Botanical Print

This is just a quick post because I just had to show you this print from Ikea that I just fell in love with. This botanical butterfly print is just perfect for so many places in the house but at the moment, I’m favouring the study. It would look fantastic offset against a dark wood … Continue reading

Gingham Style!

Heeeey sexy homeware.

Need a new bathroom?

You have finally saved up the pennies and just about had enough of the suite you’re stuck with. It’s time for a new bathroom. But where to start? For the average house, bathrooms aren’t big and come in funny shapes, making your dreams a little less realistic and your job a lot harder. And a … Continue reading

Make your own: Vintage Prints

This time I have my mind set on their Georgian Townhouse set. Fantastic, isn’t it? But pricey too. This … Continue reading

Holidays are coming…

I’m really getting into the festive mood now, what with all the Christmas adverts and the decorations popping up in the shops. Usually at this time of year, I get a little bah humbug about the earliness of it all but this year I couldn’t be more happy! I’ve lined up a few pieces to … Continue reading

CRAFT: Decorate your walls with book pages

I just love this idea. This clever blogger (bywilma.com) has thought of using old books in a brand new way, just as I mentioned in my impulse buys post. She’s drawn on some of the pages, bicycles and things, and the effect is just wonderful. What a talking point! I love how some are more … Continue reading
