We Have Moved - A Sneak Peek at our new Home


You may have noticed I haven't posted in a while, I have been busy packing, unpacking, decorating and then settling in. I can't believe how stressful the whole process has been and how tears I've shed but now we are in and mostly unpacked it's totally all been worth it.

My favorite room in the house is the kitchen dining room, it's the heart of the house and over looks the garden so while I'm busy cooking I can watch the little lads play. I've been able to get creative and try a little upcycling with old furniture which I love and this has inspired me to add a new 'Homeware' section to this blog (coming soon) 

My other favorite room in the house is the little lads bedroom, which I wanted to share with you today, its far from finished but I love how its coming along.


I found this vintage trunk in a gamers shop of all places, it was displayed in the window and costs only £10.00! I have been looking for one for ages and have always been out bid on eBay as they are often used as quirky coffee tables so was delighted when I found this one. Its in excellent condition and I use it as a toy box. When the little lads Nanna saw it, she said it reminded her of one she use to have when she was travelling as a teeneager but hers had loads of old travel luggage stickers on it, I loved this idea so went searching for some vintage travel stickers and found these replicates on eBay. They are perfect, Tiger loves looking at them and for me makes the trunk more 'boys room friendly'.


Who knew I would ever be so excited about wall paper, I only wanted a subtle statement wall for the boys bedroom. I adore stripes, especially those that clash and this Laura Ashley wall paper is perfect and has pulled in all the other stripes around the room together.


There's still so much more I want to do with their bedroom but so far I love it and so do they, they've both settled in nicely and are so happy to be sharing a room (lets hope this continues!!)
