Relax and Recuperate

 Transform Your Home into a Calming Haven

Does your home make you feel happy and relaxed? If not, something needs to change! If you don’t have a place where you can unwind each day, life can quickly catch up with you. Here are some of the ways you can create a calming haven at home.
A relaxing bedroom is crucial for a good night’s sleep. Being surrounded by mess and chaos isn’t good when you’re trying to wind down. Find good storage where you can house your possessions, this makes them easy to access but means they’re not cluttering up the space. Update your bedding, and make an effort to make the bed every day. Psychologists have found that bed makers tend to be happier and more successful in their lives, so it’s a practice worth getting on board with! Painting the room in calming colours can help too. If you’ve gone with bold red, oranges, bright pink or other vivid shades, it’s worth scaling it back. White, light grey, cream or a light pastel shade will be far more soothing.

What is your Number 1 Priority?

Make Home Security Your Number One Priority!
It's hardly going to be much of a shock to say that you probably care about your home quite a lot. I mean, who doesn't?! Your home is your sanctuary from the outside world. It's the place where you spend time with your family, make memories, and should feel safer than just about anywhere else in the world, which is what makes it so utterly horrible when something happens to disrupt that safety.

How To Get Your Garden Summer Ready

Our gardens are one of the most neglected spaces in our home. We don’t often tend to think of them as a space as such - more of a backup for when the summer months hit and we need to get outside to cool ourselves down, bask in the warmth and give the kids somewhere to run around. However, we need to be giving them a bit more attention - it’s only what they deserve.


I thought it was about time that I update you all on what has been happening around here...we have finally arrived at the other end of the tunnel...all the work as been done on the house to make it Freddy friendly and we have also designed the living room to carry it forward for 2017...

Ok so we have argued alot about what we should have, as I still love kitschy chic, but Freddy wanted a more grown up look kinda like what we had here but with a bit more grey added! but we have had to compromise...we agreed that we would keep our favourite ornaments and get rid of the really kitschy ones (I have added a few back though! shhhh don't let him know ;))

Don’t Forget the Kitchen Sink This Spring

The days are getting longer, and the sun is starting to rear its head a bit more often. Spring is on the horizon and moods are starting to lighten. Now is the perfect time to clean up and remodel our homes, and one room that should not be neglected in 2017 is the kitchen. The heart of many homes, the kitchen is the one room where you can guarantee a good time, whether that be eating great food, enjoying a family get together or throwing a party for a special occasion. So, it is important that your kitchen space looks great, feels welcoming and functions well.
