You all helped me decide where to put my beautiful wall hanging and the majority vote was for the dining room. I think it’s safe to say it has found the perfect home! Check out my stories to get a closer look at the unique way I hung it! 🖤

Anyone else feel like they need a redo on this whole January thing? After the holidays we took a little baby moon and I ended up catching a bug that’s been lingering and making it hard to find any motivation. Finally taking photos of the backsplash for a new blog post this week though and can’t wait to get this pre-baby list started! #6weeksleft#backsplash#diy
Sunny but frrreeeezing outside today!!! In need of a hot cuppa joe, so I’m testing out one of the vintage butterfly mugs that will be in next weeks Instasale and I definitely give it the thumbs up 🦋👍🏻 I would show you my thumbs up, but way to cold to let this mug go just yet 🥶☕️

Weather is unpredictable in Kansas and this season has been particularly indecisive. After some brief moisture, we seemed to return to some higher temperatures, which has caused many to put off home winterizing tasks. With an icy January, many are regretting that now. 🙋♀️ But it’s not too late to perform some winter home maintenance. You can still protect your belongings from damage from the cold and ice this season. ❄

Three weeks into the new year - anyone still on an organizing kick? The studio is getting some updates this month, and we can’t help but feel like this linen and utility storage would allow for some beautifully stocked shelves!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As I’m sure you’d agree, your home is more than just the walls that define the space. It is where much of your story unfolds, it is where relationships are nurtured and emotions are experienced. It is a deeply personal space, a reflection of who you really are.
The design of that space has a profound impact on us. It has the capacity to excite, energize, and cheer. It often determines how we react to situations and behave overall. The vibe of a well-designed home can help us think better and lead a fuller life.
I would say that right there is reason enough to update the look of a room that hasn’t been updated since the last decade!
Today’s #trendytip is for a room that is your most personal space - the BEDROOM!
The trend - Brick accent walls!
Believe it or not, the kitchen is no longer the most focused part of the house. It’s the bedroom, the most personal space in the house, that is most thought about now. While accent walls behind beds are not new, a daisy-white exposed brick effect – either bare bricks or wallpapers – is becoming very popular.
Growing up I always tried to be just like my sister. I would steal and wear her clothes and listen to all of the music she loved.
Not only did I admire her, but I thought that by following in her footsteps I too could have many friends.
As an adult I realize that copying someone else is not how to stand out in the crowd, it’s about being original and unique.
I now have a lot of friends, but it’s because I am truly myself and only listen to music and wear clothes that resonate with me. Just be yourself and you will attract the right crowd 😊

Ever since I “finished” my kitchen I’ve been lying to you all. It’s not done - I powered through it and didn’t worry about the details. I’m still finishing up caulking and trim and I need to repaint the cabinets. I’m trying to not let little projects linger in 2020 and work on some of those final finishes.

Day 21 - My favourite
A rare picture of us -
Now I’m not gonna lie this could very easily of been a picture of the dog 😅 But this bloke really is my favourite (I’m also sure it should probably have been something home related but he does live in our home, so I’m sure it counts 🤣)❤️. He’s the only one that really tolerates my ways (or hides it well if he doesn’t) and lets me do whatever I like when it comes to home decor, even if I’m sure he questions a lot of my decisions and probably gets anxiety every time a paint delivery arrives 🤣🙌🏼 Love you @bannksy x
Well that went down well, huh? I'm still beyond grateful for all your comments and messages - I'm glad I did finally post our bathroom! So, thank you ❤ Seeing the side by sides of the before and after pictures has shocked even me and trust me in this, I lived for TOO LONG in the dust, dirt and noise of the reno so the shock shouldn't have been as hysterical as it was 😂 anyway, here's a few extra shots of the details for ya'll. I'm off to knot away in my loft for orders that are creeping up on me fast! @sophiesknots

Making those ceiling angles work for us with this perfectly snug study space 📝
It’s so cold! But everything looks really sparkly with a covering of ice 🥶 The chickens didn’t seem to care and were straight out in the garden this morning 🐓❤️ the dogs on the other hand looked less pleased 😅 All back indoors cosy on the sofa and I’m contemplating my projects for today 🙌🏼 Happy Tuesday x
Wood and wood-like composites are incredible exterior design accents. This beauty by @theluxedesigner is a perfect example. The rich wood grain on the garage and above the front door really stands out against the white brick and the black accents, giving the home both drama and warmth at the same time.

Ready to design your home exterior like a pro? Here are three tips:
1) Mix and match your siding profiles and colors—Using multiple siding styles and colors can add immediate curb appeal and depth to your home.
2) Use trim for more than function—Trim can be a stunning design element. If you have a light-colored siding, pair it with dark trim (or vice versa) for visual intrigue.
3) Don't forget about your front door—Your door ties everything together. Choose a bold front door that complements your siding and trim and makes your home look inviting.
You can test out all of these tips with our virtual design tool, HomePlay™. Pick your favorite siding colors, siding profiles, trim, doors, windows, roofing and more to bring your design ideas to life! Link in bio.
I’ve shown my Instagram ready wall in my office however the rest of it still isn’t done. I’m spending more and more actual time in here working from home so it’s time to get moving 🙌🏼 It has come a long way since move in though 👉🏼 scroll to see move in day 😳
Day 20 - Vintage
Oooooooh where do I begin! Probably my favourite subject! But what to choose to photograph as I have vintage things everywhere 🙈 I’ve taken about 12 pics of different things, but have decided on this one as she’s a bit of a beaut ❤️ I bagged her for £20 and I believe she’s a half dolly. I did a little research online and found this info courtesy of @thespruceofficial
Half dolls are just that! Generally the upper half of a human figure without legs. Half dolls were produced without legs so that they could be attached to something useful—very commonly, pincushions, but also whisk brooms, tea cozies, and numerous things that could grace a ladies dressing table, such as powder boxes. The vast majority of half dolls were produced between 1900 and the 1920s, although some were produced earlier than that and some later. Some half dolls are still reproduced today.
They say a good laugh and a long sleep are the cures for anything.. we say a beautiful bespoke headboard and custom pillows don’t hurt either!😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are no holidays on the horizon over here, so I’m pretending my kitchen is the South of France and that will have to do... for now... 😉 #underthefloralspell#ihavethisthingwithpink

The pool is interrupted by a “floating” entertainment area. It’s a place to relax with just the right amount of privacy from the low wall surrounding the property. Just beyond what we can see in this photo is an incredible ocean view.
