No place like home

I am attempting a scheduled post today, as I'm off in The Big Smoke (London) attending a couple of events. Keep up with any goss on my Twitter!

I wanted to show you some photos from a lovely feature in the brand new issue of Cellardoor magazine of blogger/crafter Claire Donovan's fricking delightful home. Minty painted walls, adorable bunting and fresh flowers... It's all I dream my own home might look like some day in the future.





This recent snapshot of my trashed side of the bed implies I have a long, long way to go... 


I've pencilled in a thorough stalk through Claire's blog when I have some free time, as it looks right up my street!

Thank you Cellardoor, for being a truly lovely magazine and for providing the homespiration I desperately need to lift me out of my lifelong rut of being a slut. I am of course referring to the dictionary definition

  1. That's so lovely!! Sadly I think my boyfriend is going to require something more gender-neutral. Otherwise it would be gingham and bunting everywhere, haha.

  2. We're actually buying that bed in the second to last picture! I'm going to make some of that bunting you tipped us off with last week too and it'll be the perfect bedroom :) xx

  6. Oooh these photos are wonderful! I'd love to have an imaculate house, but I fear the exponentially increasing pile of clothes in the bedroom says otherwise.
    I'm a new follower and thoroughly enjoying your blog!

  11. Have fun in London! :D.
    I love these photos! There are so many different styles of decor I like though! I'm going to end up having a million different houses each with a different style at this rate! Haha!

  13. Ooooh, that house looks so dreamy! I can't wait to live in my home so I can paint everything and stick things to the walls without fear of the landlord chucking me out haha!

  14. I had spotted this feature on their blog too, I always get so inspired by photos of other people's beautiful and well kept homes and tidy up my own...lasts about a day and the floor is covered again.

  15. Thank you for this post!! My home is not immaculate lol the wide angled pic of my bedroom - the mess was scooped to the edges of the wall where I was standing! I also live in a rental property and the guy was desperate to shift it, said we would only move in if we could decorate cuz the Walls were initially a horrible shade of yellow.. Everywhere! So everything is now White cream and shades of blue ^_^ xo

  16. Ahhh I cant wait to own my own place Gem, so I can make it look pretty like this :) You know from my last post how much renting sucks at times. Think the boys would let us away with heart shaped pillows and bunting in the bedroom?... I wish! :) x

  18. Wow! I never knew that's what being a slut meant.

    I guess that makes me a slut too :(
