The New Life

Gardening tools, plants and leaf blower vacs.

Yes, I have my own high-stud white-walled dressing room. Yes I should be the envy of all women. No, I don't have time for trying on outfits (and I have no curtains). Haven't had time since moving into the house over two months ago.

My life is all about hedges and leaves. Lots of leaves...

But! I do intend to post some house pictures soon. Well, of the bits I am happy to show at this stage. Our new Roman blinds arrived yesterday and will be installed next week. Goodbye sheets hanging off the windows! Our internal plantation shutters are being installed on Friday (we have to wait until January for the dressing room shutters).

Coffee Table

We bit the bullet and bought the marble-topped coffee table from Indie Home Collective. It looks perfect with our new sofas. Photos to come, but here is the photo from the Indie blog:

Peeping Out From Under the Covers

What a busy few months it has been.

I am hoping to start blogging again on a regular basis so apologies for the radio silence recently. Truth is, it's taking some time to settle into the new house. A very emotional time too. We are still waiting on furniture, and blinds and shutters are on order, not due for at least another month. Currently we have old sheets and quilts nailed up over the many huge windows in this house. Not making us feel at home really.

I have managed to start setting up the much-envied dressing room (now home office/dressing room) so will post progress pictures soon. Don't want to let you all down!

We're concentrating our efforts in the gardens which have - after three months of no one living here - gone a bit feral to say the least. Making slow progress but still, progress nonetheless.

As for shopping and outfits? Well, I have nothing much to report on that front. There are plenty of lovely things out there right now but all time and budget is being directed into the house! So, the blog might take a housey/interiors turn for a while.

Thanks for waiting and reading. x

Apologies for the silence. It's been an extremely stressful few weeks. We've been in the new house just over three weeks and it's very strange. So, I'm lying low as I try to get through what has turned out to be a very unpleasant experience. Hopefully, things will improve. Right now, I'm just going to focus on getting settled into some kind of normality.

Coffee Table Cool

So we are only a few days from moving into our new house. Our sofas are on order, as are all of our appliances and some outdoor furniture too. Our main living space is open plan and bright white. We've decided to go for more of a mid-century/Scandi look for the house in general. We're looking for a new coffee table (our current one will go into what will be the library/sitting room). Here are the front-runners for the new coffee table...
