SHOW HOME 📷 .
A few photographs of a similar semi-detached property on the same site as ours. I absolutely loved the show home. It was fresh and stylish with a hint of colour. In the photographs you will see the kitchen, garden, sunroom and dining area at the bottom of the kitchen.
Our kitchen is a slightly different design with an additional larder instead of being purely L shaped. Completely different colour scheme also but I really was blown away with the standard of the kitchen especially in a turn key new build! For some reason I just expected the choices to be limited but actually it was the complete opposite. .
The garden is a great size as we have dogs so will need a little place for them to roam alongside a lovely patio for garden furniture and a shed 🤞 luckily a south facing garden for the sun on these beautiful summer days
The curtains, wall paper and cushions are bespoke from our interior department ✅
Everything else from the side board to nest of tables, pictures to lamps are all available to purchase in store!

Next on the list was a sofa for the sunroom. My favourite room in the house. When we visited the show home I was so surprised that it was an addition to the house. Marks parents have original chesterfield sofas in the traditional oxblood leather and I have always admired them. I tried to search for a similar design but always seemed to find leather fabric in dark colours. I came across the website @myfurniturecom and found this sofa which I think is the perfect combination of the original chesterfield design with a modern twist. The material is so soft! .
I spoke with the team at my furniture and organised a video call as I couldn’t decided what colour would look best. They couldn’t have been any more helpful. Sending photos, texts & videos until I made a decision. We picked taupe but I also have popped the grey style and some of the lighter shades in my stories as I know grey is a very popular colour at the minute!! .
I was so pleased with the sofa when it arrived, just can’t wait to get it out of the box now! .
Bedroom😁 - swipe to see during and before
So the first part of the house we wanted to tackle was our bedroom as it made sense as this is where we will be sleeping😂 it's obviously still a work in progress with lots of little touch ups to do and obviously get everything into it! But we are so so pleased with how much we have brightened up the room and made it look a lot more spacious with using the brightest white we could find!
Husband is a star ⭐ He went for a walk with the dog and came back with a #mojito from #gowdysatdownroyal 😍 a good book, sun and a cocktail ☀️ bliss! Need something to distract me from my constant sneezing and sniffling. 🤧 I hate hayfever! #growoutofitmyarse

The Luca has a bold and dominant personality thanks to its strong architectural aesthetic with pure lines, substantial arms and a deep, low seating position. Presented in Flair Charcoal, this is a luxuriously appointed fabric available in five colourways
Well here are my bay tree babies that I finally got planted. I am in love! Already know how I'll dress them for Christmas! Forgive me for saying that word so early but I'm a Christmas freak and my summer holiday is cancelled so at this point, I'm all in!! What a day in NI today, absolutely stunning! ☀️ So a water fight and a walk after work and school work was just what was needed!
I don’t know about you but I’m really struggling this week. It’s been a long old drag - the only advantage being that I woke up this morning thinking that it was Wednesday and realised that it was Thursday instead 🙌🏻 The weather however has been amazing ☀️ I hope that you get a chance to enjoy it wherever you are x

I have woken up super early today 😩 think I will be needing a nap today haha 🙊 but it makes it all a little easier when I can admire our back garden grass with the sun beaming on it 🥰 •
Over Winter our two fur messers escaped into our garden while we were at work and completely kicked up all our grass and some of the soil. It was ruined and baldy in lots of places but it’s definitely getting back to normal 👏🏼😍

Okay - so. This is my own kitchen, in my own home. Looks simple, but I spent a good 9+ months designing this before there was even a hole dug in the ground to make sure it had everything I wanted.
Initially, I really loved the idea of a super contemporary kitchen with dark cabinetry and bold statement worktops. But alas - my house Is a Georgian-style, red brick, sash windows kinda house so that was not going to work!!! So - I went with a semi-traditional style but altered some of the usual components with more contemporary options. I chose a dark graphite, flat matte shaker style door with a narrow stile, and the ever popular Silestone Lagoon worktops but in 20mm thickness to keep it light & contemporary.
For the sink, I opted for something a bit different than your usual stainless steel or belfast sink... I opted for the matching Silestone Integrity sink (again in Lagoon) which joins almost seamlessly with the worktops keeping the look fresh and modern.
Oh.... and it wouldn’t have been complete without a boily tap!! #homesweethome#northernirelandhomes#newbuild#kitchendesign#kitchensireland#kitchensofinstagram#interiorsnorthernireland#interiordesign#traditional#contemporary#silestone#silestonelagoon#silestonebycosentino#intergrity#silestoneintegrity#quooker#quookerflex

Flooring choices 🤗
Swipe➡️ first pic is the one we chose.
It was such a stunning day today, so we kicked back and soaked up the rays until early evening ☀️. We have had some full on days recently and it was lovely to relax and go over the plans.
A trip up to the house to look at the flooring samples in a different light and we finally made a decision 🎉 chuffed, as I think it will work for all the rooms on the top floor especially in the hall against the feature staircase wall.
Picked some light fittings for the staircase and hall, I’m hoping to see them in the flesh before I make the final decision. They look fabulous online but final decisions to made when the shops open 🤗
Don’t know about you but I’m chomping at the bit to get out and start shopping for home interiors 🛍
Hope your all enjoying this amazing weather we are truly blessed 💕
We can finally do a Transformation Tuesday 🎉. This is the living part of the kitchen. I’d seen two gorgeous old style French consoles, but they didn’t quite fit. After a lot of Pinterest searching we decided to build them in and make bookcases either side of the fireplace.
There was a lot, an awful lot, of measuring to make sure the shelving was spaced properly and was symmetrical.
Our TV will be going into the larger space on the left hand unit- it will be on a bracket that has an extending arm. This means we can pull it out and tilt to watch, then fold it away.
There’s a lot of styling to do here, but we really love how this has turned out.
It's Thursday!!! Otherwise known to some, as Thirsty Thursday! Tonight I am having a zoom catch up with the girls and I cannot wait. Drinks are chilling and nibbles (obvs) are waiting to be poured (honey roasted nuts, just incase you were wondering). Just need to get the house in order and the boys ready for bed first. Don't forget to clap at 8pm!
