Did I even go away on holiday? It seems like years ago and yet this time last Friday we were having tapas and a few vino tinto’s, how weird is that? Anyway in true Friday spirit I’m lighting the fire, opening a bottle of red and I’m making seafood spaghetti for dinner who’s in? . . . . #scandinavianstyling #hyggehome #hyggelife #nordicstyling #smallmomentsofcalm #interiordesign #interiormilk #realhomesofinstagram #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #minimalhome #minimalhomedecor #mydarlingminimal #inspirationforstylishliving #roominspo #myscandihome #whywhiteworks #whitedecoration #whitedecoration #lovemyrenovation #victorianhouserenovation

This time last year everything was all wrapped up and organised and I even knitted cushions for pressies. This year is another story, I’m not stressing though because I’m buying less, not going crazy with the decs and looking forward to a relaxing time at home with the family because after all that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? . . . . . #interiordesign #weeklyinteriorinspo #botanical #interiordecor #cornerofmyhome #nordicstyling #scandinavianstyling #roomforinspo #inspirationforstylishliving #interiorstyling #simplicity #nestleandhygge #hyggehome #whiteinterior #smallmomentsofcalm

According to colour psychology, White is the purest and most complete colour it represents goodness, simplicity, clarity and innocence. White also represents new beginnings and is said to remove any traces of the past which is perfect when renovating an old house like mine. There are so many shades of white though and some can look clinical and cold, choosing the right one has certainly helped create a calm feeling throughout my home. What colours would you choose to create your calm space? . . . . . #smallmomentsofcalm #calmspaces #inspirationforstylishliving #minimalhouse #minimalmoments #mydarlingminimal #nestleandhygge #stylingtheseasons #hyggelife #onmytable #petalsandprops #whywhiteworks #colourpsychology

Hello lovelies I’m back from a much needed break away with the family and I’m refusing to let the holiday blues creep in here. Totally embracing Hygge, writing my Christmas to do list and enjoying feeling cosy with this fabulous chunky knit blanket that arrived courtesy of @nordichouse . Its 100% wool, very soft and one cheeky little French Bulldog has got his eye on it already! He’s trying to make me feel guilty and bribe me because I left him at home. Who else’s dog sulks when you’ve been away? . . . . . . #hyggelife #hyggehome #smallmomentsofcalm #nestleandhygge #nestandthrive #minimalmoments #mydarlingminimal #interiormilk #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #inspirationforstylishliving #stylingtheseasons #chunkyknitblanket #giantknitblanket #scandihome #scandistyle #gifted #nordichouse #mystoryoflight

Brrrr it’s really chilly out there isn’t it, I think winter is officially here and on my walk last night I saw a Christmas tree in someone’s window 😳. Now I have to admit I’ve got two Christmas trees so far, one is mine and the other one belongs to @mackenzie_lian (hers is called Carl)! They were in a closing down sale at Homebase last week and they were too pretty and too reasonable not to get. Anyway they’re in pots and they’re outside with no lights or tinsel because it’s November. Can we talk about when exactly is the right time to put up a Christmas tree? I was always told it should be up twelve days before and twelve days after Christmas, is this right or have you got yours up already? . . . . #smallmomentsofcalm #sashwindows #viewfrommywindow #thesewindows #lovemyrenovation #minimalhome #myhyggehome #hyggelife #minimalmoments #momentslikethese #throughmywindow #chasinglight #mystoryoflight #theartofslowliving #thesimpleeveryday #hyggehome

I’m thinking soft linen Roman blinds and a soft pendant light in here. Keeping it plain and simple with layers of tones and textures. Less is more, right? . . . . . #whywhiteworks #prettywindows #pocketofmyhome #lessismore #thesimpleeveryday #theartofslowliving #inspirationforstylishliving #interiormilk #interiorinspo #interiors4you #thosewindows #sashwindows #smallmomentsofcalm #lovemyrenovation #minimaldecor #minimalhome #minimalmoments

The bathroom is up and running now and the decorating should be finished today, so we’ll be moving to our bedroom up the monochrome stairs very soon. I do have a problem though, I got this pendant shade for our room originally but it found a new home here, so the master bedroom is lightless 🤦‍♀️. Forever changing my mind about stuff are you? . . . . . #whywhiteworks #minimaldecor #pocketofmyhome #interiormilk #myminimalhome #minimal_perfection #hyggehome #hyggelife #interiore #interiorinspo #interiors4you #inspirationforstylishliving #homeinspo #cornersofmyhome

I’m starting to unpack some more boxes in the house this weekend and there’s going to be two piles “keep it” and a “cull it” because I’m determined not to put things away that I don’t want or use anymore. For the sentimental stuff I’m going to make a memories box and for lamps and pieces I don’t have room for in the house I’m going to sell them or give them to a charity shop. Having a good old sort out and a de clutter is good for the soul, right? . . . . . #inspirationforstylishliving #interiore #interiormilk #interiorismo #interiors4you #interiorinspo #petalsandprops #underthefloralspell #smallmomentsofcalm #pocketofmyhome #cornerofmyhome #calledtobecreative #minimalmoments #minimalhome #mystoryoflight

This old headboard was my Dads, and since my decision to only intentionally buy things that we need or use for our new home it will be perfect for our guest bedroom. I love mixing old with new especially when they hold sentimental value. Do you have things in your home that you’d never part with? . . . . . . #whywhiteworks #interiormilk #interiorismo #interiorinspo #mynordichome #myscandihome #minimalhome #minimaldecor #minimalmoments #minimal_perfection #mydarlingminimal #mystoryoflight #inspirationforstylishliving #smallmomentsofcalm #trashistreasure #pocketofmyhome #interiors4you

It’s Sunday and it’s raining so my plan is to have a slow one with cups of coffee and contemplate making home. We should have the hob and oven up and running next week and the plumbing is all getting finished tomorrow whoop whoop. I never thought I’d be so excited to have a kitchen sink and fully working bathrooms but I am, because it’s been a struggle living in the house without them and next week I’ll definitely be cooking Sunday roast and looking forward to it. It’s always the simple things in life that make us happy isn’t it? . . . . . . #interiore #interiormilk #nestandflourish #petalsandprops #petalperfection #onmytabletoday #slowsundays #simplystyleyourspace #simpleauthenticbeautiful #inspirationforstylishliving #minimalmoments #smallmomentsofcalm #floralfix #underthefloralspell

Wow what a whirlwind day that was, but we’re actually making progress. Finally the worktops have been fitted today and I’m so pleased with them, I’ve just popped a sneaky peek over on my stories if you fancy a nosey. So how’s your day been? . . . . . . #nestleandhygge #nestandflourish #nestandthrive #smallmomentsofcalm #momentslikethese #minimalmoments #inspirationforstylishliving #lifeofaninteriordesigner #lifestyled #interiormilk #interiorismo #interiors4you #interiorinspo #interiore #myhyggehome #hyggelife #hyggehome #stylingtheseasons
