What To Think About When Designing Your Child’s Bedroom

AD | Paid collaboration When we bought our house we did so with the idea in mind that Erin would have a fairly big bedroom. I always had a small bedroom and I never felt like I could really spread out and relax in there. I had the box room for a long time and I remember wanting to have options for where my furniture went or I wanted to be able to have friends over without being squished. Now that we have a house with space and Erin has a room with loads of options, I can really think

Refreshing Erin’s Bedroom With Hurn And Hurn

AD | Gifted items Before Erin was born, and definitely before she actually went into her own room, we tried to get it as ready for her as possible. We’d bought furniture like a wardrobe and IKEA storage in advance and we haven’t really done anything else with it for a long time. I think the only thing that has really changed is swapping a cot for a toddler bed and adding some woodland themed bedding. Recently, we were asked by Hurn and Hurn to pick out some items to help spruce up Erin’s room a little bit. Stylish storage

5 Ways To Give Your Child’s Bedroom A Makeover

AD | This is a collaborative post. Erin turned 3 at the beginning of the year. She is still in the same bedroom as she was when she was born and it’s been a long time since we first decorated that room. I tried to keep it very neutral at the time with no gender specific features but at the time we didn’t know Erin or her personality. Now that Erin knows what she likes and she doesn’t I’ve been thinking about giving her bedroom a bit of a makeover to suit her better. Here are some ideas: A statement

Getting My Home Organised For The New Year

AD – We received products for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  The New Year is just around the corner and while I don’t really make resolutions as such, I do like to start the year in a certain way. Just before Christmas I like to have a good clean up and clear out of things we don’t want or need. Right after Christmas I like to get really organised and put things away as soon as possible to make sure life can get back to normal quickly and without any hassle. I think starting the New

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

Easter Weekend DIY

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

Review: Kids’ Prints Tree And Owl Wall Sticker

AD | Gifted item Something John and I have been working on this month is finally getting Erin’s bedroom completely finished. We’re not there yet but furniture has been ordered and a handyman has been booked to do a few bits. The walls not taken up by furniture were looking quite bare though and seeing as the room is already very neutral, I felt like it needed something that stood out. Luckily, Kids’ Prints were there to help us out! Erin’s bedroom has a woodland theme so I had to pick the Abstract Tree with 3 Owls. This wall sticker

The Best Office Furniture

When we bought our house we picked a doer upper.  I had always planned on one part of our living room/ dining room being a library seeing as we have so many books. However, Erin pulls at things now so we’ve had to change this. All of the books are in the loft and I have a bit of an open space to consider. My little space is now going to be turned into my very own office!This means that I have to figure out what furniture to put in there and I’ve spent some time looking for the best office
