Sustainable Festive Gift Wrapping – AD

I had the perfect morning yesterday, wrapping presents to the sound of Christmas songs under the tree with all of the fairy lights lit (this seems such a luxurious thing to do when there is only me in the house). I’ve really tried to buy less this year and wrap a little more sparingly but I still enjoy gift giving and making sure those gifts … Continue reading Sustainable Festive Gift Wrapping – AD

Dining Area Makeover Plans

We’re hosting Christmas at ours this year and fancied changing things up a little to make it extra special.

Going back a few years Pinterest was THE obsession for sourcing interior design inspiration. Everyone was using it from business owners to first time homeowners.
