  1. Have just moved in to your home and it’s not quite feeling like ‘home’ yet, or simply just feeling a bit ‘meh’ about your home and wanting to give it a refresh and cosy it up a bit.


    Here are 5 simple things you can do…

    1. Add some wall art

    Hang some pictures on the wall.  A mixture between art you like and family photos will give you a warm feeling each time you pass by it.




    2. Add some plants

    Adding some plants makes such a difference to any room.  Plants have been proved to be a huge benefit for our wellbeing such as air purification and their calming vibes.  The pop of colour they give also give any empty corner a purpose.  Don’t forget to dust their leaves otherwise the layer of dust can prevent the photosynthesis process.

    3. Add texture

    Adding textures and layers gives that cosy feeling.  Adding a throw or more cushions makes you want to snuggle up.  Textures such as adding baskets are not also practical for organisation but also look great.

    4. Fresh flowers

    Flowers give not only that vibrant pop of colour, but also their scent.  When considering colour psychology, yellow flowers make a room feel bright and cheery, whereas more greens give a calming vibe.

    5. Lighting

    Lighting is so important to get the right vibe, particularly during the months where it gets dark early.  Corner lamps create a cosy mood, and string lights or battery candles really help add to the hygge vibe.  Consider dimmer lights to the main room light source to be able to control the brightness.

  2. Spring has to be my favourite time of year, and more so than ever this year.  Seeing nature reawakening is so precious and bringing the bright fresh pops of Spring colours inside the home is a must!

    Hearing the birds tweeting as I write this just makes me feel that little bit happier and hopeful about the future.

    It's definitely the little things in life that we have learnt to appreciate over the past year or so.

    One of my favourite times of the week is mealtimes.  It's a fantastic way to achieve that quality time together as a family, valuable downtime from devices and a chance to connect.

    A way to make that time even more special is with tablescapes.

    Traditionally tablescapes have been for Christmas time, but they are becoming more popular throughout the rest of the year too.

    Here’s a few of my favourite tablescapes you might like to take inspiration from this Easter and Spring time. 

     1.  This one features different shades of pink which is just beautiful and feminine.  Teamed with fresh white linen gives a crisp fresh look.

     2. Tea Party!

    Invite some friends around and hope for a sunny afternoon in the garden!  Take the best china outside and treat yourselves to afternoon tea and a good catch up. Some flowers dotted around the table will make a beautiful display.

    3. I think my all time favourite has to be this one!  It is so well put together looking so easily done.  The little pops of blue amongst the green is beautiful.
