Day 1& 2 #kitchencorner @houseandhomemagazine I love clear worktops the kettle is the only appliance that has a permanent home here. If it weren't for the steam it would live in the pantry with it's other stainless steel friends. I pick the pretty pages of cook books to display and actually find any recipe I need online. I still buy them though it's lovely to flick through a cook book and say I'd bake that now if I had the ingredients 😉. I'm enjoying a coffee in the breeze, the sun is beaming in the windows and the Boss is napping. Blissful moments of calm in an otherwise adventure packed day chasing a 'busy' chap! #myhouseandhome #kitchendesign #shakercabinets #farrowandball #overmantle #range #coffeebreak #myhouse #mystyle #kitchenisland #selfbuild #interiors #myhomesquares #myinsta

Happy Sunday! What a difference it makes not having wine on a Saturday night! Yesterday consisted of a mammoth 14km walk around Belfast, a quick stop for lunch @barkingdbelfast and then an evening spent baking banana bread...not my usual weekend but I’m loving the chilled out vibes. Also I thought I would share another before and after of our living-room, as I’ve been feeling creative this weekend and have decided to revamp the bathroom. I will share some images in the next couple of weeks, in the meantime swipe to see some before images of our lounge #livingroominspo #livingroomdesign #beforeandafterrenovation #mycolourfulhome #mycolourfulinterior #myboldhues #herringbonefloor #highceilings #myeclectichome #myeclecticmix #mybohoabode #bohoismyjam #myhyggehome #myplantaesthetic #darkwalls #styleitdark #darkinteriors #sassyhomestyle #interiorinfluence19 #interiormilk #stopandstaredecor #walltowallstyle #deliciousdarkdecor #greathomestaketime #storyofmyhome #myrenovatedreality #myrenostory #victorianhouse #homeinspo4you #colourmyhome

Day 14 “Walkin’ on sunshine” @myhousethismonth “Statement” @storyofmyhome Today was intended to be a ‘post free’ day but after the grey skies yesterday this sun drenched shot of our kitchen is almost therapeutic. I took advantage of this glorious sunny evening last week when all my men (big and small) were out in the garden to get a few ‘stock’ photos but I found it quite boring 😆 I definitely have a preference for the ‘prompt inspired’ shots or the close up, quirky compositions but for the “Visual Vitamin D Statement” I’m posting this one (minus flowers and Lego 🙈 shocking) Here’s hoping we haven’t seen the last of the sun for this summer, although I’m feeling the ‘Back to School’ vibes and can’t believe how quickly the past few weeks have gone. We’re off to get a very eager 6 year old his school tie and jumper today, this is a BIG deal, the poor child has had 2 years of wearing his school tracksuit when all he wants to wear are suits 😂 He asked his granny for some red and green V-neck jumpers for Christmas last year so he could play ‘dress up’ for different schools 😍and he cannot wait to own a pair of shiny black shoes 🙈 So even if the sun doesn’t shine today I know one little man who will be ‘walking on sunshine’ ☀️Happey Tuesday everybody x

I’m loving the added pop of yellow to the understairs doors store in the downstairs loo. While I love the slate grey subway tiles, it could feel a little gloomy in this space as the window faces east onto a narrow side entrance. The yellow pop now adds a bit of sunshine and I love it so much I even painted the plant pot to match 💛 using the @butleranddunne @twofussyblokes rollers of course!

#myhouseandhome Day 21 ‘Guilty pleasures’ I have many but the most relevant today is buying cushions and throws and then more throws, but sure we need them and always use them anyway . Love the way they change the whole look in a room #storyofmyhome Day 21 ‘never ending story ‘ it’s a never ending story of me buying cushions n throws but I did well with these as they were used outside too on the patio so for once they were appreciated . Just had to add isn’t this dam weather a never ending story all summer long 🙄🙄🙄🙄 #myhousethismonth Day 21 ‘patterns or plain’ I think I’m very plain ( obviously not my looks ) with a bit of added patterns , I only had the garden with patterns so I suppose I’m plain and sometimes break out of my plainness

I unveiled a commissioned piece for a client yesterday and her reaction was just beautiful. As an artist, it's such an honour when someone chooses your work. It makes what you do such a joy. Day 17 #photochallenge @houseandhomemagazine 'Irish Made' this piece is of Dublin, looking from Seapoint across to Howth, I could lose myself in that view forever! 'Scrubs Up Well' @myhousethismonth this bedroom does not always look like this, my ironing skills are not the stuff of a hotelier's wet dream, but this corner of the house does respond to a little bit of an instafaff every now and again!

Day 7: Manic Monday . . . . . . Guess what’s driving me bonkers in this room? . I job share ... which I feel very fortunate to be able to do. Having being ‘off’ [24/7/365] on maternity leave for almost nine months I went back to work at the beginning of September. I’m still finding my feet as a lot has changed, quickly. I now work from either Wednesday or Thursday on. Monday’s aren’t so manic anymore @myhousethismonth @__itslucy__ @littlehouseinlondon @jonpaulclark . . . . #interiorrebellion #retrohauls #nestandthrive #mybrightDIY #myeclecticshack #irishdiyers #myhousejournal #decorstylefiles #52weeksofgray #myinteriorsquares #irishdiyers #sharing_creatives #dailyhomeshare #mystoryfilledhome #walltowallstyle #howivintage #greathomestaketime #cornersofmyhome #styledupinterior #mycuratedvibe #pocketofmyhome #mycolourfulinterior #heyhomehey #myeclecticmix #myvintageabode #myeclectichome #pretty_small_spaces
