Transform Your Windows From Drab To Divine With Custom Made Window Dressings From Make My Blinds

Following the completion of our extension Paul and I spent a great deal of time decorating, furnishing and adding the finishing touches to our beautiful new bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Having spent time living in numerous houses over the years I have slept in a range of bedrooms none of which have been comparable in terms of quality or size. Our new room is far bigger than any of our previous bedrooms and with the added en suite it feels as if we are living in luxury!

I’m not saying bigger is better but having the space to fit a king size bed, a dressing table, two sets of bedside drawers, a dresser and a large set of double wardrobes whilst still being able to stretch out feels great.…

Decorating In Hindsight

Thinking back to when we first moved into our ‘forever home’ there was so much that needed to be done in terms of DIY. We have been here almost five years now and whilst we have worked hard to modernise as much as possible there are still some spaces in need of a major update.

#LittleLoves – A Blast From The Past

#LivingArrows – Goodbye Bedroom

Last week Paul and I spent our last night in what has been ‘our bedroom’ for the past four and half years. Project ‘Extension’ is now complete and we are now happily settled into our ‘new room’ which is far larger and luxurious than we ever expected.

I thought I would use this weeks #LivingArrows post to share what is one of the last pictures of our bedroom before it became an empty vessel awaiting the transformation into a certain young mans bedroom.

As always at bedtime, here are our two little ones sharing a snuggle before settling down to sleep in their own beds which will also move into new rooms in the near future.…
