A double post tonight. This ones in the shop (a little later than it should have been, but there are so many plates you can spin) anyway, was super popular last year. If you want to change some of the wording just let me know.
8 ways to increase your home's value 💰 ⠀
Tip 5. Minimise the cost for your buyers to personalise it 🖼 ⠀
Most buyers will try to picture their furniture in your home and you can help them do this by having fewer patterns on the walls. Invest in a coat of neutral colour paint, if needed. It may not be your taste but it will reduce the likelihood of them factoring those decorating costs in when they're working out how much to offer on your home. 🎨🛋🛏 ⠀
Look out for Tip 6 coming tomorrow ⠀
You are strong. You are brave. You’ve got this. You’re totally #fuckingfierce 👊💪

Next in the newer newness parade! Available to pre-order soon.
I could tell a meandering tale about finding your tribe and being nice to people, but ultimately the message behind this one is DON’T BE A DICK TO YOUR OWN SPECIES. #micdrop#dontbeadick#brownlowbrowndesigns
New Colourways Arriving Soon!
Time to finalise the next release of colourways available via our website.
Any recent new colourway posts that you are keen to see make an appearance let me know!
Oh hey 👋 Say hello to the first of my new prints - available to pre-order soon!
Recently on the walk to school I have been trying to stick to the mantra “Be the one to say hello”. It can be so easy to keep you head down and not acknowledge your fellow human beings... but isn’t it nice when someone smiles and says a cheery hello? I figured, why wait for someone else to say it first - go forth and be the one who says hello!
What's Tencel™ and why are we using it? Tencel™ (also called lyocell) is a natural fibre made from eucalyptus trees. It's ideal for bedding: supremely soft, breathable and temperature regulating. It's a type of rayon and has similar properties to fibres made from bamboo. And yes, it's got superb environmental creds too, but that's another story. #sweetdreams

Ah half term has arrived! so the Mum Boss juggle begins... the studio door remains open but not quite sure how I’m going to actually get any work done next week, evenings I guess 🤔😬Tom is also working abroad, leaving tomorrow until next Sunday 😱But it’s fine it’s going to be fun to spend some quality time with the little darlings right ? I will not get stressed about how much work I have to do, and repeat, I will not get.... anyway while I go off and have a mild panic attack can we take a minute to appreciate how cool my new @niamhgillespiedesign Mum Boss print is looking sitting pretty on my ace vintage filing cabinet from @blueticking !? Just love them both so much. Now go forth and Mum Boss the hell out of half term guys whatever you’re up to! #mumboss#whereiwork#studiovibe#vintagefilingcabinet#greenandpink#pinkandgreen#myinteriorstyle#interiordesign#victorianconversion#orange#colourmyhome
☀️GRATITUDE DAY 2 ☀️ today (well most days really) I’m grateful for my fab husband. For various reasons really 😍, but especially because he trusts me enough to just let me get on with whatever crazy design ideas I have. (Well.... it’s either that he trusts me, or that he’s too worn down from years of redecorating to challenge me 😬...... I would like to think it was trust) either way, we now have neon and stripes in the freshly painted utility room. Painting is so good for the soul 😍....who says utility rooms have to be boring!? Certainly not me! 🌈☀️😍🙌🏽 ✌🏽

Autumn - a great excuse to use burnt orange and copper in your table set up 👌
What to do with spare cushions... I bought a few of these SKAGGORT cushions from @ikeauk they're very inexpensive at only £3.50 and make excellent scatter cushions for the kids... But..I figured I could use one for some storage solutions. Me and the kids were discussing which fabrics to use from our fabric bin to make some little bag storage to store a few favourite cars and their toothbrush and paste etc. I just looked at the cushion and thought it was way more cooler than all the patterns we had. We bought some yellow fabrics for here too..which I'm still figuring out whether to use or not..but I took the cushion,cut in half, folded the cut ends over,pierced some holes and used this string we had in the fabric bin which I'm pretty confident came from an old gift bag 😅, I didnt take a picture making the drawstring bag which has his brush and face cloth in now aswell,but I just sewed around the trim,you could use a glue gun or hem tape,laced the string through and voila a mini drawstring bag. They look awesome in this space.
You know the most amazing thing is when your child looks at you..with such enthusiasm jumping up and says " mummy that's an awesome idea" they always make me feel like I'm some brain genius hahaha
Oh and I'm still in love with the IKEA kallax shelf we turned into a clothes storage wardrobe.

Lying here, listening to the wind and rain battering the window, on this cold gloomy Saturday morning 🍂Reminiscing about how much the house, in particular the master bedroom, has come on since we got the keys in November. Swipe left to see the before! We still have lots to do; art on the walls, more plants, trinkets, shelves etc but overall it’s a great space to relax. This room had to be stripped right back to the bare walls as all the plaster had blown (we realised this after spending 3+hrs stopping the wallpaper off one side!), the light fitting was close to the window and needed re-situating, the door opened the wrong way into the he room and the frame needed fully replacing, the radiator had to be replaced, an old fireplace blocked up as was just an unsightly hole (no chance of salvaging 😢) and finally new windows to replace the single pane weather beaten ones.

Need inspiration? This is a beautiful restaurant in Netherlands, but I wouldn't mind having a corner like this in my living room. Look at these birds and butterflies 🦋 on the wallpaper. It's just a stunning design.

Day 18 handmade (by an eBay seller!) I'm off to get my flu jab today. Apparently they are still waiting for vaccines depending on age; 65+ still can't get theirs so my mum's still waiting. Do you get a flu jab every winter? 📷@georggiaburnss
