Our bedroom is next up on the home improvement list. When we moved in it got a little bit of a makeover ( a lick of paint and new carpet) but essentially it was still full of odd bits of furniture, including two HUGE Ikea wardrobes that didn't really fit into the space correctly.Read More
I realised recently when I was changing the sheets on our bed that the labels on our pillows and duvet said St. Michael. ST-FLIPPIN'-MICHAEL.
At the very least my duvet and pillows were 16 years old!Read More
If you follow me on social media you'll probably have seen that since the late summer of last year I have been working alongside the 2 Lovely Gays, and interior Design duo from South London. You may recognise Jordan - he was the runner up of the Great Interior Design Challenge first series. After enjoying their aesthetic throughout the series I started following them online and then realised they had bought a Forest Hill property that they were in the process of renovating. Every week I was seeing new discoveries of their Victorian property popping up - a vintage wedding dress, crumbling walls and rolls of wallpaper from the 50s. To some people this might sound like a nightmare - to me it was beautiful, and I wanted to volunteer my time to get involved with helping them renovate.
Fast forward a few months and I've been lucky enough to be privvy to the design and launch of their first bed linen collection with Secret Linen Store. It's been worth keeping secret! Read on to see what we got up to at their secret slumber party launch...Read More
Hey guys! Thing have been really crazy around here lately. That's for another post, but it's all good. Lots of great work coming in, including this awesome interior design project that I recently took on for a lovely new client called... Sarah! No it's not me, it's just another fabulous lady called Sarah (obvz). Anyway, Sarah has just moved into a new rental and asked me to bring some life to the bedroom, which at the moment looks like this. Mmmm, estate agent lens.Read More
A year or so ago, I had a vision of starting an interiors blog and one day being an interior designer. Some people I knew sniffed at this idea... 'another project in a series of creative things she's tried her hand at' they thought (or quite literally said to my face). In just over a year I've won two awards for my blog, launched my first online digital product and now have just completed my first private interior design job. And here it is in all its glory. My first ever project! ARRRGHHH!Read More
I think it's safe to say that we've really been focusing our energy on getting the living room and bathroom up to a decent state recently, so our bedroom, although started had been left a little neglected! I decided to give the room a little spruce up. She's still a LONG way off being done, but new bed linens, cushion and a rug really helped to give her a bit of life. Here's some pics!Read More
