Typically the weather changed as soon as the Easter holidays started 🙄🙄. Yesterday morning I woke at around 6am to what looked like an all out hurricane outside and was so sure the 10mile race we were going to would be cancelled. It wasn't and I'm so glad as it actually felt great to get out and run a race after so long of a break. I hadn't ran one since last summer when I think I was about 24 weeks pregnant so it was more of a wobble than a race 😂🤰! I think today will involve pottering around the house for the day, I'm wrecked after the weekend! . . . . . . . . . . . #instahome #instakitchen  #kitchendesign #kitchenisland #kitchensofinstagram #shakerstyle #shakerkitchen #darkinteriors #modernfarmhouse  #interior4u #designblog #selfbuildireland #selfbuild #irishhomes #irishinteriors #kitchenisland #myhouseandhome #myhomevibe #myhomestyle #interior123 #interiormilk #interior125 #neutraldecor #mykitchen #myhomestyle #myinterior #inmydomaine #countryhouse #modernfarmhousestyle #ahousebythetrees

DAY 9. ‘The warm wind blows’ if you love a bit of monochrome, @storyofmyhome @myhousethismonth Who is with me on this one???? 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 . . A re-post of a pic taken during the summer for me today but it’s one of my favourite shots so I think it deserves two appearances on the grid! It’s the spare room and I love how simple and monochromatic (word of the day!) it is. . . . What’s not to love about a bit of monochrome, stripes and simplicity. I love the simplicity of a monochromatic room. They feel calm and relaxing and in order for me. Not that I’m overly OCD but I think my deepest inner OCDness loves a bit of monochrome! . . The start of a whole new week today and I’ve loads of plans for my days off, all house related as per usual 🙈🙈 I am a total bore at the minute as everything in my live seems to be house related but the count down to Australia at Christmas has certainly begun! Just over three months to go and I cannot wait!! @__itslucy__ @jonpaulclark @littlehouseinlondon . .

For anyone that needs some courage to change up their decor, take a look at the before and after shots of our livingroom. The only structural augmentation we undertook was removing the dividing wall between the front and back livingroom. We used #farrowandball #hagueblue and #pinkground to transform the colour of the room and with some serious faffing and styling up, our new livingroom was born! #treasureseeker #herringbonefloor #myhousebeautiful #myconsideredhome #mybohoabode #walltowallstyle #styleitdark #stopandstaredecor #mycreativeinterior #myeclectichome #myinteriorvibe #myinteriormydecor #myhomeforhp #myhomesense #myhometrend #mygorgeousgaff #decoracioninteriores #pimpupmypad #interiordecorating #victorianrenovation #myrenovatedreality #beforeandafterhomeedition #getmydecornoticed #houseandhome #realhomes #realinstahomes @real_homes @designattractor @apartmenttherapy @amaraibas

#gift 💙 The Nursery 💙 He's here!! I am so excited to finally be able to share the finished nursery with you! I collaborated with @mamasandpapas in the creation of this space, which has a Highland theme emerging. I teamed the stunning Oxford cotbed (#gift) in grey with @fleetwood_paints Hamptons Deep on our panelled feature wall, contrasting this with Meribel across the other three walls. The animal heads came all the way across the Atlantic from @_heartfeltcreations_ via Etsy. The final touch were the curtains with blue pom pom trim made by @materialworldfabrics. More details will be shared in stories and added to my highlights over the coming weeks. But for now, I'm off to enjoy some newborn snuggles. - - - - - #nurserydecoration #newborn #nurseryinspiration #nurserydecor #nurserygoals #nurseryinteriors #nurserydesign #babyboy #boynursery #boysbedroomdecor #babyboynursery #panelledwalls #diypanelling #mamasandpapas #cotbed #babysroom #babybedroom #boynurserydecor #nurseryinspo #nurserygoals #nurseryreveal #childrensbedrooms #kidsbedroom #childrensroominspo #kidsbedroominspiration #boysbedroom

We have visitors over this evening which has meant a bit of faffing around at the whitethorns with the whitethorns. So many rules broken gathering these. Took off down a small road with my 2 year old on my knees thinking he was driving the car and the sharpest knife on the passengers seat. It all got a bit real when my 2 year old shouted out of the car “be careful mummy” as I balanced on one foot over a stream trying to cut them down. All in the name of whitethorns ,they smell so lovely and the memories from my youth of collecting for bonfire night came flooding back , so all worth it. Anyone else go to extremes to make things look nice? 🤔 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishinteriors #interiors4you #instahomedesign #interiors2you #dailydecordetail #sorealhomes #myhouseandhome #irishhomes #interiorstylists #interiorstylingideas #housebythewhitethorns #myinteriorvibe #smallspacestyle #bathroomvanity #bathroomstyling #wainscotting #stylemyspace #salledebains #interior124 #interior12follow #beautifulirishinteriors #neptunehome #irishcountryliving #irishcountryhouse #countryhousestyle #towelrail

Two things my dream house would contain: a bigger more user friendly kitchen, would definitely be the biggest priority. The second would be a large master bedroom en suite, preferably with a walk-in wardrobe and ample storage. Plus enough space to fit a super king size bed! At 6ft 3” Mr R is a tall man and so a super king might help to eliminate me having an arm flail in to my face in the middle of the night, or be kicked by his lanky legs. Let’s just say he suffers with the odd sleep twitch. 🤦🏼‍♀️ So until that dream house magically appears, this ‘fit for a king’ #storyofmyhome day 16, bed will have to do. Seeing as it’s Fathers Day today though, it’s all about celebrating all the amazing Dad’s out there. Both my own Dad of course and Mr R, who as I type has selflessly given up his Sunday lie-in to take the kids off to see the steam train running along the Dublin coast today. Swipe to see the best Dad’s in the business. 💗💗 Have a wonderful Sunday Insta treasures, after a day of two parties yesterday, it’s going to need plenty of tea to get me up and at them!! #retwigged #stylishhomevibes #walltowallstyle #gallerywallhashtag #gallerywall #interiorinspiration #myeclectichomemix #stylishbedroom #apartmenttherapy #mycolourfulinterior #mycolourfulhome #greathomestaketime #myhouseandhome #sorealhomes #ikeaatmine #myhappyhomedecor #dailydecordetail #howivintage #myinteriorvibe #mygorgeousgaff #gallerywallgoals @anglianhome @sophierobinsoninteriors #anglianstyledbyme

Sometimes I think I’m too honest for my own good ☺️ When Anna @feather_and_faff_interiors asked us for cleaning tips, I fessed up and admitted to the best cleaning tip ever ... I get professional cleaners in from time to time. Right ... a few years back, I was working flat out - weekends included. I’d spotted a cleaning van visiting several of our neighbours. So I nabbed them one day and asked if they could take me on. I wasn’t really interested in a weekly service ... more of a periodic deep clean. So they come every couple of months or so. They bring their own gear which is better and more powerful than mine. The floors look so good after they finish. Their cleaning cloths are colour coded - kitchen,bathrooms and other. And as for my most dreaded job - the glass walk-in shower ... I don’t know how they do it, but it looks like it’s just out of the show room. They are bloomin’ brilliant. I’ve more available time these days. But have I given up this little luxury ??? What do you think 😉

I'm sometimes asked to describe my interior style and I'd say its modern rustic especially in the kitchen with a dash of boho in other rooms 🧡 . . I've lived in very modern homes but in our cottage I'm drawn to more rustic interiors with recycled or salvaged furniture. We've done most of the work ourselves because with four children any spare cash was spent on them and not the house but we've loved every minute 😏😂 Not! Ah most of it anyway 😉 . . So here is one of my favourite rustic photos of my kitchen 😉 Enjoy your day everyone 🧡 . . . . . #myinterior #apartmenttherapy #myhyggehome #anthropologiehome #urbanplantbloggers #autumnal #fall2019 #autumnalcolours #pocketofmyhome #cornerofmyhome #interiorinspirations #interiors4alle #interior_magasinet #interiordeluxe #modernrustic #thejungalow #jungalowstyle #originmagazine #timeouthomes #gypsytribex #bohotribex #bohemiandecor #bohemianinteriors #interior4inspo #interiør123 #mykitchen #kitchendecor #kitcheninteriors #interiorwarrior
