Another interiors obsession post coming at you! This time, I’ve discovered Oliver Bonas, an awesome brand who stock the nicest homewares ever. We’re talking all the neon, natural wood and copper you can shake a stick at! I’ve been doing some Pinteresting, of course and I’m loving the natural base with bright pops of colour look at the moment. I’ve narrowed it down to three elements in this post that I think are necessary to get this fresh interior look.
After 3 days of DIY and a whole load of paint we’ve finally finished decorating our guest room! It looks cosmetically lovely now, if you don’t look at the floor or into the corners too closely. I live in a really old house and it was pretty run down when we took it on so this is as good as we can get it as we also rent! But, I think it looks quite lovely now and I’d be happy to have people to stay whereas before I wouldn’t have even slept in there myself by choice!
So, our new house is all you’ll hear me talking about at the moment but sorry, not sorry! So exciting. Anyway, a new house wouldn’t be complete without a little wish list would it? I’m dying to get a DAB digital radio, preferably a beautiful retro/vintage looking one like the Roberts radios in the pretty pastel colours. Next up, pretty plates are always a must for when people come over for tea of course and these Cath Kidston ones are just perfectly pretty. I’ve also got some CK towels in the mix there, I’m loving polka dots at the moment. On the china/crockery note, Luke needs an L mug because I’ve got an A one and it’s my favourite!
This is the little place that is going to be keeping up so busy for the next few weeks, perhaps months! It’s a lovely little terrace but it needs some serious TLC. We’re talking full on paint job and a lot of filler. So I’m hoping to do a few before, during and after photos for a little interiors series! Here’s a pic heavy post of the damage that needs repairing, ha! But we hope to have it up and running really soon and turn it into our beautiful first home.
This weekend was my baby twin sisters’ birthday. But, they’re not so baby anymore! They’re 9 and I can’t believe it, nearly double figures. They had separate birthday parties because they’re like chalk and cheese. One being pastel coloured hair chalk and the other being a big bit of Stilton. I’m not even joking, my 9 year old sister is obsessed with stinky cheese and the other one loves all things fashion, hair and beauty! E had a Build-A-Bear Party the weekend before and Little G had a crafty party at a local craft centre at home in Chippenham, called Krafty Monkey! They specialise in decoupage which is essentially sticking different coloured and patterned bits of paper and decorating things, it’s amazing. It’s really fun and therapeutic and G loves it! Anyway, there was an empty seat because one of her friends couldn’t come in the end so me and Luke decided we could jump in a make some new ornaments for our new house! So this happened! I went for a gingham, spotty and stripy affair in red, yellow and black and Luke went for a cheeky camo number! They end up really shiny and smooth with the layer of PVA that y0u put over them!
