What a beautiful, lazy, hazy sunny day.
I don’t know about you but I was totally clueless that it was even Friday! This was a pleasant suprise! .
I haven’t made it to stories today as I’ve been doing nothing, nothing the whole day long. Just soaking up some of that much needed vitamin D. .
The Yarden is really starting to come together and the bright wall and accessories are giving me all the summer holiday vibes. Thought you might like this arty shot, that disguises the fact I am in a yard in Manchester! Ha .
There’s so much about this picture I love, whether it’s a collection of cushions and throw to make the average Homesense store jealous. .
The beautiful artwork I have collected and curated to represent previous moments in my life. (This particular one I purchased when overjoyed to find out we were pregnant after a previous miscarriage) .
Or the peonies, Mother Nature doing her finest. Which I have placed rather artfully in shot. .
I rather agree with Madonna circa Blonde ambition tour, More is more!!! .
Everything is opening up here and I have mixed emotions. .My friend went to Homesense yesterday. It was their first day opening since we went essential service and it was total chaos. .
And although the staff had masks and every other cash was closed. They also had someone at the door monitor the amount going in, there were still customers that were not practicing social distancing. My friend said it was a strange and uncomfortable situation for her. .
I’m not sure what to think? I definitely know I’d feel the same as my friend and although I’m missing shopping therapy I don’t think I’d feel comfortable in this environment. . . Today I pick up my masks from @_vaultedvintage and that my first step. Everybody has a different level of personal safety but I still think social distancing and washing hands are still critical so I will be very diligent with that for my own peace of mind. .
How about you? Are you a mask wearer? #socialdistancing#brightboldhome#mixerofstyle#ddstyle#colorfulcasa#apartmenttherapy#colortherapy#mymonthincolour#colorlovedecor # #artfullyhomes#givemeallthecolor 🌈
Morning campers. Three sunny bank hols in a row.... who’d have thought it?! .
We shall just be taking it easy today, literally spent a large proportion of last night thinking about worms! I need to get me some. With all the current cookies I imagine my sponsored ads will be full of worms and soil rather than cushions and throws. On things for sure, whether it be a a fancy wallpaper, throw or a trip to the garden centre it’s all about the floral love right now. .
On Saturdays we....... don’t do very much!
How have we reached cocktail o clock already? Minus 5 calls with my Nan, (who has dementia so they have all been pretty much the same), and a 30 minute attempt at decluttering and organising a wardrobe room that’s more out of control than Amy Winehouses hair in 2008. (God rest her soul) I don’t know where my day has gone. .
Meanwhile Mr Productive, my other and some would say better half, has extended the cot, and built the garden sleepers. .
Perhaps I need to be kind to myself and accept that without me nursing, and entertaining a pretty clingy 21 week nothing would have happened in this house. .
Right I’m off to do my 6th outfit change of the day. Wondering if this one will survive the next 45 mins before bedtime without falling victim to a vom?! .
The pic is of a corner of my home that I like to keep colourful. Desperately seeking plates, Any suggestions please tag below!
It’s all I think about, I dread it every day....... .
I can’t get enough, I admire anyone who can. A wish of mine would be for 3 hours in a row.... .
And essentially every day after 12 pm that’s all I’m gearing up for all day. Yes you guessed it sleep. If these four walls could speak they’d tell you of the nightly loving battle of two parents to try and get their bundle of joy to take the sleep he needs to thrive and grow. They’d tell you of them then bickering about different techniques, supporting each other and celebrating success (silently I might add) .
I’ll keep dreaming. To be honest I am a bit tired of this wallpaper, but not sure what next. Maybe something dark? How soon is too soon to change? We’ve had this one for 8 years now. What do you think? .
We’ve built quite a few custom media cabinets over the years, but this one from a whole house remodel we did for an Oklahoma City Thunder player has been extremely popular. It has been saved thousands of times on Pinterest and Houzz. ⠀
A fun story about this photo is that on the day of the photo shoot I decided I wanted to try a few shots with the television turned on. It was no surprise really, that the TV station was already set to ESPN but, the coincidence came in the show that was on. It was a documentary about another Thunder player, Steven Adams. I paused the show and this was the shot. It sure made for a pretty photograph, don’t you agree 🙋🏼♀️⠀
My husband Mike and I have spent an entire day just sitting and staring at our piece of art.
No activity, no conversation.
Just him and I, proud as punch. Well, maybe a few words.
Me: Do you love it?💞
True love. .
Make do and mend #mymonthincolor
Hey, it’s faffy faffer here after a little break from the socials. Spot the differences! We’ve changed the light fitting from chrome to this one, brought our garden cushions inside & framed my collection of Oh So Kel art prints (the big abstract canvas is now in the cloakroom!)...moving things around & faffing at home brings me so much joy, sad I know 😂 Anyone else in the faffy faffer camp?
BAGGY, OVERSIZED, LOOSE, SAGGY, MOM OR BOYFRIEND JEANS-CALL THEM WHAT YOU WILL...THEY ARE JUST SO COMFORTABLE TO WEAR... #throwbackthursday#tbt to wearing my most comfortable jeans.
Oversized jeans-the ‘90s-inspired style, have definitely made a comeback and have stepped back into the limelight over the last few years.
Not only are loose jeans comfortable, but are also quite chic when styled with the right accoutrements-they’re just great to dress up or down.
Day 11 of @mymonthincolour - Working from home!
Both Jon and I work at the dining table downstairs most of the time but now and again, if we both have calls at the same time, one of us comes up to this desk in the bedroom!
And inevitably, Harry follows 😂
Happy Independence Day, you beautiful people you! Break out your mixed tapes, crack open that Boone’s farm Strawberry Hill, tie your boyfriend’s flannel around your waist and celebrate like it the 90’s... Hanging with my highschool crew this holiday and it brings back allllllllllll the memories. I’m also gonna ditch my cell phone for a few days (cause it’s the 90’s and it doesn’t even exist...duh). So have fun! Be safe! Make good choices! Call your mom! ❤️💙 •
