It’s been a hot minute since I shared my hallway for a #transformationtuesday but here it is again anyway!
It’s become one of my favourite areas of the house since it’s “makeover” and with charity shops hopefully opening soon I should be able to get some frames to add to the gallery wall 🤞🏼 Have a terrific Tuesday everyone ☀️
Hi all . Late post today but it was my birthday yesterday so I’ve kind of been recovering today .
May was .. pretty much like April actually ... full of house faffing and planning what to decorate next . .
Today’s highlight was a visit to Ikea and the purchase of a new duvet cover set .
I would have stayed longer but got really freaked out by all the people who completely ignored social distancing once they were in the store . .
Like seriously did they forget about covid or is a £5 fejka faux plant such a must have that you’ll risk infection or infecting someone .
I had to leave before I felt compelled to call someone a f**k**** i***t!
Anyway let’s see what excitement this month holds and how many more government officials are going to have been found visiting Barnard Castle, sleeping with people from another household , or visiting their holiday homes in Fife . .
Todays pic is of my aechmea fasciata.plant and my kitchen light . I quite liked the angle . .
On another note I really need a garden sofa set so hit me up if you have any recommendations
I’d like my squares to be more active so I’m going to be taking part in both @myhousethismonth and @mygardenthismonth!
We’ve been super busy in the garden and the hall, stairs and landing is nearly finished so hopefully I’ll have something to post! 💖
Helooo June! ✨
I’ve had such a productive start to the day! Cleaned almost the whole house top to bottom minus the bedrooms which one little person is currently sleeping in so I’ll have to give that a miss until later on! Another really beautiful day !
Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! And here’s to a good month! ✨
How quick did May go?! I'm sharing 4 of my favourites from the last month. Being at my mums I've really struggled to post everyday. So I didn't have a great deal to choose from. Hoping to be home this month!
AD | GIFTED • S T A Y A T H O M E with @miltonandking •
TA-DAAA!!! Wallpaper in the lounge is up guys! Squeeeeee!! This wallpaper is cleverly named, 'Overgrown' and has happily taken over in our lounge and 'overgrown' in my heart. It exudes so much joy into this space. I am S M I T T E N!! Honestly, if you opened me up. I'd have @kittymccall wallpaper inside in all different places. I believe this pattern though would honestly be wrapped around my heart. A Kitty McCall heart pumping all those beautiful colours out she creates. 🤩 The quality papers and design are just pure happiness I can officially say! I honestly don't have the words to describe to you all how beautiful it is. Especially in person. It has been my, "staying at home renovation project" I've been working on for the past few weeks in collaboration with @miltonandking and kindly gifted. I even have a wee video of the installation. Would you like to see? Swipe >>> for a before and after if you fancy? Stay at home, 'overgrown' roots and all gray hairs are models own by the way. 🙈 😜 Lots of hard work, late nights and hours went into this room behind the scenes to help prep for the wallpaper to be hung. Having 2 under 3 we simply had less hours in the day is all. Speaking of prep work. I literally scraped by hand all my old pink painted walls with a razor blade scraper. Which was satisfyingly time consuming. But, perhaps I had a cold one or two as 'friends' to help? Those are the best friends on any stay at home project I say! Also, all new paint on the door and all the woodwork. An entire new door casing with beautiful brass door handles. Sanding, filling, sanding, filling, sanding, fil... you get the idea. 🙈 New sockets in places there were no sockets. Installed of coarse by my friendly neighborhood electrician and handy house doctor, @jbeckelectrical who I couldn't have achieved this colourful space without. 😘 Still some more projects to be finished so this room is complete including sanding and painting the celing. Tell me... What do you think? 💐💐 #gifted
Oh flowers how I love you but why do you hate me?
My hayfever made me feel so ill yesterday. I don’t know which kind of pollen I’m allergic to, but I’ve just googled it and apparently grass pollen is unusually high at the moment 😫
Hope you had a lovely weekend.
Flatlay Day - @mymonthincolour
Just like that it’s Monday! Not that it feels like Monday, or any particular day at the moment! .
I have been notified that I will be remaining on furlough till the end of June, so I am going to make the most of the time off with some more jobs around the house & some sunshine ( if it stays that is) .
Ryan put up my competition with from @artithology & it really gives this room a pop of colour 🌿 although I now want the whole chimney breast full of it because I love it so much! I washed the bedding & it looked all crisp so I had to document it! Still one of my fave rooms ever ( and this was done at the beginning of lockdown) 💫🖤🌿 .
Hope everyone has a lovely day!
PS - if you haven’t entered my giveaway with @londonhouseplants that’s live on my grid yet - head over it’s open till Friday! 🤞🏼 .
Happy 1st of June!! Hello to all the lovely new followers too, I really appreciate the support and kindness from this lovely insta community. 🖤🤍 I have a snagging list as long as my arm to finish BEFORE I start the last room. That’s the deal. Apparently 🤷🏻♀️😆
For now though I’m just going to stare at the new shower curtain from @rockettstgeorge.co.uk 😍
Have an amazing day everyone 🖤

Good morning folks, hope you’re all well & had a lovely weekend.
So to the May round up;
I posted my first ever outdoor pic, my first ever pics of the cottage & the first pic of me appeared on the grid. Thank you so much for the love on those, I’m completely blown away & it truly means a lot.
I’m also blown away to have welcomed so many more of you to my page, thank you so much for joining me. I can’t wait to get to know you & love that so many of you joined in with my Beautiful Sheep fun! 😂🙌 😘💕💕 Stay tuned for the winner!
I’m pleased to report that in May there were no more unsolicited dick pics, but @heneddyhouse very kindly freestyled me my very own gansta rap & I joined in @jpslifeandloves trend of putting flowers down your toilet. I loaded up my grid with a fair dose of pink (to sing you a rainbow) & I gave you all a good F-ing!! (My frugally, foraged, floral display) 😂
- SING A RAINBOW -
Red and yellow and pink and GREEN 🟢 decided to play along with @storyofmyhome this month, today’s prompt of sing a rainbow was originally going to be my oh so colourful spare room but there’s only so many times you can take a picture of a single wall. -
Anyway here is my offering our lovely green circle that Finn can take the credit for and if you swipe you will get to see some very satisfying time lapse videos. I’m now thinking we should have painted this a more teal colour to mirror the curtains of the room but I think if I suggest this to Finn he may have strong views about having to paint over his masterpiece. .
Bring the sunshine in! Fireplace styling with these beautiful sunflowers and some cow parsley!🌻 🐮 .
Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend basking in the sun!
Last @myhousethismonth post of May! Day 31 - Sunshine state of mind ☀️ .
Yesterday I spent all afternoon in the sunshine in my garden with my best friend drinking cocktails & loving life it was so nice ( socially distanced of course) Today I am cleaning the house top to bottom! Exciting ey, I’m half way through so going to spend a hour in the sunshine topping up my tan I caught yesterday before Ryan gets home later! .
Anyway im blabbing, another hallway shot but with 2 new added items! One being our brand new anthracite column radiator from @traderadiators that was kindly gifted to us! Honestly it’s transformed this space no end ( can you be in love with a radiator? ( see picture of the hallway 1 week ago) still a little bit of touching up to do but it’s nearly done, I’m pretty happy with it for a solo for lockdown project!
Also I’ve finally hung my new print from @iamfy look how perfect it looks here against the pink & with the new radiator which was kindly gifted my @iamfy#iamfy
All the spots in this house - especially with our new arrival coming in 4 weeks 💙🐶 .

As some of you MAY be aware, I am bit of a crrative and craft queen.
I have been making beautiful things for a long time including felt flower arrangements, crochet garlands, macrame and other pretty thing.
These are very popular this time of year and I wanted to share them with you all.
Just some before and afters of some plant pots I decorated because who wants boring pots? Not me. Totally inspired by a pot I saw on @ourlayeredhome stories. It was done by one of her followers and I can't remember which account it was but I'm glad Tara shared it because it was beautiful and inspired me to do these
@myhousethismonth prompt for today is - Tile it ✌🏼 How could I not share my newly tiled bathroom!
I love the metro tiles from @tonsoftiles against the wallpaper! 💖
I’m off outside the front door today ( I have to
pop to the post office, get a few bits and drop a hanging basket off for my grandads birthday 🖤
I finished ‘Normal People’ last night it was SO GOOD!
Hope everyone has a lovely day! 💗

I've got my grout
I want the world to know
Got to let it show
I‘ve got my grout…
The time has come for me
To break out of the shell
I have to shout
That I’ve got my grout... Thanks to Saint Diana of Ross for quickly writing that little ditty about my new hallway. Any other ‘grout bangers’ you can think of will be included in a mix tape, ode to the floor. Now: That’s What I Call Grout. Happy Sunday, instabelles 💋
