Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m a total pregnant lady cliche – spending the last bit of my maternity leave nesting at home and prepping for baby’s arrival.
In our defence, we’ve been sorting this house for well over a year. But, the extra person joining us imminently has indeed given us a bit of a deadline for a few more rooms to be finished.
So we are super excited to reveal a *bit* of our bedroom. Not 100% finished – because who really has all their furniture, curtains, artwork up straight away?
We like to ‘live’ in a room first to feel for the space
Then save up to buy what we really want. But you get the gist, and it definitely serves us as a room we can use happily and with far more storage than we’ve ever had before.
I must admit, probably the nicest thing about this room is being able to walk around in new slippers on clean surfaces. Previously, we would have to walk only in outside shoes and take them off every time we entered a ‘clean’ room, i.e bathroom. To be able to walk across 70% of upstairs in slippers has been a dream – small pleasures, yes, but so satisfying.
After the builders left in mid Jan, we’ve been spending most evenings and weekends painting, sorting and cleaning – with a little help from method products. A brand I’ve been using for years, after searching for an in-shower spray that I could have on the side that was affordable but also not an eyesore (yes, I’m *that* shallow).
An introduction to Method
If you haven’t heard of it, let me fill you in – it’s a cleaning brand that works without using any toxic ingredients and its products are made from 100% recycled plastic. What’s not to love?
Oh, and it has just launched its Rose Gold collection with prices from £3.00 (which smell great). I must admit when I included this brand on Instagram Stories it’s funny how many people get as excited about a cleaning product as I do…
It appears I’m not the only slightly crazy person who lives for a day of tidying.
And with the impending addition to our little family, naturally derived eco-friendly products are more and more part of my consciousness.
We still have a little way to go with the house, the next stage is painting the hall. Then the entire outside of the house, replacing the roof all before we can start to think about the kitchen (once we’ve paid back our savings!). But for now, our world is almost complete.
