A bathroom makeover

Regular readers of mine will probably know that we moved to our forever home, coming up to three years ago now. My in-laws had done a great job of getting it to where it was when we moved in, but there were some rooms which really needed updating. We redecorated all of the bedrooms, the living room, and the kitchen; but one room we haven’t really touched on is the bathroom. Don’t get me wrong, my in-laws had it updated around 10 years ago (thank goodness – it was an awful avocado green colour before that!) but I would love to remodel it ourselves one day. But, that will probably be quite a few lot of years down the line.

I’m a bit of a daydreamer though and I do have a few wishful makeover posts already on the blog; my visions of a loft library, an office wish list, and an outdoorsy one with a patio makeover. So of course, I have to share my bathroom dreams with you. The main theme of my bathroom would be light & airy, to be both relaxing & comforting. In an ideal world with unlimited funds, we’d probably have to build a separate one for the kids, so they don’t spoil ours! Read more

Spring garden inspiration with Fishpools

April is here, spring is upon us, which means lots of long days spent in the garden are ahead. With Jacob being at school now, and Noah now going to nursery for three mornings a week, I will also have the garden all to myself for a few hours a week – heaven! Well, I will be sharing it with a dog now, also…

We moved into this house one and a half years ago, and have done quite a bit of work on the garden already; but, we still don’t have it near where we want it. I know we will get there eventually though, and I hope we can put some work into it this summer, so it is all ready for us to enjoy completely next year! Read more
