The trend for ultra grey interiors is here to stay in 2017. We’ve had grey wallpapers, paint shades, furniture and fabrics – and now ***drum roll*** it’s time for grey carpet to take centre stage. Yep, that’s right the coolest colour is going to become the hottest flooring trend this year with breakthrough designs and playful patterns. In my my 2017 spring […]

  • Oldfashionedsus - Have to say I’m not a carpet fan, but for my landing and stairs I really like the same one you do for landing! Off to check it out23rd February 2017 – 3:20 pmReplyCancel

  • Karen Clough - Fabulous selection!
    We have grey carpets in our upstairs and were lucky enough to get them from offcuts from another house’s project. A bit cheeky but what a bargain we got!23rd February 2017 – 3:50 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - That’s a great tip if you are looking to carpet on a budget24th February 2017 – 4:46 pmReplyCancel

  • Rachel Newcombe - Fab round-up of grey carpets, they all look lovely. The Ice Skating Mouse has to be the best carpet name ever!23rd February 2017 – 4:51 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I know – I would have loved to be in the marketing meeting when they came up with that name?24th February 2017 – 4:46 pmReplyCancel

  • Carole - Grey, yes! My favourite “colour”! I wish I could rip out all the carpets we have upstairs straight away and replace them with one of these…maybe once all the other stuff to keep the house from falling down is sorted 😉 xo23rd February 2017 – 5:40 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Grey all the way.24th February 2017 – 4:45 pmReplyCancel

  • Antonia Ludden #tidylife - These are great! I’ve been considering a grey carpet for our stairs and was thinking of a plain one, but now you’ve got me wondering about going with a grey patterned design. I think the first two are my faves!23rd February 2017 – 5:43 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - A pattern hides so much. And it’s fun too24th February 2017 – 4:45 pmReplyCancel

  • Stacey @ The Design Sheppard - Ice Skating Mouse? I love that! I really like the Nature trail one but I think I’d find it pretty hard to narrow my choice down to just one of these though. I actually really like having carpet in my home but I always feel so unfashionable as all you ever see on blogs and in mags is bare floorboards. But I love the cosy warm feel of a deep pile carpet beneath my feet. Looking forward to seeing your makeovers.23rd February 2017 – 10:05 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I know. Best name ever! Nature trail is fab but I bit wild. It’s carpet all the way with welovehome24th February 2017 – 4:44 pmReplyCancel

  • cate - We just added grey carpets to our bedrooms, they’re not patterned but dark grey, which I think looks quite smart with the white walls! x24th February 2017 – 9:37 amReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I’m on the hunt for a deep dark grey for my bedrooms too. It’s on the wish list.24th February 2017 – 4:44 pmReplyCancel

Spring has sprung – and you know what that means? Yes, friends – it means fresh new looks for our homes that we just have-to-have. As an interior-stylist-blogger-type, I’m lucky to be invited to the press previews of all the new home collections for the coming season. I’ve picked out two exciting trends for Spring/Summer […]

  • Kate - Love that grey sofa and tray table! Such beautiful styling too 🙂21st February 2017 – 8:21 pmReplyCancel

  • Rachel Newcombe - I love both looks and rather like your idea of combining elements of each into one. They grey walls of the Stockholm would look good with some pops of blue from the World Traveller, for example.21st February 2017 – 9:57 pmReplyCancel

  • Antonia Ludden #tidylife - Wow, these collections are both gorgeous! I’m very impressed with VERY!! Seriously covetable homeware and I’d struggle to choose between the two looks, so I think I’d be inclined to incorporate them in different rooms! Gorgeous styling and photos.. I’m off for a browse of their website now I think 🙂22nd February 2017 – 6:21 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - It’s impressive design for a mail order company. There has been some real thought put into their collection.24th February 2017 – 4:47 pmReplyCancel

When I applied for my mortgage to buy my home two years ago, I had a big shock! I thought my overall money situation was healthy.

Here’s how boost your mortgage chances in 3 easy steps without breaking […]

  • Kathy Hull - These are really great tips for someone who is looking to get a new mortgage. I actually had no idea that you needed to register to vote. It makes perfect sense though. Plus, everyone should exercise their right to vote.17th February 2017 – 11:29 amReplyCancel

OMG! Never – I repeat – Never start an epic DIY job with a cracking hangover. A few months ago I decided to tackle my stairs which involved ripping up the carpet and sanding the wooden steps. This is all part of my grand plan to inject personality into my tiny hallway area. I didn’t anticipate the impact a bottle […]

  • Karen Clough - Great job! I remember our staircase being like that and god it was hard to live with! When we had rubble in our hallway we found it useful to keep the door open but also keep a fan on at the other side of the room, so slowly throughout the day the dust and dirt would be pushed outside, rather than settling back on the floor once you stop for a break. Can’t wait to see how you finish it hun!

    Also, maybe next time you should drink the wine DURING to make it more fun 😉13th February 2017 – 11:36 amReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - If I drank wine while painting – my lines would get more ‘creative’ as I went. It’s now painted and I can’t wait to show you what i have done. x13th February 2017 – 7:00 pmReplyCancel

  • Karen - Making Spaces - Oh, these things always take three times longer than you think don’t they? Made me laugh though (sorry). I’m sure you’ve never touched a glass of red wine since!! 😉
    Stairs are looking sooo much better already though! I shall look forward to seeing them in all their glory when they’re finished x13th February 2017 – 6:50 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I thought you might feel my stair pain……it’s been a few weeks now but I’m getting there with this DIY project. And no, I’d never say good-bye to wine (just maybe not so much before a loud and dusty job).14th February 2017 – 9:33 amReplyCancel

  • Hannah - Brilliant! I love these tips, I need to find some stairs now, I want to renovate some!13th February 2017 – 7:58 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - You can come finish mine off :))14th February 2017 – 9:31 amReplyCancel

  • Cate - I have the exact same project to do, so this is really useful!! I’ve stripped the carpet off (luckily no glue only nails) and they’ve been sitting like your bottom image for a few months now while I decide what to do and gear up the energy to do all the sanding. Can’t wait to see your finished stairs! The hard work will be worth it x13th February 2017 – 10:40 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - They are looking amazing already just with the first coat of paint. I’m just a whisker away from finishing them.14th February 2017 – 9:32 amReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I don’t think I need praise! Maybe a paracetamol??15th February 2017 – 9:07 amReplyCancel

  • Stacey - That does not sound like a job I would want to tackle with a hangover. Well done you for persevering though. It already looks so much better. Can’t wait to see how you finish it.14th February 2017 – 11:58 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Dying to show you too.15th February 2017 – 9:07 amReplyCancel

  • Rachel @ The Ordinary Lovely - Oh my goodness, you did so well to do all that with a hangover. Sanding is my biggest nightmare. So much dust!! The stairs are looking way better, though, so well worth it!! 🙂15th February 2017 – 11:23 amReplyCancel

Over the past year and a half, I’ve been renovating my home on a tiny-weeny budget. Once the building works were paid for, I’ve had no spare cash for basics like furniture or accessories. My solution? I furnished my entire home for free with goodies found on streets of Brighton. Here’s my favourite bits that cost NOTHING – plus […]

  • Claire McMaster - Love it! Amazing what you can come up with.

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Awh thanks. I do think that Brighton is blessed as the streets are full of things that people carefully leave outside their houses for people to take – it helps out the community and it’s a pretty green idea too. I’m always bagging stuff into my car boot.8th February 2017 – 8:53 amReplyCancel
