I wouldn't mind hopping back in here right now 🤪 I'm sore from painting this week and digging foundations to lay a path into the new shed 💪 . I'm also trying to bring our lawn back to life after I poisened and killed it 😭 Totally by accident of course and it looks like I set fire to it 🔥 I fed it two weeks ago and it was lush and green so I don't know why I bothered 🙈 but whatever I put on it killed the whole lawn 😲 It said "Lawn Feed" on the box, but kills weeds too......LIES!!!!!! ☹️ So I put a layer of topsoil down and I'll plant grass seed today as September is the last month of the year I can attempt to grow grass so fingers crossed it'll come back or I'm suing Miracle Gro for a new lawn 😂 Have a great day everyone xx . . . .

Morning everyone 🖐 I hope you're all good 🧡 I shared this photo less than a year ago and although everyone loved the moodiness of the photo there were a few who hated it 😂 and that's ok. It is pretty dark and as you all know my bedroom is far from dark. I took this photograph on a dreary, rainy winters day and I shared it because it looked like this could be anywhere in the world and not in a little Irish cottage 😂 It's been shared many times and recently it was shared by another account and I read a comment underneath by someone saying they hated it, it's dark and dreary, they could never sleep in a room like this and it probably smells of incense 🤣🤣 . . I don't just share photos of my home to inspire but some of my photos are moody where the light and composition combined with the subject create an image that generates an emotional response from the viewer and it certainly got a response from this person 😂 I try to capture a mood or invoke a state of contemplation with some of the photos I've shared in the past but I haven't shared photos like this in a while. Having said that coming into winter my mood might change again so watch out 😂 . . . . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #bohemianinteriors #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #bohostyle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #thejungalow #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #bedroominterior #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Throwback to when I had plants on the shelf over the cooker 🌱🌿 As you might guess that's NOT a good place for plants,🙄 and the heat will shrivel them up but it looked good for the photo 😁 They're now on the window sill and thriving 🙌 This shelf now houses all my spices which I love to buy in the Asian markets in town. . . We tiled the kitchen ourselves two years ago and fitted three wall presses which I was reluctant to do as I didnt want anything cluttering the walls because the kitchen is small but I caved as I needed more storage space 😮 The coffee machine is sadly gone as it broke after about 20 uses so that was a bumner 😭 . . I just want to mention the post yesterday about painting my blind. The blind is blackout so has a plastic membrane on the back to block out light so when painted the paint doesn't seep through which I'll go through when I'm sharing how I did it on my stories. Just so you know 👍 Have a great day everyone 💚 . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #kitchendesign #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

It was around this time last year and mid August when I first shared this photo and it was shared dozens of times afterwards by other accounts. There are many ways to grow an account but sometimes all it takes is a photo that resonates with people like this one did. I had 5k followers at the time and although it's never been my goal to have a big account part of the reason my account grew was because of this image. . . We're travelling down to the south of Ireland today to drop my sister and nephew down to my parents and its a beautiful day for a drive 🌝🌝 I hope the sun is shining wherever you are today x . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #kitchendesign #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

I put this hat stand in my bedroom recently and one night I woke up and thought it was someone in the room and started screaming 🙈 Of course I don't remember any of this and my husband kindly reminded me the next day 🙄 and suggested I put it back outside in the hall 😮 So I'm thinking having a hat stand in the room probably isn't a great idea when I wake mid dream to see this shadow in the corner 🙈 . . It's a mixed bag weather wise in Ireland right now with torrential rain one minute and a mini heat wave the next 😫 But I don't care as I'm taking my gang for dinner to our local village the hide from the rain 😁 Have a great day everyone 💛 . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #bedroominspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #mybedroom #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Morning everyone 🖐 It's a beautiful day here in Dublin and I plan to do absolutely nothing today!!! 😂 Ah I'd love if that were true but I promised my husband we'd take a break from the garden until next week so it's more tidying the end of the garden ready for re-roofing the old shed next week👍 I went out last night and I had to wear a jumpsuit to cover my arms and legs because I'm still covered in bruises 🙈 So no digging or heavy lifting for me today 😉 . . Just to remind everyone that the closing day for the giveaway of this beautiful woollen blanket/throw from @foxfordwoollenmills is tomorrow and the giveaway is open internationally 🙌🙌 So get tagging and have a wonderful weekend everyone 💛 . . . . .

We finished the third section of the garden this week and I'm sore all over and covered in bruises 😭 I dont even have a long sleeved top to cover my black and blue arms in the gym. 🙈 People might think someone is beating me up 😮 I shared some photos on my stories and when we take the panels down that separates the decking from the new area I'll share those photos here 😍 . . Moving earth from one area to another to lay paving slabs was tough and so was digging out another area for decorative stones. We had to do it sections as we couldn't leave any soil exposed because our husky would go to town on it 🙈 . . So this summer we've made a canopy for over the decking (which we made last year ), cleared a 3mtr x 3mtr area and laid slabs. Made raised beds around the new paved area, made a scaffold board table and cleared an area of the garden to put down stones for a bbq area all while painting the hall and my bedroom 🤪 Our next job is to clad and roof the old shed which should be fun 😳 😂 Have a great day everyone 💛 . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #mykitchen #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

We started the raised beds in the garden yesterday and we probably should have spent the day enjoying the sun but with our unpredictable weather we'll do as much as we can, when we can 🙌🙌 I put some progress photos on my stories and we hope to add another raised bed during the week. I'll put some more plant's and shrubs into the one we made yesterday and I want to grow herbs and veggies in the next one 🌱🌿 Enjoy your day everyone 💛 . . . . . . .

I've been asked about the garden over the last few days and about the layout, materials and costs etc We had an idea in our minds what we needed to do and what we'd like to do but more importantly what we could afford. . . We took measurements and drew up some sketches of the areas we wanted to change and then priced all the materials for that job. We priced everthing online and drove to different hardware stores to check out all the materials we needed. When the prices was a little out of our budget we'd cut the size of the area we wanted to renovate like the decking was meant to be a few feet bigger and so was the slabbed/paved area. As we did all the work ourselves there was no labour cost and it just took longer because we'd never made a decking area before and it's over 20 years since we laid slabs. We still have alot of work to do and today we're clearing an area for our diy bbq 🙌 No rest for the wicked 😂 Have a great day everyone 💚 . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #outdoorspaces #gardenstyle #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #outdoorliving #gardenlifestyle #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

"The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw the clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you simply for being you. The once in a lifetime people" - Unknown. . . Surround yourself with people who make you happy, people who make you laugh and genuinely care about you. I'm lucky to have had people in my life that have always supported me even though I was surrounded by negative people. I was almost drawn to these positive people without even realising it because I was comfortable in their company and I married one of these people. 😍 . . . I've learned not to take people's opinion of me to heart. After all it's just their opinion and it doesn't make it true. I avoid conflict and think before I speak and avoid gossip. I've learned that when I feel overwhelmed, to do things that make me feel calm like getting fresh air, meditating, seeing a friend, eating well or even going to bed earlier. Its important to look after our mental health as well as our physical health. We tend to absorb the actions of those we spend a lot of time with so choose who you hang out with or connect with on social media. When you're surrounded by good people, you're surrounded by life and you'll be less stressed and find happiness in daily things. Today make a commitment to start spending more time with the good people in your life.💚 . . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #bedroominspo #bohemianstyle #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #thejungalow #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #jungalowstyle #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

I'll give you all a break from my garden progress photos today with my kitchen 😂 I took this photo before I painted the dresser green which love 💚 . I was asked recently when my obsession with interiors started and I have to admit it's not my obsession and it's one of a few hobbies I enjoy. If anything I was obsessed with baking and cooking for years and would spend any free time I had baking and shopping for ingredients for a recipe in one of my many cook books. I remember when my girls were smaller I'd come home from work and I'd spend ages in the kitchen cooking a meal from scratch and then I'd bake for hours. I was either baking, cooking or painting something and I'd be going till 10.30 at night. Looking back I dont know where I got the energy especially with four kids 🙈 😂 . . Another hobbie is sketching and painting in water colours which I've always found therapeutic. I also love photography as did my husband and we both have over a dozen cameras between us, new and vintage. I played badminton for years and I loved gardening too but gave up both when I broke my shoulder. I joined a gym too which I love and i joined to strengthen my shoulder and also my back. I broke five vertebrae in my cervical spine in a fall so certain exercises strengthen the muscles around that area and I feel less pain now thankfully. Another little hobbie is caring for my plant babies 🌿🌱🌿 So now you know 😉 What are your hobbies? . . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #mykitchen #kitchendesign #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #scandihome #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

We went out for dinner last night courtesy of my two eldest daughters and the food was amazing ❤ I ordered a chocolate dome for dessert and when the waiter brought it to the table he poured the chocolate sauce over it quicker then I could say get in my belly and walked off! 😳 So by the time I picked up my spoon it was a pool of chocolate sauce on the plate 🥴 I mean that's like someone bringing you a birthday cake and blowing the candles out for you 🤷 Next time I'll rugby tackle the waiter to the floor if he even looks remotely like he's gonna destroy that beautiful dome instead of me 🤣🤣 Have a great everyone 🙌 . . . . . . #bohemianbedrooms #bedroominspo #bedroomgoals #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #thejungalow #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors #originmagazine

I'm in that "If you hang around long enough I'll paint you too" mood and I've painted the bedroom wardrobe, the kitchen dresser, the hall and I'm in the process of finishing off painting our bedroom. I painted the units in our kitchrn yesterday too and I'll replace the drawer handles today. Yeah my family think I've lost it 🤣 . . We made an outdoor scaffold board table on Saturday and I sanded, stained and waxed it on Sunday and we'll make a bench next week to suit this beast of a table 😁 My hubby made a roof/canopy for over the terrace yesterday and we were supposed to make it last year for over the decking so we could sit outside in thecrain 🤣 but other things got in the way as usual 😮 It's made in a way that it wont block the light coming into the house although the garden is south facing and has sunlight for most of the day. There are a few progress photos on my stories. We've ordered a canvas cover and we'll pull it over the canopy and tie it to cleat hooks on the posts with nylon rope if it rains. I'll be out choosing wood stain for it today so I'm looking forward to sharing it with you all soon. Have a great day everyone 💚 . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #kitchendesign #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

I know two posts in one day 🤪 Sometimes I've no news to share but other days I've lots to say and share and I just can't squeeze it all into one post especially if it's a post that involves a gifted product. I received alot of messages last week about the post where I discussed mentioning brands in posts even if the products weren't gifted or the post wasn't paid for by a brand and although alot of people felt it was free advertising for the brand alot of you felt it was important to know where items in the post were from regardless of whether they were gifted or not. So I'll continue mentioning brands where I can even if they weren't gifted. And yes it is free advertising but hey wotcha gonna do 🤷 That way I don't have to keep sharing where I bought items and I'll mention if the products are tagged in the post too so you'll all know 😉 Have a great day everyone 💚 . . .

I mentioned I was back in the gym recently and some of you said you hated the idea of going to a gym. Well up untill a few years ago so did I. I think I avoided them probably because I felt people were looking at me exercising 🙈 and feeling self concious. I actually went to keep my daughter company as she was going on her own and I also thought it was a good idea because I know the endorphines your body releases when you exercise, even if its only 20 mins a day, is good for mental health as well as keeping you fit so I said yes to that 🙌 I ended up going four times a week when she left a year later 😂 I realised people are so preoccupied with their own programs and exercises they don't really care who's beside them never mind what we look like 🤷 Seriously 😉 . . It's a beautiful day today and we're starting work on the canopy over the decking in the garden 🙌 We have so much work to do it was hard to decide which job to do first but because we've had so much rain we decided to make a roof over the area we chill out most and even when it's raining we can still sit outside now 😁 Have great day everyone 💛 . . . .

Throwback because you know ....you have to on a Friday 🤷 I've always loved taking photos of everything and anything right back to when I bought my first camera when I was teenager and I still love photography now. Its one of my hobbies and was one of my husbands too and he used to collect both new and vintage cameras for years. This photo wasn't taken on one of my cameras but taken on my phone and wasn't set up for a photo either. I took it quickly one winters day so it was very dark and it's's not a clear photo or HD but people were drawn to the colours. Sometimes its not the subject or what you're photographing or how good or clear the photo is that attracts the eye but it could be the moody atmosphere or in this case the colour 💚 Just thought I'd give a little background to this photo 😉 Enjoy your day everyone 💚 . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #bedroominspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorismo #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #originmagazine #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #bedroomdesign #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

This time last year we made the decking for the garden and last summer was so nice we were eating all our meals outside so making the decking was one of the best things we've ever made 🙌 This year we've only had a few meals outside so far and it's feels like we're all just waiting for summer to happen. It rained the entire time my husband had a few days off last week so the opportunity to get any work done in the garden disappeared. . . Its beautiful today but hey guess what? He's in work! 🙈 We were in Wexford southern Ireland yesterday and the sun was splittling the stones and as we headed back to Dublin the rain started again and was so heavy we couldn't hear the radio 😮 Well at least the plants in the garden love it and are thriving so thats something 🤷 And if you live in Ireland its to be expected but you never stop hoping for a little sun 😉 I hope its sunny were you are 🌝🌝 . . .

Hi everyone hope you're all enjoying your Sunday afternoon 😊 The one thing I'm looking forward to now after my break away is getting stuck in to the garden again. We'll be laying slabs were the new shed will go and we'll also lay them on the right hand side of the garden too but keeping some grass on the left hand side. We'll clad our old shed to match the new one and also put a new roof on it and a new door too so there's some work ahead. When thats done we've plans to lay a new floor in our bedroom and wardrobes too which are long overdue. I'm also itching to take more photos but I'm still frazzled after last week and it's a Bank Holiday here in Ireland so I'll start on Tuesday 😉 . . . When I was away another account shared my garden which I always appreciate but opened her caption with "What do you all think? Is this too much?" And all her followers said yes it is. I dont appreciate someone putting my photos out there to be criticised just for the sake of it. So this account put my photo up as an example of what they don't like. Share my photos because you like them not to lead followers into leaving negative comments underneath them 💚 . . On a more positive note I'm chilling out today as my little legs have never walked so much in their lives 😮 My plan is to tuck into some of the 5kg of peanut M&Ms we brought home 🙈 or maybe stuff my face with some Reese's Pieces 😋 and watch a movie and all without moving my legs 🤣 Enjoy your day everyone 🧡 . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitchendecor #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #kitcheninspo #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Well we're home and jet lagged and tired from all the travelling but omg was it the best craic ever!! You know when you come home from a holiday and you miss either the sun, relaxation or the slow pace of that country? well I miss the buzz of NY already and I felt at home because the people reminded me of the people in Dublin. We talk to everyone and anyone and chat like we've known you for years. I felt safe and relaxed and we literally walked the four corners of Manhattan and also took The subway to see as much as possible and never wasted a minute. We drove around parts of Queens like Jamaica and Kew Gardens and strolled through Brooklyn Heights and Greenwich Village and every area was so different from the next. Its great to be home and I missed my family so much but I'd go back in a heartbeat ❤ I'm still sharing it all on my stories as it's the only way my family and friends can see what we've been up to 😉 I hope you're all good and enjoying your Saturday 😍 xx . . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Things I've loved about New York so far: . . The people. How every neighborhood feels like a completely different city. Being able to walk anywhere. Delis with no credit card minimum. Taking pictures in Central Park. The Highline. Soho. Brooklyn. Kew Gardens. Bryant Park. Grand Central Terminal. Greenwich Village. Brooklyn Bridge. Shopping. Times Square. Outdoor dining. The train system can take you anywhere. Bagels. Dollar slices of pizza. Statue Of Liberty. Rockefeller Center. Nightlife never ends. There is always something open 24 hours a day. . There's so much more but at the top of my head these are things I'll take home with me. I❤NY 😉 . . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

I'm not a fan of the heat as most of you know 😨 but yesterday has to be the hottest I've ever experienced in my life...I think 🤔 It was 30°C in Central Park yesterday and the heat didn't seem to affect anyone else but me 😨 We got lost again and ended up on 2nd Avenue which was waaay too far from our hotel on the other side of Manhattan 😯 So that's twice already but hey we made it back and had a lovely lunch in the  Rockefeller Plaza and I tasted fish tacos for the first time. We're off to see the Statue Of Liberty today so fingers crossed we don't get lost again 😁 Have a great day everyone 💚 . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitchendecor #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

We had our first full day in NY yesterday and we left the hotel at 10am and we didnt get back till 11.30 last night. I didnt actually think we'd do that much walking in one day but there was so much to do and see we didnt see the time going. We spent the morning walking the Highline which is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail created on a former New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan and had lunch in The Meatpacking District and then strolled through Greenwich village which is just stunning 😍 We ended up on Times Square which is a huge buzz and had pizza and mingled with thousands of people who were celebrating Memorial weekend in the US. Its 8.45 in NY and we've filled up on pastries and and coffee but I need to find somewhere that makes a good Eggs Benedict 😉 Now we're off to Central Park for a picnic and to the Museum Of Modern Art 😍 Have a great day everyone 💚 . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitchendecor #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Woohoo bring on the weekend 🙌 Well, not that I'll be chilling too much as we've more clearing out to do. Someone said to me recently "Omg you're a long time clearing out that shed" 😂 And yes we are 😬 It's three sheds actually and now we're on the last one and we have to go through everything individually and can't just throw everything out but we're nearly there. I'll admit I'm a hoarder and all jokes aside its not great when you've that much storage space at your disposal and its all stuffed to the gills with things you cant part with 🙈 . . We have one tiny attic in our cottage and we store things that might get damaged there and store other things outside but it feels like a weight is lifted when we bring bags to the recycling centre or charity shop. One of the sheds we cleared last year had my girls toys in it and it nearly killed me to part with them and I cried every time my husband handed me a toy to donate 😭 The shed we're clearing now has everything from an old gym bench (yeah like that'll ever be used again 🙄 ) to roof insulation, an old HiFi stack system (what is this the 80s?🤷‍♀️ ) endless books, dog kennel and half a dozen chairs and tools, tools, tools 🙄 to name but a few. You might never see me again 🙈🤣 Have a great day everyone 😉 . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

I was asked what we do with all the garden furniture and soft furnishings etc when it rains. 🤔 Well I'm usually on the ball and put all the soft furnishing away each night and cover the table and chairs with a tarpaulin. Well, thats the drill anyway but for some reason we took all the soft furnishings in last night but left everything uncovered. So now as we speak my lovely chairs, table and egg chair are drenched from the pouring rain and my brolly is still up and blowing in the wind and rain ☔ 😭 . It reminds of that feeling I get when I hang freshly washed clothes on the line to air and pop out for some shopping, and it pours rain, all I can think of is the washing getting soaked on the line 😖 So I've my rainjacket and wellies at the ready while I contemplate going outside to dry and cover everthing...send help! 😧 I hope its bright and sunny where you are today 😉 . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Thank you for all your lovely birthday wishes yesterday, it means alot ❤ My husband has a few days leave this week and we planned to get stuck into the garden again but the weather has been awful 😕 It was mild yesterday but I was too busy eating and stuffing my face with birthday cake to bother with the garden 🎂😋 Ironically I received alot of gym gear for my birthday so maybe someone is trying to tell me something 🤔 Ah no I asked for them 😂💪 . Its our wedding anniversary today and I'm lucky to be married to my best friend. A friend I'd hang out with as a teenager listening to music in his bedroom back in the day. We very nearly didnt happen as he had a few close calls with one or two crocodiles whilst swimming when he worked in Africa, ambushes on his supply truck and malaria and amoebiasis (a disease caused by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica 😳 ) and stories of him cutting putzi fly eggs ( Greek for human eater ) from under his skin with a Bowie knife 😖 Well nuff said he's here now and I dont take that for granted 😁 I'm off out again to celebrate another milestone 😍 Have a great day everyone xx . . .

I shared this image on a post recently when I was talking about sharing other peoples images without credit as this image was shared many times without me being credited. Afterwards I received alot of messages from people telling me stories of how their designs had been copied or used without permission which is happening every day across the board. . Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery as they say but we have to draw a line somewhere between inspiration and imitation, and it can be a blurry line. We are all exposed to other peoples creations all the time and this can influence what we do but the key is to only focus on one aspect of the work that spoke to us and to me appropriation is at one end of the spectrum that also includes inspiration, imitation and copy. Innovation happens from imitation in many ways, as in business we see it with organisations that come up with simple tweaks to an idea or a product to make it better. . . Conscientiously or unconsciously we all get inspired by the world around us, our daily lives but also other’s and the most natural way of learning is by imitating. Every musician starts by playing other peopled music before they start making their own. Visual artists are usually seen copying master paintings and drawing famous sculptures in museum and this is totally part of the learning process. The only requirement is to be clear about it, give credit to the original author of the work and not try to sell something as yours if it was a copy of someone else’s work and that includes copying a design, a photo or an image on Instagram. Now its my birthday today so I'm off to have cake for breakfast 😂 Have a great day 😍

I'm off out for the day with my hubby and girls so it's a repost today 😁 I'm still buzzing from spending so much time outside chillin' in the garden over the weekend and it feels like our house has doubled in size overnight 😂 . I've loved seeing everyones outdoor spaces and I've enjoyed sharing my garden progress over the last few days too even though its only the terrace area we've cleared off and the rest of the garden is 👎atm. Well actually its just one side and the other side which is in the shade seems to thrive. Its lush and green with lots of plants and the other side is like a dessert 🙈 It's dull today but hey I aint complaining 🤷‍♀️ Have a great day everyone xx . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitchendecor #kitcheninterior #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #interiormilk #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

I'm currently nursing a food baby from overindulgence and it wasn't from eating all the easter eggs (ok it was a little 😁 ) and more a combination of roast dinner followed by dessert and black forest forest gateau 🙈 There's nothing nicer than your mother's cooking and we had the nicest day with my parents eating food and laughing which is my kind of day 💕 I hope you're all enjoying the bank holiday weekend and the sun is shining where you are 🌞🌞 . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #plantgang #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #outdoordecor #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Thank you for your comments on yesterday's post 💚 I'll share things you found helpful in combating stress and anxiety here. Learning to control anxiety is a long term process and not something that can be solved overnight but there are ways to ease anxiety which can be integrated into our daily lives. When we're stressed the voice inside our head gets loud and persistent so keep this negative voice at bay by talking to yourself in a calm tone and injecting some positivity into your internal dialogue. . Identifying our stress signals and learning to recognise the signs of stress is important, maybe our stomach clenches or our palms sweat. When we experience stress our pulses race, our heart beats faster and the hormones cortisol and adrenaline are released into our bodies which can compromise our immune system and when we can recognise the signs we'll be able to start addressing the underlying cause of the stress. . There are things in our lives that relax us and its good to make a list of things we enjoy that help us relax and when we notice our anxiety rising we can turn to these activities to ease the symptoms before they escalate so if a bath is relaxing light some candles and hop in or a walk in the park or massage, if it works do it rather than allowing yourself to become overwhelmed by your anxiety. . Breathing is very helpful and if you breathe in slowly through your nose for 5 to 7 seconds, hold for 3 to 4 seconds, breathe out slowly through pursed lips for 7 to 9 seconds and this will ensure you're not hyperventilating. . Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to treat a number of conditions as they activate areas of the brain to release feel-good chemicals such as serotonin and they can ease symptoms of anxiety and improve our mood and sleep. . Its good to talk so if you like and trust someone give them a call.Talking to empathetic people can be calming and can also keep our minds off of the symptoms. A brisk walk/cycle burns away stress hormones that cause anxiety symptoms, tires muscles and releases endorphins in our brain which can improve our overall mood. I hope you find some of these helpful and I hope you all have a lovely day 💚

I havent shared this image in a while and I was messaged last week by someone who said they have it saved and never realised it was my photo 😊 When other accounts share our images, which is great btw 🙌 the owner of the image sometimes gets lost in all the shares which is going to happen. I've shared images I love on my stories and once or twice it turned out it wasnt theirs so I always read the caption to check for a tagged account now. . . . Its usual that the account is mentioned in the first line in the caption but I've seen people leave it till the very last line of a very long caption 🤷‍♀️ Anyway I think most people know this is mine in the same way we all recognise Reena's @hygge_for_home iconic kitchen or Medina's @grillodesigns kitchen 💛 They're unique to them. What images do you recognise straight away when you're scrolling without checking the owner?? 😍 . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninterior #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #myinterior #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #interiorboom #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #interiormilk #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

How do you feel about having pets on the sofa, having the run of the house and even on the bed? 🐶 A friend said to me recently that she's too house proud to have a dog in the house and was horrified people have them on their beds. Now I cant have ours on my bed because I have asthma but our dog slept beside my bed for a year before he decided he was a big boy and wanted to sleep in the hall beside our room 😂 I know alot of people who have their pets on their beds because they're part of the family. Now a big hairy husky that sheds enough hair to knit six cardigans is a different matter 🙈😂 How much freedom do your pets have in your home? . . .

I remember when I was about 14 yrs old my aunt bought me my first house plant 🌱 and I was hooked after that. By the time I was 16 I had over 30 plants and I loved caring for them but my mam took over when I started dating my first boyfriend because I was just too distracted after that 🙈 I've had lots of different plants over the years but never as many as when I lived at home....well, that is until now. . . I have quite a few plants but recently I lost about five 😖 Yes I know thats alot but I was a little distracted over Christmas 😯 and I feel so guilty like some kind of plant killer. Most of them are thriving now but some just didnt make it and others are still hanging in there and I'll admit my ferns are literally living on the edge right now. It was very touch and go recently when I spotted some shrivelled leaves on two so I put them on the window sill and gave them a spritz but unfortunately this could be the beginning of the end for Sideshow Bob and his bro Cecil 🙈 Yes I name them and might even take up chatting to them too like one British green-fingered heir to the throne once famously admitted to giving his plants a little verbal encouragement 😂  Have a wonderful day everyone 💚 . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #decorcrushing #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #myinterior #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #inspohome #myhyggehome #apartmenttherapy #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #interiormilk #homeinspiration #bohointeriors
