I’m really excited about Harry Corry’s design a duvet competition. I would love to see a collage of the best entries.

The competition is open to residents of Ireland and the UK, age 16 or older. Each entry must be completely original. The winner receives a £200 voucher for Harry Corry and a duvet set with their design.

The closing date is August 10th 2016.

Fire pits and chimeneas that I need immediately

outdoor fire pits

In all my years of tenant life, this is my first summer to have a garden.

After decking the place out in flowers that I cannot name, and installing an obligatory range of solar-powered flashing garden ornaments, I now have an unwavering desire to prolong the time I can spend sitting outside.

Easy Ways to Introduce Colour into Your Home

– written by Anna Gillespie

Giving your home a facelift can be no easy feat. It can be daunting to change your ordinarily neutral home into a vibrant space. When it comes to adding colour, you might ask:

‘What if I don’t like it?’
‘What if it looks dated?’
‘What if it goes out of fashion?’

And it’s no surprise we may feel like that…we all remember the vivid, brash bath suites of the 90’s, don’t we?! But have no fear, as there are a number of risk-free ways to revamp your home and introduce colour without having to reach for the magnolia again! Read More
