Sunday Bliss...

How is it Sunday already? I swear I just posted about our map love yesterday! It is blowing a gale outside, and while the youngest boy sleeps, and the biggest boy helps daddy in the garden, I am snatching a few moments to make some plans, and get some ideas down for the house this year. I have a huge vat of coffee (from the ever so lovely Perkulatte - do check them out, all the coffee is divine!) and I have a million tabs open in my browser as I pin all the things I want (read, EVERYTHING!). I love mornings like this, because I just don't get many of them (juggling a business and a young family is time consuming - who knew?!) so I savour them when I can.

Today in particular, I am trying to catch up with all the design blogs that I love, and to figure out how I can implement some ideas in my own home.  So I thought I'd share a few with you because who doesn't love pretty pictures and great ideas on a lazy Sunday??

Firstly, there's Apartment Therapy (obvious choice I know!) but I love that there are so many actual ideas from real people who live in real houses that aren't always picture perfect! (I love all the Ikea hacks too - so clever!)

Next Up, Design Sponge - I completely love that you can filter the posts with really useful options - like whether the home is owned or rented, or by size of property - very useful for stopping me from trying to shoehorn mansion worthy ideas into my three bedroomed house!

Another blog I've recently discovered is Daily Dream Decor - there are lots of posts giving actual tips on decorating your own space, as well as showing off beautiful homes - including, how to make a study both dreamy and efficient (I need to pay real attention to this one!) Plus look at this bedroom - navy blue walls? I'm all in!

And finally today I'd like to share My Scandinavian Home, written by a London girl in Sweden - this appeals to me so much as we come out of winter, I think because of all the light in the featured homes - with the dark days of January and February hopefully behind us, I am craving light in all its forms, it feels hopeful and like a new beginning.

Are there any blogs you really love to read? Do share them with me, I'd always love more to add to my list! But for now, more coffee!
