Day 16: #animalmagic #myhousethismonth . Looking around our house we have a lot of stuff (or crap as we fondly refer to it most days) but none of it is animally - well other than my new cushions but I cannot do yet another square of my living room! Flo’s room, however, has a lot of animal bits so I’ve pulled a few of my faves together which include the gorgeous rabbit painting my MIL painted when Flo was born. We even managed to fly it back from Argentina undamaged ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป The large animal picture and the animal figures are all from Africa (probably from South Africa and Kenya but I can’t say for sure). And the chest of drawers that cost me a magical 7 quid from a local Facebook group. I did consider upcycling it but I love it just the way it is - old musty smell n all. . #handpainted #internationaldecor #floandolive #thriftyfinds  #upcycle #lovemyhome #instahome #instagramhome #homeinspo #realhomesofinsta #sunshinehouse #homdesign #storyofmyhome #spotlightonmyhome #homeinterior #coolinteriorfave #stylishhomevibes #stylishhomevibe #myinteriorsquares #myhomevibe #cornerofmyhome #housedecor #ukhomestyle #myhomeinterior #myinteriorstyletoday #myinteriorvibe
Crowning Glory: @storyofmyhome. My pineapple ๐Ÿ tops. The one on the left is over a year old. On the right, about 4 months.  The big one is getting too big for the pot. Was thinking about re-planting into the ground because it supposed to still have another year of growth before it will bear fruit. Really leery about it considering this winter is coming. Decided I’m gonna wait until the spring to replant. Which means I will be carting all my cactuses and succulents in to my home for the winter. Worried about the lack of light in there though. You’re always worried about something, huh? Bon Lundi mes amies. #storyofmyhome @jackdmarch @hardcastletowers @thegingerhareofyorkshire @the_yorkshire_homestead @negi.at.home @myinteriorsquares #myinteriorsquares @housetohomestyling @dotty.about.design @no.7_is_home @catwalktocowpat #pineappletops #winter #durham #nc #chezjones #dayinalife
DAY 16 - ANIMAL MAGIC  #myhousethismonth  This is definitely a magic moment! There is no way Nancy will sit and look at me for a photo. How did you do it I here you ask๐Ÿคท‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿค”.... . Well, she’s had 3 green beans, 3 carrot sticks and slightly less healthy option in the form of a slice of corned beef.  I feel it was the latter that nailed the sit! . Sometimes for ANIMAL MAGIC a little bit of bribery comes into it! .  Swipe along for a couple of pics where it didn’t go quite to plan! ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿถโค๏ธ . #loveourhouse  #myhomedesign #northernhomesuk  #interiors  #interiorinspo #actualinstahomes  #realhomes  #myinteriorsquares #instahomes  #interiorstyled  #interior  #homesweethome  #homedecor  #homeinspo  #loveinterior  #interiorblog  #storyofmyhome  #myhousebeautiful  #myhouse  #myhouseidea #houndsathome #beaglesofinstagram #beaglesarethebest  #beagle
Back home from a lovely few days in Wales, and we got stuck straight into doing a few snagging DIY jobs around the house like putting up these new bedside lights. Love how this room is coming together ๐Ÿ’•

Living in High Cotton ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ #storyofmyhome ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ I do count my blessings every day and when I feel down which thankfully isn't often, I am mindful of the fact that things could always be worse.  So, speaking literally, my latest crush are these cotton blend cushion covers in William Morris  fabrics and I am a firm believer in mixing prints as you can see! I mean how could you pick just one? ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ #williammorris  #saynotoemptywalls #retrohauls #myhousethismonth  #eclecticallymade  #howivintage #mybrightdiy #luxuryinteriorsonabudget  #mydiymydecor #scrollstoppinghome  #thriftingwithmgc #myperiodhomestyle #mystylishspace #periodhomesofinsta #mygorgeousgaff #myeclecticspace #spotlightonmyhome #colorlovedecor #myinteriormydecor #vintagestyle #greathomestaketime #dailydecordetail #rockininteriors #mybombshellhome #mycreativeinterior #walltowallstyle #myinteriorsquares #artfullyhomes
This #grandmachiconfleek brass candle stick was $2 at my local thrift store and the #milkglass bud vase (one of my favorites) was found in a box of free stuff on the side of the road! I almost finished that awesome Wisconsin Rocker Co rocking chair this weekend. Let’s just say patience and upholstery are not my jam๐Ÿ˜ญ. Wishing you all an inspired week, whatever you may be working on ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ–ผ . . . . #theeverygirlathome #realhomesofinstagram #storyofmyhome #myhomethismonth #highlowdecor #thrifteddecor #thriftdecor #myinspiredhouse #designonadime #sodomino #decorinspo #designinspo #mystoryfilledhome #theeverymom  #zerodollarupdate #upcycle #goodwillfinds #apartmenttherapy  #thriftingwithmgc #elevatetheeveryday #thatroomiseverything #bhgtastemaker #bhghome #mylovleyhomelife #housebeautiful
• Weighted Blanket •  Update on the benefits of a weighted blanket. As you may know I got this bargain blanket from @oxfamgb a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been sleeping with it each night and have slept extremely well ever since. The weight of it makes you feel secure and safe and has a soothing effect. My nights have been solid unbroken sleep and I wake up feeling refreshed. I’ve also had a couple of afternoons with anxiety and panic feelings and have got under my blanket to relax and calm. So as far as I’m concerned they’re a positive ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. There is the flip side where my husband doesn’t like the feel of it at all and feels claustrophobic so i suppose you have to think wether you enjoy being hugged and cuddled in the first place ๐Ÿ˜‚ #decor#design#charityshops#bargains#budget#houselove#skipfind#paint#paper#makeover#garden#interiors#cheshire#behindthedoorof84#thrifting#therapy#sandbach#wallpaper#plants#storyofmyhome#greathomestaketime#nesttoimpress#mycreativeinterior#therapy#recycle#neonsign#velvetcushions#weightedblanket#anxiety#panic
Day 16 @storyofmyhome prompt today is “living in high cotton”. I hadn’t a clue what this meant so I looked it up and learnt that it means happy because when the cotton is high it means the pickers don’t have to stoop so low to pick it which makes them happy so thanks for that SOMH gang!๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐ŸซLots of happy vibes here at HB today as the sun is shining, I’ve been faffing with some cut flowers from the garden which always makes me happy and I’m off to London on Wednesday to help my daughter pimp up her new pad!  Not to mention a sprinkling of animal magic (@myhousethismonth) from my lovely boy this morning๐Ÿ’•. Hope Monday is going well for you all insta friends!

Light out front, cosy out back ๐Ÿค— Now, what is with these temps in the 20’s?! I need chilly, I need jumpers, I need slippers...๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿผ Oh and a 5m black curtain rail - where can I find one of those?? ๐Ÿค”
#myhousethismonth Day 12-Go for Gold. . After another weekend away, I am now playing catch up.  Knowing we’d be busy, I had all of my pics ready, to post up, over the weekend and felt quite organised...until Thursday came and it was, literally, THE BUSIEST day ever! I had appointments, meetings, and school open sessions, as well as packing for a whole family of six (plus ๐Ÿถ), for a long weekend!  Then very early, Friday, I woke up, feeling awful, with, what I later figured, was food poisoning! Without going into too much detail, our journey, down to Yorkshire, which should have taken 6 hours, ended up taking 9, as we had to make so many stops๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ’ฉ. It was the worst journey of my life!!! After my Step-mother-in-law, rubbed my belly with her magic potion (eternally grateful @lindarlball โค๏ธ), I had a fantastic, long sleep and woke up, feeling refreshed and back to normal! It was Saturday though, and party day (Father-in Laws 70th) and there were cakes to make and decorating to be done...and of course, partying into the wee hours!  Sunday was a late start, as you’d imagine, and after repacking our belongings (which is not as easy as it sounds, as my family like to spread,  said belongings,  far and wide, wherever we go), and more visiting, we had the return journey back home, which I am happy to report, was a much more pleasant one, all round (for obvious reasons๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜‰)! Happy Monday, my friends! . . . . . #spotlightonmyhome #myspaceanddecor #storyofmyhome #nesttoimpress #stylishhomevibes #rockmystylishhome #howimonochrome #walltowallstyle #myinteriorsquares #homesofinsta #realhomes #actualhomesofinstagram #actualinstagramhomes #interiordesign #homeinspiration #homeinspo #interiorstyling #style #homestyle #mystyle #howihome #homecomfort #gold #goforgold #accent #goldaccents
I don't know if I'll ever tire of gallery walls. And these Ikea picture ledges make them so easy - there's so much opportunity to mix things up and move things around at will, with none of the faff of drilling holes or tacking nails in the wrong place. Can you tell I've been there, done that, got the unwanted holes in my walls to prove it? This current display has evolved to include quite a few bird designs, quite by accident - perfect for today's  #myhousethismonth - Day 16 - #animalmagic. I love how they sit alongside geometric designs, typography and a signed print from an amazing @rae_morris gig last year in Manchester. They should go on paper, but it kind of works, don't you think?
Our little Bella had a bad start to life and it was so lucky that we spotted her, a tiny bedraggled little scrap of a kitten just big enough to sit in your hand - after she’d been abandoned in the field next to our old house.  Since that day 14 years ago she’s been living in high cotton & loving her life!  We think it was animal magic that brought her to us even though the early days were an expensive round of visits to the vet. She such a funny little thing and much prefers to stay indoors where I think she feels safe. This past 6 months have stressed her slightly as she doesn’t like strangers in the house (I think she barely tolerates family at times!) and while the builders are in she usually takes herself upstairs until they leave.  You can almost hear the sigh of relief when they leave.. ๐Ÿพ Day 16 @storyofmyhome living in high cotton @myhousethismonth animal magic  #septemberchallenge #storyofmyhome #livinginhighcotton #myhousethismonth #animalmagic #wefoundakitten #sherulesthehouse #familypet #myhomevibe #lovelylife #spoiledcat #howwehome #myhappyhome

I am here to inspire, to be inspired and most of all have fun. For the last 7 Days, I have seen this happen for me. I made so many new friends and had lots of conversations. I hit the 1,000 milestone over the weekend.  During this time, we all waited to see my first ever fall dinning table scape that was achieved with items I already had in my house. Three amazing ladies put together table scapes that inspired what you see here and I am sharing them and their amazing table scapes in my stories.  So after waiting all week, I present to you in all its glory my ๐Ÿ Fall 2019 Dinning Table Scape ๐Ÿ. I dedicate this to my 9-year old twin girls who helped me a lot in putting this together. Their addition of the cute little squirrel was a HIT. In their honour, I am sharing this with my favourite twins on Instagram -- Jodie & Julie for #thedesigntwinslovefall.  Wishing you all a fruitful and productive week. What goals will you like to smash this week?
• Monday •  Monday again?! I appreciate it makes no huge difference to me as I’m off on maternity leave, but still, I feel the blues regardless ๐Ÿ˜‚  As usual my son is the king of short naps, so all I’ve managed to do this morning (other than entertain him) is put my clothes away and pile some stuff in the sink ๐Ÿ˜’ I am counting down the days until we have a dishwasher and we are free of the tyranny of washing up! • • • • • • • #pinkchairdontcare #midcenturymodern #gplan #dressingtable #retro #bedroomdecor #styleitdark #myperiodhomestyle #rockmystylishhome #newinteriorsontheblock #myhousejournal #colourfulhome #myeclectichome #mycolourfulhome #myhousedownsouth #myhousethismonth #styledupinterior #gallerywall #eclecticallycool #diydecor #renovation #storyofmyhome #housetohome #housework #houseworksucks #tidyup

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน ๐Ÿ™ˆ ๐ŸŽ‚ โœจ๐Ÿฅณ. Ok I won’t go on about it. Everyone knows I don’t really celebrate like any normal person does. I’m off for a jog at about 3 miles an hour. Then I’m having a coffee and going out to work on a Mid Century Sideboard and console ๐Ÿ˜‚. My live in lover will be sure to pour me a drink of something fizzy later before we have to attempt to get the kids to go to bed before I do but until then, I better go and get on with things ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘.

We love to see our bedding in your homes ๐Ÿงก Thanks @life_at_135 it looks great ๐Ÿ˜ Posted @withrepost • @life_at_135 I could feel the chill in the air this morning when I eventually emerged from bed! With the harvest moon last night we're on a direct course for Autumn and I bloody love it!! Honestly I'm like Autumn's teachers pet, show me the knit wear!! . I'm rambling, Autumn approaching has me all a jitter, or maybe im still feeling the effects from a full moon in Friday 13th?! . Anyway, part of my prep for the colder weather is switching out the duvets for the winter versions!! I've done Amy's this morning and have dressed it with this gorgeous new cover from @luxtonliving . I was so lucky to be picked as this months winner for @mycolourfulinterior and won an amazing prize! You can see all of Amy's goodies from @luxtonliving the cover, mermaid blanket, pink throw, fluffy white cushion and Amy's favourite, the llama hooded blanket!! . Right now that's done I really need to get cracking with my Christmas shopping, I'm bucking my own trend this year as I've usually done loads by this point but so far I've only gotten a couple of bits!! . @storyofmyhome day 14 harvest moon @interiorsquareshare teachers pet  @mycolourfulinterior buck the trend . #pimpupmypad  #interiormakeover #interiorsquareshare  #myhousethismonth  #storyofmyhome  #instahoodwatch  #styledupinterior  #greathomestaketime  #walltowallstyle  #mycolourfulinterior  #crashbangcolour  #dailydecordetail  #dailyhomeshare  #sassyhomestyle  #postitandsmile  #eclecticallycool  #eclecticallymade #monochrome #homeinterioruk #spotlightonmyhome  #spotthenewtrend  #colorlovedecor  #dailydecordose #colourcrush #stylishhomevibes  #styleitreal  #mybombshellhome #scrollstoppinghome #myspaceanddecor #myseasonalrevamp
°•°BEDROOM°•° Can we just take a moment to swoon over the washed wood beads on my chandelier ๐Ÿ˜ • Texture in the bedroom is key for me.
