Just Gonna Hang Out Here For A While..... I realise this is possibly super dull following my front and rear end shots ooo err However its Monday! I am getting used to some new meds so a bit drowsy! And well ! I bloody like it ! So There!  I Love the shadows that play out on the ceilings from all the various plants around the house, and this little corner collection is one of my favourites as the shadows are so dramatic  What do you think?  Do you have a favourite Shadow?? Is that the weirdest Insta question you have ever been asked?? Is it the meds talking?!? Possibly ๐Ÿคฃ  Anyways I likes it and honestly interested to know !x  Hope this week is good for you all, but if its that little bit more difficult than usual for whatever reason that may be, I hope you feel the Love on here like I do as you guys help to lift me on even some of the darker days and help to bring my mind back out of the shadows ๐Ÿ˜˜ so thankyou x ( that totally sounds like the picture and blurb was meant to go together but honestly I am not that clever! Its just where my ramblings took me) (And yes confession time that wallpaper sample on the left is still in the same place it was when I did my should I shouldnt I poll and its stuck up with orange tape!!!!) so indecisive . . . #cornerofmyhome #plantshadows #instaplant #styleithappy #plantlady #instahome #nohouserules #itsgoodtotalk #proudofmyhome #familyproject #unfinishedprojects #shadowcast #myhouseofhouseplants #mentalhealthawareness #instainteriorfamily #interior444 #houseplantsofinstagram #homesofinstagram #walltowallstyle #mydreamhome #instaquestions #lightupmylife #sorealhomes #keepingitreal #bungalowrenovation #renovation #interiorstyling

A HUGE THANKYOU To each and everyone of you lovely lot for helping me reach the 1K Milestone xx I have made some Fabulous connections along the way - you know who you all are!๐Ÿ˜˜ But I will share as many as I can in my stories tomorrow in my own personal shout outs xx (if i am feeling well enough) And Not Forgetting you Lovely Newcomers too Welcome on board, its lovely to make your acquaintance ๐Ÿค— This is our Home - FUF Haus (aka fixingupfarnley) Come on in, take your shoes off and take a seat by the fire its quite nippy outside I’ll put the kettle on Tea or Coffee? Biscuits are none negotiable โ˜บ๏ธ Warning- I tend to waffle on a bit, so if you just like looking at pictures thats fine I won’t be offended But if you fancy a chat about all things home, reno tips or just life then drop me a reply to a post, as the best thing about this Interiors community is the connections we make . I have been procrastinating all day about what picture to share today So I had a good look back at old posts and pictures I have taken And realised I havent actually shown a finished image of the Front of the House yet!!!! How did that happen!๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ So here it is FUF Haus in all its glory, had budget allowed I may have made a bigger change to the front, but decided the back was more important โฉ swipey swipe for the before shot I am so proud of this place we call HOME and so so proud and Thankful of my family who helped us renovate it I plan to share more of the Reno back catalogue at some point in my stories so watch this space  And next week I am planning a Giveaway in honour of my 1K Milestone Catch you later Peeps Night Night Sleep Tight xx . #bungalow #bungalowrenovation #renovation #thehousethatdebbuilt #1kfollowers #instainteriorfamily #instahome #instahomerenovation #instainteriors #nohouserules #nohouserulesmob #styleithappy #familybuildproject #buildingthedream #dreamhome #closetofamily #happyhome #myhomeismysanctuary
I Am Lost For WORDS... The Big 1K is within touching distance now, well thats if you lovely lot stick with me and don’t Unfollow me en-mass Which of course is totally possible! Afterall I am still bewildered as to why so many of you from across the globe have any interest in me, our home and reno journey and put up with my ramblings๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ But that you do and I am Overwhelmed on a daily basis So I won’t say anymore yet, as well we arent there yet and dont want to jinx it do we?!? However what I will say is in the interest of keeping it real, I have been struggling abit these last few weeks and had to take some time out of work This is not unusual for me at this time of year, and there are some things going on which I wont share that have added to my anxieties and depression this time round. But the important thing is I have recognised the signs much sooner and before I get much deeper in to the darkness, so hopefully I am on my way back up  I have been a bit quieter on here because of this, but I dip in and out as basically you lot are freaking awesome  Its been important to me to stay in touch as the positive vibes, comments, love and laughter you guys bring along with some bloody amazing home porn have really helped to give me a boost and keep me on an upward trend back to my normal I am feeling much brighter and hopefully all being well should be back to normal duties next week  No sympathy needed, Its just how it is and who I am, I am very lucky, have a beautiful home, my dogs, my family and my OH But sometimes my brain just goes off the track a little and the dark fog makes normal day to day difficult  I am sharing as simply want to practice what I preach and be open and honest to you and myself #itsgoodtotalk  So upwards and onwards So a huge huge THANKYOU to you awesomely amazing ladies and gents out there Keep it Real Keep it Honest but with Love NOT Hate And when Life Gives you Lemons add some Gin & Tonic and say F*** off Life !!!! I am
๐Ÿ’–VELVET๐Ÿ’– Okay so I was supposed to be focusing on the Utility/Dog Bedroom But as involves other trades and me measuring up and choosing cupboards I have got a little sidetracked๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ Whilst perusing the aisles of Ebay for anything Ex Display My little eye landed upon this absolute Velvet Stunner Ex display and less than half the original retail price King size, blush pink velvet One in stock Local guy I put in my offer price incl delivery and low and behold it was accepted!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ I was super shocked but super pleased and it was delivered in quick sharp time next day (yesterday) !! 4-6 weeks if new!! And oh my god its gooorrgggeeousss ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ If it was superking it would be in the master bedroom as the quality is amazing  Just need to find a good quality but good price mattress now as the one we have on now is a double and the cheapest pocket sprung from Ikea Love ikea mattresses but this one is way too thin - so if you are in the Ikea Mattress buying mode go for the slightly dearer ones as the difference is really worth it๐Ÿ˜Š  Problem is I was actually planning on decorating in here buy hey ho Just like me I never do things simply and in the right order ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ So its not finished yet, but I was just too excited to show you  Too gorgeous to miss though!!๐Ÿค— Artwork is something my OH bought me years ago for xmas, I do like it and it does go in here, but possibly thinking something more modern or abstract would be better if I find something ๐Ÿค” or might have a swap around with the one in our room What do you guys think?? Is it a bit dated? As you may have noticed I am trying out my gorgeous @christy_home Jaipur throw and cushions in here and they do look lush #mychristy  Maybe a new colour for upstairs! God i have started something now haha  Have a lovely sunday peeps xx . . . #velvetbed #interior444 #interiormilk #bedroomdecor #sparebedroom #styleitdark #styleithappy #happyhome #foreverhome #foreverhomemaybe #retroluxe

Wouldn’t it be nice to feel like that everyday !!! Sadly not the case here today as my Migraine continued So this pic wasnt taken today but is fairly recent โฉ Swipe for some before’s  This has to be one of my favourite parts of the house, i have always loved to sit at the top of the stairs and contemplate my next move be that next home project, next meal, work, or even just my next step.. And with Oak stairs I have to be honest they are amazing and I love them, but they are a tad slippy and focusing on my next step is a priority, especially when my head is a bit fuzzy ๐Ÿ˜’ haha  But the main reason I love this space is the huge transformation it has gone through, its very different to the layout that preceded it, we moved the stairs for one, opened up to the roof to create the double height which is quite unexpected in a Bungalow And played with the stud wall layout upstairs to eek out the landing space and create the shower on the other side Chuck in a few velux roof lights, expose and paint the structural purling, add some self designed oak stairs, fabulous bargain lighting, fabulous artwork and some repurposed and upcycled old furniture And for me its a winner ๐Ÿค—  I am going to try and show a few more before and Afters on my stories soon on various areas of the house, when my heads better and I have some time I love to see a transformation so hope it will help others going through it, as its hard to see the end result some times ๐Ÿคช . . . #interior444 #landingdecor #doubleheightspace #velux #staircase #hallstairsandlanding #styleithappy #lovemyhome #howihome #bungalow #hometransformation #walltowallstyle #newinteriorsontheblock #myhousethismonth #showmehowyoushine #scandistyle #scandihome #oakstaircase #interiormilk #renovation #renovationproject
Lazy Sunday... Notice anything different?? ๐Ÿค—  Sorry yes I am sharing pictures of my bedroom windows Again!!! The rest of the house is not photogenic this morning ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ Plus We had a reshuffle yesterday to bring the egg in for winter And i am pretty happy with her up here, I’d like to try and hang her from the roof but not sure where the roof joists are and don’t really fancy knocking holes in my ceiling until I find them. So for for now the frame stays!๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ Also was a struggle to get her through the bedroom door I can tell you! ๐Ÿ˜ญ So my little escape room now feels even more cosy as this egg is super snug You will find me here later when I aim to have an afternoon nap after lunch with the folks, to ready myself for work tomorrow My head is still feeling heavy this morning and can’t quite shift the headache I have had for days Any suggestions peeps for Migraines?? I know a few of you guys suffer with them too  Anyways have a lovely day you lovely lot, anything exciting planned or just a chilled sunday?? Let me know I love to know what else is happening in the world  BTW very few fireworks round here last night so all good for the dogs, lets see how the next few days go. . . . . #gablewindows #mastersuite #bedroomdecor #eggchair #styleithappy #styleitupsunday #sundayvibes #howihome #renovation #bungalow #bungalowfungalow #fungalowreno #foreverhome #homeishere #sundaychill #masterbedroom #interiorboom #interiormilk #interior444

WEEKEND Ready for it, Need It, Love It, Home It  Wishing you all a Happy Friday night and a Fabulous weekend Peeps xx  So Interiors aside for tonight (not offended if you dont read this as its MH related #sorrynotsorry ) For me my plans are to stay home and get well Following a week of a Head Cold and lack of sleep I had quite a bad Anxiety attack earlier today as I arrived at work, I wont go into details tonight as frankly 1) I am too exhausted to think, and 2) Its friday so not wanting to dull the friday buzz for everyone too much In short i came home and went straight to bed where I slept all afternoon God i needed it So this weekend will be quiet, at home and just getting well with time for myself It won’t be fun or exciting but its definitely needed Not looking for sympathy so no need to comment, as always i just want to normalise this for everyone and say #itsokaynottobeokay Although just hope work feel the same ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Its not easy to make that decision to just go home, it feels like failing, quitting But I must ignore those thoughts  So on a lighter note I am Wishing you all to have the weekend you need too whatever that need may be xxx  Lazy / Tired repost of a story photo I shared the other night, but I do love it so its okay ๐Ÿ˜˜ And this is just a mini blip, I am hoping normal interiors service will resume shortly x . . #mentalhealthawareness #foreverhome #itsgoodtotalk #anxietyawareness #anxietydisorder #lightandshadows #interiorinspo #webuiltthedream #darkinteriors #cosylounge #sorealhomes

Either that is the Biggest Bunch of Banana’s i have ever seen!! Or its the cutest little shopping Basket ever - You decide โ˜บ๏ธ Happy Sunday InstaFam how are we all doing so far  Anyone made use of that extra โฐ this morning ?!? If so what did you manage to do with that Hour? Or are you saving it up for Monday morning?๐Ÿคฃ We were up with Larks again and out for a dog walk as it was so fresh and sunny 1st thing  As i have said before i am really not a morning person and even more so on the meds, but the impact of living with someone that is used to getting up at 3 in the morning (yes i meant 3!!) is that he gets up early at the weekend too 6-7 is a lie in for him!!! NOT for me ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด But anyways the joy of doing it at the weekend is you are up and out with the ๐Ÿถ’s and then back having a snooze on the sofa an hour later Cant do that in the week can you?! Fighting off the start of a cold today ๐Ÿคง๐Ÿ˜ท so fresh air will do me good  Picked up this most appropriate mug yesterday from a local village country shop โ˜•๏ธ is that not just me on a mug! And this cute little plant and handpainted alcohol ink pot from @blueberryhillink  how cute is this Lots of artwork there too, new fan alert ๐Ÿ’š Enjoy the day peeps xx . #sundayvibes #shoppingtreats #treatsforthehome #kitchendecor #styleithappy #bungalowrenovation #renovation #houseplantsofinstagram #plantlady #handpainted #localcrafts #ilovetea #loveacuppa #minishoppingbasket #howihome #newinteriorsontheblock  this this could also sum up #thisisme ๐Ÿ˜
Evening Campers x I do hope you are all sat with a glass of something fizz in your hand ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿธ๐Ÿน๐Ÿบ๐Ÿท I thought i’d partake in a small glass of Fruity Cider this evening ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿˆ So looking for help What you guys watching?  Recommend any good thriller themed movies or Netflix series at the mo? I’ve just finished ‘The Haunting of Hill House’, and let me tell you after a slightly slow and confusing start (mostly down to the fact i was multitasking with Insta) i was soon hooked  Anyone else watched it? If so what did you think?? . Anyways thought id grab a quick shot of the bath/bed when i popped upstairs earlier as not really taken any up here at night, and the lighting just gave off a gorgeous glow ๐Ÿ’› So after a quick faff (read chucking the clothes out the way/throwing the bedding on/tidying the towels) and squeezing my way into the corner of the room at an angle a contortionist would be proud of, i captured this little square for you Bathtime maybe ?!??๐Ÿ˜Œ . . #styleithappy #scandinavianstyle #mastersuite #bedandbath #bedroomdecor #loftconversion #sorealhomes #walltowallstyle #bungalowrenovation #renovation #newinteriorsontheblock #myhousethismonth #cosyspace #interior444 #interiorboom #hyggehome #mydecorvibe #mydecorhaven #mystylednest #justhome #scandi #softlighting #interiorlighting #ekbbhome #bedroomlighting
#thisisme this week for #newinteriorsontheblock  Evening Instapals Hope you are all having a fabulous friday evening I have been a little instasbsent with my posts this week as not been too well, however as its the weekend i thought id best get in on the act for this weeks #newinteriorsontheblock theme ThisIsMe whilst i still can I think this shot sums me up pretty well.. โฉ swipe for some progress and before shots -A bit dark and moody at times, but a light bright side is always just around the corner ๐Ÿ™ƒ -Muddled up mix of styles=eclectic/indecisive with a muddled up mind at times ๐Ÿ˜‚ -the core of the room, walls floors ceilings all often appear as hard as nails, whilst really behind the outer shell lies some soft and fluffy insulation -Old and New, Bargain and Spend, Recycle and Reuse where i can, love a Bargain with my 2nd hand ebay sofa and a new rug adds a layer of softness -This room also contains one of my proudest and biggest achievements from the renovation which of course is my beautiful oak herringbone flooring which i laid all by my little self, i am not a confident person but i will always do and try my best and will give any task a try. And this was definitely one job i knew from the start i wanted to do myself, and have to admit it turned out pretty good ๐Ÿ˜ Have a lovely weekend peeps, i am hoping the weekend will see me well and fighting fit for next week . . #hyggehome #interior444 #cosyspace #bungalowrenovation #interiorboom #lounge #styleithappy  #happyhome #styleitdark #parquet #herringbone
