P A I N T 🤷🏻♀️
Current choices are @farrowandball Cornforth White for the living room, @crownpaintsuk Cloud Burst for the bedroom and @duluxuk Chic Shadow for the kitchen..
Any tips on choosing paints Would love to hear your colour recommendations!
So... I went a bit bonkers last night and ordered some Old Man’s Beard seeds -among others 🙄(my 2nd sizeable purchase of the year from @chilternseeds alone 🙈 ) I know, I know some of you will think I’m mad but hear me out...
Despite running rampant over huge swathes of the country it doesn’t grow round here, so I’m giving it a go to see if it will survive here 🤷🏼♀️ I think it is one of the most splendid things in the world.
This glorious @sarahjerath vase is another of my absolute favourites Sarah’s work is perfection👌and the @farrowandball Dead Salmon wall sets it all of quite nicely I think 😊
Good morning everyone and happy Saturday. Here’s a little before and after shot of the back end of our kitchen. I absolutely love our island 🌴 I knew in our next house I had to have one and this doesn’t disappoint, at almost 3 meters long 😹 There is strictly no toot allowed and I’m forever cleaning it but I love it all the same. I wanted our kitchen to be light and airy hence the choice of white. We actually have four windows in here and the bifolds which means it’s filled with natural light all day. You’d have never of thought it from the previous picture. On my next @neptunehomeofficial visit I am planning to buy some of the glass storage containers which make a lovely display with flour, seeds etc.
#PavilionGray, with its subtle blue undertones, adds a contemporary touch to this spacious study. Combined with #LondonClay on the joinery, this simple scheme is perfect for this beautiful space. 📸 by @simshilditch #FarrowandBall
🙌🏻🙌🏻 SATURDAY! Longest week ever and I’m still feeling rubbish! 😴 relaxing weekend coming right up!! Have a good one whatever you’re up to ☺️ .
I always get a lot of questions about these cute shelves! The brackets are from the royal design website and I got the wood from a local joiner 🙃
We are cabinet makers. We design and hand craft beautiful furniture for your home from our workshop in Fermanagh. 💪
Well, I've killed 4 plants this week. New record set!! So they've all been binned and now the kitchen feels very bare. Trying a pop of colour though with some 🌷🌷🌷
I know a lot of you are the same, it feels like one by one they all are going, my one in the lounge is slowly going yellow too 😭
In other news, I got a new camera for Christmas and I was so hoping that it would solve the nightmare that is photographing this kitchen. But no, shooting in to the light seems still too difficult no matter what. Luckily, that wasn't the sole reason for wanting the camera 😂 I think some more playing around with the different settings may be required.
Have a lovely Saturday IG Xx
A tad late but day 8 #myhousethismonth is ‘Look Down’. Normally we say don’t look down. Don’t look down on others. Don’t look down on yourself. Steven Hawking said “Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet”. But, when going down the stairs, especially when carrying a basket load of washing, always, definitely, look down.
This is the original handrail on our stairs and although dark, stained wood isn’t my thang I simply love this rail and it’s scratches and worn patches accumulated over the last 80 odd years. Happy weekend!

[this Post contains three previously gifted items] Happy weekend all. Sun is shining here (though it’s windy), I suggested a zoo day at chessington to Ted but he’s pissed off that the rides aren’t open so has chosen the playground instead 🤷♀️ guess it’s swings and not lions today. Anyone else regret asking their child for input on the days activities! Always end up doing something a bit rubbish when I ask for input...

February 9th | Happy Saturday folks! What have you got planned for today I'm going to visit my parents shortly, then I'll be doing some planning for my sister's hen weekend! She follows me on here so I can't let slip any details! 🙊
Here's another angle of our dressing room for Going Green on #myhousethismonth. We have the same shade of green in our hallway, but it looks so much better with the natural light in this room. 🌿
I am very excited this morning as I am getting ready to head off to East London @schoolofstuff for their open studio. These chairs are coming along with me as they need some major repair work. The furniture school hosts a monthly open studio where you can have access to their expertise and equipment for the day. Not only will I be spending the day learning new skills but I will also get a day off mom life! I really can’t wait! Happy Saturday everyone 😊
Off into town this morning to run a million errands (mostly wedding related). Decided against taking the little one, he’s still not 100% so he’s on total bed rest! Got to make sure he’s all better for his Birthday on Wednesday 🎈
Have a great weekend my lovelies!
Whilst walking through London I see this little cafe. Just love the colour palette they have used for the frontage. It really stands out. Had to take a picture. I'm going to pop I. Today and find out what paint it is!
Farrow and Ball maybe #farrowandball
