We have moved into our new home, and it’s fantastic to have space at last! Now our little boy is super active, to have room for him to run around and play is really special. The house is so light and bright, exactly what we wanted. And all the features are in tact because it hasn’t been touched since… More We’re in!
When we started the search for our family home earlier this year, our brief was we wanted a 1960’s house which hadn’t been touched since the sixties. We love midcentury design, but all of the houses we went to look around had been stripped of all their sixties quirkiness and features. Then one day on rightmove… More Our dream midcentury home
I’m back after a very long blog break and there have been lots of things going on. I’ll fill you in! In September I had a baby boy, he’s almost 10 months now and he’s wonderful. His name is Heath Falcon, and he’s a little adventurer. He started crawling quite early, and as soon as he was… More New adventures
Our compact kitchen is now a much nicer room to spend time cooking in. The makeover is finished, and Stuart did it all himself (apart from the gas work) in two weeks – he’s getting very good at fitting Ikea kitchens! We needed the kitchen to be finished quite quickly and to a budget. So things… More Our before and after kitchen makeover
I am a bit late in sharing this news with you all, but my husband and I are expecting our first baby! Baby Robinson is due early September. We have chosen not to find out if baby R is a boy or girl – although most bets are on boy at the moment. We’re really excited,… More Nesting
I’m back from a lovely week in Madeira, and rather than letting the post holiday blues get to me, I’m thinking how we can update our flat with new projects, paint and products. The new Ikea PS collection for 2014 has some really nice items, with bold colours and quirky design features. Here are my top… More Ikea PS 2014 collection
We’re going on holiday this weekend to Madeira, for a week of relaxation. We chose Madeira because it looks peaceful, which is exactly what we want for a week. We’re staying in a lovely hotel overlooking the sea. I can’t wait! If I was to book another holiday anytime soon though, I’d like to stay… More Time to escape
After months of winter grey, the sun is out and London is starting to look more colourful again. I’m starting to think of changing things around in our flat, ready for warmer days (hopefully) ahead. Zara home has some great inspiration for injecting some summer colour into homes, with lovely accessories and details. I especially love the… More Summer colour
Wow this week has been a manic one, I’m looking forward to taking it easy this weekend hanging out in Crystal Palace, looking around vintage shops and eating nice food. There’s a whole Friday to get through before that though, so here’s a cool and quirky house to stare at for 10 minutes and make… More Happy Friday!
We now have planning approval for our extension, see here for the plans, which is really exciting. It does mean that our horrible kitchen needs to stay as it is for a while longer until we can knock it down and build a nice new one! However, as yet another tile spontaneously falls off the… More Friday kitchen envy
