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.
Being a homeowner means often having to rely on tradesmen to carry out odd pieces of work. I am useless at DIY and there is no way that I would ever touch electrics or plumbing. Sometimes though, it’s really hard to know when to call out a plumber. I know when we first moved into our house we were always wondering whether it was worth calling someone out or not. 1. Low Water Pressure I think this is something that a lot of people will overlook. Back in our old flat we had terrible pressure in the kitchen sink but nowhere
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. Wooden Letter Rack Organiser with Drawer Storage Right next to our
Our Victorian semi is generally quite spacious. We have a lovely, big living room/ dining room with additional office space and 4 lovely sized bedrooms. The one room that is not at all like this though is our galley kitchen. We have very limited cupboard and counter space so every inch counts. I’ve recently been trying to declutter in an attempt to make the kitchen work better for us and Joseph Joseph helped us out! The pictures you see below are how my sink area used to look. I didn’t think it would be fair to review something that I
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 kept
With John being home over the Easter weekend I thought it would be a really good time to try to get a couple of things done around the house. Easter weekends seems to be a time when a lot of households dust of their paintbrushes and tools and get to work. Our living room/ dining room is pretty big and it goes off into an ‘L’ shape at the back. This used to be our library but with Erin pulling and climbing everything, the bookcases had to go. That small space has been an awful orange colour since we moved
Winter is slowly on its way out and with the first day of spring quickly approaching (20th March) there’s only one thing to do; spring clean! I think in winter I tend to get a bit lazy as the cold weather makes me less inclined to clean. I’d much rather be wrapped up on the couch with my girl, a film and a blanket. Sometimes we need a bit of a a kick up the bum to get going. I’m working with Bed Guru to share my tips for spring cleaning and de-cluttering. Be sure to check the end of
