I’m back onto The House Project, our home renovation with a renewed sense of vigour, inspiration and enthusiasm. We did quite a lot of decorating when we moved in over the summer, but we were busy, tired and skint (!), so had to put a lot of the finishing touches on hold. We prioritised the kitchen, living space and bathrooms and made steps to start the bedrooms, but there is a lot that’s incomplete and not quite there in terms of our interior design ideas. I’d also become a bit overwhelmed with how each space should look and function, so a bit of headspace and a re-think was much needed!…So after a few month’s break, I’m back to clearing boxes, sorting furniture and finding new interior design inspo! And where better to start than with good ol’ trustworthy John Lewis…

Well do you think about outside your house and underground? We didn’t! If an underground pipe develops a leak, it can be hard to detect because it’s below the ground.

However, there are still ways to determine if your underground pipes are failing and it’s important to be vigilant because leaks of this sort can lead to problems with the foundations of your building.

Our Blue Kitchen – A House Project Update

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything about our home renovation on here, mainly because we’ve been busy in Italy and with work and certainly not because the work has stopped! In fact, 6 months into our total home renovation, we’ve still got plenty of work to do! But one of the spaces that is 95% complete is our lovely blue kitchen.

So I thought now would be a good time to reveal the new look of our kitchen space and talk a little bit about how we got there and which suppliers and brands we’ve used. So grab a cuppa, put the House & Garden magazine down and have a read…
