The smallest room in the house, and the most difficult to photograph! This is the only room that doesn’t have a window, although the door has 2 glass panels (it was repurposed from our old kitchen door and we plan to opaque the glass with window film for privacy, although the room isn’t over looked by any other rooms.) there’s not much light down there because the crittal glass back door isn’t here yet and remains boarded up. Still, I absolutely love it. It was planned very much on the hoof, the only things that were planned in here were the tiled floor (extending from the hall) and the panelling, again to echo the hall. We decided quite last minute to extend the tiles up the back of the wall hung toilet, and played with what to do behind the sink, buying these pink mini hex tiles quite impulsively. And now I love it. All of it. We just need a mirror, the marble sill fitting, and I can’t find a set for the soap and hand cream that doesn’t clash being so close to the rose gold tap, but we will get there! Hope you like it! ❤️ #myhouseandhome #myhousethismonth #realhomesofinstagram #rockininteriors #designmilk #interiormilk #currentdesignsituation #encaustictiles #panelling #modernheritage #rosegoldtap #pinktiles #hexagontiles #cornerofmyhome

Adventurers... ❤️🐒

Hope everyone is having a relaxing Saturday? I’m about to head out for a ‘baby day’ with my mum and sister, looking at baby stuff and a bit of pampering for her 🤰🏻 ❤️ - just about more exciting than the fact that I’m doing it child free! Honestly can’t remember the last time o had a day without both kids and wasn’t working! Thanks @peter_norris for parenting like a boss today! 😘

Why have I never flipped the camera and used the portrait mode for a selfie before? 😍 This baby girl, this second round of motherhood, this summer... so much love ❤️ Don’t mind me, I’m feeling sentimental as I just left Bea at mums for two nights to help out with summer holiday childcare cover. She was a bit wobbly (which I didn’t expect as it wasn’t her first time,) which made me wobbly and now her room feels so empty and the house so quiet. These are the times being a working mum totally sucks. Sending positive vibes and solidarity to all the working mums reading this and no doubt empathising. 💪🏻😥 lets power through to the weekend. 🤛🏻 #motherhoodvibes #acupofmotherhood #motherhoodslens #motherofdaughters #motherhoodunplugged #instamum #mumblogger #workingmomlife #parentingtheshitoutoflife #the_sugar_jar #thesweetlifeunscripted #let_there_be_delight #flashesofdelight #goldenhour

When your friend who is a florist brings you the most beautiful flowers ❤️ they have filled our kitchen with the most beautiful smell. Our sweet pea seedlings died when we were on holiday and the heatwave started so I’m so happy to have these even for a short while.

More from our day out in Liverpool... with all the house work going on, we haven’t done a lot of getting out for the whole day as a family so far this year, and of course it isn’t as easy with two as it was with one. In fact recently I’ve started to wonder how we would manage big trips like the one we made with Bea to Boston, New York and Cape Cod, but today gave me hope. Bea walked all day, Cora was brilliant, and we even managed to stop for spontaneous gin 🙌🏻🙌🏻. That’s more like it!

A day out in Liverpool... we went to do the #terracottatoddler session @worldmuseum_ this morning and haven’t stopped walking since. There are free things to do everywhere and now we have stopped at @tateliverpool for a quick play and to show the kids some modern art! Lots more on stories if you’re interested! #loveliverpool #albertdock #tateliverpool #terracottawarriors #worldmuseum #daysoutwithkids #freeinliverpool #pukkafreestuff #mumblogger #summerholidayactivities #cultureforkids #artbaby

After all the worktop chat I thought maybe I should share my kitchen worktops. These are real Carrara marble and I still absolutely ❤️ them. Now the building work is almost done however... I’m thinking we should update this space. New @dowsingandreynolds handles and a lick of @farrowandball Studio Green perhaps?! 😉 🌱🌿

I have to admit I’ve been somewhat paralysed after the last photo I posted on my grid got so many new likes and followers... 👋🏻 what to post next?! My instagram isn’t just sexy interiors (mine are often completely decimated by kinds or just general untidiness!) but my actual life, the kids, parenting thoughts, fashion, blog stuff. So I hope you find what you like if you’re new here and apologies if you’ve been lured in under false pretences if not 😉😂
Lots of chat over on my stories this evening after I went to view various quartz worktop slabs in search of a proper marble replica, (and I say that because I have real marble worktops so I’m hard to please 😉) but while I was there I spotted this splashback in mottled ages looking mirror glass (I forget the proper name?! 🤷🏻‍♀️) We have been looking for a splashback option for ages that we love and just haven’t found the right think but I’ve seen this on Pinterest... what do you reckon? Anyone got one?

Happy Friday everyone. Whilst the rest of the garden is looking a bit sorry for itself the Hydrangea hedge is still looking absolutely stunning. It’s so easy to create this effect you just need a mass of planting and all blooming together they looking really striking. They’re also really easy. Cut them back in spring then the whole border needs virtually no maintenance all year. We are off to Trentham gardens today so I’ll be gathering inspiration for mid-late summer flowers (read: struggling to keep tabs on two kids in the play areas 😬)
