I’ve not owned a TV for 8 months. I know, crazy right! Especially as I love my trashy telly (ie TOWIE, Made In Chelsea, Love Island…) Not having a telly box has revolutionised how use my home and I’m definitely happier, relaxed and more content. But being in TV-free home hasn’t all been sunshine and rainbows. There’s been moments when I’d enjoy nothing […]

  • Kimberly ~ Swoon Worthy - I’ve often thought I wouldn’t mind not having a TV at home (we have THREE but that’s more down to my other half than me). We rarely ever watch normal terrestrial telly and most of our watching is Netflix or Amazon-based series. It’s not even something that we watch every day. I do however like to have music on in the evenings (my Amazon Echo comes in handy for that) and I love listening to podcasts! I think I’d miss it for our weekly movie nights though – it’s a tough one! Love your balanced take on it though – and I can’t blame you for wanting to hold out for the Serif!! xx12th June 2017 – 6:39 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I like the idea of booking in a movie night as a treat once a week Kimberly. Good one. But maybe with a pull down screen type thing to make it really special? That would be cool. With popcorn too.12th June 2017 – 6:54 pmReplyCancel

  • Kate - I didn’t have a TV for over five years but recently bought one for my new flat as was fed up of streaming shows on a tiny laptop screen! I definitely don’t mindlessly watch television though, if I sit down to watch something its a show I’ve actively chosen to watch (even the guilty pleasure ones!). I definitely guilty of not listening to music that much though, would probably be a good idea to change things up a little and listen to more records, podcasts etc.12th June 2017 – 8:24 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Five years. Wow! I totally get the tiny laptop thing. Although I love snuggling up in bed watching it. I would high reccomend a record player – or just a digital radio to listen to things when you’re working or hanging out.12th June 2017 – 10:39 pmReplyCancel

  • Karen - Making Spaces - Oh we’re bad, we’ve got four in our house and a spare one stored in the loft eaves.
    I don’t think i’d miss it that much, apart from between the hours of 7.30-9.30pm, but there’s no way we could get rid of it now, Charlie would go bonkers without Netflix!!
    I do love the idea of a record player though x13th June 2017 – 9:38 amReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I think your home would look great with a vintage one 🙂13th June 2017 – 12:56 pmReplyCancel

  • Rachel @ The Ordinary Lovely - Ooo, interesting!! As a family, I don’t think we could survive without one. The kids love CBeebies and sport is a big deal in our house. I’m pretty sure I could do it though because I rarely watch anything. I do like it on in the background when my husband is away even if I’m not watching anything. The house is too quiet without it. So maybe no, I couldn’t do without after all 🙂13th June 2017 – 2:47 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - At least you had a think about it 🙂 It’s not for everyone x14th June 2017 – 11:38 amReplyCancel

  • Stephanie - I use to have the TV on whilst I was on my laptop working, however since having my desktop computer I can’t see the TV from there. So I don’t bother. However I do love to listen to my music, so I put this on now and have the Radio on, or Spotify instead.15th June 2017 – 9:35 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - I’m a huge fan of Spotify. It’s brilliant for when you are working at home alone.19th June 2017 – 9:58 amReplyCancel

Followers of my blog would have heard of my staircase woes. Finally, after a year and half of solid work it is nearly finished (well nearly, nearly). I’ve invested so much time and love into this area of my home. This post reveals my tiled staircase. Was it a good idea? You be the judge.

  • vicki - I love the makeover, looks great, and unless someone face plants it, they’ll never notice any lumps and bumps. Very bright and welcoming! well done!8th June 2017 – 4:14 pmReplyCancel

    • WeLoveHomeBlog - Thank you Vicki9th June 2017 – 3:24 pmReplyCancel

  • Sandy Polson - Beautifully done! I am such a big fan of your work and loved the mosiac tiling used on the staircase! I am working on a similar concept for a sideboard table as well and your ideas and colour combinations are desperately and inspiration! Thank you so much9th June 2017 – 6:15 amReplyCancel
