I spy 🌞 A massive improvement on yesterday but I have a feeling it's not going to stick around for long 😭 But for now I'm going to sit here, enjoy my morning coffee and the sun shining through the patio doors before I do the school run β˜• Happy Wednesday 😘 Xx #makingthemostofit #morningsun #hellosunshine #livingroom #homeinspiration #familyroom #myhomestyle #mystylishhome #lovemyhome #featurebrickwall #realplants #familyhome #newbuildhome #makingahouseourhome #stylingmyhomemyway #choosingmyownstyle #itsgoodtobedifferent #realroomsofinstagram #yorkshire #fionashome
One of my favorite views in our house is from the dining table over into the kitchen. πŸ’Ÿ You can view the chronological journey to blue and white (from orange and brown) if you swipe through the pictures of this post. The very last picture is from immediately after we bought the house. You may be thinking, "the last picture looks better than the middle pictures!" If so, you're not alone! The "during" phase became so messy that I remember thinking, "what have we done???" I just wanted to paint and organize and decorate (make things pretty!), but we were still working on the guts of the thing... structural and wiring and plumbing improvements. I admit I was extremely impatient at times, but in the long run I am glad we kept priorities straight and did the deeper, less seen, but super important things right before moving to the "pretty" and "comfortable." It's like that with our physical health, too... if we're using the right tools, sometimes the deeper, unseen, less "pretty" or outward issues need fixing first, and our bodies are so good at prioritizing. Like my friend Wendi, whose cysts have disappeared and whose sleep is improving, but who is still awaiting relief from other uncomfortable issues like hot flashes. She's a few months into her health journey, using the same amazing plant-based supplements I use, and she realizes that her body has prioritized the most important issues, and is still faithfully working through the others. πŸ’œ What will your story be? Message me today for a special discount on my favorite supplements, good through this week!
I think I've spent most of this weekend faffing with shelves and realising that I've become a bit of a fake plant fan, which I never thought would happen πŸ™„ It feels like all the rooms in the house are finally starting to come together which is making it really feel like home. A very bizarre feeling when I've spent most of my life living the military life which involved moving every couple of years. The thought of never having to move again is weird AF! 🏑 #sundayshelfie #foreverfamilyhome #myhomemystyle #homeinteriors #shelfstyling #faffingaddiction #fakeplant #seenoevilhearnoevilspeaknoevil #makingahouseourhome #homesweethome #yorkshire #fionashome
HAPPY SUNDAY ▫️ Totally lost my Instagram mojo over the last week, how does that happen? But I’m back to sharing my home in all its glory. Its’s amazing how a little bit of sunshine can make you fall back in love with your home! We had such a great day yesterday. Spending the morning/early afternoon in Knaresborough having a picnic on the river side, a stop off at the pub to get β€œrefuelled” then an afternoon in the garden. Topped off with wine and fish and chips outside πŸ™ŒπŸ» . . . #bedroom #bedroomdecor #houseofhearts #diy #summerweekends #desineo #blinds2go #sundaymornings #makingahouseourhome

Today I designed my Prince Charming crib!! I hope & pray (for the price we paid) it comes out exactly how I visioned it, it looks something like this but it’s also tuffed in the front... & i said no buttons! Don’t want those darn buttons accidentally coming off somehow... it was amazing how things easily came together from style, material, colors etc that we went ahead & ended up designing our future matching bed aswell πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ Lol, ooops!! (basically our life savings are gone, lol) #sorrynotsorry πŸ˜‚ but it’s Gona be so worth it!! Anything for my babies πŸ™ŒπŸ½ .... i can’t imagine how i would be if it was a baby girl, with Eileen i went a little hard too, OmG I’m just get so excited, can’t wait to show y’all but i can’t cause it’s just all in my brain lol Please God, let it all look like in my dream πŸ™πŸΎ πŸ’­ Today was so much fun & i learned so much when it comes down to customizing, beleive it or not, I hate grocery, make up, clothe, shoe shopping but furniture shopping has to be one of my FAVORITE!! ... Finally our rooms are starting to come together ....

S U N S H I N E β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ . . The sun just makes everything better, having the window & door open and the washing on the line is making me so happy πŸ™ˆ plus finally starting to feel a little better so have managed to give downstairs a good clean as it was driving me nuts that I hadn’t really done it properly in weeks. #sunshine #sunmakesmehappy #productiveday #productivemorning #cleaning #downstairsdone #hoovered #dusted #tidy #cleanandtidy #windowsopen #livingroom #livingroomdecor #livingroomideas #interior #interiors #myhomestyle #neutral #warmth #candles #photos #wallart #cottonballlights #homesweethome #makingahouseourhome #newbuildhomes #homesofinstagram
Morning 😁 I'm putting a happy brave face on this morning! We've ran out of coffee 😱And I have to wait until after the school run to get to the shop to buy some 😭 the struggle is real! So I've been doing my best to distract myself by trying to get a new angle of my livingroom. This is all I've got for you because. You know. COFFEE. I HAVE. NO. COFFEE!!! 😫 #wheresmycoffee #ranoutofcoffee #howdidinotknow #icantfunctionwithoutit #addictedtocaffeine #newangle #livingroom #lounge #familyroom #myhomemystyle #stylingmyhomemyway #mystylishhome #homeinteriors #interiordesign #homeinspiration #myfamilyhome #mycolourfulhome #makingahouseourhome #homesweethome #yorkshire #mylife #fionashome

I am so excited to finally be sharing Ellie Joy’s nursery with you!! So many times I have walked into this room & cried just thinking about how good God is. He heals our broken hearts. β€’β€’ Weeping may last for the night but JOY comes in the morning! [Link in bio] #theperfectlyimperfectmama
Not the best lighting, but the makeover is done and I LOVE it!! It looks so crisp and fresh 😍 I have always loved my red hutch, but after 13 years, it was time for a change (hopefully Josh doesn’t feel that way πŸ˜†) #furnituremakeover #justlikenew #makingahouseourhome #chalkpaint
The kitchen is tidy 😌... oh, cancel that... one side of the kitchen is tidy. The rest of the house is a mess 😩 There will be a day when the entire house is clean rather than just a room or two πŸ€” It will happen! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
Dressing table ✨🌟✨
Won’t take nothin’ but a memory, from the house that built me. #makingahouseourhome #keepinthetraditiongoing ❀️

I'm so pleased with my decision to go lighter in the livingroom. I adored the dark grey but I just don't think it was really me although I am glad that I tried it! This colour is much fresher and brings so much light to the room and the best thing is I haven't had to change any of the accessories! The colour is driftwood blues and like all the other paint I've used in my house it's by @valsparpaintuk #roommakeover #nomoregrey #driftwoodblues #mycolourfulhome #myfavouriteroom #myrelaxingspace #realroomsofinstagram #itsoktochangeyourmind #itsoktobedifferent #thisismyhomestyle #mystylishhome #lovemyhome #ourfamilyhome #makingahouseourhome #mydfs #shelfie #yorkshire #fionashome

DAY 8 FAFFING ▫️ I would definitely consider myself a faffer 95% of the time! This shelf in the hallway is my number one victim for being changed around all the time 😁 Happy Sunday everyone!
