And there was a LOT of fitted furniture. Which I had mixed feelings on; a fabulous amount of storage, but over-whelming for the room.

So it really is time to get stuck into some doing, and the room that’s first on the hit list is my home office. Continue Reading…
When I blogged about what influences my home style I mentioned that many years ago I qualified as a Feng Shui practitioner. Today I’m going to tell you a bit more about what Feng Shui is, and how it’s helpful to apply it to the home.
