Nice or nasty?

I am hoping to have good news on the house front very, very soon. 

We have been renting since December and because it’s always been a temporary measure I have had to hold myself back and resist buying anything house related.

But now I am starting to turn my attention to what our (fingers and toes crossed) future home might look like and what we could do with it.

I spotted this little low sideboard which is from The Family Love Tree on Instagram earlier…

  
 …and immediately clicked on the heart icon. If you read my blog, you know I love a spot of colour. 

The Family Love Tree is Australia based so I started hatching a plan for a masking tape IKEA hack.

Here’s another photo:

  
I duly sent it to my sister for her thoughts who replied ‘maybe a bit much?’

So I thought I’d ask you lot. Is this nice or nasty?

Decorating with stripes

I’ve been drooling over some gorgeous black and white interiors on Instagram, mostly from ultra cool Scandinavians. Now I love a spot of colour, but I am seriously obsessing over monochrome at the moment.
