How To Make The Most Of A Family Garden

We are very lucky to have quite a large garden, even if it needs a bit of work doing to it. As soon as we moved in we started to clear the overgrown mess we had been left with and after 3 skips worth of rubbish, we ended up with a nice lawn (although now ruined by a dog). We also got new fences a couple of years ago and our neighbour did the same so that was a big job done. When we moved in it was just me and John but now, we need to think more about

Limited space and a growing family – look no further…

Do you have limited space in your home? Are you fed up of stuff cluttering up the house? Are you running out of places to put things? I’ve recently discovered a fabulous bespoke storage company called Bravo London that can take all your worries away. They specialise in making handcrafted storage solutions to fit any space you have.

Small Changes To Your Home That Make A Big Difference

Being a homeowner myself, I know firsthand about getting bored or annoyed with how the house looks. We have a fixer-upper and so often I think about selling up and moving somewhere that needs less work. When you’re feeling like this though there’s no need to make massive decisions and do things you may regret. Julian Charles are running a great campaign at the minute called Renovate, Redecorate, Inspire and you can search it on social media using #RenovateRedecorateInspire Add Some Colour When we moved into our house, the previous owners decided to splash white paint over everything, making the

How to Use Furniture to Enhance Your Interior Design Style

Do you marvel at the glossy pages of interior design magazines and wonder how people seem to have impeccable interior design style and taste?

Take a look at some of these insider tips and enhance your interior design style (and better still, they come in under

Cleaning Up The Garden With FFX

We are very lucky to have a large garden. We have a decent sized patio, a 10ft x 10ft piece of decking and a whole lot of lawn. Our rabbits have a hutch each after trying to kill one another a couple of years ago and they are massive! Not only do the rabbits take up a lot of room but we also need somewhere to keep their food, straw and hay! Just recently we’ve had some help cleaning up with garden from FFX. The first item on my shopping list was somewhere to store everything that the rabbits need

Chairs Vs. Your Back

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

Tips for buying furniture online when you don’t drive!

It’s no secret that I buy and sell things on local Facebook selling groups quite often. I’ve written posts in the past about how to make the most of them and I stick to those bits of advice myself. As someone who doesn’t drive though, I find it really difficult to always buy everything I would like to. There have been so many times where I have seen a really nice piece of furniture that I’ve fallen in love with. Buying furniture online is a nightmare though if you’re someone who can’t drive. We don’t have family close by who

Choosing the perfect bed for a dream bedroom

At the moment, Erin’s bedroom is very neutral. I started decorating way before she was born and also before we knew that she would be a girl. Her walls are a sort of truffle colour and her furniture is white. I went with white because I knew that it would match any theme we choose later down the line. Now that Erin FINALLY sleeps on her own, we are faced with moving her from a cot to a cot bed. This has gotten me thinking about how I would like her room to be when she’s a bit older! When
