Im back! I am feeling refreshed and ready to start back here with lots of exciting projects. We had a great time away, its amazing what a little vitamin D can do for you. This year Sebastian starts school and Oliver starts a new school, so for the rest of the summer I wanted to just focus on them and the family. With the first day being yesterday, I made a to-do list and you can imagine its the longest to-do list ever. I don’t know where to start, maybe best to start in the boys room because new floors got put down at the weekend and the place is a complete mess because of it.
I was going to attach some lovely kids room inspiration but I will save that for another post. Instead I wanted to share with you the new Ferm Living A/W collection. I love the tone of the images, a mix of warm greys and browns. Which seems to be the colour for autumn.
Its vacation time! Time to take a break and enjoy some sunshine. I haven’t been very regular with my blog recently, a mixture of having a bad start to the year and trying to adjust to a new way of living without my dad and moving house, trying to find the motivation to start renovating. I am hoping this much-deserved holiday will do the trick. Refresh me and give me loads of inspiration that I am looking for, I always find that traveling is the best for that.
I want to come back and really tackle the house, I have loads of ideas and I would like to share them with you here. Progress of the house and get back to regular posting with some interesting blog content. I want to change the design of my blog, basically give everything a shake and hit the refresh button.
Thanks for sticking with me, it really means a lot to me. I will enjoy this week off and hope I come back with the motivation I need.

Just now we haven’t really tackled upstairs. I want to look into different colours for upstairs, maybe a nice blue for the boys room and a grey for ours. With so many greys, I am still deciding whether a darker shade or lighter. The rooms are currently pretty bare, I have been reluctant to hang pictures on the wall because I want to paint first. I also plan to get some small shelves added into an alcove we have at the side of the bed. This will solve the small bedroom, no space for bed side cabinets!
With not much going on in the room I still want to add interest, how do I do this? By adding great textiles through linen bedding, blankets and cushions. I was recently introduced to Ingredients LDN, a brand that explores ways of translating philosophical, cultural and scientific conceptualisations of wellbeing into tangible everyday experiences.

They have some gorgeous Linen bedding, if you are a fan like me, you must check them out! Currently on my bed is the hand Loomed Cotton blanket in charcoal, it looks great against the linen and is very soft against the skin. It has that imperfect finish, which I love, yet still the perfect blanket for summer months, doubled up would be nice and cosy in the winter.
How would you like to be in with a chance of winning one of these Loomed Cotton Blankets? All you have to do is pop over to my Instagram to be in with a chance of winning one of the charcoal blankets. The giveaway will be running for one week in total and the winner will be announced on Ingredients LDN Instagram.
