    Small Balcony Garden Inspiration

    One of my favourite spaces in my flat is my balcony. I didn’t mention it in a previous post as it wasn’t finished at that time. I finally did it! The balcony is sorted and ready for the summer. I only added a couple of plants and seeds but it’s made all the difference. Take a look if you want some balcony garden inspiration and especially if you own a small balcony like myself. I have a very small balcony, it more or less only fits a table and two small chairs. I bought them when I moved in two years ago. It was a brown wooden set which I…

  • Corners of my Home

    Corners of my Home

    If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I’ve shared a few photos from corners of my home. The hashtag #cornersofmyhome is what inspired me to share them with you here as well. I’ve lived in this flat for nearly two years now and I really love it. More and more areas are starting to shape up and although there are more things I’d like to do, I have a couple of favourite spaces. Corners of my Bedroom The bedroom is fairly big with a lot of empty space. I’ve kept it simple with a rail and tall chest of drawers to keep my clothes in. I…

  • Belledorm Bedding

    Belledorm Bedding | Luxury Living with Rooi

    Every time I stay in a hotel (not as often as I’d like) I always think I should invest in white bedding like they have. Never has it happened, until Rooi got in touch and asked if I’d like to try their Belledorm bedding. I thought, this is my chance to invest in a really nice, comfortable and long lasting bed set which I’ll hopefully sleep as well in as I do during hotel stays. It arrived last week and as soon as I opened the packages I couldn’t wait to go to bed. This might sounds silly but it was like magic putting on this bedding, the duvet and…

    HomeSense Brings Interior Inspiration to Leeds

    I’ve always found interior and home inspiration shops have been lacking in Leeds. Ikea has always been my point of call but over the last year, stores like Oliver Bonas, Zara Home and Anthropology all noticed a gap in the market and opened up. And finally this year a bigger and more price friendly home interior focused store has come to Leeds city centre – HomeSense. If you haven’t spotted HomseSense yet, it has taken over Clas Ohlson’s old space on Headrow but it wasn’t until this visit that I realised how big the store is. It’s a home decor lovers dream, a fun park for interior lovers. They have two floors filled…

  • Fruit Crate Bookcase

    Turning Fruit Crates into a Bookcase

    Last weekend, I took on a big interior project. I’ve been wanting a bookcase for a long time but not seen any out there which I like. Besides, I can’t have the flat full of IKEA furniture, no matter how much I love them. I had a little look around the internet and also noticed that in a lot of stores they make use of fruit crates to store products. On eBay, I found a seller who could ship me eight crates for £48 with free delivery. That’s the best deal I’ve come across and far cheaper than a ready made book case. Some of the fruit cases turned up…
