Spotted this pretty little chair in a shop about 6 months, I've been back to the shop probably 5 times since then and it's still been sat there. I couldn't walk away from it again, so (with my mums persuasion) I decided to buy it. It needs a bit of TLC and I've no idea where it's actually going to go but I'm going to love it anyway. I've clearly got a thing for chairs as I've still got my eye on the multiyork yellow chair (see previous post) which is still sat in the showroom. Am I the only person that loves yellow chairs? 😬#yellowchair #oldchair #reupholstery #edwardianhome

Day 18 on #myhouseinaugust and it's COSY day. Whilst it's tempting to post snuggly beds and squishy sofas, to me this is the epitome of cosy. It was taken last night as the clouds were rolling in and the heavens were just about to open. I would love to say I was outside enjoying a g&t but I was actually picking up a dog poo! Either way I was back in there pronto to get cosy (and to pour aforementioned beverage). So much to do on the outside. The whole house needs re rendering but sadly that money tree in the garden just hasn't matured yet!

Might have to go and watch Fight Club or all the Rocky films after hanging this. #wallpaper #edwardianhome #renovation #londonhome #afronttomymanhood

Looking at some pics from last month (Summer apparentely!) is it wrong to be looking foward to the new season, autumnal days and cosy blankets.....plus my favourite time for fashion.....home and clothes! Xx #myhome #myinstahome #myhomestyle #edwardianhome @maison_by_emma_jane

What a dull miserable day 🌧 feeling thankful I just managed to finish the windows before the rain started. Downstairs windows primed with f&b mid tone then 1st coat applied with f&b 'old white'. Managed to fall off the metal chair into the porch grazing my arm, πŸ™„ needless to say not looking forward to getting up the ladder and painting the upstairs windows and wood work πŸ™ˆ πŸ˜‚#farrowandball #countryhome #thomleygrove #renovation #edwardianhome

Would love to paint the front of our house so it looks like this house down the road 😍 just need to persuade our co-freeholder that it's a good idea! #edwardianhome #edwardianrenovation #prettyhouse

Neptune I loved you!!!! Had a little stop off on way home today......only bought a few things. Back home now candles and lamps lit first pile of washing in. So nice to be home xxπŸ’• #edwardianhome#fabholiday#nicetobehome#neptuneyork#myfavouriteplace#

Wot no fleurs? πŸ˜‚ This morning I was inspired by the lovely @the_reluctant_townie who posted a photo of the beautiful corbel in her Edwardian home, so I thought I'd do the same. These in the hallway and a deep cornice in the front room are pretty much the only period details in my Edwardian terraced home. It's a very modest house so I imagine it was largely built "no frills" so to speak! These corbels were coated in about 30 layers of paint when we bought the house 😬 and you couldn't see any of the moulding. It took days and days to soak all the paint off to reveal the detail. Glad I did though. Anyone else care to share? #showusyourcorbels πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #edwardianhome #perioddetails #smalltownterrace

So the new job afyer the kids go to bed is playing with acid. This feels like a labour of love. #edwardianhome #londonhome #encaustictiles #terriblydisfiguringacidburns

Very much still a work in progress but not bad for one man in a day! It's already made such a huge difference in regards to the amount of light it lets through. Can't wait to rip out that hideous kitchen! #diy #renovation #kitchen #building #kitchendesign #wall #edwardianhome #workinprogress #homeblog #homedecor

I am an expert in procrastination. I have totally avoided doing all of the things on my must do list and instead I opted to complete that really unimportant, rearrange all of the frames on the stairs job. Feeling most pleased with myself as it looks less contrived now. So many miniatures to source now though. #periodhome #periodhomestyle #periodhouse #hall #grandfatherclock #taxidermy #edwardian #edwardianhome #edwardianstyle #edwardianhouse #myhomevibe #myhomestyle #myhousestyle #interior #interiorstyle #interiordecor #stillnotgotroundtothepanelling

Step one for having an open plan kitchen/dining room... get a lovely builder to come round and knock a wall down πŸ πŸ”¨ I loved the open plan space in my old house - it made for a more sociable living area and, although not strictly a period detail, I think it will be an improvement #openplan #kitchen #kitchendesign #renovation #oldhouse #edwardianhome #dusty #building #workinprogress

Monday's theme is light it up so I'm sharing my kitchen pendant lights.... I made them more interesting by adding a chain and ceiling rose from Heals.... a small but big feature...overall photo is of our beautiful kitchen extension which was 6 months of blood, sweat and tears... especially when you still live there and then also get 3 other rooms done! #myhouseinaugust #lightitup #homeinteriors #actualinstahomes #mystylishspace #stylistsrevamps #edwardianhome #kitchenextension #renovation #interiorstyling #apartmenttherapy #lighting #kitchenisland #sassyhomestyle #myhomevibe #styleithappy #grey #industriallighting #industrialstyle

You never get a second chance to make a first impression - heaven alone knows what the original gates told passers-by😱We had to wait 6 months for planning due to nearby tree roots, but worth the wait. #firstimpressions #oakgates #gates #oak #driveway #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #houserenovation #kerbappeal #renovation #beforeandafter #slatesign

Sunday is the day of Sofa! Time to get comfy. This sofa is from Sofa.com and they're absolutely brilliant - huge choice of shapes and sizes with a massive range of fabrics. This is the Bluebell sofa in Elephant Matt Velvet. .

Going away is awesome but I am so happy to be back to my own bed. Especially now that the drapes are up!!! This bed, dressed as it is, is an absolute dream come true for me. In 2004 the other half decided to propose and secretly booked us into the honeymoon suite in a hotel in Edinburgh, which had the most incredible Georgian windows and ceiling and an equally epic four poster bed. I fell in love with that room; the bed, the drapes the colours and I vowed that one day I'd get me my very own honeymoon suite. Waking up in this bed is sheer bliss. It's like reliving that weekend over again.....if only I could convince the husband to buy me some more diamonds πŸ˜‚ #fourposterbed #kingofbeds #bedofkings #periodhome #periodhomestyle #masterbedroom #edwardian #edwardianhome #edwardianstyle #edwardianhouse #ballyholme #mystyle #myhomevibe #interior #interiorstyle #interiordecor #farrowandballpaint #frenchgrey #bedroomgoals #bedroomdecor #ilovemyhome #dreamcometrue #bedofdreams

Sunday notice: always be kind to yourself and others πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I have not felt myself lately, immobile from a knee injury. Three weeks on crutches so not much {nothing 😬} has happened on my part on the renovation recently, this summer has been quite frustrating to say the least. To my surprise, Charlie {he loves a surprise, as @rvk_loves knows ☺️} cheered me up so much with a little bag of goodies from one of my favourite brands @fatface πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ absolute dream, tassels and all! I'm a lucky girl, we look after each other's mental health, and that one beautiful gesture has relieved all my angst from the last three weeks and made me feel human again. It just shows that whatever is bringing you down there is always someone/something great that can bring your outlook right back up again. Find those positive vibes πŸ™ŒπŸΌ [disclaimer: positive vibes are not only found at the shops, they can be free too!] 😘

In my head I have just spent about 100k on home improvements in 20 minutes reading πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ #homerenovation #homerenovations #myhome #edwardian #edwardianhome #edwardianstyle #extention #kitchenimprovements #newbathroom #homeideas #landscapegardening #bifolddoors #wishlist #getsaving

I'm fast becoming a houseplant addict especially when there are so many pretty baskets to put them in! 😍🌡🌿 .

Sunday feels πŸ’™ It's sometimes hard to relax at home when the list of jobs is never ending...Having said that, Sunday's are not the day for chores - so we're having a day off the diy, enjoying a relaxing morning then walking the dogs. The husband might even bring me a coffee in bed, hey @camstergrams? Any chance?!
What are you guys up to? X

#myhouseinaugust today is relax..... as much as I totally hate our main bathroom and can't wait to have it ripped out, it does have a really comfy big bath πŸ›€. So treating myself to a wee relax this morning while everyone else is still asleep 😊
