I read so many interiors blogs, buy countless home and garden magazines and receive press release after press release about product launches and this month’s ‘must have’ piece of furniture or accessory. I love information but it can sometimes get a bit overwhelming. Headlines scream ‘New! Bigger! Better!’ and you really have to stop and think hard about whether your life and your home really does need something like that or if your brain is simply responding to a catchy title and a pretty picture.
I absolutely love being on the Great Little Trading Co. testing team. It's one of the best jobs ever. Sneak peeks behind the scenes, checking out products before they hit the market, getting glimpses at how busy photo shoots result in picture perfect catalogues, and then finally getting my hands on the new range to put it through its paces in my own home. For someone like me who loves all things to do with family-friendly interiors and decorating children's rooms, it's an amazing team to be part of.
There's a bit of a Great Little Trading Co. and styling theme to my blog, at the moment, isn't there? But that's no bad thing, right? I was actually hoping to head outside and share some outdoor adventures, this week. But then the snow happened. And hail, and rain, and a little bit of sunshine, closely followed by gale force winds, more rain, and then a touch more snow. We're not a particularly fair-weathered family; we're just somewhat confused! As I'm typing this, the sun is shining gloriously in the sky but I've checked the forecast and an almighty storm is due to roll in in a matter of minutes. So I'm turning my attentions indoors, once more, and I have a bit of a fun 'style off' to share with you.
