Wine bottle opener by Tiger

I love unique items so when our wine bottle opener broke.I was in the market for a new one to buy.

Then I came across this randomly while browsing in the Flying Tiger store how cool is it and only €2.

It’s pretty strong too & will make a great accessory to our future bar cart project!

Home Decor at Hickeys 

I popped into Hickeys only to browse and ended up leaving with a bag full of home decor.Oops I guess I just couldn’t resist these bargains. There all so pretty in there own way. Here is what I picked up:

                 Over door Hooks €4

I think these are just gorgeous every girl loves sparkly items. I don’t like to put too many hooks on the back of a door as I find it can get very cluttered so with these one will go on the back of the bathroom door and the other two will go on the back of bedroom door & guest bedroom.

           LOVE Heart Jars €2.25

I love jars and love displaying food where you can see it as I find when you put food in the back of the press you either can’t see it, it goes un-used and out of date or you end up buying another just in case. This way you can display your food where you can see it.It also helps as you cut down wasting food. They could also be used in your bathroom to display things like cotton padd,cotton buds or bath salts etc whatever you use most of.
                 Place Mats €4.10

I love both the colour and quote on this as I love to cook and love people to people to sit down to dinner. I also love the duck egg colour. 

                      Heart Mirror €20

This is actually going to be a gift to my sister in law Emily ♡ (raging I didn’t get one myself but the store had only 1 left). She is only 13 and her Birthday is the end of the month. I thought it’d be a nice addition to her gift as it is something she can have forever , when she’s older she can bring it along to her new home. I think it’d be fab in a dressing room or bathroom too. 

Retro Home Dècor Finds 

     Those little trinkets that bring joy!♡ 

 Anyone who knows me knows I love love anything vintage and unique. I adore pieces that catch your eye by being different and not just your typical household  item. As Konmari teaches everything must spark joy in your life. And if you don’t know who this woman is you need to get her teachings into your life asap!

                      Marie Kondo 

So I squeeled when I found these to pieces lately both have significant memorys behind them for me. 

First up is the Scottish Terrier Coat Hanger this screams my Dad he is a well known dog breeder,homer and lover of all things dog & animal related people refer to him as the dog whisperer. I bought this for my Dad * & also for myself so I would be reminded of that love I have for dogs because of him. I can’t wait to see his face when he opens it as it is so made for him.

                    Scottie Door Hook

 I love partys and throwing them but more importantly my favourite holiday was to the carribean with my husband and this just reminds me of all of those combined. I’m also a big fan of art deco pieces and currently trying to collect pieces to make my own bar cart with and this bottle opener will be just the icing on the cake on the cart.

                 Parrot Bottle Opener

Both were on sale at Marks & Spencers at only €6.25 each! I would suggest popping into the store as they are sold out online at the moment.

Home Interiors Inspiration for Summer

So this beautiful summery July, makes you realise how everything looks in the summer light and I love some interiors inspiration these are my favourites. They aren’t fussy and easy to do with the right accessories.

Blooms

incorporate some fresh flowers to your dining table if you grow your own in your garden you can use those or even artificial ones that you know will keep. I think there very beautiful and romantic at a table setting.

Dream wardrobe

If you have a small room or don’t like the look of a bulky wardrobe (like me) this can be perfect for you. Floating shelfs for extra storage. One length rail to stretch the whole way across the wall to give a continuous look. Also it’s great to be able to see your clothes and colour co-ordination is a must. I have all my wardrobe sectioned in style. Casual Dressy and colour co-ordinate. Use the shelfs for accessories clutches,handbags, belts etc. A full length mirror is also a must and hanging it on the wall gives you better distance especially if wearing a long dress or wanting to see your shoes. Always remember to paint these room in crisp colours white,nude,or light beige as it brings lots of light and keeps the room looking fresh.

Vintage Boudoir

Use your bedroom space wisely by bringing some french inspiration to it. Boudoir is a french term for a lady’s private dressing room. Use Lace on the walls and  vintage hooks to display your jewellery, Mannequins are great for piecing together your daily outfits. Drape lace from your windows as light curtains. Strip the floors to show the floorboards in their natural state and give them a wash of white paint not only does it widen the room but its a great excuse to bring more light to the room. Textures add lots of character so mix it up using different textiles recycle throws by cutting them up for a nice soft rug or make cushion covers. Your room should be clutter and gadget free especially if you want to get a peaceful nights sleep. Use trinket boxes to store away any items that you don’t use on a daily basis.

Cosy Sitting Room

I love the feeling of getting lost in a movie cuddled up on the sofa while switched off from the world, especially in the summer evenings. You don’t want heavy colours or drapery so to let the room breathe stick to light pastels incorporate this by adding cushions,candles or a light throw in all these colours.  Using Metallic’s like the clock & candelabra bring vintage elegance and the wood brings warmth and rustic feel to make it that more homely.
