When In Doubt, Fake It

monstera leaf and tree from Ikea When I say I have a love, hate relationship, it’s more that I love plants and they hate me. Greenery in my home makes me burst with happiness and I’m sure there’s a correlation between the growing amount of green life in the flat and the amount I enjoy…

Brush stroke storage boxes

I’m all about storage, big and small, wide and skinny, I don’t mind aslong as it hides clutter in a pretty way. I’m forever shoving things away in boxes and corners of our cupboards, so much so I don’t often remember where anything is, much to my husbands disgrace. ‘Where’s that form I left on…

There are some beautiful woven wall hangings out there but as I’ve said before, I’m a little impatient and want a similar result but quicker. They’re also pretty pricey to…

There wasn’t too much detective work required to pin it down to the very rigid, uncomfy dining chairs we had. I was working at the dining table and therefore I’d just sat on what was already there.
