Hi there, I’m Rach and I’m here to tell you a little more about me. I’m very much a what you see is what you get kind of person. I’m honest, extremely loyal, some would possibly say opinionated, a bit quirky around the edges and I love a laugh!
I started this blog back in 2017 as a way to share my years of knowledge within the interior design and home decor industry. With over 15 years experience including furniture design and a love of words I thought it about time I set pen to paper. Or tippy type on my laptop if we’re being being pedantic about it.
With several home renovations under my wing I’m also a dab hand at most things DIY. So I make sure to share my projects in the form of ‘How To’s‘ with you. As and when one comes along. There’s nothing I won’t try to do myself. And I rarely call in a trade now tackling anything from plastering to tiling and everything in between.
I’m always on a budget too. And I’m here to tell you that you don’t actually need to have a massive budget to create a beautiful home. Another reason why I started this blog. Above all else I want to pass on my knowledge. And in doing so help others create beautiful budget homes too.
I should also mention that I’m an autism mum to two of my three sons. Not because I want sympathy or understanding but because this has shaped and honed my view point on interior design. And how it affects our emotional well being. When you walk through your front door your heart should sing. In fact every room in our home should make us smile. It should be a reflection of ‘the inner you’. And so my approach to design is sensory and multi layered. Lifting up or subduing the senses to achieve the perfect balance for each individual home.
And finally. Never forget that Interiors should also be fun. Life is too way too short for vanilla! And so you can’t go wrong if you follow my golden rules. To sum it up here’s my perfect recipe for an interior scheme:
(well it has to be memorable so why not be funny too)
K – Killer or Knockout
N – New
O – Old
B – Bling
