Having a very lazy Saturday morning today, first one without tutoring for as long as I can remember! Going to get out into the garden for a bit of a tidy up and finish a few jobs ahead of painting the decking and changing up the patio tiles once the summer holidays arrive!
I don’t think I’ve shared a before and after of this room yet, and the only photos I have are those from the listing so the angle isn’t spot on, but you get the gist... This room was a light grey before which wasn’t too bad at all, but I knew I wanted a white backdrop for my colourful furniture and plant pots to pop against 🌈
I’m thinking I’ll be brave tonight and share a picture of some of my artwork, who’s interested? 🎨

הבאתי היום מהמשתלה, מישהי יודעת כמה תאורה והשקייה זה צריך? #LSHhome

Happy weekend 😎 it’s a busy but fun one for me 🙌🏻 my weekend started with a surprise visit from my fave couple in the world to take me for a spin (sideways) in style 💯 today we are going to look at a rabbit to hopefully join our family 🐰followed by a bbq 🍗 with with my favourite dancing partner 👠 and tomorrow a lovely meal out with my sister from another mister 👩❤️👩... this is what what weekends are for!! Bring it on 😎🙌🏻🥳🥂🍴🌭💃
My beautiful 3D flower print is from the lovely @bloomdefluer it’s scented too so not only looks fabulous it smells delicious too 🥰 I have a discount code to use if you fancy treating yourself or someone else to a gorgeous 3D print xx
A few giggles with friends, good food & comforting ambiance are the things that are a part of my self care routine.
People always assume I’m an extrovert but funnily enough that’s not the case at all. I love people and I enjoy getting to know new people. But it has to be in a planned way. I can’t always do things on an ad hoc basis. I can’t see people every day of the week either as I find it draining. So for me, knowing I will see friends once or couple of times a week is more than enough to find my happy place. It gives me energy and a positive mindset. What about you? I’d love to know what gives your energy? What drains you out?
Styling Mrs. birla’s house was a total dream, and we’re super grateful to have had this opportunity to work with her directly! As a client, she was great to work with as she allowed to us to be both classic and experimental in our choices.
Not only were we challenged with pulling various looks together, but we were able to bring in some super fun and eclectic accessories in doing so! Styling is always more fun when you have the best clients and are able to create a space they can enjoy and grow into! Thank you for letting us style these beautiful spaces!

Morning , what’s everyone up to today?
Because we’ve been so busy with the kitchen I’ve now just had the chance to unpack our new mirror that arrived the other week for our bedroom.
You’ve no idea the amount of takes this took to get the right angle so you wouldn’t see all the crap in the background 🤦🏻♀️😂
Faux flowers are a minefield and it’s taken me such a long time to work out how to place them correctly (I’m probably still a long way off) but feel happy with this little display. I try and mix cheaper foliage with some a little more pricey. This vase contains eucalyptus from a mix of different shops, some from @coxandcox, @neptunecambridge and a few from @homesense_ukie (these look cheaper obviously, but are hidden well and just help fill the vase). The flowers are all from Neptune home
5ft @anthropologie gleaming primrose mirror pending 😎for this space... (due to arrive Monday)
I can’t get over how gorgeous this bouquet is from @hauteflorist 😍 a lovely surprise from my husband yesterday. I definitely need a bigger vase for them, but don’t they look lovely on the sideboard? I can’t wait for the lilies to bloom.
Popping to Ikea soon, so I’ll hopefully have a haul to share on my stories later 🛍 🛒
After a lovely week at ‘home home’ with my family, I’m now back ‘home’.
I know that’ll make perfect sense to all my fellow ‘I’m going out but not out out’ people.

Well happy Friday evening everyone. Film night at No.64 and the OH cooked - yeaaah😁👍🏾. Love this cozy corner of my living room. The african lady statue is from our trip to Morrocco and the african head statue was a gift from a dear friend from Kenya. The pomergranate candle is just divine from @aldiuk 😁
Happy Friday! Just a quick reminder to let you know that I’ll be on the @tamronhallshow on Monday! I will be giving two lucky viewers an outdoor makeover, that will have them Summer ready in no time! Check your local listing for showtime and channel. See you on Monday!

Hello, another rainy day hoping that sunnier days are coming soon! 😁. I love kitchen gadgets which is one the reasons I like spending time (alot of time lol) cooking in my kitchen as well as for my little catering business @mama_vees These @salter_cookshop salt and pepper mills are two of my favourite things! 😍
Very proud of this room in our house as previously it was a "man cave" - my son's old room! 🤣🙄. It is now a beautiful bright and cosy nursery/guest room for when my son his partner and my gorgeous grandson come to stay! Absolutely love the little personalised toy sack for my grandson from @kitty.makes ❤ @pimpupmypad@blackhomesuk

Still one of my favorite rooms 👌🏼Can NOT wait to start decorating again once we move in a few months. For now the endless trips to @homegoods will do 😏
So happy it’s Friday! I’m heading back up to the lake with a few girlfriends to hike, paddle board, and boat the weekend away! I had to share this beautiful rug that @ruggable sent me before I go! I’ve always wanted a really light rug in here for summer, but was always so nervous that it would get ruined from spills and my boys tracking in dirt. Well, worry no more because this beauty is spill and stain resistant....and WASHABLE!
Yes, you heard me right! A washable rug! And I couldn’t be happier! It is the softest rug, made of a soft chenille texture. It comes with rug pad that the cover velcro’s to. The other benefit is that I can swap out the covers to change things up! You all know how much I love changing up my rugs!
First meal out post-lockdown couldn’t have been more perfect! Massive thanks to the @ivychelsgarden for spoiling us! [invited]🍷🍸

I took this photo on one of my trips to the Dominican Republic. This picture has everything. A porch. A swing. And an amazing ocean view around the corner. What might make this even more perfect? What would you add to this vacation scene?
