Whether you’ve been in my house or you follow my blog, you’ll know that I absolutely love interior design. I’m no professional, but I believe with the powers of Pinterest and online shopping, anything is possible. It’s probably pretty fair to say that the majority of my disposable cash goes on furniture and decor.
I’m a huge fan of Scandinavian design, from mid-century to modern designs. Whatever your budget, it’s quite easy to get the look. Although my bedroom is furnished using only genuine G-Plan pieces, I do have some replica designer pieces in my home, too. You’ve probably seen them before, but I’m a huge fan of the Eames RAR chairs. I have a couple in the office (one black arm chair and a yellow chair) and a white rocker in the lounge.
Although I think they’re worth it, I simply can’t afford to spend hundreds on one piece of furniture so I ordered replicas. Personally, I can barely tell the difference but I’ve still got the style I want in my home […]
One of the biggest decisions you’ll make before your big day is simply where to hold the festivities, and is most likely to be the largest cost you’ll face in the planning stages. So, without further ado, we’ll guide you down the aisle to find your perfect venue.
Making the Decision
Choosing a venue for your wedding depends on your own personal tastes; whether you want historic charm, impressive scale, luxury, simplicity, outdoors, indoors, rural or urban. It can be difficult to find a shortlist of venues with the perfect blend of features by yourself, and so many other aspects to plan, no one can blame you for feeling daunted.
If you’re feeling snowed under, there are expert planners like One Events on hand to help. Planners know weddings, and will cater for your every wedding whim, present you with the best choices in one place. With a planner, you’re in charge of the decision-making.
Budgeting for your wedding needs a lot of organisation, so, apologies to the spreadsheet-phobic, but creating a breakdown […]
Okay, so you’ve probably seen my posts recently about bohemian inspired conservatories. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m absolutely obsessed with pinning, shopping and decorating garden decor right now. We’ve been blessed with such beautiful weather, so why be cooped up indoors? That said, as much as I want to just lie in the garden all day, I have a responsibility to pay the mortgage and keep my clients happy. So, what’s a girl to do? One word: Garden rooms!
Ever since I built my outdoor little fort underneath my decking in the garden (you can head over here to see it!), I’ve felt so much more productive. I find it really important having a separate space for a work environment, away from the relaxation of my lounge and bedroom. Even though, I do love have a cup of tea, light some incense and unwind down there occasionally.
NOTE: This isn’t my home or garden (we can dream, right?) Just some more inspiration *sigh*
The fort is inspired by bohemian patterns and is pretty much […]
So, you probably saw that S and I recently went on the Harmony of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. If not, you can read about it over on the blog here *wink wink, nudge nudge!*.
It was the first time that S had been on a cruise ship, but I’d been on a few in the past. Granted, it had been some time, but I was lucky enough to do a lot of cruising and traveling with my family when I was younger. We headed to the Caribbean mostly, so I’ve pulled together the top destinations, which I hope to again return to soon!
There really is no better summer destination than the Caribbean. Gorgeous sandy beaches, turquoise waters, rugged mountain terrain, lush forests and palm trees gently swaying in the breeze ensure that this area of the world is a relaxation oasis. However, the Caribbean also boasts plenty of fun and adventure with water sports, hiking trails, swimming with dolphins and safari being just a few options.
The best way to […]
Hey there! I’m Sam, a lover of Scandinavian homeware, floppy eared bunnies and pepperoni pizza. It’s probably easiest to re-wind a little, to tell you about who I am and about my little blog!
During university I was lucky enough to take part in a study abroad exchange for a semester in Queensland, Australia studying psychology and marketing at Griffith University, Gold Coast. After jumping 14,000ft out of plane, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and riding an elephant through a safari in Indonesia, it was time to return […]
