Day 8 @storyofmyhome - glitter @myhousethismonth - pets at home You've probably realised we have 3 pets at home. All of the feline variety. They like to get in my insta snaps even if it does mean pricking their nose on holly and generally feature on most of the outtakes...might add a few to stories.... I love them all dearly and despite the cat hair, filthy marks on my white, white company bedding, grubby paws, random howling and crying in the night and peeing in inappropriate places, I wouldn't have the house without them. Must be a softy. Here the tree is glittering in the background.
We are off to meet some friends in York for a festive lunch today so I need to get a move on. Have a gorgeous Sunday pals 🌟
Feeling quite proud of my first little craft project (as a grown-up anyway). All it took was a gold craft hoop from @etsyuk (thanks @idealhomeuk for the idea), a bunch of eucalyptus from the market, a couple of pine cones, a piece of ribbon and some gold wire to secure it all in place. In total it came in at under £10, which was cheaper than even the cheapest wreaths I’ve seen in the shops.
All I need now is to paint our front door in a more instagrammable colour. Wish me luck convincing John about that one!
RESEARCH // _ “Can the design of student accommodation have an impact on student mental health and wellbeing?” _ Dr. Sarah the psychologist @studiogreyproperty and I met over #instagram as we shared a passion to improve the design and delivery of accommodation which can support student (and others) mental health and wellbeing. _ Our research will be going live early next year when we engage with students across a number of universities to find out their experiences of student accommodation. ____________ Research findings will help to educate accommodation providers, (students and otherwise) raise the standards of accommodation offered and influence future policy on accommodation standards. ____________ Everyone deserves a space to call home which supports their mental health and wellbeing and ultimately their happiness. ____________ Watch this space as the research journey unfolds! _________________________________________ #designedforwellbeing@fatproperties
Happy Sunday! We had a lovely day in Somerset yesterday catching up with the family.
Today we are taking our daughter to a Christmas party which my husband’s work put on every year for all employees’ children, it’s always a lovely afternoon.
Today’s post is the wreath I made for the lounge fireplace. To be honest it hasn’t really turned out quite as I expected and I think I may have overbaubled but hey it’s sparkly so it’s going up anyway 🤣

Really late one from me but it’s been such a busy day, usual clubs for the girls this morning and then we had a visit to Santa followed by friends round for dinner & drinks. Absolutely shattered after my late one yesterday babysitting but thoroughly worth it. Quick catch up on what I’ve missed today and then slumberland 😌😴Day 7 @myhousethismonth (through the glass)
18 days till Christmas guys 😳 I feel like there’s still a lot to do but so little motivation lol especially since we are on day 4 of the flu, but we are finally starting to get better 🙌🏼 we have a little project we were wanting to do this weekend but with us feeling icky we won’t get much done so we will just wait 😊
Fa, la, la! Progress has been made on the mantle. This season is the mantle's best season, it really glows up!
First tree is up next to ‘new this year’ igloo! 😆 I’m trying to make it extra festive because we miss Oscar so much. 😔 Today we had so much fun and it felt really Christmassy and most of the house is now looking like Santa’s grotto. 🌲✨
Day 7 @myhousethismonth - through the glass @storyofmyhome - mistletoe and wine Sadly I'm not drinking this wine and I'm actually working (at home) so no time for a lengthy caption other than to say we had a lovely day seeing Santa @rhsharlowcarr and a chilled out family afternoon at home. Hope your Saturday has been gorge and hope you are drinking wine and aren't working!
Had such a lovely day today. Football training then the footy team and parents Christmas bowling night 🎳. I came second on our lane so not a bad result when I just chuck and hope for the best 😆
Just poured myself a glass of red for a chilled evening. We just finished watching take me out always make me laugh. A picture taken from outside the front tonight it’s staring to get cold so inside for cozy time 🎄My mistletoe this year is faux as I worry for my four legged friends that they don’t eat it xx . . . .
INVESTOR PROJECT // _ It was a real joy to work on this project with our London based investors. _ This was their first foray into property investing, to create a secure financial future for their family. _ We extended this house under permitted development to create additional bedrooms and bathrooms which has added a lot of value for them and provides a secure cash flow. _ Working with investor clients allows us to build the FAT Properties portfolio to create a much needed new breed of student housing. _ But it’s just the first step of many- we’re on the hunt for the next project for them to keep building their portfolio. _ #designedforwellbeing@fatproperties
#myhousethismonth DAY 7 • THROUGH THE GLASS • Through the glass is a little something that I enjoy a wee bit too much every Christmas - Baileys Irish Cream 😍
Fresh bedding and all to myself tonight 🙌🏻🙌🏻 . After a trip to the demon dentist on Monday, I’ve had the week from hell 😩 What should have been a relatively straightforward procedure with a specialist resulted in me looking like a lopsided hamster, who’s stuffed in the entire family shop but just down one cheek. I cannot even describe the pain I’ve been in, I didn’t sleep for 72 hours and after getting through every painkiller I could get my hand’s on and two visits back to the dentist I finally got some antibiotics on Thursday. So after paying out a small fortune to save my tooth from extraction, it’s now looking like I might have to lose it now anyway 🤦♀️ Currently not able to think about putting myself through though as today is the first day I’ve felt more like myself, which is a good job as I’m solo parenting whilst the hubs is out celebrating his birthday. So tonight I’m looking forward to feet up, chick flick and ice cream ❤️ No booze 😱 Which is unheard of on a Saturday night! I’ve still not fully deflated but on the plus side a diet of soup, mashed potato & prescription drugs and I’m half a stone lighter than I was this time last week, every cloud and all that! . Soo that’s 6 less days to get organised for Christmas, anyone else still got a shit tonne to do? .
One of my favourite ornaments ❤️ Last November whilst in Disneyland it was very Christmassy, and Jay & I got ornaments of our favourite movies. I of course got The Fox & The Hound, which sits on a shelf oh display, and Jay got Pinocchio ❤️ Surprisingly it’s the only Disney ornament we currently have on the tree... but I plan to change that by next year 😏 What’s your favourite Disney movie?🍿👇🏻
Who needs mistletoe when the wine is flowing 🙊 ➡️ our Christmas table from a couple of years ago, we had no decorations up last year, due to the x2 weddings and house move 🤦🏻♀️ What style and/theme to do this year 🤔 Hope you your are all having a lovely Saturday evening 🖤
Hello 👋 from the misletoe (garland) and wine! 🤣 Thought I would finally show my face on here and let you know a bit more about me... I'm Eve and I live here with my son Harry. We moved from Glasgow in 2017 and stayed in Dundee for a brief stint while looking for a house in Crieff. Before Harry I worked in domestic abuse support in a variety of roles and loved my job! It was emotionally intensive though and having a break from working made me re-evaluate what I'd like to do. I've always been into Interiors and even when I worked In a women's refuge I loved when the flats needed updated or staging them for new families to move in. (Not an official part of the role 🤣) it's incredibly hard to leave your home when leaving an abusive relationship and i think how you feel about where you live is important, the small touches make all the difference...so it was not all from a place of vanity! 😊
So. Do you ever choose a room in your house to share that you know will bomb? This is that room for me. And I don't really get it because I kinda love this room. It's where I've gone the least crazy but is still full of my hacks and upcycled shizz. The headboard is made from the fronts of two old speaker cabinets. The bedside table is a basic IKEA model that I've added marble contact paper and cane webbing to. The lamp is a standard paper deal I've dolly partoned with a million yards of green fringe. I upholstered the bed base in silk and refinished the floor by hand. And yet. Every time I post it the response is pretty meh. Expectations are a funny old thing. Why do I expect other people to love this room of mine as much as I do? It's full of investment for me, but for you, the viewer, its got none of that emotional freight. Its just a picture amongst a sea of pictures. Like my small account is just one of thousands. I didn't know what to expect when I joined Instagram. I low key thought I'd be a smash sensation because I got jokes. Turns out jokes aren't high on the wish list for interiors accounts. Nor is shaky photography with poor composition done on a phone that's been dropped repeatedly. Or sailor mouthed captions. Go figure. One thing I really did not expect was to fall in love so comprehensively with so many people. To be invited into their lives and made a valued guest. This is a great gift. Better than thousands of followers or sponsorship or ad/gifts or collaborations or winning prizes. It's the ultimate prize of being treated as family. So thanks for your faces, which as previously stated are loved by me. #interiorrebellion #thriftyview #itsprobablythrifted #thriftmas #ecofriendlychristmas #diyhomedecor #retrohauls #myeclecticshack #caretoshareyourfeed #sharing_creatives #interiormilk #greathomestaketime #walltowallstyle #sassyhomestyle #thiscreativehome #housefolkcollective #mycolourfulinterior #crashbangcolour #styleitreal #mycreativeinterior #ikeaatmine #sorealhomes #irishinteriors #smallaccountbiglove #mydarkhome #upcycledhome
Our latest home project — our very first mural! 👨🏻🎨🏠👩🏻🎨 This was so fun to work on. We knew when we moved into this space that we wanted to make use of our super high walls/ceilings. Lots of doodling and playing around later, this is where we landed. Inspired by the desert + southwest ✨ first of many more I’m sure 🤗
