Happy (slightly belated) New Year!
2016 was the first full year for six years, that we haven’t moved house. We stayed put the entire year. That, on it’s own, makes me very happy indeed. It meant I was able to invest a lot more time and energy into making our little London abode our own.
I completed two room makeovers, both for the One Room Challenge. The first, our shared kids room, has had the most hits of all the posts I published in 2016. It’s a bright, happy room, and I still love it.
The DIY projects that went into it – the wall decals, the peg board weaponry/space-saving study area, and the upholstered beds – are all still holding up well, despite one of the beds breaking mid-makeover.
This room was actually featured on Wayfair last month, among a host of very talented blogger’s kids room, which was very exciting.
My second One Room Challenge makeover was our master bedroom.
My favourite part – where I’m sitting right now as I type – is my new office area and that desk. I worked from the living room before, in a spot that’s kinda dark and gets really cold in the winter. It’s much brighter and cozier up here, and now I have a pretty view.
The painted nightstands in this room turned out super cute…
…and the eucalyptus wall hanging is still a favourite.
Our living/dining room, while still not finished, got some love, and will definitely be getting some more this year.
I had the opportunity to work with some lovely people through e-Design, and hope to do a lot more of that this year. My most popular of these on the blog was this traditional, Art Deco-inspired living room.
Sheesh, this post ended up being longer than I anticipated! But that’s definitely a good thing, because it means I got a lot done! Thank you so much for sticking around and reading along – I appreciate you all so very much. 🙂
