Living Room Makeover

Living Room Makeover

    The living room used to be my least favourite room in the house. I’m not sure why but it just never felt welcoming or homely, and I hated sitting in there. I think I’ve only sat in it a handful of times since getting the keys in January 2019. The fireplace was the part I disliked the most, it was just so orange (see estate agent pictures above) and I didn’t like the black tiles. So basically there wasn’t much I did like about the room and I needed to change everything. I started on Pinterest (obviously, where...

I can sometimes forget the name of the brand and I can then go back to the cards to find the business again. I have a few tips on what...

Master Bedroom Makeover

When we moved into our house in January 2019 we knew we needed to decorate, and we wanted to start from the top of the house and work down. Our house is set over 3 floors with the master bedroom at the top. The bedroom is amazing (even if it does have a gold feature wall) and is very spacious. It even comes with a huge walk in wardrobe and of course, my little office. But it also had a little corridor as you entered the room caused by this weird box, that always made me curious. I wanted to...

How It All Began

So I haven’t always designed beautiful personalised prints, in fact my day job was quite the opposite. I originally worked as a nurse on a busy surgical unit up until a few months ago. So why the change? Let me take you back to the beginning… After I qualified, I went straight into full time work with two babies, both under 2. To say it was hard was an understatement. Mum guilt soon kicked in and I missed first steps, first words, birthdays and Christmas. I needed to be at home more with them and so after a year I...
