Interiors // 3 Home Decor ‘musts’ that always get overlooked

We’ve lived in East Yorkshire for two and a half years now, and we’re still working on elements of the house. It was very ‘granny chic’ when we first moved it; a lot of wallpaper was stripped, carpets replaced, and dark, light-stealing picture rails removed. I was almost eight months pregnant with H-Bear at the time, and had planned to have a home birth, so I was very keen to get lots finished in time for his birth. Which, consequently, meant that many things were  ...

Interiors // How to shop online for furniture

Shopping for furniture online is not as easy as some of us might think. I am a very tactile person so, as much as I love the ease and convenience of online shopping, I usually like to see and touch what I’m going to buy first.

Home // When you fall in love with a house…

At the beginning of February I fell in love. That’s a lie; actually, I fell in love in October 2016. I fell – hook, line and sinker – for a Victorian end of terrace house in our village. I walk past the house at least three times a week to drop Busby off at preschool, and it lured me in with its beautiful brick work. It’s solid wood front door. And it’s Downton door bell. But it ‘Sold TBC’ pretty swiftly and the dream of living in a Victorian house  ...

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  ...
