5 Things to Consider When Planning a Child’s Bedroom

Having given both of our children’s bedrooms makeovers over the past year, there’s a few key points which have struck me, things that I knew we needed to get right. It’s well worth taking a little time to plan your child’s room redesign and taking into account a few key …

My Next Home…

Ah, to dream. We are happy in our home, but it’s always fun to daydream, right? I mean, if I could have anything, I’d want something like this…. But seeing as that’s a National Trust property (Baddesley Clinton), I’m thinking it might be a bit out of my grasp! So …

Creating a Snuggly Living Room

During the summertime, I love having the doors ajar, tempting us out into the garden, the windows all open letting the fresh air breeze through, bringing in fresh flowers every few days from our cut-flower patch, and keeping the curtains open until late into the evening. The longer, warmer days make me …

A Bedroom Fit For A 5 year Old Girl

As I mentioned last week, we have given Boo’s bedroom a full makeover. I shared a couple of pictures over on Instagram, and as people were telling me they liked it, I thought I’d share a bit more here for you, along with the details of where we got everything from (mainly …

Becoming an Allergenius

Last week we were invited along to find out more about common household allergies, with ao.com and Hotpoint. As a family, we do have our fair share of allergies, so I was keen to find out more. The Husband has hayfever with grass pollen, whilst I have it earlier in the year …

Magic Blackout Blinds & More

I cannot be the only parent who has used towels and sheets to try and black out the light in a caravan? Surely?! If we stay in a caravan, the beds are invariably right underneath the window meaning that I know my kids will be up at the crack of …

Think About The Family-Friendly Floor

Flooring isn’t something that I gave a whole lot of thought to when we first bought our house. There were carpets I didn’t like, so we replaced them quite soon after we moved in, and that’s about as much as I thought about it. Oh, how things have changed! Now, …

Kid’s Concept: An Introduction & Give-Away

Swedish baby and children’s brand Kid’s Concept is now available in the UK, and so today I’m sharing some of my top picks from their beautiful range and giving one of my readers a chance to win a gift voucher to spend with them, too. Here’s a little more about …

5 Steps for a One-Day Bathroom Makeover on a Budget

Having recently given our kitchen a makeover, I was itching to do so with our bathroom, too. We had a new bathroom put in a few years ago, and when we chose it, we deliberately selected neutral colours so that when the time came to freshen it up, we could do …

My Kitchen Makeover

We extended our home and had an open plan kitchen diner put in several years ago. Whilst I still love the bright, light room and sense of space I get in there, the decor was looking tired, the paint needed re-doing and I was getting bored of having the same look. …

My Dream Home Office

It’s a Wednesday, and so my thoughts turn to #BringBackPaper and all things papery that I am loving right now. OK, so my thoughts are often papery, not just on Wednesdays, but you know what I mean! Today I’m feeling the need to indulge in a little daydreaming, so I do …

10 Interior Design Tips For Your Home

We all want our homes to be a sanctuary, a place to relax and entertain. More and more, we’re staying in to watch films, socialise and spend time together as a family, so it’s a place that serves many functions, as well as being a space for us to show our creative flair …

Daydreaming About More Storage…

We live in an average-sized three bedroom semi-detached house. When we moved in it was just the Husband and I and as we’d moved from a 2 bedroom flat, it felt spacious! We had our bedroom, then a spare double guest bedroom, then a room that was essentially our dressing …

Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase Review

When I was offered the chance to review a Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase, I literally jumped at it. We are readers here, and encouraging my children to read and get enjoyment from books is hugely important to me. I’d seen Tidy Books kids book storage before, and thought the products looked …

Memory Foam Mattress Topper Review

This was one well-timed review! The Husband had recently mentioned that he felt our mattress topper needed replacing, and I had started doing my mattress research, but it was one of those things I’d yet to bump up the priority list and actually sort out, and then along came this… …

Pied a Terre Reed Diffusers – Review & Giveaway

We gave our living room a makeover last month, and alongside the new wallpaper and decor, I wanted to add a little relaxing ambience. Our living room is a child-free, toy-free zone of an evening. It’s our place to unwind and relax, whether that’s with a film, snuggling up with a …
