Welcome to my new interiors blog, this happy home. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll enjoy what you see here and come back often to see what’s new.
So what brought me here? I’m a 40-something mum to two boys, aged 6 and 8. By day, I run my own PR consultancy and in any spare time I have day or night, I can often be found scouring shops, magazines and the internet for interesting new home and interiors ideas. I’m a magpie for beautiful things, especially those with a bit of sparkle and glitter.
My husband and I are just embarking upon our second major home renovation in three years (we must be mad). I think it’s a bit like having a baby; three years in, you’ve forgotten about the hard work and the sleepless nights and it seems like a good idea to do it all over again.
But this (we hope) is the ‘forever home’, a very pretty white house which captured our hearts even before we’d set foot in it, so I’ll be documenting the journey of our build and renovation for anyone who’s interested in seeing how that turns out.
I’ll also be sharing lots of other interesting and affordable finds – if you’re fickle like me then it makes sense to keep the costs reasonable, so you can update frequently without a guilty conscience.
I’d love to hear any comments you have about the site or anything featured here.
