Take each day.

Things have been very unbalanced between this pair for quite some time, five minutes wouldn’t pass without someone screaming bloody murder, snatching and shrieking, my nerves and patience up and walked weeks back, months if I’m being really honest and I’m sorry to say it wasn’t renewed when a fresh day came. Two minutes into…

Sunshine lift my spirits…

The sunshine is lifting my mood and I’m sat here marvelling at how close we are to such a huge change to the way we live. Not so long ago behind this chair was the boundary of our little indoor home world and now more than just the promise of a room to spread ourselves into, to relax…

Inside/Outside Living.

I wrote a piece for an online magazine, which now won’t be used for one out of my control, nothing to do with them not liking it reason or another, but hey ho, I thought I’d share it with you guys instead. I’m ill and have spent the entire day watching crappy tv and trying to…

Room divisions, zoning a space.

My last post about my ongoing work at the Birth Centre and the children’s space I have been creating there has led me on to thinking more about different fun and exciting ways of zoning rooms. The great thing about writing this blog is the ability to explore ideas, even if I don’t have the space…

A place to play, Penrice Birth Centre.

The rejuvenation project at Penrice is an ongoing thing, done on voluntary time and so it isn’t always possible to just bosh out an idea, crack on and get it done and dusted as quickly as we’d all like, it takes time, discussions, group decisions…and a lot of patience, I’m not very good at this patience thing, you may…

The art of compromise.

The art of compromise is something that doesn’t always come easily to me, I try my best with the girls, life with children is ALL about compromise and negotiation, but generally with my husband I do get my own way, eventually. I have almost total free reign in the house when it comes to design and have made some…

Inspire me, inspire you…

I’ve been looking back through some photos and links I have saved today, reliving some of my previous design crushes, ideas/ blogs that caught my eye, I collect them like my girls collect sea glass and pebbles from the beach. I know I will never really do anything with all these little snippets of beauty, my house isn’t…

Pretty picture, fill your home with happy.

When I think about decorating a room I start with something that I think is special and work back from there, this could be a particular piece of furniture, a light fitting, even just a special cushion. But more often than not it’s a picture, something that captured my imagination and sparked ideas for the…

Facebook 1000 Giveaway.

  Wow, I can’t believe I’ve reached over 1000 likes/ followers on Facebook in such a short amount of time, thank you everyone who shows me some love over there, I really enjoy the opportunity to share and hear people’s opinions, as well have a good old chat. To show you all how much I love you and…

Changing rooms or Shaming rooms?

Some may call this a rant, I prefer to call it a release… Changings rooms? Shaming rooms more like. I do not appreciate being shoehorned into a space so small when I bend over my rear end pops out of the curtain for all to see. I do not appreciate your silly inadequate hooks, incapable of holding the…
