Hello there, what a scorcher 😎 Here are some pictures of the finished sitting room... we just need some furniture now!! Before, during and after shots if you swipe. Just a little background on the work done in this room:
We closed up the double doors into the kitchen to make it less of a walkway to the kitchen and more of a... I’m reluctant to say good room, but I suppose that’s what it feels like. I wanted somewhere the grown ups could go when the day is done and not to be surrounded by Lego and Lightening McQueen!
We took down coving, painstakingly chipped away at it and filled top of the wall and ceiling, then sanded it and it’s turned out great. We replaced the skirts, architraves and door into the room too. There’s a new pendant light and all new brushes chrome sockets and light switches. The fireplace was bought second hand and just the surround was replaced. And of course the gorgeous floors by @grimescarpenter are just smashing ☺️ I’m looking forward to filling the room over the next while, nice to have a room to furnish pretty much from scratch. #irishinteriors #irishhomes #sittingroom #fleetwoodprestige #neptunehome #marblefireplace #engineeredfloors #herringbonefloor #myhomestyle #myhomedecor #myhomevibe #homereno #far_side_of_the_lough
BAKING BOOKS 📚💕 This is the second baking book I absolutely adore and would recommend called @magnoliakitchen by Bernadette Gee. The author is based in New Zealand where she runs her own beautiful bakery of the same name. I am determined to get there some day. The aesthetics look amazing as well as the treats. 😍
Such an amazing day, I did very little except wait for the supermarket delivery, we are so blessed with this weather. I don’t think I ever truly enjoyed the garden as much.. I have so many plans running around in my head, starting next week we have some ground work being done with a JCB which will be clearing around the lake area taking up tree stumps and what would have been a former sand arena is being levelled. Its great to be making progress again! .

I hate this job but every year the gales move the rocks on to the grass so every year it has to be done. I should of used a string really to make sure it was straight but just couldn’t be arsed so fingers crossed it doesn’t mess with my OCD for straight lines! 🙈
What a beautiful day. Dare I say it’s almost too hot to go outside. Is that even possible I’ve spent the morning in the kitchen so it’s either garden or relax for the afternoon Which will it be 🤔. Hope you all have a fab weekend and that the sun is shining wherever you are x

ME, MY SHELF AND I
I love a bit of open shelving in the kitchen instead of wall cupboards, don’t you? It provides a great way to display ceramics, books and art or to have glasses or other everyday items to hand. I know that some are concerned about dust but a quick wipe every so often isn’t that difficult. Our kitchen shelves are positioned above eye level anyway, so out of sight, out of mind! 😜
If your planning on refreshing your home exterior this weekend, our 2020 brochure is full of great tips and colour suggestions. You can browse or download it from the link below.
Our Style Guide @cathymcgovern_carrowlane transformed dated canvases and prints she found in her shed into beautiful works of art with test pots and some hessian she had at home! 🎨
We think the results are amazing, will you give it a try?

🌿 Fist in mouth...those evil teeth! No morning nap so she is chilling here with me, learning the art of being laid back & chill from her big brother. What a day already! BBQ planning for this evening, sausages & chicken in marinade and once she decides to nap later I’ll make that potato salad (saved in my recipe highlights)
I live for my days off, and so grateful we have this weather to enjoy.
Have a lovely day x #charlotteanne#fifteenmonths .
I try and do this every few weeks & normally just take a photo but decided to do a little video for you to see the process of how I change it over. This kind of styling I really enjoy. Hope you enjoy the video ✨
A splash of colour this morning with this vintage carrigaline pottery. Alan's Nanny was on a bus tour of Ireland in the 1960's and bought this teaset in Cork. I often admired it and another teaset. One day while visiting, they were wrapped up and sent home with us... what a sweetie 🤗 She isn't with us anymore but she is all round our house 💗
A makeover .... The kitchen..
We spend all our time here , I'm sure you would love a new one etc , but why replace a good kitchen when you can do as my client did here with their kitchen.. I just want to show you how easy it is to open up your room.. We dont need lots of kitchen press units.. Just because they were put in 20 years ago , does not mean you must keep them.. This 20 year old solid wood kitchen was far to good to replace.. I asked our customer if they had thought of any changes etc to the kitchen they hadn't.
I suggested to the client to open up the wall space by removing just 2 wall units and the window pelmet. A window pelmet as small as it looks..blocks a lot of light...The result really was room changing.
Of course the beautiful re spray this kitchen received from Jason changed the entire look.
Our clients replaced the work top with a beautiful marble and by removing the unit that sat on top of the breakfast bar...you get to see the beautiful marble in all its colour .They replaced the floor with big porcelain slab tiles which add such space .
White walls .
Have a think..lots can be done with your existing kitchen with Jason from @jmc_respray.caroline_and_jason.
Colour is grey wolf from @colourtrendpaints
Love caroline ❤
We got up to all sorts in the house yesterday 🛠️
Installing under cabinet lights had been hovering on the to-do list for quite a while now, so we pick some up yesterday and got to work.
They look absolutely perfect all lit up at night and very happy with the turn out ❤️🏡
. (under cabinet lights were supposed to come with the house but apparently there was a "typo" in the brochure) 🙄
We are just delighted to have done them ourselves.
Step by step - getting sh*t done 💪
