Interiors Project 01 Before & After

Just in case there is anyone who hadn't seen our beautiful shower room before we got our hands on it - here it is:

Interiors Project 02 First step Stripping

First work started- the thick lacquer is almost off and
also the hundreds of layers of paint

So far so good... although this is going to take a long time

Compact WC and larger shower ... New basin, mirror, radiator and window

New shower

New flooring and much more space

the devil is in the detail... images from top left:

  • Standard shower hose replaced with Hans Grohe plastic silver hose
  • Compact IKEA basin with square mono block tap
  • Powder coated aluminum column radiator

Interior Project 02 Hall Stairs Landing Existing

 The next interior design project is the hall, stairs and landing. I'm still working on the colour concept for the space but I'm starting by stripping the paint off the bannisters. I'm hoping to find some nice coloured wood there under the thick treacle like lacquer and lots of layers of paint. 

The work starts with nitromors... poo-e

Interiors Project 01 Shower Room - Demolition

Our shower room is nearly finished so I thought I'd put some photos of here of the demolition and general mess that we've endured for the last couple of months. We've just got a bit of tiling to do and then we can get the electrician back to finish off the lighting, etc

Everything removed ready to start putting new things back

New ideas... new look and new necklace. I've been inspired by doing some research into a custom order. So here is a little look into what will hopefully be my new range:


I'm pretty happy with this... hope you like it too

Lucy's Wedding Jewellery - Ready to Ship!

One of my loves (sad obsessions) is gift wrapping presents- especially for my bridal jewellery.

I love to show exactly how special and unique my jewellery is by wrapping it accordingly. As the theme for Lucy's wedding is burnt orange I decided to make the wrapping to match.

Hand printed gift wrapping

The full set in their individual wrapping / displays

The bracelet attached with a coordinating ribbon

The bespoke display wrapping closed

All pieces wrapped in black tissue paper

Final detail of a bow to the package

Final package includes promotional discount cards

And off it goes to Lucy the bride-to-be
