Styling the Seasons • February
I am a big fan of Katy's blog. And her Instagram feed and her general love of life.
And I am a HUGE fan of the #stylingtheseasons community hosted by Katy and Charlotte of Lotts and Lots which celebrates the joy of styling a surface in your home. So although I am a month late starting a new year, I am here!
So I thought I'd take you on a mini tour of some of my favourite corners. When you are renovating a house (as I am learning) it takes time, lots of time. And so it's so important to recognise the small areas that you have made your mark on.
We are slowly working our way around the house. We have two rooms downstairs that feel like ours and the boys' room which we've finally finished, but that's it. Everywhere else has patterned wallpaper, holes from old pictures, wonky windows, well those we love so they will stay, and decor from the previous owners.
So here are the nice bits, the pretty bits, my favourite bits.
The light changes all around the house. There are endless corners and ledges and I love to just potter around rearranging the bulb pots and snapping a few photos.
February is filled with fires and signs of the house we fell in love with.
The garden, which was filled with colour when we moved in, is now brown and bare and I have loved picking up little pots of bulbs in the local florist's and watching the buds shoot up. We are planting flowers in the garden and choosing what to seed in the vegetable patch.
Now I am not your green fingered gardener but I am keen to learn!
This weekend we have my brother home from America to celebrate Rich's birthday. We are off to the races on Saturday and are going to soak up time being together since last Summer. We are just missing our sister in law who teaches so had to stay home!
This is when I love the house the most. A house to really live in, to host in, to make memories in.
Now pop over to the Laura Ashley blog to see an inspirational post from the Styling the Seasons gang!
