My Corner

More tweaking has been done in a corner of my home this week where I'm often found sitting watching TV with the laptop

I was falling out of love with my letter rack specifically

Its purpose had become somewhere to hold letters I was putting off filing or actioning but I did need something to hold receipts so instead I brought this blue envelope, add a Cath Kidston sticker and VOILĂ€!

The envelope is now hidden in a draw and my receipts are no longer a feature of my home!

The next problem was the my sofa arms becoming dirty due to general wear. I turned to a box of vintage linens which I was yet to find a use for and found some pillowcases I loved but no longer matched my bedroom

Perfect thrown over and easily whipped off when they need to be cleaned!

It's so much fun making these simple changes

Pin It Now!


  1. It looks really lovely - I like what you have done with the arms of the chair. Sue x

  2. Hi there. Love your little green cupboard. Did you paint it? It is a very pretty corner.

  3. That pillowcase / arm cover is lovely,love the colour combo, looks really fresh. Have a great wkend :)

  4. I do like the pillow case idea but they wouldn't stay on our sofa for 2 mins (read Jack lol).
    You are getting very organised my dear, can you give me some tips please ;o)
