Home & Design Round-up: Typography, craft, makeovers and Ikea hacks

home and design round upWell it is the most exciting month in the BritMums calendar, and BritMums Live is just around the corner. That also means that I have been doing the Home and Design round-up for one whole year now, I can’t believe how quickly that has come around. I hope to meet lots of you at BritMums Live, so please do come and say Hi, it would be lovely to put a face to the blog name.  If you do have a post you would like me to feature on my round ups, or a blog that regularly covers home and design posts, then please let me have your business card, or jot it down for me, so I can keep you in mind when I am doing the posts each month.

So on with the round-up!

Rachel from The Ordinary Lovely has been getting creative again, and making wall art with office clipboards of all things. I love the idea of this for my impending teenagers bedroom overhaul at the end of the month.  They are a great way to display things and keep organised, or maybe even a set for the kitchen?

If you love a before and after, and lets face it who doesn’t! Then you must see Sarah from Mum of Three World’s amazing kitchen makeover, the change is quite incredible! From brown cupboards and dirty coloured brown floor and tiles, that no amount of cleaning could make a difference to. To light bright, and modern grey tones, with a pop of green into the mix, a very cool look!

If like me you love graphic design and typography, then this is a fab post from Kate – Beak up Crafts, when she had 5 minutes with Liz Mosley a graphic designer who makes cards and prints.

This next post, is all kind of wonderful from Oyster and Pearl. There is nothing I like more that mismatched handles on furniture, AND this is an Ikea hack…see perfection! You can read all about it on Lotties blog.

This month both Slummy Single Mummy and Mum in a Nut Shell have been pondering on living room makeovers.  I enjoyed reading Jo’s tips on what to think about before you start, which you can read HERE.   Ali on the other hand has been lusting over accessories for her new living space. Will she have enough money now she has splurged on a takeaway?  She also writes about three colour rule, very handy to remember when you are redecorating.  Would you like to know more? Then HERE is her post about it. 

Hope you all have a great June, and I hope to see you at BritMums Live!
