In An English Inner City...Garden

We decided a few months ago to move house. Hooray! Then we looked around and realised? It would be a smaller house in a better area. Or? Vice versa. Secretly I was quite pleased as it means we can stay in a house which I love. It's where I left to get married and brought two tiny babies home. So over the next few months we will be gradually doing the house up. And as it's been summer we started off with the garden. So here are a few things we did to make our little garden. Worthy of an Instagram or two



The Little Touches
As the new autumn season home decor is out in shops now I have managed to pick up a few bits and pieces for the garden in the sale. For example the above wooden sign from Matalan. We also got some amazing wooden garden bunting which we have dotted on our brand new shed. And over some of our fences. 


Plastic Flowers
We are quite lucky as our garden has lots of flowers in it from the precious owners but any little potted plants we brought always died! So we brought from Ikea some plastic wild flowers that now sit either side of our bistro table and chairs from Homebase. I invested in a variety of pastel flower pots and lamps. Also from Ikea. 


The Dream Shed
The day my new shed came was a day of excitement! And that's when you know you are officially old! We opted for a 6x4 one. We painted it in special outdoor shed paint and I added the Matalan wooden bunting and the curtain? Was one for a kids room from in the sale at Asda. 


Fabrics
All over my garden is bunting. As I am a little obsessed. Whilst it's not the most practical of things to have up in the British weather I quite like the way it looks when it goes a bit windswept and battered. It reminds me of the seaside. I also invested in Cath Kidston cushions below, again in the sale but these are put away each night to ensure the don't get wrecked within a few days! 


The next room we plan to redecorate is the playroom and I will bring you an update when it is all done. For more of the things I like in the home pop over to Pinterest and see what I'm pinning!

  1. Oh my, I love your little homey touches.

    My garden is in dire need of some attention. I just wish the weather would stay nice long enough for me to get out and tidy it up.
