For about a million years I’ve wanted to update the island in our kitchen. It was super boring, finished with just the cheap melamine end panels. It really needed some shwazzing up! This was really quick and easy to do, so here’s how we did it in my Simple Wood Panelling Tutorial. The first thingRead More
The wall behind our sofa has had a gallery wall on it for nearly as long as we’ve lived here. It’s been *alright*, the higgledly piggledy one that was going on until today, but I’ve got to a point where I need order. Rows. A sense of coherence. My husband says it’s my inner controlRead More

This summer we took a (very) short break to Robin Hoods Bay. It’s somewhere I’ve been before but didn’t really get a chance to explore. I thought it would be a nice place for us to go for a night away so I booked us into the Victoria Hotel. Mr R told me that whenRead More
House plants and I have a love hate relationship. I love them, but I think they may hate me. They keep dying! Despite this, they’re so good to have in the house so I keep persisting.

Following on from my posts on our Victorian hallway makeover (see HERE and HERE), we needed a new console table to put all our hallway crap on.
