My Live Lagom journey towards a sustainable life has begun. I’m focusing on reducing energy and waste and improve our recycling habits along the way and last week I took myself off to Ikea to collect my goodies. To say I was as excited as an 8 year old on Christmas morning is an understatement
The Christmas table is the pièce de résistance of every Domestic Goddess. It’s where the stage is set to showcase all the hard work and preparation that went into the feast.
Trends may be seasonal but some furniture lasts a lifetime. Mass-manufactured tables, chairs and cabinets are all well and good, but nothing quite compares to bespoke, well-made pieces. Here’s our pick of the investment pieces that will never go out of style:
I love getting creative with my gift wrapping. Recently I’ve noticed a lot of beautifully wrapped gifts using brown paper. I love this idea because not only does it save waste on multiple rolls of fancy paper, but you can get really creative with the ribbons and adornments because the backdrop is neutral.
Our bedrooms are full of many essential items we use everyday and need close to hand. Toiletries, make up, hair dryer, brushes, beauty products, clothes, shoes, belts, buckles, books, the list goes on and on. We need them, we can’t function without them…… but how do we keep them accessible AND have a calm peaceful clutter free bedroom space?
I have been invited to take part in a unique sustainable lifestyles initiative being launched by IKEA with support from Hubbub and the University of Surrey. It’s called the Live LAGOM project and it’s all about finding new ways to help people live a better life and to save money.
Morning all, I just had to share this stunning Mannequin Christmas tree that two of my friends have created. It’s it just amazing!
Lighting is an important aspect of interior design but getting the fixtures just right for your own home can be tricky to achieve, especially if you have no prior experience or creativity.
There are many ways to create effective lighting techniques in your home. Lighting can add a great deal of character and ambience to a room so it is important that they are placed in the right places, particularly if you have a small space as they can also help to make a room look bigger!
