Multi Colour Choices Bring Cheer Back Home

For the last few years there has been a generally grim, grey and black side to home decor and furnishings.  Every single advertisement in a magazine would involve a suite in some sort of grey, or black with grey.  I seriusly began to wonder if we’d entered a dark period in social history.  I personally […]

Classy Relatives – Holidaying In Style

I have been staying away from home with some relatives.  It was absolutely fab as they have a really gorgeous house and have been very selective over their choice of furniture and effects.  Nothing too loud or bulky – very pale colours to keep the light airy nature of the house pure.  The carpet is […]

Updated On Furnishings To Modernise Home

Oh how this grim very wet weather is making everyone feel tetchy and bad tempered.  Down the town this morning I noted that folk were getting upset over the smallest little thing – in shop doorways and in the supermarket car park.  We are always more relaxed and happier in nature when the weather is […]

First Home Filled With Pre Loved Easy Chairs

When you move from your parents’ place out to your first flat or lodgings, you generally get whatever happens to be in that room when you rent.  Can be pretty ghastly on the whole.  After a wee while you gather the strength and finance to move on up to a house of your own.  Furniture […]

A Oak Wood Table By Any Other Name

In the last few days I have found myself wandering around various out of town furniture emporiums.  A close relative is in the middle of a rather long winded house move and whilst they await the return of their conveyancing solicitor to finish the deal etc, we thought a spot of inspirational ‘window’ shopping wouldn’t […]

Tinkling glasses being carefully carried around the guests – the champers fizzing nicely and the guests mingling trying to balance small plae with canapes in one hand, glass of fizz in the other and shake hands with a newly introduced guest at the same time.  No wonder there can be a problem with furniture needing […]

Bonfire Party Pooch Panics Cause Havoc

Ahha, the bright lights of a bonfire party – lots of folk wandering in and out of the house.  The carpet’s taking a right pasting, that’s for sure.  But at least everyone is having a really good time.  The first bonfire party held here for some years I think.  Getting rather fed up with the […]

Desperately Missing Neutrals For Colour

Halloween time comes around very quickly here  – lots of families with children who eagerly embrace fads and are suckers for the advertising overload.  Immediately after the summer holidays, we have the start of the Christmas ones and these include one or two variants.  I was amaed to find on leading furniture megastore had somehow […]

Moving Nightmares Need Injection Of Joy

I know a young couple who are in the middle of a nightmare moving situation.  They were thrilled when their selling agent phoned and said Mr. X was putting an offer on their house, the very same evening that the first two viewings had taken place.  They already have a place to buy – the […]
