Those who know me well know about my love for wood, so the obvious choice for the new flooring in our bedroom was…well, wood of course! 

I have written a previous article outlining the differences between solid and engineered wooden floors (you can find it here). Howeve...

As you might have gathered, our new home needed a lot of work. Nothing drastic or majorly structural, but it was safe to say that every single room needed a make-over to bring it out of its current ‘varnished wood everywhere’ style.

Our move from Lyon to the Alps was a big step. 

Moving from a large, bustling city where we had a great group of friends, to the countryside where we didn’t know anybody, brought about a big change.

Around this time last year, we embarked on a trip to Copenhagen. I had never been to Denmark before and, being a big fan of scandi style, I couldn’t wait to wander the streets and experience first-hand everything that those stylish Danes had to offer.

While our new hardwood floor was looking spic and span, the flooring folder couldn’t be closed quite yet. There were still two mezzanine surface to think about.

The first was in the bedroom and was more of a mini mezzanine level on which the bed was placed, making a coz...

I was really happy with our new kitchen. It was a great size giving us enough room to circulate in, and with its open style giving onto the living room we never had the ‘shut away alone in the kitchen’ feeling. The units were looking modern and clean, the island gave...
