We’ve been in our London flat for about 6 weeks now. If you (me) end up moving into a rented place that needs a bit of love, you (I) feel the need to get everything done as soon as humanly possible. It’s a very different feeling to buying a house and swanning about for 6 months before you pick up a paint brush, because you know your time might be limited to your contract. What […]
I’m easing myself v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y back into the world of blogging. I don’t think I can quite talk about our leaking shower (ripping all the tiles off the walls, replacing the walls, putting the tiles back and it NOT being covered by the insurance…anyone?) although I will do I promise. We’ve also painted our bedroom other such delights, but they all seem like big scary posts, so instead I’ll let you know this: We bought […]
I posted ages ago about painting our living room. We did the whole thing in Swansdown (Dulux Trade paint) and one wall, the one with the fireplace, in Dove (also Dulux Trade).

I’m talking for a few hours, mainly […]

Bad practice, but we decided to live on the edge a bit. We wanted to paint the spare room on Saturday and had had no time all week to get any paint testers so we just decided to run with it and […]
Dare I dream that we will have a sofa soon?
It’s been a bit quiet on the home front this week. Mainly because I’ve FINALLY got myself a new iPhone and have therefore dropped everything to play on it 24 hours a day. Who needs a house when you have a new phone. I downloaded this fun 360 degree app which patches together your pictures. This was my first attempt of the living room and dining room (you have to click on it): And here’s […]
Chairs are here! I’m in love with them in a weird and creepy way! Not only do they look amazing, but they are really comfy too! They arrived in two parts, but we just had to screw the legs on to the seat which took no time at all! They feel really sturdy, although I keep telling Ben to sit down on them softly because I’m scared he will hurt them. We went for the […]
