Happy Monday Instas I'm very late to the game today with my post I've been busy installing architrave with Mr B the joys of doing diy and I've been undercoating the woodwork in our hallway baby steps with the hallway revamp but we are getting there. Had a really gorgeous fun filled day yesterday in @kildarevillage I was kindly invited along by @kirstiemcdermott @houseandhomemagazine and #kildarevillage for Dining and Decor Event in the Apartment omg and what an event they put on we had the most delectable fine dining experience in the most beautiful setting the table settings were just exquisite and I met some lovely interior instagrammers yesterday some I had met before and some for the 1st time and it was really really nice to meet in person as we are all normally behind our cameras. We were also gifted with a beautiful gift bag full of gorgeous things which I added to my stories earlier and a gift card and we also received extra discount for shopping which was so generous of @kildarevillage I had a lovely shopping experience despite the snowfall and I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday. I like to thank again @kirstiemcdermott @aoifevalentine and the team of @houseandhomemagazine for putting on such a spectacular event and to the team and retailers of @kildarevillage for going above and beyond for us all and for a fantastic day I wished every Sunday was like this thanks again 💖💖👌👌😁 #houseandhomemagazine##stylishhomevibes##kildarevillage##shoppingexperience##interiorlovers##gifted##gallerywall##mygorgeousgaff##interiorsonabudget##myhousethismonth##sahstylists##howistyle##walltowallstyle##howyouhome##greathomestaketime##mycreativeinterior##colourmyhome##myiteriormydecor##eclecticdecor##artforyourhome##artforyourwalls##dailydecordetail##makeahouseahome##nesttoimpress##homestyle##interiorsnapshot##abmlifeiscolourful##springdecor##myseasonalrevamp#

I upcycled an upcycle! I wasn’t happy with the previous incarnation so I decided to make it a little more Gatsbyish. I’ve all the progress on my DIY highlights and the previous versions are here if you swipe ⏩. ‘Work In Progress’ @houseandhomemagazine I’m going with my golden touches for ‘Mellow Yellow’ @myhousethismonth and how these golden years of primary school are flying by too quickly. My three return today and I can’t believe where the time is going 😢 ‘Slowly Slowly’ this room is coming together (if I could only get rid of the big ass sofa without hubby noticing 😏) #upcycledfurniture #retrohauls #reducereuserecycle #artdecofurniture #artdecodesign #artdecoring #geopattern #gatsbyesque #artfullyhomes #gatsbyvibes #greathomestaketime #artfullyhomes #myhomevibes #irishdiyers #irishhomes #irishinteriors #myhouseandhome #myhousethismonth #storyofmyhome #revamprestylereveal #myseasonalrevamp #interiorsquareshare #interiorrebellion #myecohappyvibe #spotlightonmyhome #myinteriorstyletoday #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #myvintagehome #myvintagevibe #diyhomedecor

The happiest wallpaper in all the land by @eleanorbowmer. I was trying to figure out for a while what to do in this space. It’s a little nook that’s not really visible. I was searching for a mad pattern wallpaper, and it took me a while. The minute I saw this I was like that’s it! It’s happy, bright and beautiful. I’m sure 99% of the paper will be in nursery’s but I’d put it anywhere in my house to be honest. I picked up a soft pink in the rainbow to paint the hot press door it’s @tikkurila_ireland from @carlowpainthub the paint was gifted to me to see if I like it and I’m 100% loving it (I’m the hardest person to please paint wise so that’s saying a lot) it’s in the shade Pirtelo and the skirting and other doors are in the shade Arctic Fox. swipe to see the before and this is where I start something and can’t figure out what I want to be doing. But it all comes together in the end. #myhouseandhome #colourpop #creators.ie #mygorgeousgaff #irishdiyers #mycreativeinterior #paintedfurniture #prettypastels #livecolorfully #abmhappylife #colourmyeveryday #irishdiyers #ilovecolour #popofcolour #colourcrush #pocketofmyhome #pastellove #createeveryday #designsponge #decorcrushing

I'm so excited... My room makeover is finally out. Swipe to see the before 👉🏼 I had so much fun creating this space thanks to @crownpaintsireland and @houseandhomemagazine It was literally the most boring, unused space and now I've my very own plant room. It's like my little pink escape. And Matilda loves it too. And anyone who's been asking where I moved my locker from my hallway... Here it is in all it's glory, loving life. Huge thanks for the super talented @plpix for the shots and Penny Crawford for the styling. And of course big thanks to @kirstiemcdermott @houseandhomemagazine and @crownpaintsireland for giving me this opportunity.

Do you prefer daytime and light filled? Or candlelight and cosy? Going in for the detail or a wider angle? Having taken a gazillion shots this afternoon in the den/office, I was all ‘Sixes and Sevens’ day 8 #storyofmyhome trying to decide which one of them to post, so I’m showing all types! 😁 Please tell me I’m not the only one who struggles to whittle down the pics they take! 🤦🏼‍♀️ I collected some gorgeous seed heads and thistles on my walk this morning. My chair/tray here is fast becoming like a nature table. I always loved collecting bits for the school nature table when I was a kid at this time of the year. Not much changes. 😁🍁 I’ve been making some subtle Autumn colour changes in here too, inspired by the mood board I made at the @stillorgandecor @designersguild Workshop. Just loving this throw from @sostrenegrene 🧡 Happy Tuesday evening lovelies 🧡💛🌾 #retwigged #myhomestyle #walltowallstyle #lovehomedecor #myhomevibe #spotlightonmyhome #pocketofmyhome #myeclecticshack #thiscreativehome #hyggelife #rusticdecor #howivintage #myhyggehome #makehomematter #dailydecordetail #nestandthrive #cornerofmyhome #scrollstoppinghome

How’s the week going so far peeps? I’m still recovering from this endless cold but have managed to have a really lovely day today JUST HANGING out with hubby who’s off work. He treated me to an amazing little lie in this morning, went to the library and got to enjoy some very entertaining storytelling there, followed by a nice lunch. (Well almost, if only smallie hadn’t screamed like a lunatic and refused to eat her fish.🙄) #myhouseandhome PS. This week’s competition for a €100 paint voucher is now up on the @crownpaintsireland page so do make sure to enter by Sunday! Yours truly gets to pick this week’s winner. 👏💞😉 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #myeclecticshack #crownstyleguides #fireplace #koti #livingroom #interiors #interiorstyling #interiormilk #givemeallthecolor🌈 #gifted #art #wallart #irishart #prints #colourmyhome #mycolourfulinterior #bohohome #scandiboho #pinkinmygaff #crashbangcolour #walltowallstyle #storyofmyhome #scrollstoppinghomes #artfullyhomes #myhousethismonth #vintage #howivintage #apartmenttherapy
