With so many homeowners choosing to add space to their homes rather than move, loft conversions are everywhere!
Today is International Women’s Day. I’m not an activist, but I consider myself lucky that growing up as a girl and being a woman has never held me back. In many ways its been a huge advantage. I was moved school from a girls only one to an almost exclusively boys school at the age of 7 – from an early age this taught me there is nothing that girls can’t do as well as boys. This has ALWAYS been a no brainer to me.
We worked on a lovely project at the end of last year and I thought I’d share a couple of photos with you.
One of the rooms that has really has got me in a tizz in our new home is the master bedroom.
We’ve got a very (some might say excessively) large master bedroom in our new house. Its wonderful to have so much space, but with 3 windows (all different sizes and at different heights) and it being much more rectangular in shape than square – to make it a beautiful, practical will definitely be a challenge.

We were delighted last week to be featured in one of the Idea Books put together by Houzz – a lovely surprise for the New Year. If you’d like to see our beautiful mix match cushions and bespoke lampshade that were made for a wonderful client last year.
Wowsa! So, where do I start? From the beginning is usually good, but in this instance I think New Years Greetings are in order, wishing you all the very best for 2017.
When I first started my blog some of the most popular posts I did were hacks to make your home instantly better – minimal effort, maximum inpact! Ace.
So as we prepare for the madness of our move, I’m still trying to sort out ways to make the new house look great and look great quickly! It is after all less than 2 weeks until Christmas!
So I’ve been toying with picture ledges for the children’s rooms for ages – cheap and cheerful from IKEA and the prefect size to keep all their books on. Easily accessible and a great way to fill walls and stop the avalanche of books, which seems to happen ever single night during bedtime stories.
But as I looked more closely into the whole book storage options, I decided we were missing a bit of trick here. We’ve got soooooo many photos and pictures and keepsakes in frames and I struggle sometimes to curate them into something that doesn’t look entirely random, but I think this time picture ledges are the answer. Here are some fab examples of how they’ve been used:
I’ve got some arriving on Wednesday, so I’ll let you know how it goes, but I’m pretty hopeful they are going to be a winner for displaying all our lovely belongings without a vast cost or permanent alternative, so perfect for now.
In the meantime I will be quite busy moving our entire lives across the country, but I’ll be back as soon I can be!
Thanks for popping by,
In a bid not to spend the next few months purely posting up photos of my house, I thought I might share some of the images that have inspired me, while trying to style and design our new home; balanced against the fact that given we’re only tenants I can’t quite justify a total overhaul!
Right, it’s November, it’s cold, it’s dark, there’s only one thing for it; food. Lots of it. So this post is about the best kind of food-party food. YES. I’m not talking 4 flavour dips and tortilla chips (I consider that more of a snack than a party food) I’m talking actual grown up, soirée-standard nibbles.
