Summer Home Improvements

*Collaborative post.

Summer is always a great time for home improvements. The sunshine and longer days make you feel like you have more time to play with, and with the lockdown, we had so much time. We made the most of the extra time spent at home by doing some summer home improvements. We have been really busy working on our house and I am impressed with how much work we have done already. Prior to the home improvements, our house was looking pretty tired. We have been in our house for over 7 years now and we haven’t really devoted time to redecorating since we moved. I switch things up here and there, but nothing extreme until this summer.

Before this big home redecoration, the most we ever did was to get new curtains and blinds a while ago. The Yorkshire Fabric Shop is a great store to shop for fabrics for blinds, curtains, so it is worth looking on their website for fabric furnishing ideas. We also decorated the children’s room some years ago and we do get new home furniture every now and again. However, this is the first time we went all out in home decoration.

Plastering and Painting

The first thing we started off with was plastering and painting. We only just finished painting the whole house some weeks ago. M did it all and it was a lot of work. We opted to use the same colour to keep things simple, and the cream paint and white doors work so no need to change it.

Redecorating the Children’s room

The kiddies got new beds. They have outgrown their toddler beds, so we decided to go for single beds for them. They love them and the single beds look great. I love the fact that they come with some storage to store extra bits neatly. You can never have too much storage. The twins also got some new bedroom furniture and a reshuffling of their bedroom. The redecoration has given the room a new look. It looks brand new!

Deep Summer Cleaning

We were able to deep clean the house. Since we were moving furniture about, we got the golden opportunity to clean so many corners and spots we haven’t been able to reach in years. It was so amazing to give the whole house a good deep clean.

Grey Interior Decor for Living Rooms

*PR samples and Affiliate Links.

When it comes to interior decor, like most things; I always go for quality over quantity. Clutter makes my head ache, so I like my living spaces with as little furniture as possible. I only go for items that are pretty and useful, and those that would allow me keep the space clutter free. A well decorated living room is always liked and admired by many. There is nothing like entering a living room, and every furniture is in the right place. Attention to detail is everything when it comes to interior decor.

The grey shade is a popular neutral colour for interior decor. It is one of my favourite shades when it comes to balancing our a room with neutral tones. Here are 3 great grey decor items for living rooms –

 

 

Grey Cushions

Updating your living room with cushions is cheap and easy. If you are after spicing up with your living room interiors with a small budget, go for updating your cushions in the right colours and design. I currently have my eye on this Grey Velvet Cushion by Baytree Interiors. The cushions come in a good size – 45X45cm, and price – currently on sale for £15.16 at the time of writing.

I love the velvet material, it is so luxurious and looks great for modern or contemporary living rooms. The cushions come in other colours as well – Navy Blue, Pink, Teal, Orange, Mustard, Emerald and Aubergine, if you prefer some brighter colour.

AmazonBasics Heat Insulating Blackout Curtain

I love grey curtains and this AmazonBasics Heat Insulating Blackout curtain is a great decor option. I love the fact that it is blackout. That is great for the current season, as the last thing I need is to wake up when the sun comes out. They are great for bedrooms and living rooms as they help keep the sunlight out.

The shade is perfect if you are after a neutral look, and the price is even more perfect at £27.99 for 168X137. I love it!

Introducing Eves Interiors For Designing and Styling Any Space

Interior design is close to my heart, which is why I write about it quite a bit on Fashion and Style Police. I like it when a house or office is well designed and styled with the right decor. Designing a space does not come naturally to many of us. I know I struggle sometimes with what to do with some parts of our house. Well, this where the professionals come in. Today, I am introducing Eves Interiors. It is a new Interior Designing company run by a lovely lady who knows her stuff when it comes to making the most of every space. All the pictures here are spaces designed by Eves Interiors.

Eves Interiors

Here is a quick message from the brand –

Eves Interiors was birthed from my love and passion for design. I love being able to put a home together from scratch. I love designing and styling any space. It literally gives me joy to see a once empty, bland space come together beautifully.

I have a passion for designing home and office spaces and sourcing for decor for the home and/or office space.

I design bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, kids nursery, office spaces and kitchen and dining areas.

Designing and Sourcing Services

I love it when a brand is passionate about what they do. It says a lot about the quality of work they would deliver. I have worked with Eves Interiors numerous times in the last couple of months, and I love what how the brand works. The designing and styling skills are impeccable and so is their sourcing skills. Sometimes I struggle to fill a space with the right decor for my home and lifestyle. The popular home/interior shops usually stock pretty much the same thing year after year, and this can be a bore.

Finding just what you need can be impossible sometimes, which is where sourcing service from Eves Interiors comes in. All Eves Interiors needs to do is to check out the space in real life if within the London/Essex area, or a video call viewing can be arranged if you are outside these areas. Then, decor ideas are sent to you and shipped down if you are happy with them. It is a great service for those who want their home/office space looking stylish but don’t have the time or ideas to do the work.
