Interiors // My Dream Office Space

We looked around my dream house last week in our village… It’s a four bedroom Victorian end of terrace, with a huge garden, amazing light and so much space. There was even the most ideal patio for prosecco consumption in the summer. And the doorbell was something out of Downton. Nick came to see it with me on the second viewing, and we both agreed that it’s likely to be a money pit, and unfortunately not viable. It would have been a big project. But oh so amazing once  ...

Interiors // (Finally) finishing our bedroom

Well, it’s only taken two years, but our bedroom is finally finished. Sort of. We went to IKEA a few weekends ago and bought a kingsize bed and mattress.

My up-cycled bureau that I found at the dump for £3 (!!!) isn’t quite right for housing the computer and my work chair is one from our dining room table… Add to that the fact that I’m bunched into possibly the darkest corner of the house, and it’s no wonder that I’m currently writing this post on the laptop in bed! I have big plans to transform our family room in the new year into a light, bright  ...

Hygge // Bed, Glorious Bed

The humble bed is my happy place. Even more so since becoming a parent, as my time spent in it is considerably less than it used to be! I love nothing more than being snuggled up underneath a duvet. Usually with a book in hand. Or Netflix. Plus a cup of tea… Bonus points if it’s raining outside and I can hear the pitter patter of rain against the window. Extra bonus points if it’s fresh bedding. Oh, Bed.
