One day, in 11th grade English, my name was drawn out of a hat to speak in front of the class about the book we were reading. Well, I blacked out and no joke did not say a word the whole time. — May your week go faster than those 2 long, awkward minutes. — // also it’s a coincidence that my teenager’s drawing of an hourglass is on the chalkboard there. I think that was related to his grounding. 😆//
So much to do today... and here I am on Instagram 🤷🏻♀️ These shelves are full of Breyer horses that were my mom’s when she was a little girl... it doesn’t get more vintage than that! (No offense, mom 😬)
Hier, j'ai passé mon après midi à @floralux_be en Belgique, vous connaissez certainement pour ceux habitant dans le Nord de la France, magasin de déco et de plantes, et des plantes et encore des plantes de partout 😁... Comme vous avez pu le voir dans ma story j'ai été très raisonnable, je suis revenue juste avec un balai à feuille pour l'extérieur...ah oui et des gauffres aussi😆😋 hihi !!! En tant normal, je me serai jeté sur la déco et je serai bien entendu revenue avec ses fameuses plantes très tendance actuellement, mon homme aurait fait la tronche en me disant "encore!?!?!!"😂😂 J'ai tendance à acheter au coup de coeur mais je me lasse malheureusement très vite aussi...! Alors je me félicite! !!😂😂 Et vous, avez vous tendance également à acheter au coup de coeur?? #homesweethome#homestyle#homedesign#kitchendesign#blackkitchen#blackandwood#instakitchen#dailykitchen#cuisine#ixina#house#industrialhome#nordichome#scandihome#madeco#howimonochrome#minimaliste#interior4all#interior123#renovation#decoaddict#interior#interiør#interiör#interieur#macuisine
I love our little guest bath so much mostly because I don’t think my kids know it exists. Hide and seek has never been so rewarding. Swipe to see our sweet little round window that inspired the mirror.
Write off. . Today marks a first in this loooong renovation project. Never before have we had a cock up that couldn't be salvaged. . This unit which took a week of building, filling, sanding and some painting just needs to be scrapped and written off to a bad experience. . Galling not because of the money wasted but the time involved. In hindsight we should have just called it a day on the plywood when it started splintering and peeling and some of the layers separating but not ones to be put off by a challenge, we persevered. Apparently there's a problem with plywood quality just now....or is that a story I've been spun?? . I should have kids sleeping in their own bedroom and an ensuite to tile by now.....but new solid pine wood ordered to start again. 😢
Today on #myhousethismonth is ‘contrast’ so thought I’d share the bathroom I’ve just finished as a lick of paint has made a big contrast to what it looked like before. (Swipe to see) Theres also a good contrast between the black and ivory walls. ☯️
Contrast ~ @myhousethismonth. . . Prints. I love them. Our house is full of them. The hubby and I always disagree on which ones to get, but in the end.. I always get my way! 😉 . . . . . . #howimonochrome#myhome#modernrusticdecor#myinteriorvibe#interiorandliving#mynordicroom#homeinteriors#heyhomehey#huggehome#nteriordesign#intagram#homedesign#minimalist#interior4all#interior123#nordicinspiration#scandinavianinterior#discoverunder10k#homestyling#nordicdesign#bedroomdecor#nordicliving#interiors#designlife#styleitdark#interior125#cornerofmyhome#myhomestyle#indoorjungle#yeshm
Another Angle // So here’s another angel of our main bathroom and where once cleaned stays clean for approximately ✌🏼 mins! Anyone else wonder around the house muttering “why do I bother”. The unit was found in a local charity shop 👏🏼, looks good (I think 😁) and great for storage! Have a good day! 🖤..xx

⁝⁞⁝ Home. Has many definitions & views. Some say home is where the heart is, where you were born, where you were raised....but to me... - Home is a place of comfort. A place to be unapologetically myself that I share with my love unit; Greg, Sky + plants. A place to express myself creatively through interior design. A place I share but is also totally my own. - Home is a feeling. Feelings of happiness, security, LOVE, comfort, & joy. A safe haven that I’ve decided to share with you guys. - This space will strictly be about our home life while @raisingoursmalls. Welcome & enjoy. — Living Room
It’s our first official day of Spring Break. I’ve already sent storage bins crashing in the garage which broke an actual ton of glass, and cleaned up where the baby spilt a full glass of sweet tea on my bed (No, I don’t give the baby tea to drink). I’m currently contemplating the amount of actual sanity and brain cells I have left based on my complete inability to measure and do math. It took so long and I messed up so many times that I actually wound up eyeballing those picture frames. I did diy the garland and will make a few more for the shop... other than that it’s been slow going on the dining shelves... I’m so bad at styling shelves! I’m off to send my people outdoors while I attempt to get the kitchen back in order and mop the floor. And all the moms had a good collective laugh with/at me.
Do you ever wonder where a part of you that was so intrinsically you went to? How that part of you slowly disappeared & you didn’t even realise? I used to be obsessed with clothes, not just clothes but fashion. I subscribed to vogue from the age of 19, knew every name of every model & who they were married to or shagging that week. I attended pattern cutting & dress making classes in the evenings after a hard days work,for 4 years & was often introduced in my office days, to new employees as “Karen our Trendy one”. Think Corinne from swing out sister & that was my 80’s doppelganger. I’m not even sure how or when my love affair with clothes slowly waned but I’ve found recently & to my despair that clothes have become less of a joy to me & more of a practicality. Like a uniform that I put on each day without much thought. I’m not even joking when I say I’ve lived in two pairs of pin striped trousers & a John Lewis navy polo neck jumper for almost 6 months! Although this is very ethical & should be applauded, quite frankly it’s got to stop!✋ I preferred the other me & id like to get that part of me back, the part that covets the latest cut or colour & is first at the door of H&M as the new designer collab lands.where is that girl?I need to find her & bring her back. Is there are part of you that’s missing in action that you’d like to send a search party out for? . . . #streetscape#streetview#storetraits#theshopkeepers#thehappynow#thoughtsfortheday#facadelovers#thetraveltag#citylimitless#what_i_saw_in_nyc #prettycitynewyork#travellerinnewyork#picturesofnewyork#ageisnotavariable#agelessstyle#insearchofjoy#howimonochrome#shopsmall#thevisualscollective#myeverydaymagic#thestoryofeveryday#make_more_magic #inspiringspaces
