Bits & Pieces: Sneak peeks of my home

May 31, 2018

As I’ve mentioned a few times I recently moved out of my girly Georgian townhouse flat and in with my boyfriend, whilst a tour of that new flat is imminent (I promise) whilst I finish up tours of my old flat I thought I’d show you some sneak peeks of my current digs – taken from my Instagram. I can’t wait to show you it properly soon!

Just need to re-pot the monstera and hang a scaff plank shelf and then my fave corner is complete. . . . . . . #urbanjunglebloggers #mybristolhome #abmplantlady #monsteradeliciosa #botanicals #acolorstory #dslooking #apartmenttherapy #nestandthrive #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantclub #houseplantlover #interieurstyling #indoorjungle #plantsmakepeoplehappy #crazyplantlady #plantliving #livingwithplants #plantgang #ihavethisthingwithplants #myhappyhome #interior123 #interieurs #bohostyle

This is my favourite corner of the home and I have a bit of an addiction to taking photos of it. We have our sound system set up on top of the sideboard (as well as a mini jungle) and a picnic hamper underneath stores our vinyl collection.

There may be a half assembled bike talking up most of the lounge but quiet corners like this help me overlook it. 🌿🌿🌿

It’s been the perfect lazy Saturday of pottering around the house, rearranging and unpacking the last few bits and eating endless slices of buttery toast. Now to get my flapper on for an eve with my faves . . . . . . #mybristolhome #vignette #vignettesweekender #cornerofmyhome #myhappyhome #acolorstory #dslooking #urbanjunglebloggers #daffodils #simpleandstill #nestandthrive #sodomino #interieurstyling #myhyggehome #kinfolkhome #mynordichome #whitewallshome #abreathofwhitespace #tinytinymomen

So not ready for daffodil season to be over but also really looking forward to summer blooms! 🌼🌼🌼 Happy hump day people! Roll on Friday 😊 . . . . . . . . . #nestandthrive #abmathome #abmplantlady #acolorstory #dscolor #abmlifeiscolorful #sodomino #bloomandgrow #daffodils #daffodilseason #tinytinymoments #thesweetlifeunscripted #thatwinterspringthing #themindfulapproach #facethespring #botanicalforagersunitedsocietyinc #thisishowihueit #colorcolourlovers #dsyellow #ihavethisthingwithyellow #n

I can’t resist £1 daffodil bouquets in Spring.

Pro tip: If you sneak in an astronaut themed wine bottle to your candle/houseplant vignette, your minimalist but geeky partner may not notice just how many candles and plants you have 😂 #notaminimalist #planthoarder . . . . . . . . . . #urbanjunglebloggers #abmathome #acolorstory #dslooking #abmplantlady #myhappyplace #myhappyhome #myhome #insidemyhome #vignette #aloe #stringofhearts #candleaddict #ihavethisthingwithplants #crazyplantlady #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantclub #houseplantlover

Whilst this may seem a bit too crowded for some this little vignette of house plants and candles makes me smile, and the wine bottle we kept purely because it has a picture of a spaceman on it.

I had a dreamy, relaxing hump day eve of yoga, repotting my plant babies and a nice, long bath. Exactly the kind of mid-week recovery that was needed ahead of a busy weekend celebrating my getting properly old . . . . . . . #mybristolhome #urbanjunglebloggers #stringofhearts #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantaddict #abmplantlady #crazyplantlady #acolorstory #simpleandstill #nestandthrive #nestandflourish #abreathofwhitespace #houseplantsmakemehappy #myhyggehome #mybohoabode #myboho

The monstera’s growing and my fave corner is getting lusher and greener everyday 🌿🌿🌿 now to install a shelf to hold even more plant babies! 🌱🌱🌱

This is how that set up looks now, as you can see our monstera is really growing.

Pottering about the house tending to the plant babies, singing my heart out to Disney songs and drinking endless cups of coffee. 😊 I braved the rainy outside earlier and can safely say I’m staying tucked up in the warm until it’s absolutely necessary to leave the house again. Love a cosy long weekend! . . . . . . . . #mybristolhome #shelfie #bookstagram #shelfiesaturday #shelfstyling #shelfiedecor #shelfielove #interiorstyling #bookishlove #penguinclothboundclassics #clothboundclassics #interie

We have a mini bookcase in a small nook in our living room, I have taken over one shelf with my colourful books and we’re still deciding how best to arrange the rest of the shelves.

I so missed having a bath in my old flat, so candlelit baths with all my products are a fairly regular occurrence now.

One of the signs of a good weekend is having no clean cups/glasses/drinking receptacles in the house right? If it can hold liquid, it’s been used as a glass the other sign might be going for a party ‘nap’ and waking up the next morning having missed the night out Now putting the flat back together after a weekend spent welcoming @lewin.f to his 30s, and focusing on this peaceful spot because the rest is a train wreck . . . . . . . #mybristolhome #gallerywall #abreathofwhitespace #whit

My plant stand came with me to this house and it houses another mini jungle and yet more candles. On the wall behind it we’ve got a small gallery wall of colourful prints. This wall it between our window and french doors so a bit of a challenge to photograph.

It’s been a pretty fab hump day. I had a lunch date with my wifey @bloom_with_daisy and her beautiful fur baby, a lovely catch up with the bestie @rosief46 who’s finally home after saving turtles in Costa Rica, then came home to a totally unexpected bouquet. Hope you’re all having fab Wednesdays! Friday feels so close now 🙌🏻

Sometimes you have great plans for your bank holiday weekend, and sometimes those plans get derailed by evil period cramps from hell - resulting in having to waste a weekend in bed with a never ending supply of hot water bottles and cups of tea. When that happens you treat yourself to candles and plant babies, because you deserve it! 🌵🌵🌵

How cute is this guy? He’s a recent treat from Urban Outfitters and that adorable little pot makes me smile, he’s currently sitting pretty on top of our plant stand. Oh and that candle, by the way, smells incredible!

She’s finished and I’m in love! I painted the frame in my fave pastels and then with the help of @lewin.f changed the chain, break and gear cables, fixed a pedal issue and gave the whole thing a good clean. Now to attach the pannier rack and basket. 🚲

And here’s a sneak peek of a recent project, Lewin helped me refurb an old bike. We took her apart completely, gave her a good clean, I repainted her in pastel unicorn hues and then we reassembled her replacing the chain, brake and gear cables. I can’t wait to show you more pics of that process.

Love, Sarah x
