Spare Room

Painting / Spare Room / Things We Need

This weekend we attempted to remove some of the madness from the spare room. By which I mean a LOT of empty boxes and things that could find a new home. We even put some things in the loft which is novel, never had one of those before. Ben ventured up there because I was a little apprehensive. I totally fell for his cry of ‘Oh my god is that a COFFIN?’… I don’t know […]

Bathroom / Picture Post / Things We Need

I mentioned a while back that I’d ordered a  Componobili replica from for some bathroom storage. Well it arrived last week and I love it! It fits the awkward space between the sink and the bath perfectly and stores everything we need! The original owners of the house had renovated the bathroom about a year before we bought it so not much really needs doing urgently aside from the massive crack in the tiles on the floor. It’s like […]
