Moving House: Top 10 Tips

Moving House Top 10 Tips
Our house chain is now complete, and our moving date is imminent! Finally, nearly 8 months after first listing our house it seems that we’ll be moving at the end of April. I’m not sure about the process in other countries, but in England it seems to be a complete nightmare, especially when there’s a chain involved.

To celebrate (and procrastinate from packing) we wanted to share some of our top tips when it comes to moving house.

Crazy for Concrete

Crazy for Concrete

It really feels like concrete is having a bit of an interior “moment”! Concrete in its natural state seems to be all over the place on interior blogs, Pinterest and online stores.

Retro Pouffe Makeover

Pouffe Makeover

As a couple we’re really bad for putting our feet up on either our coffee table (which is quite delicate) or on our very pale sofa, which has left it looking slightly less attractive than it did when we first purchased it a year ago.

Art Inspiration

I always thought people who had “art” were grown ups with lots of money. Whilst that can be true, I’m starting to realise that just as there are lots of different types of art, there’s also lots of different price points.

Today I want to share some different ideas of where you can look to find art, as well as to share a few pieces from around our home. I’m not claiming to be an expert, but we’ve chosen things that make us smile and we truly love – which I don’t think can be a bad place to start!

There are plenty of Ikea Moppe hacks out there, so I won’t pretend that this post is completely revolutionary – I know it’s not quite the reinvention of the wheel! However I did want to share a small project we’ve worked on recently.
