Replacing The Garden Fence

Replace fence 09

This summer we replaced our garden fence. Yup, classic late posting from moi I know. We’ve long since packed away our summer garden gear, and this one was of the main tasks we really wanted to get done and dusted before the cold set in. Mostly because we needed the garden to be escape-proof for our ferrets before the dark nights were upon us! But

Office Geometrics & Armadillo Lighting

Geometric Box Files 01

We once had big dreams for a home office. Joe owns about 3 computer towers, 2 screens, and so many other techie bits: boxes of cables, wires, spare cables, spare wires. Video to DVD converter, printer, shredder. I mean, think for a second at all the gorgeous imagery of home offices you’ve likely seen on Pinterest with crisp white walls and Eames inspired eiffel chairs.

Master Bedroom Summer 2015 Update with #Valspar3DChallenge

If you’d have asked me a few years ago what colour I’d paint my bedroom if I could choose any shade at all from the spectrum of the entire colour wheel, I would have picked…black. Yup. Dark as the night, plain old black walls. Not to everyone’s taste, granted. But they say it never goes out of style and goes with everything, so why not?

Building Ferret Mansion: Part 2

Hey everyone! So this is part 2 of how we made a custom-built home for our ferrets. I know this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, so if you’re here for interiors-related stuff, I’ll be back in a few days with a lounge makeover, an update on our master bedroom revamp and some tropical additions to our garden! However if you want to nosey at

The Master Bedroom Makeover – Part 1

after 1

Little over a year ago, Joe decided to shake up the bedrooms in our house. We had a big clear out, and re-arranged the furniture to make the spaces look as large as possible. Our bedroom isn’t humongous, but it’s far from tiny, and we definitely got a lot more room out of shaking things up. But something just didn’t look right anymore. The green

The Kitchen Bar & DIY Wallpapered Shelves

Wallpaper kitchen shelves 04

Whilst I am pretty smitten with our kitchen in general, there is a little area which is so bland I can’t stand it: our shelving units. It’s your bog standard kitchen shelves really, intended for displaying something. ANYTHING. It’s made up of an open shelf bang in the middle of two cupboards with glass doors. The problem is, the only thing we’ve been displaying so far

Building Ferret Mansion: Part 1

Hey everyone! So here is a project which is long overdue on this blog. Last summer, Joe created from scratch a purpose-built home for our pets. It’s absolutely humongous and completely amazes me. We’ve continued to make changes since then but I think now it’s fit for sharing. If you’ve ever thought about building a shed or constructing an outside structure for any reason, I

A Quick Hallway Update

This past month, we’ve made a few additions to our beautifully bright hallway. And isn’t it always the little things that make a room shine? In my last update I showed you the paint we chose (Valspar’s Oopsy Daisy is the yellow colour in case you’re wondering) and our monochrome striped carpet on the stairs. They changed the room drastically, but apart from the decorating

A Living Room Update: Part 3

lounge 02

A few months ago I posted Part 1 and Part 2 of our Living Room Updates. We’d finally covered the horrendous plaster walls with fresh white wallpaper (textured – to cover the imperfections in the plaster), we added coving and re-painted the ceiling. From here this gave us a clean slate to build on, and with only a week or so left until my due

The Kitchen Feature Wall & A Dining Room Makeover

feature wall 02

You may remember that around this time last year I painted one wall in our kitchen Smalt Blue. Here is what it looked like as a little reminder. It’s the wall which overlooks our dining table and it’s the focal point in that space. I still love the colour SO much but it’s about bloody time we added to it. Ever since that day, in
