Home improvement daydreaming....

Image found here

It's a busy season.  Work is as frenetic as ever, wedding plans seem very real as we head into the last few months, Junior League is challenging and wonderful (often in equal measure), and life is littered with loveliness as we celebrate weddings, new babies, new homes with so many people we love.

In amongst all this mania, I am being sure to make time for a little daydreaming too, and my favourite current theme is home inprovements.  We went to the Grand Designs Live event at the weekend, and that, plus reading a few design magazines, has me feeling inspired.  We've been in this house for just over two years and now it feels like it might be time to make some changes.

There are areas of the house which work brilliantly (our bedroom is light and pretty and functional); those which need a 'tweak' (the upper spare room could do with a better bed); and those which need big a rethink (the kitchen/dining room needs more light and less kitty fluff!).

With the wedding and honeymoon both saving priorities just now, we are a few steps away from action, but I'm enjoying spending an hour here or there planning, drawing, budgeting and daydreaming....

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
