are dining room chairs, kitchen chairs, and of course the living room. Our homes are full of them, but how much thought did you actually put in to what you buy? If you’re anything like the vast majority of people when they purchase furniture, it went something like this: You thought long and hard about what you wanted to buy, then began investigating
I have wanted my own office space for quite some time now. We used to have a small library in the house but as soon as Erin started walking and climbing, we knew it was time to go. So, off went the books into the loft and I sold the bookcases. We had an empty space in our big open plan living room/ dining room and it quickly dawned on me that this could be my office space. Now that I have furniture and a desk, Red Candy have helped me out with some office accessories. My new desk
A couple of months ago we made the decision to get rid of our library. Yes, we had a library in the house. You see, I used to be a book blogger and it was how I started off 7 years ago. This means that I have acquired quite a few books over the years. However, as soon as Erin started walking I decided they all had to go in the loft. The bookcases weren’t attached to the walls and I would have been stupid to leave them there. This whole area is now my office but it’s lacking in personality.
I always knew that I wanted Erin’s bedroom to have a woodland theme. My mum’s surname is Fox so I wanted to incorporate that into the room. I had the idea that Erin’s room would be this magical, woodland dream but it has been quite hard work. While I love her room, there is more that I could do to make it that bit more special. The Irish Fairy Door Company recently helped us out with adding something extra! The starter Fairy Door pack comes really nicely packaged. I can imagine anyone getting this as a gift would be really
This year I’m really trying to make the house a bit more homely. Up until now our living room has been a bit bare with no personality. Just recently we’ve had a bit of help from Melody Maison! I’m in the process of working out my office space in a part of our living room that was once our library. I have just got the bulk of the furniture in there, minus the desk, and I wanted some pieces that looked nice but also helped me to organise everything.

Only recently have we really started to make more personal touches around the house. We have lived here for 3 years now but haven’t really done an awful lot to the house, even though there is loads that needs doing. Since having Erin I have wanted more photos around the house. We were lucky enough to work with Red Candy recently who really helped us out with making our house a home. I was faced with the incredibly difficult task of picking a product from the website and it took me hours! I do mean hours as well. I
