I am a walking cautionary tale; for many reasons probably, but mostly because I severely lack impulse control when it comes to my home. Example; I don’t even particularly like this print any more and orange is one of my least liked colours, yet I still purchased a large orange glass vase and a baby pink hallway table simply because I could not accept that the timing, availability and the complimentary colours of these items could be anything other than the universe insisting I have them. Who am I to argue with the Devine plan?? 🤣 .

This is not a drill:
I have managed to keep my houseplants alive!
2 whole weeks & they’re not dead🙋🏻‍♀️
Clearly this one is safe because the monkey has been overseeing its health
🍃🐒🖤
Speaking of health: I am having traintrack braces attached today. After 24 months of extensive dental surgery, this is one of the final chapters. I fully intend to spend the rest of the day sulking but as most of you know by now, rest is not my forte.
HAPPY TUESDAY (TOOTHSDAY?)

It took over 3 hours to put together, but I am so happy to have a real couch in our living room. We did a lot of searching and this @lovesac sactional ended up being the best fit for the room. We have a ton of seating now 🤗

Ahhh, all of my Christmas decorating is done & I’m pretty sure I won’t want to take any of it down until at least February! I love how cozy our house feels with all the white lights & Christmas & winter accents. ✨ I’m by no means a pro decorator, but let me know if you want me to do a Christmas home tour, it could be fun, or funny. 😆 Also, check my stories if you want a whole bunch of amazing Christmas-y diffuser blends!

#mumguilt strikes at ANY hour ⏰ .
There’s nothing like FINALLY getting to rest, in quiet, uninterrupted solitude... then BAM 💥 all the open tabs of your brain kick in & your mind races with the seemingly unending list of ‘to-do’... today’s wins & losses... tomorrow’s worries... what if’s...
.
STOP. BREATHE. PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY!
.
Do you have a Routine or System at bedtime for YOU Mama? We talk so much about the kids... but what helps YOU switch off, rest & reset for yourself!?

Slowly but surely I'm making all the hires for the #littleblueinthe502. We still need someone to do the window work and I'm so sad that I can't just restore these decrepit old wooden windows. But budget+priorities like all new plumbing and HVAC (and things like replacing rotted and split joists) mean that for the first time, I'm shopping for vinyl replacement windows. Sigh, #renovationreality

Reposted from @phxarch: Happy Monday from all of us at PHX architecture, we hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend! We wanted to share this stunning image @ericamarie008 took at the Grand Opening of our Napa House project last Wednesday. Whoever buys this home is going to be able to host some incredible parties don’t you think?

Thinking about renovating your home next year? Here are the top four exterior home trends for 2020:

1) Mixing styles and designs—Homeowners are combining influences from popular home styles such as Farmhouse, Mid-Century Modern and Industrial into their exteriors. Consider achieving a hybrid look by mixing siding styles. This home represented by @dennischernov of @chernovteam combines Board & Batten siding with stucco for a high-end Modern Farmhouse look.

2) Dark exteriors—Across the country, darker, more pigmented colors are transforming homes to standout from a sea of beige. Consider darker siding and front door colors (such as black and blue) for added punch.

3) Indoor-outdoor living—With a strong desire to expand living space, homeowners are investing in decks and patios that have a seamless flow from indoor to outdoor. Screened porches with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors are also popular, as well as porch/deck hybrids that can be designed to feature built-in kitchens, fireplaces and seating. SWIPE to see this home's indoor/outdoor space.

4) Minimalist maintenance—Low maintenance is in. Invest in design solutions that require little to no maintenance so you can fully enjoy outdoor living. For example, opt for durable siding materials, composite decking for your porch and back decks, and pavers throughout your landscaping for a low maintenance exterior with high curb appeal.

The halls are officially decked over here and I'm loving how magical our home feels. I mean, how about this spot for the Christmas tree?! The moment I saw these windows, I knew this would be our tree spot. It's so beautiful at night and the neighbors get such a good view of these tree lights! ⁣

I shared the rest of my holiday home tour on the blog today. Come check it out to get in the festive spirit!

Sir Poop, Lord of Klemmshire, welcomes you to the powder room. Because it’s not creepy at all that he stares at you while you do you business, right? Sir Poop has been manning this station all year as he refused to be relegated to the basement with the other Christmas decor peasants.

Do you decorate your bathrooms for Christmas?

Happy Monday! I had every intention of hopping on stories to give y’all the low down on our big sale, but the cold/flu I’ve been battling the last few days finally got the best of me 😩 But, long story short, my sweet Mama is retiring after 30 years as a badass boss babe. I’ll be continuing the shop on my own starting in January, so until then, our entire inventory is massively discounted so I can start the year with a clean slate and all new goodies for the shop. I’m sure flying solo will come with its own set of challenges, but I’m really excited about the future of @nestedsanctuary, and I hope you’ll continue to cheer me on as we make this transition. ❤️*

Can you believe this home office?! It is so open, bright, and elegantly designed. This is the kind of space where remote work meets optimal productivity! @denneenconstruction

Going to start decorating the tree tonight!! It’s a little later than usual but that’s ok! We will enjoy it all the same 🌲✨ — and don’t worry... I have since given up the dream of that little tree fitting in the urn pot. It sits alone now lol I hope you all have a great week! 🤍

Before and after ⬅️➡️ We got a real tree for the kitchen at the weekend 😍 I think I’d be pushing it at a third for this room 😂 So I settled for a garland and some holly gathered out walking 😬 #imustnotbuyanymoregarlands .

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree 🎶 🎄
Luke jokes (I hope😅) that i “suck the colour out of Christmas” 😂😂 now don’t get me wrong - I LOVE Christmas reds and greens and blues and candy stripes etc. But I can never bring myself to buy a ‘colourful’ bauble!
I instead fall in love with every glass/gold/silver/champagne/wooden/white bauble I see... I guess that’s just my thing 😊 I did buy some red berry picks from @therangeuk that I’ve put in the corner off the living room though which I think look lush! .
What attracts you to Christmas decorations? Do you go for colours? Sparkle? Certain themes? I’d love to know! ⬇️

Forgot to take a before picture of this room apart from when it was being used as my stores 🙈😂
Last bedroom to complete was our home office. Had some bespoke cupboard doors made to measure by @djbjoinerybespoke which aren’t pictured here as I’m still yet to fit the handles. 📚 👩‍💻 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

In the first week of Christmas...we have had throat infections, temperatures of 40+, a 'nearly' visit to A & E, upset stomachs, vomiting, cold sores, 2 consecutive weeks off school...but now that the perpetual fog of illness is starting to lift we can turn our thoughts to Christmas once more.
.
This beauty went up last weekend (during the rest bite between one Sparrow recovering only for the other to take ill). The Sparrows picked it with their Dad and I think they chose a gooden'. Well, one tree down, one to go - yep, we are a 2 tree family. Sorry, not sorry! Our hallway was crying out for a tree of its own...everyone said so, honest!
.
Watch this space to see the festive cheer spread to the rest of the house!
