Kitchen Makeover with Autentico Versante

 When we moved into our house 5 years ago, when I was 5 months pregnant with Eliza and I was so happy that the kitchen was okay, we had looked round so many houses that had dodgy or just plain disgusting kitchens I was relieved to find one I didn't need to fix straight away!  Fast forward to the present and this kitchen is now the bane of my life, okay that might be a slight exaggeration but I really hate the melamine kitchen doors. Sadly we don't have enough money to build the kitchen of my dreams (we are...

Create Chic Chalk Painted Pumpkins for Halloween

As soon as October rolled around I was already planning ahead to halloween, as a child it wasn't that big of a thing. I remember putting on a costume and walking round to my gran's to trick or treat, there wasn't the decorating of the house or outside that has become popular now.  Some might say that its got out hand or we are just copying America, but I love it! Our whole road gets really involved with most of the houses decorated. So, with this in mind, I wanted to get ahead of the game and decorate my pumpkins!...

How to Care for Your Newly Chalk Painted Piece of Furniture

So you have bought a piece of chalk painted furniture or having painted it yourself, you are now thinking, how on earth do I keep it clean?!  If you have painted it, you will have most likely spent hours and hours making it look absolutely stunning and even though it has that shabby chic, distressed look, you don't want it covered in little people's messy fingers, discarded food or water marks.  First thing first after you have finished painting, you will need to make sure the piece is sealed, either with wax or a water soluble varnish (and oil based one will...

Denim Drift - Interior Trends for 2017

This year is one of the first that I have been really into following what the upcoming trends will be. It's something that we all copy, without even realising, the trends filter down from a few trail blazers to high end shops, eventually coming to the high street. At which point you can buy every home accessory you might ever want in that colour or theme!!  Dulux recently realised their colour for 2017, Denim Drift. This colour was picked by their global team of colour experts within an over riding theme of 'Life in a New Light' and sits within...
