I often used to post about little DIY projects I would complete at home, but it’s literally been years since I last did something creative! But a couple of weeks ago I got my creative mojo back and decided I wanted to give this lovely French style bedside table (from Out There Interiors) a little make over. It’s been in my dressing room for 18 months with bare, raw wood and heavy metal drawer pulls. I quite liked the natural finish, but it didn’t really fit in with the rest of the decor. I decided to give it a lick…

Pretty copper homeware in metallic and gold tones are still a hot trend, often alongside a marble background. I’m a bit late to the whole thing, but luckily Red Candy have come to my rescue and now I have officially jumped on the bandwagon. And I’m not ashamed to confess my new love for copper homeware accessories and pineapples!  Copper Homeware Accessories  Gold Pineapple Candle Holder Possibly my favourite new addition is this tropical gold pineapple, which is actually a candle holder that would probably hold a tealight, but I’ve been using it purely for aesthetic purposes! It’s the perfect…

Easter is one of my favourite times of year because it signifies that summer is on its way (and all the spring bank holidays), and also just because I love the pretty things! Easter and spring is the season for pretty pastel colours and polka dots, and over the years I’ve picked up a few pretty home decorations specifically for this time of year. I also love Easter baking, and me and my Mum make the traditional Maltese Easter biscuit called figolli (large iced almond biscuits) every year! Making these yummy little chocolate Easter nests is easy. I simply melted…

I always enjoy putting together a wishlist post as there’s nothing I love more than a bit of window shopping! In this wishlist I have put together some of my favourite home accessories that I have spotted online which are all copper or marble themed. Copper homeware accessories are a big trend this season and although I’m pretty late on the old bandwagon, I think it will be around for quite a whole! I love the fresh white look of the marble and the stylish gold accents, the two go so nicely together. Copper Homeware Accessories  Marble Base Table Lamp…

Over the years I have managed to collect quite a few cake stands! I used to do a lot of baking and often used the stands for the cakes I baked.  Although I don’t bake much any more unfortunately, I do still make use of the cake stands I have accumulated. In fact I have had two of them in my bedroom for years, both of which I use daily. My Cath Kidston Cake Stands These two ceramic cake stands are from Cath Kidston which I bought over 5 years ago when I was still a student. They were a…

I always put up a few Christmas decorations around the room so I thought I’d do a little tour of my vintage dressing room before I take all the pretty festive bits down. This room used to be the ‘spare room’ but my parents let me transform it into my own little dressing room a few years ago. I decorated it using Laura Ashley wallpaper and picked out all the shabby chic furniture, and now I use it to store my pretty things and it has also become my ‘blog room’. Vintage Dressing Room The main feature of the room…
