Living Room Progress & News

Living Room Progress & News

Firstly, news: we are moving again – boxes are being packed as I type. This makes five houses in five years. It wasn’t planned, but we’re renters, and sometimes that’s just how it goes. On the plus side, our new place is bigger, cheaper, and much closer to the kids’ school. It’s also a pretty similar layout, so most of the rooms that I was on the verge of finishing here will transfer pretty easily. Anyway, back to this house. The living room definitely had it’s challenges: it’s long (ish)… View Post

Neutral Master Bedroom Reveal

Neutral Master Bedroom Reveal

Welcome to the one room I decorated in our old house. We were only there for ten months, so I wasn’t planning on doing much, but we needed all new bedroom furniture after we sold our rather large American furniture before moving to the UK. The room was a weird shape, because the back wall was angled, and it was small, but it had a lot of natural light and, although I probably wouldn’t have picked the wallpaper myself, I liked it. I’d been after a neutral master bedroom for… View Post

Organizing the Big Boy Room

Organizing the Big Boy Room

When we moved from loft #1 to loft #2, we pretty much transported everything from Sebastian’s bedroom from one place to the other, even down to the paint colour. The new room was a similar size with the same concrete ceilings and pillars, except this one had windows (the first was an enclosed loft room) and hardwood floors. There was one other difference though – I organized the beejesus out of this one. Hurrah. Check out the closet. All the shelving was already there, so I just added bins, baskets… View Post

As Far As I Got With Our Last Loft Living Room

I never finished our old living room off the way I wanted to, but I did rather like the direction it was going in. When we moved in, there was a rather dominant red wall, complete with huge mismatched patches where the landlord had tried to cover damage left over from the previous tenants. Luckily, we got the go-ahead to paint neutral stripes. I was seriously missing the stripes we had in our previous master bedroom, so it was a no-brainer really. It was quite a process (mainly because of… View Post

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery Reveal

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery Reveal

It’s time to play catch up here and show y’all how far I got with our loft before we moved. Here’s is Eleanor’s little nursery… When I say little, I’m talking 8′ x 9′. It took me weeks to figure out how to fit everything in. We originally had a double-wide dresser which made the whole thing a real squeeze. In the end, we sold it and bought a smaller one. You can probably figure it out from the photos, but here’s how we set it up: Two of the… View Post
