One second hand traditional fire in the diner and a contemporary inset fire with a narrow chimney breast in the front room. It was hard to know what to do with no chimney breasts and, alcoves which I’m used to, i have no idea what these will look like in a finished room yet...

Hope everyone has had a lovely Tuesday! I've positioned our coffee table on top of a fluffy pink blanket to try to convince Alex we need to buy a rug for the living room 😂🙈🤷♀️ Just going to leave this here for a few days so that when the weekend comes he will have warmed to the idea a little 🙊
I have been getting lots of messages with questions about our living room so if you check my stories I have tried to show where most pieces are from and done a little room tour for you all. Hope you like it!
We've reused our fire to give it a different look all together.
We ripped out the old surround so that we could lift the fire up and have it in an inset style as part of the wall
We discovered that the company who fitter the fire had removed the end soldier bricks out of the original chimney breast without putting in sufficient support. They hold the chimney stack up so we are lucky it hadnt failed and crumbled on us!
Finished product is lush though! It gives off loads of heat as well! We end up having to strip off which is a TREAT for the neighbours!

Showing another little snapshot of our living room tonight ❤️ Still lots of finishing touches to make 🙈 Our ceiling light kindly gifted from @iconic_lights arrived today and we are thrilled with it! This was created by @grillodesigns and it is amazing 😍
I have already had lots of messages about our electric inset fire so I will put a swipe up link in my stories to it. This is the best price we could find for an inset fire as we were on a very tight budget and we are so happy with it!
Media wall for tv and Gazco radiance inset electric fire completed this week. Timber stud wall constructed and openings made for tv, sky box and radiance inset fire. And full chimney breast boarded and skimmed with new G - tec coving fitted. #ldplastering #chimneybreast #insetfire #studwall #tv #mediawall
This is all so exciting but only the first step... the fire will go at the bottom the TV at the top.... the fire isn’t that big but the builder said it’s the size that it should be. The fire arrives tomorrow so we shall see! Only then need electrics, plastered, skirting, doors, architrave, decorated, flooring and furniture 😂 hey ho I have a vision and it will get there!!🙏🏼 #reptonreno #renovation #wreckonrepton #insetfire #livingroom
No alcohol has been consumed in this house for 6 whole weeks!! 😱
Today that ends.....
Good intentions of losing weight, saving money and not drinking until December. Not lost any weight and saved zero!! 🖕🏼
We are having our home photographed for a magazine tomorrow and it’s only now (with all signs of builders gone) that I can look back at the last 15 months. What a journey! One of the things I was looking forward to the most was lighting our fire. I was a little anxious that it might not be able to heat such a large space as its completely open plan, but I needn’t have worried, this fire kicks out some serious heat!! When it came to heating our home, we saw the fire as an investment as when it’s lit, we don’t need to have the radiators on. This is the Morso S101 😍

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.
Made a start on the cloakroom renovations today and realised I actually quite enjoy painting!
Backs breaking 😩
But the garden is all but finished, finally!
Dug over, topsoiled and reseeded.
Praying to the grass gods for a luscious green garden by next spring.
Catching up on X Factor while Sunday lunch is cooking 👍🏼
