ORC Week 6 | Living Room Shelf Styling

I’m six weeks into the One Room Challenge, doing up the living room in our rented house in London. This week I’m talking about the shelfie situation, and hanging the monster TV over the fireplace. The goal for this room was to make it lighter, brighter, happier and more livable, and it’s on the way. I have a tight budget, and am limited in design choices because it’s a rental property. As a result, it’s not the most dramatic design… View Post

ORC Week 3 | Living Room: Creating More Light & Space

It’s Week Three of the One Room Challenge, where I’m giving the living room in my rented Edwardian house in East Sheen, London, a spruce up. Catch up on the interior design plan for this room in Week One, and progress on the fireplace wall makeover in Week Two. More Painting I’ve done as much painting as needed for now – that is, all the walls have a full three coats, bar the window bay. I’m still in love with… View Post

ORC Week 2 | Living Room: Stripping & Painting

Week One of the One Room Challenge is done, and I’ve made solid progress on the living room makeover in my rented Edwardian home in East Sheen, London. Here’s a refresher on the interior design mood board. I linked all sources in last week’s One Room Challenge post, and showed you the living room floor plan and before pictures. Stripping Wallpaper I wanted to tackle the fireplace wall first, because that was the most intimidating from a DIY perspective. Before,… View Post

ORC Week 1 | Mood Board | Eclectic Living Room

It’s time for another One Room Challenge makeover. This time around, I’m redesigning the living room in our Edwardian home in Southwest London. If you’re not familiar, the ORC is a biannual event where interior “influencers” each transform a room over (usually) six weeks, posting progress deets every week. This time round, we get an extra couple of weeks, because of the Corona situation. So much amazing interior design inspiration comes out of this event, and I’ve loved swooning over… View Post

Do Capsule Wardrobes Actually Work?

Do Capsule Wardrobes Actually Work?

Keeping a thoughtfully curated wardrobe makes it much easier to keep your interior spaces organised and beautiful. I hopped on the capsule wardrobe trend two years ago. It took a few seasons to curate my clothing collection to the point where it might be considered a true capsule wardrobe, and you can check it out further down. But now that I’ve nailed it down, I thought I’d talk about how successful it’s been. What is a Capsule Wardrobe? In case… View Post

Design Inspo | A Neutral Scandinavian Apartment

Design Inspo | A Neutral Scandinavian Apartment

This Scandinavian apartment caught my eye recently. It’s light and bright and calm. I discovered it on a real estate listing from Stockholm, Sweden. Proof that a Chesterfield can work with almost any design style! There’s such a good mix in here. Classic furniture and details like the sofa in the living room or the subway tile in the kitchen, sitting pretty next to modern Scandinavian pieces and a decent dose of Ikea. The three bedrooms are perfectly simple, letting… View Post

My Go-To Source for Affordable Custom Blinds | Mood Board | Boy’s Room

I gave my son’s room a mini update not long ago. I added a mid-century dresser, moved his keyboard in, and switched the furniture around, but it still wasn’t completely finished. Today, I’m sharing my go-to source for affordable custom blinds, and talking about the impact the right window treatments can have in interior design. There were a few niggly issues in this room that needed addressing. The rug was too small, the bedside cabinet had seen better days, and the curtains… View Post
