My Dream Hallway

October 30, 2014

As the major renovations are getting ticked off my list (finally), I have scheduled in a decorator to do our hallway.

Our hallway has very high pitched ceilings in places.  The transition from wall to ceiling tends to be a very clearly defined edge in these situations. However, when our house was built, it must have been fashionable to merge this into a continuing curve.  Making it extremely difficult to decorate as it emphasises the contrast more than normal.  Hence getting in the experts!

That aside, I’ve been putting together some ideas to execute when the time comes.  So let me show you what I’m dreaming about…

Flooring

I am completely head over heels in love with Herringbone flooring at the moment.  Our Stairs and upper hall without a doubt will be carpeted for comfort, but for the downstairs hallway and entrance way I have grand visions of a striking herringbone wooden floor or tiles.

Lighting

After scouting the interior magazines for sometime, I have a great fondness for the industrial style lighting trend.

Windows

We are lucky to have a light bright hallway, thanks to a couple of Velux windows.  They let in so much light.  I want to make the most of the luxury of natural daylight, as our last house had a very dark hallway.  They are however very high up, so I’d love to gadget them up a bit and get a remote for ventilation purposes.

Decor

I am not a fan of clutter, which is difficult with a young family.  However with organised storage spaces and well thought out decor, I’d love to create a ‘wow’ entrance hall.

I can’t wait to act out on my dream hall and make my imagination come to life.

Stay tuned!

Growing Up

It happens all too fast.  I remember at 3 weeks standing in the bathroom thinking, oh my word, how are we going to cope looking after this little person.  But before I know it, you are age 3 going on 13 and own your own chapstick!

Growing up

This week was filled with illness, so I was slumped in bed.  But in you came and brought such a smile to my face with your cheeky patter.  You really made my heart melt  when I spotted you doing your own hair and applying chapstick in the mirror.  I have to admit though, as much as I smiled, my heart sank to realise that you won’t always be my little Munchie Moo.

As always during these magical moments, I didn’t have my proper camera to hand.

You have been pretty wicked as baby girls go.  I have really enjoyed bringing you up.  I just hope that you slow down a little bit, because I love looking after you so much.

Splurge Vs Save | Feather Print Cushion

Cheap Feather Cushion

I seems to have an obsession for cushions at the moment.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’m still stuck firmly in building work and looking at cushions reigns me back in.  With any luck, it won’t be too long before I can buy some cushions!

Feather Print Cushion Splurge

This feather cushion beauty is from John Lewis, as part of their croft collection.  It has a velour backing, so it super soft (love a cushion I can snuggle into).  But if you are anything like me, 1 just isn’t enough. So at a price of £30 each, it could add up.

Feather Print Cushion Save

I couldn’t believe it when I found the save item during a trip round Tesco.  This feather print cushion from Tesco is £10!  So much of a bargain, that they are sold out online, so keep an eye out in your local store.  This cushion has to be the softest cushion I’ve ever felt and for that, it is my favourite this week.

Which do you prefer?
