It’s been another big week here at Making Spaces HQ. And my last one before I have a week off work. A week off! It’ll be the first one i’ve had in nearly 18 months. I so need it. In fact our little family of three does. We’re off to Centerparcs for some much needed downtime from all things digital, breath in some fresh air and take some time to make memories with the fam.
I couldn’t not share this with you guys though… i’m currently featured on Houzz UK as part of their “At Home With…” series. And i’m actually pretty proud of myself right now. There’s a great interview over there with yours truly (which actually makes me sound like a nice person, who’d a thought!?) You can have a proper nosey around my home, all with a chance to win a lovely silk cushion from one of my fave places to shop.

I’ve actually had tears in my eyes from reading some of the comments on the feature so far. It seems i’ve managed to get across my ethos about good design and interiors being totally affordable and do-able. Our three bed semi being proof it can be done.
“Great article what a nice change from the usual homes on this site that are just white boxes with an expensive fit out.
The colours are beautiful, I especially like the bedroom mixing the deep blue walls with the red lamp and the bedside drawers are gorgeous. Thanks for including the link for the furniture, I’ll be checking that out later. I also love the study, magnetic wall and the little white pots going up the wall.
What a great style you have, a beautiful real family home and you’ve done it all with shops a lot of us can actually afford, lovely.
Thanks for sharing.”
Although there are some peeps that really ARE NOT loving the distressed chimney breast wall. Personally, I think it’s just my dad posting from different accounts. Either way, I don’t mind. Makes me laugh.
“Sorry Karen, but you’re going to have to “finish” the chimney breast.”
“I’m with your dad on the chimney breast though – please make it looked finished!”
“I’m not convinced with the dining room chimney breast – sorry not even for a Scottie dog lol”
“Sorry I didn’t like the chimney breast distressed look.”
“…how did you managed to convince your partner to keep the distressed chimney wall?”
I’d really love you guys to pop over and have a read, I find everyone’s comments and opinions genuinely fascinating. I’ve always said i’d rather someone love or hate my work/home. So fire away and you could win that lovely silk cushion.
