Home Office Wishlist

I love having my own little corner of the house to work in. Okay, it’s a bit bigger than a small corner as I have a huge Ikea Alex/ Linnmon desk that takes up a big space and I also have a couple of storage units next to and behind the desk. However, my office is far from perfect and there’s loads more I would do with it if I could like moving the cat’s huge scratching post/ house somewhere else! That aside, I do have a bit of a home office wishlist going on right now! I am a big

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

Decorating The House For Christmas

1st December is a pretty big deal to me. No matter how excited I get about Christmas I always wait it out until 1st December to decorate the house. The past two years we have had to be really careful about what we had and where it went because we had Jackson who loved to eat sparkly reindeer! Having a toddler isn’t much easier to be completely honest. Still, I get really excited about decorating the house for Christmas and even more so now because Erin loves anything shiny and she loves stars. I had sorted out the advent calendars the night

How To Create A Festive Feature Wall & Giveaway

It’s very nearly time to decorate the house ready for Christmas and this year we wanted to do something a bit different. Our large living room/ dining room has a lot of wall space and it’s all painted white at the moment. If we don’t have large decorations the room ends up looking really plain and boring. This year, we have some fantastic festive wall stickers from Stickerscape! Stickerscape have so many options for wall stickers and I had a hard time choosing what I wanted. In the end I chose the Countdown Wall Sticker in large and the Santa and Sleigh

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

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
