Transforming Our Non-Working Dining Room Fireplace

Transforming Our Non-Working Dining Room Fireplace

Some call it a non-working fireplace, I call it a 'hole in the wall'. The place where there was at one time a fireplace and at some point in time, someone (tragically) decided to rip it out, plaster it up and call it good. I've seen quite a lot of them in my time and...

DIY: Laying Engineered Oak Parquet Flooring

DIY: Laying Engineered Oak Parquet Flooring

It's been my dream to have parquet flooring long before we moved into our current house. Back in 2010, when we moved into our previous home, one of the very first projects we took on was laying new pine flooring in our living room. At that time, I loved the look of...

Dining Room Mood Board Reveal

Dining Room Mood Board Reveal

As things go with almost any renovation project, over the last 8 or so months, my entire focus has been on the extension and then the new kitchen. As a result, I feared (for a while there anyway) that the adjoining dining room may end up being an afterthought at best...

My Christmas Dining Room (and a Pink Christmas Tree!)

On Monday, I shared my Christmas tablescape and within that post, you will have seen a bit of the dining room as it's decorated for Christmas. One of the reasons I was so desperate to give this room a bit of a refresh (you can see that here) was because I wanted to be...

My 2018 Christmas Dinner Table Setting

My 2018 Christmas Dinner Table Setting

I adore doing Christmas table settings. Actually, I just enjoy doing table settings in general but at Christmas, I feel like I can really pull out the stops and have a bit of fun with it. Because if you can't go all out on the decor at Christmas, when can you? While...

Budget Dining Room Refresh Reveal (in a weekend!)

Budget Dining Room Refresh Reveal (in a weekend!)

About a week and a half ago, I came to the realisation that my dining room had turned into a dumping ground. From fabric, tiles, paint and flooring samples to bits of decor and art I had no place for, the space was littered with the discarded, unloved and disorganised...

How I’ve Styled the Dining Room (For Now)

How I’ve Styled the Dining Room (For Now)

Okay, let's just start off this post by saying, I'm not happy with this room. Not really even as just a 'temporary situation'. There are a whole host of reasons why this is not even close to what I want this space to eventually look like, starting with the fact that...

My Christmas Dining Room

While I'm fully aware that there are a whole bunch of bloggers currently showing off their gorgeous Christmas decorations, buying guides and tips for the holidays, I feel like I'm really failing when it comes to the holiday season this year. The truth is that every...

Going Bespoke: Marble & Brass Dining Room Table

Going Bespoke: Marble & Brass Dining Room Table

Do you remember my blog post about things I think are a worthwhile investment in your home? One of those things was a dining room table and/or chairs. The way I see it, the table takes up a heck of a lot of the visual space in a dining room and so you might as well...

Spring Updates in the Dining Room

Spring Updates in the Dining Room

So I mentioned that I'd swapped a few things around in the dining room when I shared a few updates in the living room last month. The biggest one: deciding on a whim to swap the rugs between the two rooms. I'd meant to show you the result of that swap soon after that...

My Formula For Styling a Bar Cart

My Formula For Styling a Bar Cart

I want to talk to you today about bar cart styling but first a bit of psychology. You know those silly online tests you can take to determine whether you are more 'right-brained' or 'left-brained'? I always come out nearly equal - 50% left brain, 50% right brain. Not...

DIY Hanging Planter – From Industrial to Glam!

DIY Hanging Planter – From Industrial to Glam!

You may recall that recently I was invited to Rose & Grey's new showroom in Altrincham. Whilst I was there, I spotted a cute hanging planter in the shop. It was quite industrial in it's design (which as you probably know by now, isn't really my kind of thing) but...

VIDEO: How to Create a Faux Marble Shelf

You all know my obsession with marble-effect contact paper or sticky back plastic as it's known here in the UK. I have used it throughout my home for various projects - you can see my marble topped chest of drawers, the floating vanity we created for the dressing room...

The REVEAL of My Eclectic Boho Glam Dining Room!

You have no idea how excited I am to finally be sharing this room with you. And I know everyone is just gonna scroll down to the pics (because yeah, I'd be doing that too) but since early February when we started the work on this room, not one inch of the space hasn't...
