I’m Mel!

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet. You are probably here because you want to know more about me and what my blog is all about. 

You’ve probably already guessed that I am interior obsessed and this blog reflects that. I love to talk about all things home decor, interior trends, color, and biophilic design. My favorite colors are pink and green and this is reflected in my interior designs, with plenty of plants, wood, vintage pieces, rattan, and upcycled projects.

I try to keep my interiors accessible for all no matter what your budget is with easy DIY projects, wallpapering and painting tips, and garden ideas.

I am originally from Cornwall. I remember when we moved into a bigger house when I was a teenager and I finally got a bedroom to myself. I went about designing the layout and coming up with colour schemes for the room and this is where my obsession for interior design began. 

It would be many years before I finally pursued my passion for interiors, however. I joined the RAF just after my 21st birthday and after 8 years of military life, I left and continued with my career in IT in London. Fast forward a few more years and I found myself married with 2 children and buying a house just outside Brighton that needed to be completely renovated.

One day, once the kitchen renovations had finished, I took a picture of our new sofa with some cushions and posted it on my Instagram feed. It got about 10 times my average likes and this is when I realized there was a whole interiors community on Instagram, one of which I love being part of and have made some genuine friends.

After reading lots of renovation and interior blogs, I decided to give it a go myself and now thoroughly enjoy writing content on all things interior design, trends, DIY, travel, and lifestyle.
