Pretty, Dirty Laundry: A Nursery DIY

Do you ever find a temporary solution to something and then realise six months down the line that you’re temporary solution has become a permanent fixture? That’s what happened with Maggie’s laundry bin. Wow that sounds like a dull way to introduce a post but I’ll continue anyway.

Light up, as if you have a choice

2018 sees us bringing the outside in with more than just house plants, now extending to materials like concrete, terrazzo and terracotta. I happen to be a big fan of the earthy tone and texture of terracotta and how it can so easily soften a minimal and predominantly monochrome space. It doesn’t take much of…

Bag It Up

So here’s the thing, I bought a blush cushion cover in Ikea a good 4 months ago, simply because it was the most perfect shade of blush anyone could wish for (not too pink, not too dark) and it was a bargain £3! I wasn’t sure I needed another cushion in my life but I…

Stockings Hung By The Fire

That time of year is upon us and this Christmas we are no longer two but three! It’s Maggie’s first Christmas and while she ain’t going to remember a single thing, I still want to make it special and start new traditions. One of those has to be her very own stocking to fill. I…

Playtime

 It’s my first time back on the blog since the birth of our little babe! If you follow me on Instagram you may know we had Magda Lisbeth Muncey on the 12th September at 10.17am and have been besotted with her ever since. It’s crazy that the last post all about her nursery was scheduled…

Let Your Ears Do The Talking

Things swing in roundabouts don’t they? I remember loving myself a statement earring at uni. I was all about those big ol’ gems in my ears for a night out or even just a trip in for some studio time. My mum used to call them my Pat Butcher earrings and that was probably a…

Just Hanging Out, Looking Stylish

I have a confession…this DIY was invented to resolve a very real bugbear I have at home that’s, been getting on my nerves ever since living with my Husband. I love him very much and he’s actually very neat and tidy for a boy but we both have certain blind spots around the home (I…

What’s In The Box?

I don’t know about you but I’ve spent a lot of time lately, lusting after terrazzo everything. I was particularly in love with the technique when I visited Paris in March and between the wall in Cafe Kitsuné and the gorgeous table tops in Peonies Cafe, I knew I had to recreate something similar for…

Creating A Baby Nook with Cult Furniture

Many of you may already know that we have a baby girl on the way and so we’re finally starting to think about how we might have to re-arrange our current guest bedroom for her arrival. We were definitely in denial for the first half of the pregnancy but now time seems to be running…

The Easiest Way To Say “I Made This”

I’ve been dreaming up an embroidery DIY for a while now but in all honesty I really haven’t got the time to stitch a beautifully intricate motif. I wish I did but that isn’t my reality right now and I’m sure lots of you are in the same boat. I decided to cheat a little and…

It’s So Fluffy I’m Gonna Die

I’m becoming quite the collector of fluffy ‘stroke me’ cushions in our pad! I’m not sure how that happened but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s nice to break up a room by adding in some textures, particularly when most of the room is one colour, in my case all grey!

Pucker Up

This story begins when I got my tattoo post Christmas. I’d been told to keep it moisturised and that cocao butter was really good for this. I speedily ordered myself what can only be described as a bucket of the stuff, without really realising it came in solid flakes. The smell was literally amazing, full…

Creative Gift Wrapping with Scotch Tape

Gift wrapping can either be an delicate art or a case of crumpling paper until it fits and slamming on some tape for good measure. When you’re organised and have time it’s a beautiful thing, an activity you can do perched in front of Elf or Love Actually, feeling all together jolly. Unfortunately I can only…

Scandi tableware

This make was inspired by a trip to one of my favourite shop for ‘things you never knew you needed’, Flying Tiger. I came across this lovely grey marl, jersey yarn and instantly had to buy it and worry about dreaming up a use for it later. It wasn’t long before I was taken with the…

I’ve been merrily thinking up more and more craft projects during my Wednesday morning swims (exercise plus DIY planning) and now I…

30 Minute Terrarium

I think my DIY projects might be getting easier and easier folks!…or maybe I’m getting lazier and lazier? Even so, that means it’s much more tempting for you guys to have a go. This one takes all of about half an hour but looks the part, I’m sure you’ll agree. It’s so little work you…

Give A Plant A Home

Hello folks! I’m back with a quick and easy DIY idea for you all to rustle up. In a (possibly short lived) celebration of resurrecting my air plants, I decided to give them a new and improved home. I used my old time favourite, polymer clay to make my green friends king of their castle. I…
