So, back in January of this year we were told that an extension to add a new bedroom to the house would be tens of thousands of pounds. It was only when our mortgage advisor said “Why don’t you do a garage conversion it’s a lot of cheaper?” that we considered renovating our garage. So, this is our before and after for an affordable office conversion for Hubby to work from home.
We just love our new utility room floor; it is the most stylish pattern and I just love walking into the room. It’s funny how a new floor can make you smile so much. Choosing suitable flooring for family life can be tricky as it has to be durable and easy to clean. That’s why we chose this design from Harvey Maria, Lattice Tarn LVT designed by Dee Hardwicke.
Coming back to pictures and memories can definitely help everyone survive this lockdown and keep positive. I recently discovered Colorland and they have really helped to brighten up my home and seeing these wonderful memories every day, is certainly bringing a smile to my face. Colorland have also offered my readers a special discount too! So, we have added some finishing touches to our home, to get us through lockdown with a smile on our faces.
We have loved doing up our home over the past year. One of the major spaces we have changed is our master bedroom and obviously it is the space that not many people see. It looked completely different from when we moved in; vibrant pink and a 40 plus year old carpet. We have truly given it a makeover and some love.
As you know we moved into our new home back in January and it has been a very busy time making our family home. We finally, thankfully, managed to get the children’s bedrooms carpeted over bank holiday weekend and this kicked off a trail of events. Once the carpet was complete, we could build Isla’s new furniture and make her bedroom just right. I absolutely love her bedroom; it would have been a dream bedroom for me growing up. Isla is 7 tomorrow and what a perfect time to finish off her beautiful space.
I do love a challenge. Wayfair tasked me to transform a part of my home with an “into the woods” theme, ready for Christmas. It’s amazing how a small amount of items can completely transform a space. I decided to focus on the hallway and dining area as we will be hosting for a lot of guests this Christmas. Somewhere to hang coats has always been an issue and I do love a pretty dining table. I hope you enjoy the tour of my new hallway and dining area…
