When I'm looking for some motivation.. This is where I come...and boy is it needed today. Its arctic out there..😉 Don't forget... This week on #mystylishspace its all about the Spring Vibes.... And we have the lovely lily from @layered.home joining us with the most gorgeous set of Giclee Prints. Check out a few posts back 👉... And don't forget to make sure you are following everyone.
@_charlottesweeting_@little_house_in_yorkshire@cheshire_interior_design and me! Winner will be picked Sunday so get showing us your Spring Vibes!
Tonight was my first ever pilates class (and first time ever doing it) so I am more than ready to climb in here (I won’t lie to your guys, I’m in there right now).
I feel like I was pretty shocking at it as my coordination is awful, as is my posture. Also found out that my spine is curved which is cool... gonna have that sexy Richard III/Quasimodo vibe going on. That’s in, right? Back humps for spring?
Random stuff I removed before taking this photo: a hula hoop, components to service the thermostatic valve in our shower, tv remotes, a sock and of course a lone cheerio... But the sunshine was so lovely and so welcome I couldn't help but take a quick shot for #myhouseandhome's prompt today which is 'mantlepiece'. What do you think about people posting 'perfect' shots of their homes online? Do you like it / find it inspirational / or does it get you down / make you feel rubbish? I'd like to think I give a bit of reality in the captions but I'd genuinely love to know how you feel about it... either my account specifically (I won't be offended) or more generally about interiors online. Thank you!
A beaut example of how cool your couch can look when you mix instead of match. We’ve managed to combine circles, squares, oblongs, gold, linen, pattern and leather...and it works right ?! This house goes to auction today so I think I’ll sneak this combo back into my own house next week ; )
Staying in a hotel room the first night is kinda okay, room service, time out from the monsters, reading in peace and last night a lovely chinwag with my mate @artynads. A cup of tea with @diedododa
But I never sleep well (last night I tossed and turned, gave up did some work, spent time on here and didn’t get to sleep until 2) so I’m knackered the next day and the second night I wanna be home in my own bed.
Commuting to Scotland each week is tiring
A bit earlier than my usual time, as I have a ridiculous work schedule today.
There is not one but two fabulous Home tours on the blog both belonging to @susana_ordovas; her Madrid apartment and her Home in Mexico.
Colourful, packed with history and vintage finds, both are beautifully pulled together and definitely have the wow factor. Link in bio
Is it a tray, or is it a table? Well it was a tray that sat on top of the table frame. Genius. Not any more. We had to glue it to the base. Every time the kids touched it, it slipped & drinks went everywhere 🤣🙄 #myhousethismonth • Day 21 • Tray •
I have a dream of one day being a full-time writer. The kind of author who takes months off to hide away with no plans for each day other than reading books, drinking tea and of course, writing. When my dream does come true this is where I’m going to do it ; ) @hardysbay_writersretreat ; ) Until then I’m going to create a peaceful library nook in my own home. What’s something you’ve discovered while travelling that you could bring back into your own home ?

This is my favourite sideboard from home. A beauty from back in the day when music devices were stylish, useful items of furniture rather than ugly black boxes to hide away ; )

Found myself a new feed to keep the inspiration flowing. Folks you’ll love this one. @enter_my_attic Is full of colour, plants and simple styling ideas, check it out ; )

The timeless classic shape of a bentwood chair and a tulip table base. Curvy and easy on the eye. If in doubt, add something round to your interior, it offsets all the hard edges ; )

A sweet as vignette to take us into the weekend. I loved picking out the colours from this print ~ if only there was a pink, mauve, mustard vignette emoji to go with !

I’m always looking for new places to travel and shop. This spot @countyltd is looking pretty good. I’d happily take home that brass jug and leather chair 👌 of course I could buy online but it’s just not the same. California here I come ; )

I’ve been quiet here on instagram, an unscheduled break for no reason other than literally being busy ‘doing’ the work rather than ‘showing’ 😂Lucky for me I got to have a working holiday down at the lake. Time to catch up on writing and editing. This is the bestest place to do it, surrounded by nature. For every few hours sitting on my butt in front of the computer I can wander to the water for a recharge. It’s so true that the best form of inspiration is to get out in the wilderness. Just look at the colour of that Lake! How good would that look on a wall. Heading straight to @resenecolour when I’m back home to find a colour match and get painting!

This is it. The last day of the first month of the year and the last day of the biggest @adairs sale ever! Hop online or if you’re lucky enough to not be back at work yet, get to a store now ; ) so much choice, much deliciousness and great value 👌 I confess I had nothing to do with this photo and I’m currently scheming to find a way to holiday at such a place... board and batten, barn doors, white sand... perfect 🙏
Her Cushions totally transformed my green sofa when she visited to shoot her products in my home and today @mairihelena has shared her new collection with me. A very short post on the new section of my blog. Link in Bio
Quite a bit to watch out for this week, I’ve got three giveaways not just one, for a start and some great posts to come. But it’s now time for a cuppa after Alfie’s gym performance and before I take the boys out running
