Home & Design Round-up: Houseplants, glazing & extensions!

home and design round upLooking for home inspiration? Well let me show you just a few blog posts that I think you’ll love, that I spotted this month.

Starting off with some great value summer accessory ideas from Apartment Apothecary. I love the ceramic vases and those rugs…perfection!  This before an after post, in a dining room is just stunning, check out the book shelves at the Oyster and Pearl gaff.

Are you a green-fingered house plant owner? I am starting to get quite a collection now, and I seem to have the knack (most of time) of keeping them alive, hurrah! Well Liz in this post tells you what the top 10 houseplants will help rid indoor pollution in your home. This is a great post, and I’ve now added a weeping fig to my want list.

If it’s house lust you are looking for, then I have the perfect post from Mad About the House. Just relax and pore over these 10 beautiful rooms.

I’ve got to say, living in a house that I would describe and dark and gloomy, especially in winter, I was very interested in this DIY makeover from the We Love Home blog.  What a difference it has made changing a window to a fully glazed door!  A DIY in progress next as Stephanie shares the first stage of her kitchen renovation.  It going to interesting to see what space-saving ideas she has.

From Katie at Mummy Daddy and Me, I could not resist sharing with you this post all about her extension.  What a difference it has made to both space and the light.

Finally, there is a new collaborative home interiors blog on the block aptly named Roost. Stylish family living with DIY posts, room tours, inspiration and even a TV channel, I’m excited to see what they come up with. I loved the post about the DIY wire notice board and how fab is this bathroom.
