Our home

A few weeks ago I posted on our new tiles in our kitchen and how they'd made such a difference to our pretty cheapo Ikea units.

So I thought it was about time I posted a few more pictures of our house since the renovation last year.
I think part of the reason I've been so reluctant to put pictures up is that, as all projects go, ours is still a work in progress and the 1970s caramel bathroom suite is definitely testament to that. But, as my mother keeps reminding me, I'm not sure we'll ever really be fully-finished so here are a few of my favourite bits of our place!

In case you might be interested, the jars are Ikea, the jar labels are Dille and Kamille, the heart milk jug is Emma Bridgewater, and the toaster is Dualit.

The ceramic tiles are Rob Ryan, the cook books are Jamie Oliver, Donna Hay and Bill Granger.

Vintage vase, and candle holder by Emma Bridgewater again.

The Barcelona chair is a copy, the Roger Moore print was Getty Images, and the lamp was TK Maxx.

The blue glass wave vase was my Granma's and some of my favourite books.

The Italian advertising print was from our honeymoon in Italy, the lamp is very cheap Asda [!], the sofa is Laura Ashley, and the cushion from Designer's Guild, the small ceramic lamp was BHS.

A vintage Vogue cover with some pictures of my Granma Betty and her sister Beryl.

This our guest bedroom, the print is from the National Railway Museum, the anglepoise was £3 from a boot sale, and the bedside table was from a charity shop and I changed the handles.

Another cute vintage travel poster from the National Railway Museum.

The 60s mirror was a few pounds from a charity shop, the lamp was Red Direct, and the vintage perfume bottles are all Liberty.

My striped carpet runner and favourite bargain-find, my £8 reclaimed door, and Red Direct stripy dog.

A Rob Ryan card in an Ikea frame.

Laura Ashley and Designers Guild again, with a vintage foot stool with hand embroidered tapestry top.
