Take a look inside…

It’s been a good few weeks since we moved into our new house and slowly but surely we are getting the rooms to look more homely and “lived” in. The builders have officially left (the portaloo was removed from site only the other day!!) and there is just a small snagging list to work through. We do have a few outstanding works to do but this is predominately outside electrical work so it shouldn’t impact us too much. There are also a couple of things that building control need verification on so we are hoping to provide this, this week to then receive final sign off.

So, why not take a look inside our new home…! (I hope you like?!)


In my next blog post I’m hoping to load some before and after pictures so you can see the real differences between what our house once was and what it is today. The changes are pretty vast so stayed tuned…!

Thanks for reading 🙂

    Stunning home – you have such a good eye for quality and detail. I hope you can relax a little now after the hardwork of the last few months.

      Thank you! Now just need to have this baby – due next week! Building a house and a baby both at the same time has been interesting…!

      Apologies for the delayed reply (a new baby has slowed me down!). Our kitchen is from Tom Howley.

    So beautiful! Congratulations on the build being pretty much complete! The baby girl’s room is so precious, and I adore your master bedroom.

    LOVE your home and this is exactly the kind of look I am after. I am about to undertake a big renovation project myself and I also live in the same area as you, I was wondering if you could let me know the builders you used as we are really struggling! Also your kitchen is stunning, where is it from?
    Many thanks xx

      Hi Julia, apologies for the delayed reply ( a new baby has slowed me down a little!!). Our builders were fab and would definitely recommend them. The firm is called Mark Scott Constructions. Our kitchen is from Tom Howley. Hope this all helps!

    All looks beautiful! We moved into our house on 1st Feb and need to refurbish it all. Finding it a nightmare. Are your kitchen units white??

    • June 29, 2017 / 2:00 pm

      I know the feeling! Our main units are cornforth white (light grey) in colour.

        Love it! Another colour question! Do you know the ral number of you windows (outside)? Are the powder coated aluminium?

        • August 11, 2017 / 10:24 am

          Hi, thanks! The windows are timber and painted in RAL colour 7037.

    Hi I love the colours of your kitchen cabinets – please could you let me know what they are?

    • June 29, 2017 / 2:00 pm

      Sure, cornforth white for main units and hague blue for the island.

    Beautiful beautiful home. Follow you on Instagram and just found you blog! Could I ask what colour your hall way is (upstairs)? Could I also ask for the white in your bathrooms? I’m pretty sure I have the same tiles and struggling to find paint!! xxx

    • August 11, 2017 / 10:26 am

      The hallway colour is shaded white from farrow and ball. The bathrooms are just pure white but a water resistant type of paint!

    Hi, what a great build! You have a beautiful home.

    I was pointed in the direction of your blog by the supplier of your dining table (which also looks great). How do you find it? Does the glass move around at all?

    Would love to hear how you’re getting on with it.

    • August 30, 2017 / 2:15 pm

      Hi, thanks. Table is great, glass hasn’t moved once so it’s doing its job well! It’s very heavy and good quality and everyone comments on it!
