A Message to Straight Men: It's Cool to Like Interior Design - Swoon Worthy

My tongue-in-cheek message to all the straight guys that I KNOW are reading my blog! Hey, it's cool to like interior design and it's not just for certain segments of society. Read more here: https://www.swoonworthy.co.uk/2018/05/straight-men-interior-design.html/

So you've asked and I've delivered. πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½ Here's the first stop on our tour-of-rooms-I-don't-like-in-my-house-but-can't-do-anything-to-change-that-yet. πŸ™ˆ That's not really a catchy title, is it? πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ But anyway, let's ignore that fact and say that my biggest bugbear about this room is the paint colour. 😣 Now, it may be perfectly acceptable to lots of people but it's just so not me at all and it makes me depressed just looking at it!! Plus I've styled it essentially using lots of leftover decor I had after focusing on the living room and master bedroom and well, it's a little jumbled I admit! The space has SO much potential, however, and it's killing me because I need to be patient! πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ You can see more over on my blog post today where I'm showing the whole space off - just click the link in my profile and this image to be taken straight to the post! πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

How I've Styled the Dining Room (For Now) - Swoon Worthy

I'm utterly obsessed with houseplants.☘🌴🌡 I get a lot of questions in terms of where I find mine, how I pot them, how I make sure they don't die on me (okay for that last one - admittedly, I'm not always successful πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ) so I figured I'd wrap all of that info up in one big monster of a post. πŸ’ƒπŸ½I'm actually TAKING YOU PLANT SHOPPING with me and you can follow along as I choose them, pot them and find them homes.πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½ It's all part of a really cool campaign by @pushdoctor who are highlighting the health benefits of having houseplants - and there are plenty (for instance, did you know having plants can make you more creative?! 😲).

How to Shop for Houseplants - Swoon Worthy

As you probably know, I absolutely adore houseplants. I have always had quite a collection but when we moved house, I decided to retire a few that didn't make it through the winter, knowing that Spring would soon be here and that once we moved, I'd be able to update my collection. I've been wanting to do a big houseplants post for a while, taking you through the whole process with me - from choosing the plants to researching their requirements, to potting them up and finally finding appropriate homes for them.

Of course, I want more. I always want more plants. 🌿🌡🌴☘So ya know, YAY. πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Oh and by the way, if you haven't yet seen the bathroom makeover I did with a tiny budget and with zero patience, you can check that out by clicking the link in my profile and then clicking on this image πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘† and it'll take you straight to all the #beforeandafter goodness.πŸ˜‰

The Compromises We Made When We Bought Our House - Swoon Worthy

Ahh compromise. It's one word we hear repeatedly when people talk about house-hunting. I swear Kirsty and Phil must say it at least 12 times in every single episode of Location, Location, Location. And it was something we were fully aware of - after a while, anyway - when we were searching for our perfect home. And that's the thing - yes, it can actually be perfect and you might still make compromises. [ 1,844 more word ]

For the last couple of weeks, I've been faffing with this bathroom, just trying to get it to the point where I'm happy to live with it!! πŸ˜‚ While I would have loved nothing more than to rip the whole thing out and start again, it's just not an option at this moment in time as we've got bigger priorities for our budget πŸ™ˆ but I did want to give it a bit of love πŸ’•. When we moved in, the bathroom was a rather boring shade of blue with lots of cheap chrome accessories!

How I've Styled My Blush Pink Master Bedroom (for now) - Swoon Worthy

As you are probably aware by now, we moved into our home just over 3 weeks ago. It doesn't seem that long, really, seeing as I have only just cleared the last of the boxes (well, mostly - we still have lighting to go but I'm not unpacking that just yet for reasons which I'll explain soon). Basically, I just wanted to unpack, settle in and see where the various pieces and accessories I already own will go before I start making sweeping changes. [ 803 more words ]

Working with what I've got seems to be a theme on the blog lately - we just moved into our house and I'm dealing with the choices of the previous owners. πŸ™ˆ Thankfully, this deep plum shade and spotty wallpaper is looking pretty okay with my own furniture and accessories and so while we have lots of painting to get on with, this room is a little lower down on the priority list at the moment! Happily, lots of you seem to like it too which is great πŸ™Œ- I just wish I knew the paint colour - I'm clueless! 🀷🏽 This weekend, however, painting shall begin in earnest: I'm giving my bathroom - currently in a very insipid shade of pale blue - a little cheap makeover because I can't bear the colour any longer. πŸ˜‚ Have you got any projects planned for your weekend?

How I've Styled Our Living Room (for now!) - Swoon Worthy

As you probably know, we moved into our new (old!) home just over a week ago now and the first room I knew I wanted to tackle was the living room. In my experience, it's always good to have at least a couple of rooms sorted as quickly as possible when moving house - no one wants to feel like they are looking at boxes and chaos at every turn and I was keen to have a spot to just relax at the end of the day, no matter how much stuff we still have to get on with.

How Using a Moving Company Took The Stress Out of Moving House - Swoon Worthy

Should you hire a moving company? We teamed up with Movingeverywhere Manchester Removals & Storage to make our move from Cheadle Heath to Shrewsbury so much easier.

How Using a Moving Company Took The Stress Out of Moving House - Swoon Worthy

So, last week, I finally shared my monster of a post on our new home so you can see what it looked like as a blank canvas! Today, I’m stepping a little bit backwards in time to share the experience we had of moving in. There’s little doubt that the entire process of selling your home and buying another is a… [ 1,760 more word ]

First Look at the New House: Empty Room Tour & Layout - Swoon Worthy

It’s been quiet around here the last week or so but if you’ve been following along our moving adventures, you’ll know that on Friday, 23rd March, we moved into our new home in Shrewsbury. Well, I say new. It’s actually 130 years old. But she’s new to us, having sold our beloved Edwardian Semi on the outskirts of Manchester that we poured so much love into over the last (nearly) 8 years. [ 2,221 more words ]

3 Items I'm Eyeing Up for the New House - Swoon Worthy

So by way of a little update - we have finally exchanged contracts and we have a new move date of the 23rd March - yep, that's next Friday! Can I get a HUZZAH!? I'm relieved and excited and a little bit stressed if I'm honest but ultimately, very very happy. I'm sick of talking about moving and I've no doubt you are sick of me talking about it so hopefully, soon, we can all just move on from all the drama and get started on some fun new projects.

Blogger Tips: How to Create Sponsored Content That Doesn't Suck - Swoon Worthy

It's been a while since I've done a Blogger Tips post and while I'm well aware that many of those who read my blog are not bloggers, I do think sometimes my posts about blogging might be informative to you too. There's a lot of misinformation, distrust and ignorance around blogging (or 'influencers' - a word I'm not that keen on but whatever) and probably for good reason. [ 2,145 more words ]

Our little man Quito hasn't been feeling too good for the last week. πŸ’•πŸΆπŸ’• He's had tummy problems and he's struggling to keep his food down. Blood work came back okay which is a relief but we are still waiting for the results back on other tests. He's still entirely his happy-go-lucky self though and while he's not really had the energy for long walkies, he's still cheerfully chasing the cats and going crazy when we come home. πŸ˜„ So we hope it's nothing serious 🀞🏼 - he hasn't had any 'incidents' for a couple days now and he's keeping his (vet-provided) food down now which is a good sign. It's so hard when your fur babies are ill though as they can't really tell you what's wrong or what hurts but rest assured this little boy is getting a lot of extra cuddles these days. πŸ’•πŸ’•
