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
We live in a smallish town in North Norfolk and although we’re only 30 minutes away from Norwich by train, I don’t get into the city much. This means that, as well as a lack of money, I don’t go shopping much at all. Something we do have where I live is quite a lot of charity shops though. I think we have at least 6 or 7 in our market square and they’re great to have a rummage in. I have one favourite thing that I’ve bought locally and it really is a charity
AD – We received this product for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own. This April we will have lived in our house for 5 years. I think I am getting to the point where I finally know what I want to do in certain rooms and areas. Most of that includes a lot of work though like plastering, ripping out bathrooms and kitchens and actually changing the use of some rooms. We can’t afford any of that right now but what we can do is spruce up some rooms with accessories and
AD | Paid collaboration We bought our house 4 years ago now and sometimes it still doesn’t quite feel like home. We haven’t done much work to some of the rooms and the one that feels the least homely is the living room where we actually spend most of our time. We have a 25ft combined living room/ dining room and the amount of white wall space has just been horrible to look at for all of this time. I recently discovered Desenio and very quickly fell in love the range of artwork they sell.
I remember moving into the house that we live in now and it really didn’t feel like it was ours for such a long time. The previous owners had absolutely awful taste and had destroyed what should have been a wonderful house. Rooms were painted in awful colours, white emulsion had been used over things like light switches and kitchen tiles… just to name a few issues. I wanted to really put our (my) own touch on the place as soon as we moved in. Here are some ideas for how to add a personal
AD | Collaborative post When it comes to changing things around the house I like to stick to a budget as much as possible. Spare money isn’t flowing freely around here and actually, home improvements don’t have to cost a fortune. Something in particular I hate is a dark and dingy room so today I’m bringing you some budget friendly ways to brighten up your home. Add some colour It doesn’t take much to add a bit of extra colour to a room. Most of the rooms in my house are white at the moment
Erin turns 2 in a couple of weeks and that means her bedroom has been exactly the same for about 2 and a half years now. I think I was quite clever in the design I chose as we decorated before Erin was even born. Her nursery was painted in a very neutral light brown and paired with a woodland theme. However, now that Erin is older, I wonder if it is maybe time to redecorate with something a bit more suited to her personality. Here are some ideas for updating a 2 year old’s
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.
