Glam Living Room Scheme


I've recently created this e-design showcasing one of my favourite sofas from the latest Made.com collection. I adore this sofa. The perfect mix of modern and classic, the colour is stunning and there is a gorgeous stud detail along the bottom of it. It would fit really well into most modern interiors.

The Flynn sofa is only £699.99 and you get a choice of colours and at the moment they are delivering within 5 working days. Click to purchase

Again, its all about the chandelier and mirror in this! If your going to splurge anywhere in home decor, its the mirrors and light fittings that matter, they create the most wow factor.

The gold accents in the design offset the look perfectly and of course, never forget the candles and flowers!

How To Decorate With Quotes



I still love using quotes around the home. So long as it's not overdone, it can still be a really easy way to update a room. They look particularly effective when used on a gallery wall. 

All of the quote pictures featured can be purchased from Etsy and some are downloadable so can be printed on your computer, making it super quick and easy to update your room.

How To Paint Your Own Copper Vase











Image: Etsy

It doesn't look like the copper trend is going anywhere for a while. I can't get enough of copper accents in the home but it can get expensive.

So I went on the search for some diy ways of adding a few copper accessories.
I have a few unwanted home accessories around so decided I would try to paint them copper!

Finding the right copper colour wasn't easy though and I went through a few spray paints until I found the right one,

I ended up with the Rustoleum "Bright Copper" spray paint.

I chose spray paint for this as I wanted a smooth shiny finish.


Here's how to get your own copper vase...

1. Make sure the item you're spraying is clean and free from debris. Also, it's important to make sure the paint you're using is suitable for the surface you are spraying onto.

2. Use masking tape (I've used frog tape as it creates a perfect line) and wrap around the glass as evenly as possible. This is easier than you would think.

3. Wrap all the way to the top. The spray paint travels much further than you think. I didn't use enough cardboard underneath and ended up spraying half of my patio, oops!






4. Shake the hell out of the can! Really shake it, for longer than you'd think. At least a minute. Spray lightly and about 30-40cm away from the vase.

5. Spray in light side to side strokes and spray very light coats and wait in between each coat. I did about 3 coats and waited an hour between each.

6. Wait until the paint is fully dry, remove the masking tape, et voila!


Your own copper vase, this also works really well on jars and tealight holders and lots of other home accessories. You could go copper crazy.

How to create a polka dot wall






I've recently been preparing the nursery ready for the little one and thought it would be a great opportunity to try something I've been wanting to try for a while.

I've been loving the polka dot wall trend and thought behind the cot would be the perfect place to try it.

I didn't fancy spending hours drawing out the circles and painting so I found these amazing stickers from Muse Signs at Etsy UK



They came on seperate pages and were 3 inches wide.
Really easy to remove and to place on the wall.

I got a bit sticker crazy and just started placing them all over the wall. I ended up having to reposition them and as the paint was relatively new, some of the paint came up. Ordinarily if the paints been on for a while I don't think the stickers should lift it up.

After a bit of repainting and positioning I was quite happy with them and wondering where else I could do a polka dot wall!

If I were to do it again I would definitely pencil where I wanted to place them to avoid having to move them.

Heres the end product...



There's some great inspiration across the web for positioning and colour ideas. There are some amazing coloured stickers that would suit lots of different areas in your home.

The stickers are a reasonable price and quick to put up, a great little project.
Click to purchase

Here's some of my favourites...



Perfect for behind the desk and I love the multicoloured stickers.



A great use of the gold again.



I love the placement of these stickers in the hallway, lovely!

Glamorous Storage Ideas



If you're anything like me, you hate clutter and love to find new ways to stylishly store your nick nacks.
Here are a few things I've come across lately that I love. 

Why hide away your lovely makeup, these glamorous acrylic storage cases add some style to your bedroom or bathroom and look good almost anywhere. 

I found some in TK Maxx recently but there are plenty online to choose from.


This one is stunning. I love the old candle jars up cycled as brush holders.

There are a few handmade ones on Etsy at the moment that are usually under £20 

Would you love your own dressing room?

I love the way this has been created, and so easy. Shelves have been installed at different levels next to the wardrobe. 

Accessorise it with your favourite shoes and handbags. So effective but still reasonable. 



If you still have plenty of shoes left over (don't we all) these shoe cupboard from ikea are fantastic. These can also be purchased online for around £100. 

They are available in the Hemnes range in black or white.



I'm currently in love with these baskets from Etsy. Can be ordered here

Really stylish and practical. They don't break the bank either. They look amazing grouped up on shelves, stacked in cupboards or placed on top of cupboard and have lots of room in them. 

These are priced under £20

Stylish storage and kids...




It's sometimes hard to find stylish storage ideas for kids. This book holder would be prefect for my little boys room. Available on Etsy. Priced at £185 it is definitely an investment. If you're handy at DIY I'm sure some,thing similar could be made. 

This is just the right height for the kids to easily help themselves and displays a lot of books at once to remind them. 

I love the colour too. 



You can't do a post about storage without at least giving a mention to the Expedit range from Ikea!

I love this use of the shelving unit, what a great idea to add the lettering to the from of the boxes. 

These are just a few of the lovely storage ideas I've seen lately, but I'm always looking for inspiration.
Have you found any great storage uses lately?
