I have always loved being a homemaker, I am not sure how good I am but I do love being at home, making it somewhere special, homely and cosy, our nest for our little ones. It was how I was brought up really my mum loved her home, my parents abode is a true reflection of how stylish my mum was, as a little girl I remember coming home from school and she had moved furniture and pictures around my dad was forever repainting the walls! And she was always buying new cushions! I certainly follow in my mums footsteps I also have a fetish for cushions!!
We brought our victorian semi back in 2007 and moved in just two months after we got married, we were a bit naive about how much work it needed but we are getting there! It holds so many amazing memories for us, it has been the party house and is now very much a family home. It is our children's first home and we have tried to make it a place they will grow to love, I can tell George already loves being at home he will often say when we are are out and about that he wants to go back to number 7! We have had some lovely times with my family in our little abode, my mum loved it she really enjoyed to walk into town with me when George was a baby and we would go to the shops and have tea and cake and talk about plans. I have had some amazing times with my sister lots of late night drinking and some wonderful festive and new year gatherings! I have a bond with this house it may sound a little silly to people who don't get sentimental about bricks and mortar but I certainly do, it is definitely my comfort zone although I do know its not our forever house we will have another one one day, but we do plan to be here a while yet at least until the children have got through school. We will continue to nurture, love and look after it along the way, we have lots of plans I want to makeover our bedroom and a major mission being our summer house my studio/office!
For now I will share with you a few images and there will be more to follow soon from George and Tilly's room and my bedroom wish list!
Our bedroom is in need of a make over so I will be working on a mood board soon, although this is a treasured piece of furniture!
