Our Springtime Garden

If you’ve followed our posts for a while then you’ll have noticed that most of the things we share focus firmly on the inside of our house! It’s safe to say that neither myself nor Simon would class ourselves as garden people. Give us space for a BBQ and somewhere to drink and we’ve always been pretty happy. However, that does seem to have changed with this house (I suspect because it finally feels like we’re going to be somewhere for a while) and for once we have focused on the garden.

Last year we had the patio extended and this year we’ve made some improvements ourselves (and with the help of our family – thank you!). We’re not quite finished yet, but now that spring is here and the garden is starting to feel like an extension of our home we thought it was time to share our springtime garden.

Hallway Reveal

I believe that the first impression you get of a house stays with you. When we moved in our hallway was fine, but nothing special and it didn’t represent us or the rest of our home. If you follow us over on Instagram you’ll have seen a few hallway snaps over the past couple of months as we’ve been tweaking the space. And today, we finally get to share our hallway reveal!

Master Bedroom Makeover

We’ve shared a few reveals of our home, but we’ve never shared our master bedroom. When we moved in (nearly a year ago now!) this was the first room we decorated. The room was very calm, with a grey and white colour scheme (standard) but the wallpaper we chose had a small print and didn’t really add anything to the room. It was sort of on the to-do list but not a huge priority as we could live with it. Plus who wants to re-wallpaper when you’ve literally just done it?!

However, I recently saw a wallpaper that I loved whilst out shopping and suddenly the bedroom rocketed up the to-do list. Isn’t that always the way! Read on for the full reveal of our master bedroom makeover.

Thrift Store Swap - DIY Concrete Pot

As you may have noticed, there’s been a *little* gap in posts. But I have a good reason (excuse)! I’ve recently taken part in my first ever thrift store swap and it’s been a real creative challenge for me.

If you don’t know how this works a group a bloggers from all over the globe purchase two $10 items and then sends them to another blogger for them to repurpose, upcycle and reimagine in their own image.

Click on over to see who I was paired with as part of the Thrift Store Swap, what items I received and what I did with them. There’s also LOTS of inspiration from the other wonderful bloggers that took part.
