The Upstairs Loo

If you know me personally, chances are that you will have heard my horror stories regarding the upstairs toilet in our house. If you don’t, be thankful that you only have to endure the blog-appropriate version! I’m not sure how long the room had been left the way it was, but the basis is that… Continue reading The Upstairs Loo

The Study

With our bedroom and guest room finished, we were finally in a position to put our plans for the third bedroom into action. We decided fairly early on that we wouldn’t be using it as a bedroom, firstly as we didn’t require a third one and secondly as it seemed a shame to waste a… Continue reading The Study

The Guest Room / The Nursery

We decided that we didn't actually need our other two bedrooms to be used as bedrooms with just the two of us living in the house. However, we knew that we definitely wanted one of them to be utilised as a guest room for our family and friends to stay in when they visit. We agreed… Continue reading The Guest Room / The Nursery

Although it's not a room in itself, the hallway is quite a focal point within our house so I thought I'd blog about the changes that we have made to it since moving in.

Its story is similar to that of the kitchen in that we decided to clean the room up and accessorise it as opposed to completely renovate it. This was in order to speed up the process of moving… Continue reading The Bathroom

Littered with rusty bikes, a barbecue, a paddling pool, a tent, endless amounts of planks of wood and anything else bulky and unsightly that you can think of, it would be an understatement to say that the room… Continue reading The Utility Room

The Kitchen

We were lucky enough to have an extension already built onto the back of our house when we bought it. Inclusive of a large kitchen and bathroom, the extension makes the whole house more open and spacious. We felt so grateful to have landed on our feet particularly with a huge fitted kitchen that we… Continue reading The Kitchen

The Sitting Room

To say that I disliked what we originally called the ‘middle room’ in our house would be an understatement, as it honestly put me off buying the property when we viewed it. I was frantically shaking my head, pulling bemused faces at Darren and feeling desperate to leave.  To quote myself: “No way. Not a… Continue reading The Sitting Room
