How to make a rented house feel like a home

If you’ve been reading along for a while you might know we moved into our own rented flat in February 2016. If you’ve ever lived in a rented place you’ll know how difficult it can be to really make it feel like your own space. Both Lee and I have previously rented mouldy student digs,  so we were both excited to move into a flat that was in a much better condition. Plus, we’ve been really lucky that our landlord has allowed us to paint the flat to help freshen it up. This really helped up make our rented place…

D.I.Y DRAWERS WITH GRAHAM AND BROWN

At the end of last year, Graham Brown got in contact asking if I’d be interested in taking part in an upcycling project. Luckily enough I did have a set of drawers in our bedroom that I’d been meaning to upcycle for a while, so this felt like the perfect blog collaboration. The team at Graham Brown were kind enough to send me materials of my choosing to help with the project. All of the materials I needed came just under £50  – proving that you don’t need to spend a lot to take something from pre-loved to re-loved. The…

HOME UPDATES WITH POUNDSTRETCHERS

It has almost been two years now since Lee and myself moved into our little two bedroom flat and we are slowly improving the decor and really putting our stamp on the place. So when Poundstretcher got in contact asking if I’d like to choose some items, I jumped at the chance to buy some homeware. I’ve previously written about our book-nook area of the living room when we first moved into the flat. This is one area of the flat that has been re-arranged a billion times. But I am finally really happy with the way it is now…

Yorkshire Linen Co: How to Refresh Your Bedroom on a Budget

As you may know, we recently changed our bedroom around a little. Our flat has two bedrooms and we previously had the larger one as our bedroom and the smaller as our office. But having house/cat sat for a neighbour a while ago I saw how she had the smaller room as her bedroom, and it looked super cosy. So we decided to have a move around and create a cosy peaceful little room to sleep. We kept the wardrobes in the larger room,  as I used to do my hair and makeup in the office anyway, so it just…

Interiors: Introducing The Book Nook

As I mentioned in my little ‘Life Update’ post last week, I’ve recently moved into a new flat with my boyfriend. Over the past month, we have slowly been trying to get the flat as homely as possible. Slowly adding little touches here and there, I must admit we still have a lot of work to do, however, there are a few areas of the flat that are already coming together quite nicely. There is no doubt about it, our little book nook is my all time favourite part of the flat. This little cove is based at the back…
