AD | Collaborative post When children are first born we can think of their bedrooms as somewhere practical. As a baby, they don’t need much more than a cot and then as a toddler, maybe their first bed. It’s not until our children get that bit older that they want to start spending time in their bedrooms. Take a look at some tips for how to make your child’s bedroom somewhere to relax.
AD | Collaborative post An easy, and quick, way to addd a different feel to a room is with wall art. You can add as many pictures as you want to a wall and create a whole new look, or change up the theme of a room. If you’re looking to do something like this then Desenio offer a huge range of both prints and frames.
AD | Post in collaboration with Posterlounge Working from home can mean a lot of different things for a lot of people at the moment. In a lot of homes it can be hard to find the space to work in peace and quiet, especially with anything else going on around you. I know how lucky I am to have been able to turn our spare bedroom into my own office but it’s been lacking in something. With the help of Posterlounge, I have been able to transform a corner of my office, where my
AD | Collaborative post Storage needs seem to grow exponentially as the family grows up or expands. Managing the house so it’s not in a constant muddle can end up being a full-time job by itself. What’s needed is a few alternative storage solutions. Use the Awkward Spots If you’ve got tricky areas in the house that you just don’t use properly, like under the stair cupboards or narrow alcoves, you can get more out of these areas with shelves. Other odd areas include the blank space at the end of a cabinet run in
AD | Collaborative post When it comes to home decor I think it’s easy to get stuck in a bit of a rut. We can follow design ideas from Pinterest or glassy magazines but a lot of the time they tend to all follow the same trends. I don’t know about you but I’m quite bored of seeing the same kinds of prints on the same grey walls. Something I didn’t know until recently is that you can get amazing tapestries for your wall. I have to admit that I have only really ever thought about putting
AD | Paid collaboration When we bought our house 6 years ago I think we moved in with the idea that we could re-do everything room by room and we could just work our way through things. We only managed to do 2 rooms before Erin was born and we did a fair bit of work on the garden instead. Owning our own home has never really been what we thought it would be and it’s taken us all of this time to really know what we want. Something I have hated about our house
AD | Paid collaboration When you have children their stuff seems to take over the whole house. Somehow, even though Erin doesn’t really go into our bedroom, she has things in there as well. We are really lucky to have a large living room/ dining room that has a bit extra coming off one side in an ‘L’ shape. Over the past few years we have been working on turning this extra space into a play area for Erin so that our living room isn’t completely overtaken! I wanted to share some ideas with you
AD | Paid collaboration Ever since we became parents it has felt like every room in the house has been taken over by Erin’s things. The living room is covered in toys, my library area is now a play area and I’ve lost count of how many toys there are for the bath. Wherever you go it seems like there is something of Erin’s there. Now that she is getting a bit older and understanding something about boundaries and personal space (definitely not all the time), we would like to reclaim our bedroom and have
