PAINTED CEILINGS WAS ONE OF THE INTERIOR TRENDS THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOREVER BUT REALLY TOOK OFF IN 2019.
I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU THR REASONS TO PAINT YOUR CEILING WITH COLOUR.
Painting my ceiling completely transformed my living room. It was a way for me to add drama and colour to the room without being overpowering.
WHATS THE BEST WAY TO KICK THOSE JANUARY BLUES IN THE THE BUTT…. WITH A DINING ROOM REVAMP OF COURSE!
Its that time of year, Christmas feels like a distant memory. It’s dark, cold and rainy so to brighten the mood I’m going in for a full dining room revamp.
THERE ARE LARGE ONES,THERE ARE SKINNY ONES, THERE ARE SHORT ONES, THERE ARE LONG ONES…. WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT? HALLWAYS OF COURSE.
The last hallway update was late 2018,when my love for Farrow & Ball Hague Blue was at its peak. Admittedly I still have big love for Hague Blue but I do become bored very easily. Instagram and Pinterest can often make you feel like a child in a sweet shop. I’ll have one of those and one of those and before you know it you’re decorating the same space multiple times a year.
I started to question myself, if you love Hague Blue then why change it? Why not find ways to update the space without decorating.
When the online print store Posterlounge contacted me about a collaboration I saw this as a perfect opportunity to use prints as a way to update this space, more on that a bit later.
Recently I embarked on another room revamp, the master bedroom to be exact. I am a huge wallpaper lover but I am also a decorating addict.
If you are like me you will naturally turn to paint for your room revamp, before you pick up that paint brush let me tell you about removable wallpaper.
Gallery walls…. we all want one but we also don’t know where to start. I don’t know about you but once I think about how much time it takes to collect prints, the cost this entails and then the actual gallery wall layout your left feeling rather overwhelmed.
I’m going to talk you through how I created my first gallery wall on our stairwell. This will be in two bite size blog post chunks to give you my hints and tips on creating a fun, eye-catching gallery wall that won’t break the bank.
For those who have followed me for a while would know I love to play with colour. The living room has needed a refresh for a while now. My style is very eclectic and I love to clash colours with pattern but the problem I faced was how was I going to introduce colour when I had so much colourful furniture.
At the end of October I shared with you my Room revamp ideas for the box Bedroom which is my sons room. Chester is a 9 year old boy who has Autism with sensory and sleep issues so this room had to deliver in so many aspects. It’s not a room that particularly filled me with joy.
Let’s dive in…. or should I say squeeze as it is the box room after all.
Working with What You’ve Got.
When we moved into our home this room already had fitted wardrobes, I’m not going to lie these aren’t the most attractive thing in the room but my gosh they are handy. They store away so many toys and items we wanted to clear out of the room to keep it a calm and a comfortable space for Chester. Keeping this room clutter free was high up on the list mainly because of the lack of space.
Chester was very much a part of the process in choosing the colours and design of his room. He has high anxiety so change can be a real problem, taking that into consideration we let him be part of the revamp to keep his anxiety to a minimum. Read more
The change of season is a perfect time to switch things up in the home. Everyone wants to snuggle up and get cosy in winter which i suppose i should be using the word i cant actually pronounce “HYGGE” I know right who even am i, I claim to have a interior Insta account and cant even pronounce Hygge.
Changing things up with the seasons doesn’t mean you cant be true to Read more
The past couple of months I mentally signed myself up to three room revamps, one being the dining room and the other two being my children’s bedrooms. There is something about knowing that Christmas is looming round the corner to get you all in an interior fluster!
This room has filled me with doom to say the least, there is so many aspects of this room that puts me in a paddy. Chester is nine with autism so creating a calm space that is not over stimulating is a must, the room also needs to be welcoming and comfortable oh and the last factor it needs to give the illusion of space because oh yes this is the box room of doom. It’s always the way, last one in gets the box room.
The wallpaper was what took me the longest time to find, I wanted it to be something that was engaging but not overstimulate. Finding this Wild Hearts Wonder wallpaper was like a breath of fresh air, it ticks all the boxes plus isn’t restrictive to an age. Read more
