Farewell little house...it has been a lovely 5 years, but now time for a new adventure/renovation in the countryside. A few of the agent listing photos and my favourite before and after pictures... Next stop....West Sussex! #victorianrenovation #whitegarden
ZEUSY//. Who couldn’t love this little squishy face! He has become my absolute world and I love him so much. As you can see Zeus is modelling our “lovely” floorboards. We have decided not to do the floor in the kitchen or hall until we have done the garden as everything has to come through the house. I will get round to going to look for kitchen wall tiles though! Forever dreaming about those and my kitchen shelves!! Right, off to walk my little buddy before I start my day. #kitchenrenovation #wrenkitchens #creamkitchen #originalfloorboards #woodenfloorboards #hungarianvizla #hungarianvizla #hungarianvizlapuppy #15weekoldpuppy #thetaleoftwogingers #victorianhouse #victorianrenovation #kitchendiner #puppylove #puppiesofinstgram #vizlas #vizlasofinstagram #vizslapuppy #vizslacommunity
It feels like it’s been the longest and most drawn out part of the whole renovation but we are FINALLY getting there with the back yard project. Today the last bits of paving should be finished and the boundary walls all built up to the same level ready for the slatted fencing to sit on top and the gate to be hung on Saturday.  I’ve been adding the progress to Back Yard highlights so you might have seen already, but after a trip to @wentworthgardencentre this weekend we’ve now got all the plants (probably a few too many in fact) and just need to fathom how to go about planting them! Here’s a little summary of our leafy little pals and new sawn and honed mint limestone paving, modelled by my forever sandalled feet 🤣  #myhappyplace #howihome #homesweethome  #myhomestyle  #stylemepretty  #allthepastels  #prettypretty  #victorianterrace #periodhomesofinsta #victorianrenovation #remodel  #diy  #insideoutside  #reno  #fixerupper #doerupper #renovationproject  #cornerofmyhome #mystylishspace #interiormilk #backyard #sandstone #paving #gardenmakeover #mybackyard
It’s an early one from me as we’re on our way to the airport Valencia bound ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ I’ve had hardly any sleep as both kids were awake during the night 😱😱😱. Do you think I can get some sleep on the plane? . Have a great day all! I hear that the UK is set for a heatwave this week ☀️☀️☀️ I’m looking forward to having a beer by the pool this afternoon 🍺 🍺 🍺. . Joining in with @myhousethismonth with FLOWERS and @mydailyrenovation with HANDLE - we’ve mostly gone for a handleless kitchen and only have cut out handles on some of the appliances to be able to open the doors. Top tip if your dishwasher opens at the tap of the door, you don’t need a handle, we didn’t realise this until the door when on. DOH! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️. Can you spot the Insta fail on this pic? . . . . . #myhousethismonth #mydailyrenovation #blackkitchen #kitchenextension #howimonochrome #victorianrenovation #myinteriorsquares #myinteriorvibe #styledupinterior #stylishhomevibes #walltowallstyle #mycolourfulinterior #myperiodstyle  #victorianterrace #edwardianterrace #brockley #stylemyhome #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #renovationproject #doerupper #interiorblogger #londonblogger #interiorinspo #interior_and_living #myhousebeautiful #rockmystylishhome
From the wilderness came the sleek....⁣ ⁣ A few months ago Rockit Home was asked if we could help create a low maintenance garden from a “wilderness”. ⁣ ⁣ Never one to shy away from a challenge the chief designers set about creating the dream garden.⁣ ⁣ In true Cumbrian style the summer down pours created a challenge all on their own.⁣ ⁣ The outcome.... well the pictures speak volumes. The clients response was something else!!! ⁣ ⁣ Rockit Home is the complete lifestyle brand that you need! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #victorianrenovation #rockithome #gardenmakeover #gardening #victoriangarden #lowmaintenancegarden #lowmaintenancegardening #lifestyle #lifestylebrand #dreamgarden #garden #stylish #interiors #exteriors #myhome #myhomethismonth #mygarden #hygge
The three stages of grief when dealing with an original period ceiling.  Step 1: remove lime plaster and laths - shower at least three times after, it's a filthy job  Step 2: remove every nail you can find and then move electrics and plumbing as needed - it will take ages and you will need a roller for your back  Step 3: insulate and sound proof in preperatipn for new plasterboard - you will itch like mad  It will be worth it!  #nearlydone #soundproof #insulation #backbreaking #theonlywayisup #slowlywinstherace #victorianhouse #victorianrenovation #victorianrestoration #terracehouse #diy #islagiatt #theupside
Anddd we have carpets 😍. I feel like this is quite a monumental moment, it makes both of the bedrooms feel like actual bedrooms. Ignore all the fluff.. I haven’t hoovered them yet! We also have our bed built too, just waiting for the mattress to arrive on Wednesday. Another step closer to being completely finished 😍. .  #homereno #homerenovation #flatrenovation #traditionalhome #traditionalproperty #victorianrenovation #victorianhouse #glasgowtenement #tenement #glasgow #glasgowwestend #hyndland #bedroomdesign #bedroomdecor #bedroomrenovation #interiordesign #newcarpet #farrowandball #hagueblue #strongwhite #peignoir #corryliving
🎁🎂🎉🎈 B i r t h d a y  B l u e s ☔️😏🌫🌧 So usually on this day of the year I’m sunning myself in France, stuffed from a posh meal and supping desparados surrounded by nature.  Today? I’ve cooked my own birthday meal, it’s pissing down and I’m drinking desparados by the fire in my home on the A58!  I know I’ve been spoilt in recent years for holidays, but I cannot wait for this renovation to be complete and to go back to my life with added vitamin D. ☀️ Thanks for all the birthday wishes tho! 😀😘 @alittlevictorianhouse  #cecis36  #victorianhouse #victorianhome #victorianrenovation #houserenovation #housereno #myhome #ourhome #instahome #instareno #instainteriors #instahomedecor 🏚🏡🔨🛠🔧💡🔩🛁🚿🚽🛏🛋🚪

Andrew- People come out of the woodwork when they see you restoring an old home that they feel connected to. Most come with stories of growing up and playing Dennis the Menace to former owners, sneaking up the back staircase to see one of the cute sons who lived there, or even previous occupants who are responsible for the odd art that is still on some of the basement walls. While all of those are fun and help to weave the story, I love it most of all when they bring pictures! A neighbor stopped by this afternoon with this fantastic picture from the late 1890s. Though they didn't have a story to go with it, they still wanted to share it and I am glad they did! I will let you know when I can find out more about the people in the picture.  #oldphoto #memories #1890s #whoarethesepeople #cornwallpa #1878 #cornwall #victorianrenovation #historichouses #52weeksofhomes #thisoldhouse #architecturalsalvage #oldhouselove #victorianhome #periodproperty #historicpreservation #localhistory #historicbuildings #statelyhome #historicarchitecture #victorianarchitecture #antiquehome #myvintagehome #oldhome #archi_ologie #oldhomelove
This is how you do DIY - taking tiles out with a crowbar at 4 years old in bare feet 🤣 as you can see we follow all the relevant health and safety. When we first moved in there was a large stove in this fireplace, not particularly old and not particularly functional anymore we removed it and then removed the built up hearth so we could put our cooker in the fireplace. Sometimes bits and pieces fall down the chimney when you’re cooking, but I just think it adds flavour now 😉🤣 The children love getting involved whenever they can - loading skips, knocking plaster off walls, carrying bricks and whatever else they can do! I’m hoping they turn out to be practical little people. . . . . #renovation #victorianhouse #victorianrenovation #renoproject #momof3 #familyof5 #dadandson #involvethekids #homesweethome #ourhome #kitchenrenovation #kitchenreno #diy #kidsdiy #diyers #livingonabuildingsite #homedecor #kitchenremodel #home #architecture #construction #fatherandson #middlechild
In between two long days at work so you’d think I’d be relaxing and getting an early night... nope!! Another dose of #renovationreality for you! Front windows are in (yay! No glass til later in the week) but builders forgot to put the insulation in above this window (boo) so we’ve sorted it.

OK, not ideal to have to turn this building site of a room mid reno, but my parents are flying in tomorrow and are here for 3 weeks and so we needed a bedroom back.  Not many posts lately because we've been flat out finishing the plaster patching at 1 am and then a monster clean up from ceiling to floor so that it's inhabitable.  Moving furniture, etc. . No paint or decor, but I guess we're channelling a bare plaster Anthropologie kind of look!! In the evening light it's kind of interesting... . . We would have loved to have shown them the room all done and beautiful, but we aren't having it skimmed with lime until next month!! . . #bedroom #reno #renovation #victorianrenovation #mydailyrenovation #renolife #realbedroom #instareality #home #quilts #farmhouselove #nocurtains #barewalls #plastering #limewalls #lincolnshire #realdecor
Dan and I recently took on a historic Victorian ‘doer upper’ 🏠. If you are interested in following our progress and/or watching the madness unfold 🤦🏼‍♀️ - we’ve made another Instagram account @the_shell_house 🐚 #theshellhouse #wishusluck #projecthouse #victorianrenovation
Day 19 Next Big Purchase @mydailyrenovation replacing these vertical blinds in Eryn's room will be the next big purchase. Will be nice to put some new white venetians in here. #mydailyrenovation #mydailyrenovationchallenge #renovationproject #victorianhouse🏡 #victorianhome #victorianrenovation #vintagedecor #periodrenovation #periodproperty #periodhomes #project #valsparpaint #venetianblinds
I’ve been meaning to post about the history behind the Shell House for a while. Spotting some people taking pictures of the house today reminded me! For those that are interested, this is the story... A boy called Fred Attrill was collecting cockles and winkles at Osborne Bay in 1852, when a young lad came by and kicked over his bucket of shells. Fred angrily punched him, only to later to realise the boy was actually the Prince.  Fred was summoned to Osborne House by Queen Victoria soon after this altercation. Fred had expected to be punished but instead Her Majesty apologised to him for the bad behaviour of her son, giving him a golden sovereign as compensation!  Later Fred moved in to this house and spent years decorating the building and garden with shells from the beach.  A later owner, Captain Sharman, created this painting of a ship along the side wall.  Another previous owner of the house removed most of the shells - someone told me it was because they were fed up of the tourists?! The ship, the outside toilet door (‘Queenies Throne’), and a few plant pots are all that remain of the shells.  A folder was left at the house full of pictures and information about the Shell House, including the original deeds given by Queen Victoria, which we are planning on getting framed up.  We feel really fortunate to now own the house and add our little bit of history to it ❤️🏠👨‍👩‍👦‍👦. #theshellhouse #fredericattrill #queenvictoria #osbornebay #historichouse #osbornehouse #victorianrestoration #victorianhouse #victorianrenovation #projecthouse #periodliving @daniel_carley
Snuck away to Beautiful Days festival for three days while Troy and Ben put up the steels. I don’t think the teens who were squatting in the house enjoyed the petrol cutter at 8am each morning... but look at the room! It looks ace 😃😃😃 . . . #renovating #renovation #restoration #victorianhome #periodrenovation #resto #periodhomesofinsta #houserenovation #victorianterrace #victorianrenovation #victorianrestoration #victorianhouse #myhousethismonth #mydailyrenovation #houserenovations #dontmoveimprove #renovationlife #truro #sidereturnextension
Day 19: next big purchase... our next big purchase is going to be our loft conversion. However, that’s definitely not the one on my mind, I’m totally skipping ahead to all the goodies for the living room and recreating this beautiful set-up from @johnlewisandpartners. I’m guessing I’m not the only one who does that?🙄 #mydailyrenovation . . . . . . . . . #victorianrenovation #victorianhouse #victorianhome  #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #victorianterrace #renovating #londonrenovation  #houserenovations #interiordesign #interior #colourmyhome #weeklyinteriorinspo  #victorianhomestyle #homerenovation #myhomestyle #dailydecordetail #homegoals #stylemyhome #mydiymydecor #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #brightboldhome #myrenostory

Happy Mon-YAY all. Today is the day we bugger off for a week 💃🏼🕺🏻 Our bags are packed, the boy has been on a two and a half hour walk, and we are now waiting at the front door for Matt to get back from the shop with breakfast goodies. #ourhouse  #ourspace  #eastlondonhomes  #interiorexterior  #exteriordesign  #terraceextension  #victorianrenovation  #victorianhouse  #homereno #exteriorspaces  #myhomethismonth  #interior4all #stylishhomevibes #myexteriorvibe #newinteriorsontheblock  #newexteriorsontheblock #whitedecor #interiors_and_living #dailydecordose  #myhomejournal  #myinteriorsquares  #dailydecordetail  #nexttoimpress  #sorealhomes  #storyofmyhome #gardendecor  #exteriorshots
