I was recently challenged by Matalan Direct to style two rooms with one of their rugs. We’ve recently been adding plenty more texture into our home, so couldn’t wait to see what they had to offer. Their Metropole Rug really stood out to me, as not only would it fit with the decor in any room of my house. But, I loved the simplicity design. Made from 100% wool, it’s a good sturdy rug and I had to see what it’d look like in our living room before settling it in our hallway.
I’ve seriously slacked with my pregnancy updates. After scrolling through my recent posts and realising that my last pregnancy post was over 12 weeks ago.. I just had to get writing an update before our little one arrives and I forget everything I wanted to share in the excitement of her arrival!
We’ve been looking for the perfect blind for our kitchen window for quite some time. We couldn’t make up our minds whether we should opt for a Roman or Roller blind. It definitely needed to be a blind, but I couldn’t envision which; never mind the colour choices we’d have to pick from. We recently painted our kitchen from the original magnolia to an off-cream. I love how in some lights it looks white and towards the cupboards, you can see the cream hue really show.
My pregnancy is just whizzing by and I’m now starting to panic that we don’t have everything bought or decorated. Don’t get me wrong we’ve done a lot of decorating in our house these last few weeks. But, I’m quickly heading into my last trimester and I’d love to hurry up and get our nursery finished so there’s somewhere to store all our baby’s ever-growing belongings. Her clothes are currently folded up in bags upon bags around the room. I’ve been collecting lots of pretty things to decorate the space with too.
With each week making the arrival of our little one that much closer, we’ve been in full swing in making our house more like a home. I wanted to share a few useful tips on how we’ve been making our home ready for family life, as well as catering for the dogs – they’re family too of course!
