I will be discussing here some ideas related to decluttering, colour therapy, spaciousness, cork walls/floors, mirror placements, and storage/decorative overlap. Continue reading “Pep up your abode!”
You can really tell the world is changing when your grandmother asks you how you’re doing and if you’re eating well…….via Whatsapp!!

- Bringing Nature Indoors, and
- Positively Bold Colours and the closest parallel with Fashion in a long time.
