Interiors // Getting Cosy at Home

Although we haven’t had any snow here in East Yorkshire, it is rather chilly! I opened the curtains to a white wonderland of frost this morning… and immediately topped up the bird feeder for the poor chilly blue tits who are nesting in our garden! I’m slowly adjusting to life in the country… Either that or I’m getting old! As I type this, H-Bear is strapped to my chest in a sling, snoozing away after a very frosty morning of shopping. We both bundled up and  ...

Review // Cosatto Robot Story Cotbed

A few weeks ago I wrote this post about our first impressions of the Cosatto Robot Story Cotbed. We had been using it as a toddler bed for Busby while her room was finished, and it was a big hit.

I also want it to feel a  ...

Ah wallpaper… When we moved into our new abode, we had to strip the most ghastly wallpaper off the walls in every single room in the house (barring our bedroom); an arduous task that lasted many days, so you’d think I’d be rather sick of the sight of it?! Not quite yet! Did you know that this week (5th – 11th October 2015) is National Wallpaper Week? Hurrah! When I started designing Indy’s nursery I knew I wanted to create a statement wall as I did with  ...

Interiors // The Beginnings of Indy’s Nursery

My In-laws did a sterling job finishing the final lining and painting of the walls in our hallway, stairs and landing while we were away in Sussex a couple of weeks ago. We no longer live in a half-finished house, and I’m so so grateful for their assistance and work during our whole house redecoration! With the bare bones of the house dealt with, I can now concentrate on sorting out the finer details – something I absolutely love to do! Other than a lampshade to go up and some  ...
