Nursery Inspiration

I don’t talk much about my pregnancy on this blog, but I do like to share my DIY and Interior design inspiration posts, so this one is relevant.

Kitchen Redesign – House and Home Series – Part 2

Continuing the House and Home Series, we’re concentrating on our kitchen redesign at the moment.

It was also purpose built for the apartments and didn’t really have any character. So when we bought this house, we were very excited about having a separate kitchen and although not huge, it’s a great size for a house of this type and plenty of room to do what we want. As we have a separate dining room, we also don’t have to worry about fitting a table in the kitchen itself. Continue reading
