HOW A NEW SOFA BROUGHT LIFE INTO OUR CORNER SPACE

May 10, 2017
IMG_7584

I have been wanting a new sofa for our kitchen/lounge area, ever since we renovated and moved into our house back in February 2016. But the sofa we moved in with from our previous property, was such an easy option at first. Not to mention it was in a neutral dark grey (which perfectly matched our otherwise, neutral and grey colour palette), and the size was was the perfect fit for our corner space. So I left it. God knows I had enough on my plate, with the biggest renovation and decoration project to date! And then I kind of got used to it, as nothing was technically wrong with it. But after a while it just didn’t feel so fresh any longer, and the darker shade of grey, made the otherwise light and airy space much darker then it needed to be… So I decided to (finally) make a change. Click through for the transformation!

12 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR BEDROOM MORE SLEEP-FRIENDLY

August 17, 2016

Sleep is something I always took for granted – something which was easy, non-eventful, a daily occurrence which I never thought much about. That was until it started to become an issue; with sporadic spurts of insomnia, interrupted and broken nights, always a struggle to fall asleep, night sweats… Suddenly, that easy and carefree ritual, become a real-life struggle for me.

A SUNDAY LUNCH DATE

May 15, 2016
sundaylunch-4

Anyone who really knows me, will agree that I love to entertain. A lot. Nothing more makes me more excited than preparing a lunch or dinner party, gathering my loved ones and feeding them (yes, I´m a massive feeder too). I am no perfect host by any means, there are times when I totally flap and get stressed, wanting everything to be perfect (did I mention that I am perfectionist too?). But as soon as the party arrives, I crack open a bottle of wine, relax and enjoy the company and food… What life is all about, right?

WHY I LOVE SUNDAY’S

March 20, 2016

Sunday’s are just so good. And I love it because it´s totally OK to stay in my pyjamas until lunch time (right!?), I have time to catch up on my reading, bake batches of healthy muffins, set new plans and goals for the week ahead, go for a long afternoon walk, and ending the day with a long soak in the bath and pamper session. What more do you want?

Happy Sunday! It´s probably one of my favourite days of the week (most likely because it´s considered OK to stay in your pyjamas all day… Or is that just me?!). Sunday is the ultimate day of relaxing, re-charging for a new week ahead, going for long walks (not in my pyjamas), and pampering.  Continue Reading
