Expecting a baby is an incredibly exciting time in anyone life, however, it can also be very stressful and somewhat expensive. One of the biggest expenses associated to a new born baby is the furnishing and decorating of the nursery, especially for first time parents who are not sure what is necessary and what is not, therefore tend to overspend. Parents often go over the top when it comes to their children and companies take advantage of this by developing an extensive range of products parents can buy for their nursery. Most of these products are not necessary and if you were to buy everything it would cost you a small fortune.

Decorating your baby's room is one of the many great joys that comes along with being new parents. For those budding designers, it is a chance to create a room unlike any other in your house, where the usual rules of style need not apply if you don’t want them to.
Today, I am going to be focussing on some of the themes you could employ in your baby’s room, ready for when it arrives. These look to cross a lot of different styles, so hopefully you’ll find one that will be right for you and the little one.

Like so many others, I am in love with the shabby chic look and I am not afraid to show it. I even wrote a piece about it while I was preparing for my holiday, I had bought a motorhome and was dying to make it my own, so I decided to redecorate it in a shabby chic style and share my experience. This got me thinking about how this shabby chic style would look perfect in my real home, a shabby chic bedroom in particular would be beautiful and girly. Creating this effect is very simple and really cheap, if you want to find out how to create shabby chic look, check out this guide.

There is nothing more magnificent than entering your wedding reception to see all those wonderful decorations covering the whole room and turning it into a magical wonderland. But this doesn’t have to be in some reception chamber in a hotel or rented out hall, with a little creativity you could have your perfectly directed wedding reception in your own home.

My good friend told me few stories about accidents in the house, especially in the kitchen. I thought lot of people do not even think about it. I didn’t before I heard those stories. I am not going to go in detail, but I thought I share with you my views on safety.

Buying your first piece of property will always be nerve wracking. It usually represents a huge jump into the unknown, on many different levels. If you have never lived away from your parents, a lot of little things you take for granted become your responsibility. You’ll have new routines and locations to memories. Plus you can never be 100% satisfied with a house until you have moved in.

When I purchased my first home, it was easy to get excited about a lot of things, from the home improvement projects I’d pursue to the ability to implement any interior design plans I wanted. Being a homeowner is a thrilling experience; you can finally call a place “yours.”

Recently, I have been burdened by a hankering to go on a slightly different style of holiday. While jetting off to some exotic beach is still a great mental picture, 50% of the time something happens to ruin that dream. Busy beaches, tourists, weather. When sun is all you want, when it isn’t easy to enjoy it, the holiday is ruined. Equally annoying is being confined to one area, unable to “chase the sun” from town to town.

Fashion is fickle. It wasn’t so long since wallpaper borders and contrasting prints were the height of fashion, and before that, who can forget the avocado green bathroom suites of the 1980s? At the beginning of a New Year we all like to look ahead and predict what might happen over the next 12 months, and although there are always some trends which come like a bolt out of the blue, it is much easier to predict general trends and colour schemes which are likely to increase in popularity in 2015.
