An Alternative Eco-friendly Fireplace - Bioethanol Fires

There’s nothing more magical than a lit fire on a cold winters evening don’t you think? And whilst we don’t rely on them solely for heating with underfloor or central heating being the mainstay in our homes, you can’t beat them for providing visual comfort. A place to gather with the family and unwind, there’s nothing more soothing and relaxing than sitting in front of a fireplace with the flames flickering and the lights dimmed. From an interiors point of…

The Alternative Kitchen

The Alternative Kitchen

  I have to say the I.E. kitchen is the most used space in our home which has resulted in it looking a little tired and battered around the edges. From time to time I get to thinking about how, if we could afford to (it’s on the large size so would cost a fortune), I’d change how it looks. Having opted for a traditional set up of wall cupboards and base units ten years ago, I wish we could transform…

An Alternative Quick & Easy Window Treatment - Window Film

  After all the excitement of  Meeting The Designers last week, I thought we’d take a break and take a look at our windows today.

Not one I’d recommend as I’ve discovered it requires great skill balancing glasses on one’s nose and not being able to move at all. I’ll…

The Alternative to Wardrobes – The Clothes Rail

May 2, 2017

It appears that we are ditching the wardrobe in favour of the The Clothes Rail when it comes to storing our clothes.  The question is are your brave enough to have your clothes on display? Personally, being a clothes, shoes AND bag lover, I’m not sure I’d want it all on show, but then that’s probably because I wouldn’t want the OH to know the extent of my hoard!   There are positives to ditching the wardrobe and looking to the clothes rail as…
