Hello, a big warm welcome to you! I'm Fifi.
If you love country walks, homely rooms, sitting by the fire + cosying up with tartan blankets then we are like two peas in a pod
Here's a little bit more about me and my blog...
If you haven't guessed yet, I'm home decoration obsessed. Not the maximalist type, the humble homely kind of decoration that makes you think 'cosy', 'lived in' and 'farmhousey'.
I didn't grow up in the countryside, but my family are all from rural Ireland. I spent many a childhood holiday running round cow fields and warming my frost bitten hands by my Grandad's fire.
When I look back on my childhood years, I was destined to obsess over home decoration. My Dad used to take me to car boot sales when I was a little girl and I'd spend the whole time looking out for dolls houses wishing I could take them home to decorate them. I was always obsessed with cleaning too (bizarre I know!) and since a young age I really value the importance of having a peaceful, family home.
About me + Neil (and the photos on this blog)...
I live in Brighton with my fiancé Neil who is an amazing Brighton wedding photographer. I'm very lucky that he takes all of the professional shots featured on my blog. Who would I be without him? ;)
Together we bought a house in need of serious renovation and love back in July 2016. My blog documents how we're turning our city home into our country escape along with country trips we go on and general life inspiration. We adore walks in the woods behind our house, drives in the Sussex downs, exploring quirky villages and we often blog about our weekend country breaks together.
It's my favourite thing to do as a team on those weekends where DIY can do one!
What I do for a living...
I work part time as a Project Manager from home for a small company called Do What You Love.
The rest of the week I work on ad hoc creative projects which include my blog, copywriting for brands and managing our house renovation.
Well, I guess that's me... Now that I've shared my story, I want to hear yours. Please do come say hello on Instagram. I love getting to know fellow home decoration addicts.
