Creating a Wall Gallery in my Ensuite

As you know the latest room in our house to have a makeover was our en-suite.  As happens when you are a busy family and on a budget, not everything get done all at once, and a room needs tweaks, and sometimes you just need to live with it a while to see if  it needs anything else.

En-suite Makeover (picture heavy post)

Today, I am very excited to reveal my newly refurbished en-suite.  This has been such a long drawn out process, with problems with existing pipe work and several leaks. We’ve now had two new pumps and I still have 4 holes in my kitchen and utility ceiling.  It’s not run as smoothly as I would have liked, to say the least and so its taken far longer than we first imagined.

Ideas to add colour and a retro feel to my kitchen

Plain Bright, simple kitchen, white, light, smeg

Following on from an interview last week with a magazine about kitchen utensils that I own, and iconic brands that I use.  I took a step back and looked at my kitchen and began to wonder if it really reflects who I, and my family are.  The kitchen for us is the hub of the home,  because it has seating and a TV in there too, we could pretty much live in that one room.  It’s automatically where we would sit down and have a coffee when we invite friends over too.
