Why, hello there!

Remember me? Apparently I’m the person who’s supposed to update this here blog on a semi-regular basis.

Turns out I’m not that good at it.

But I think we all knew that.

I never planned to disappear for four months (and I’m sorry for my unexplained absence – thanks so much to everyone who reached out). But I guess lock-downs can do that.

With stores shut and house calls off limits, it’s fair to say that I just kinda gave up…on blog projects that is. During our previous lock-downs I was able to summon the motivation to keep creating despite the obstacles, but this time around it just felt all too hard.

Not that I’m whining. Life in general went on of course, with its usual spattering of both good and bad days. We went on long walks and had early dinners, watched late night movies and slept in, cried about math being too hard and our house being too small. But overall we remembered to be grateful.

Although projects were always whirring around in my head, I just didn’t have the inclination to put them in my hands…until now!

With the lock-down having lifted, life is almost back to normal. And top of my list is helping my brother with the bedroom makeover he requested back in June!

Here’s his space before…




Pretty sure I can’t make it look much worse.

And here are a few of the pieces I’m working with…

Some $4.78 wall lights!…

Light Before

You might remember that I used one of these lights in a client’s living room earlier this year. But I bought it at full price back then. $4.78 is just insane!

These vintage director’s chairs I picked up for $20 from Marketplace…

And these bedside tables from eBay

I actually started this room refresh last week and will be able to post the result in the coming days! Very excited to be creating (and sharing) again.

Thanks so much to everyone who is still here.

Now just to remember where that ‘publish’ button is…
