Happy Friday everyone! Our exciting weekend is going to consist of painting the woodwork in our newly painted grey hallway. Is anybody surprised we went with grey?! We’ve gone for a light grey on the walls, as the hallway is quite narrow and dark, but we’re going to paint some of the woodwork a dark grey. All will be revealed in time, but until then check out some of the grey hallway inspiration that helping us stay motivated.
This year we’ve got into the Great British Bake off (GBBO for the die hard fans out there) in a BIG way. Admittedly neither myself or Simon are great bakers, so it’s unlikely you’ll be seeing us on there soon. However we do have a great recipe for chocolate chip cookies that we’re sharing today.
Happy bank holiday Monday to my UK readers! With a new layout and a new post we’ve certainly been productive over this long weekend! Read on to find more about how to recover an ottoman and do let us know what you think of our new look.
As I type this I’m sitting in my office, which due to a lack of funds and months of DIY splurging, isn’t quite the haven I’d like it to be yet. Still, that’s reality for you! Until I win the lottery I think my mind will race ahead with various interior plans – even if my purse can’t quite make them a reality yet! On a positive note all the moving boxes in the office are gone. A HUGE improvement from where we were a couple of weeks ago.
Although my plans for my office are still just that, plans, I haven’t stopped trawling the internet for some interiors inspiration! I’m currently leaning towards a feminine office – monochrome colours with hints of blush to soften things slightly. As usual, I’m struggling with the vision I have in my head and what’s actually out there for me to buy. Seriously, if anybody knows where I can buy some Dalmatian print curtains please let me know!
Dalmatian curtains aside, I have collated a few items and images that I think will really help create a feminine office.
A few of these I have already purchased – the amazing feather light is hanging over my head as we speak (absolute steal for any UK visitors £28 and available from B&Q
), and the New York print I’ve already shared previously (check it out HERE
). Others are just inspiration but I’d love to see any recommendations you have – any ideas you’d like to share?
If you’ve been following us on Instagram (and if you haven’t we’d love it if you did here
!) then you might have noticed a few sneaky pictures of our navy living room. We started working on it 3 weeks after we moved in, and now, 4 weeks later I think we’re pretty much there.
It’s not all about pretty images though, so to protect your eyes, I’ve hidden the before shots after the jump…
