Style up a guest room

Interior Styling | Guest Room STYLE UP A GUEST ROOM Guest rooms are fun to style as you don’t need to be practical; you can finally use that gorgeous stool you’ve always wanted to use as a bedside table; that cushion with a burst of colour; that lamp that never quite finds the right home… however I do recommend that you use good quality bedding as this can make or break the look. This small bedroom has only room for a double bed, a side table, and a shelving

Its a small world

Some of us aren’t blessed with a home with large bedrooms, in fact most of the homes I frequent have dedicated that extra space to living areas leaving the bedrooms a modest size quite adequate for what they intended… a bed. And so often here we are trying to cram all manner of equipment into them and wonder why our sleep is less than enjoyable. After being asked to help with this tweens room after she took it

Bedside Beauty

the perfect bedside BEDSIDE BEAUTY I am searching for the perfect bedside table. Though it cant just be a table can it – we need to store things – important things like face creams. My client brief is simple; it needs to white and it needs to be different from a normal bedside. So I’ve narrowed it down. I wonder if Goldilocks had trouble with the bedsides during her foray into the little house in the woods? Anyway these are my pickings to date…

Beside the Bed

‘He who likes to save money’ got a little surprise when he ducked out to do a spot of Christmas shopping this weekend.  Returning with his sale bargains he found a distinct change of scenery next to his pillow!

If you have a teen boy you will understand this post!  Sometime around that 15th birthday your gorgeous boy moves out and a goat moves in!  Seriously, I don’t want to scare you but you have to know what is in store for you. 1) he eats and eats and eats… all those worries you had when he was little about his eating habits are gone, gone, gone.  Now your only worry is making sure you have enough food in the house! 2) he smells…

Sleepyhead
