Over the last month, Mr. SKM and I have been undertaking some household overhauls. From plastering ceilings to installing new lighting, it may be hard work, but it is a privilege to have a home to work on. While we reevaluated the lighting in our rooms, we came across the latest IKEA campaign that is helping to create a safer...

Barbara Hulanicki Viva Blue Wallpaper It may only be the 3rd of March, but tackling this months #Re2014 project of Re-Imaginining has gone crazy here.

I’m always inspired by these beautiful, spacious rooms! (Image source unknown) Does this happen to you? You come home from a holiday away (a week or more) only to walk into your own home and for the first few minutes see it with different eyes. It looks like someone else’s place for a moment.

Nov 22, 13 Daily Outfit –  Walk In The Park

Posted by in 1950, daily outfit, Home & Garden

If you were wondering just how far my love of puppies extends, this may give you a pretty big hint. I know quite a few people who’d be super keen to buy a vintage style dress covered in a puppy print; so when I saw a pic of this appear in my Facebook feed I knew I had to have it.

Daily Outfit – Vintage Roses

  Roses are the one flower that bring back the scent of my childhood. When I used to visit my grandmother’s house, her neighbour across the road always had the most incredible rose garden.
