They felt immense reaching up to the ceiling and were everywhere. The bed was embedded in this build-in structure in the centre of the room, […]
Hi, I'm Nicole. Welcome to my blog. I love to make & create things and to research how to improve or change my home. I've set up this blog to share my passion about living beautifully and stylish at home. As an ex TV producer, I used to feature luxury British brands on TV. This blog covers anything from interior design and garden design and displays some of my makeovers always with the idea in mind: How can I achieve great results even on a budget? If you do not want to miss out on any future posts for example how I repurposed something old into something new, then please follow me on my social media platforms.
