4 Ways To Revamp Your Living Room This New Year

After taking down the Christmas decorations I always feel like our living room is too bare and a bit lacking in, well, something. I’m never really sure what but it doesn’t feel right just after Christmas. I always feel like I need to add something a bit more at this time of year so I thought I’d put together a little list of ways to revamp your living room this New Year! Pictures If you’re anything like me you will have taken hundreds of photos last year. Actually, I probably took thousands but most of them end up staying in

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

Ikea Alex/ Linnmon Desk Review

When it came to organising some space for me to work at home the biggest thing I had to think about was the desk. I already had some great storage but no where to actually sit down and work. I needed something that would fit in a bit of a strange space, but also suit any kind of decor as we haven’t decorated in this room yet. Ikea was not my number one choice to be completely honest. I wanted something a bit less modern but after having a good look around, I finally settled on the Alex/ Limmon Table in

Storage Solutions For A Home Office

John and I are lucky in that we have a decent sized house and quite a bit of space. We have a really big open plan living room/ dining room which is L shaped, meaning I am able to have a home office in that area. My home office is absolutely perfect for what I need for blogging. However, what a lot of people don’t really know is that I spent a lot of time selling items online. For this, I have a sort of second office. We have a 4 bedroom semi detached house and we only really use

Stylish Bathroom Storage From Joseph Joseph

This year I have been on a bit of a mission to get the house more in order. Erin has sort of taken over everywhere but I’m sick of there being ‘stuff’ everywhere. Not too long ago we had some help from Joseph Joseph to make the most of our small kitchen. The next room to tackle on my list was the bathroom. We’ve recently got a new bathroom cabinet which has meant us moving all of the medicines into the downstairs toilet but that wasn’t enough. Luckily, Joseph Joseph have just launched a brand new bathroom range and we’ve

Inspiration For Summer Interiors

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

Illuminate your bathroom with Lumino!

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

Red Candy Office Accessories

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
