making a home {rugs}

When living in a rental or even when you move into your first home the spaces can feel empty, dull and not you.  Restrictions on painting walls and DIY in rentals also make it difficult to make the place feel like a home. 

Rugs are a great way of making a room warm and welcoming while bringing a bit of your style to your rented accommodation.  Furthermore – in keeping with our idea of buying pieces now that you can then take with you when you eventually buy your own home – rugs are a good long-lasting investment.

Typically when one thinks of rugs you imagine them by the fireplace or in the bedroom, however they can actually be used to brighten up every room in the house. 

Check out some of these ideas for inspiration:

great gifts {doorganizer}

If you have a birthday coming up or one of your friends is moving into a new house and you would like to get them something but don´t want to spend too much, this is a great little gift:

The DOORGANIZER this is one of those things that you don´t realise you can´t live without until you discover it!

I am always leaving myself little piles of thing that I must not forget and then end up forgetting because they are not in my path as I storm towards the door late for work!

You can get this great little gift for £9.95 from Pelican Pear

To brighten up your Monday I though I would share with you one of the great images from Moonpig – a fantastic website that has saved me the embarrassment of late birthday card arrival on numerous occasions.

This is pretty much how my Monday will go!
