We have lately been on a mission to declutter our house and make it feel more like the home we dream of. Its an ongoing process and i think it will take at least the rest of the year. However, I am really pleased with the progress we have been making. Here are a few pictures of the house as it looked today after we focused on the playroom and sun lounge.

In the playroom...

Check out those super organised art shelves!

And whilst I was doing this...

Lots of fun was had in the garden!

So much more work to be done but I am really starting to feel happier in this space. Plus we have some exciting plans for next year. We are going to start saving for something special - a few ideas about what it could be yet and we haven't decided but the possibilities are good motivation to declutter and try to save/make some money. More about this some other time! ;)


  1. Oooh plans sound exciting! Looking forward to hearing more! We've been slowly decluttering for a while (having a teen puppy helps as he has his own method of helping me to declutter! Let's just say the ostheimer animals all live in L's room now, where the dog isn't allowed!) Ax

  2. its all looking great! Wish we had the space to spread our toys etc out a bit more (though maybe next year if we do the extension!) Saving for something special sounds exciting too! We are carbooting in the next couple of weeks to declutter and gain some funds. Decluttering seems to be an ongoing thing in our house as things get outgrown and birthday and christmas etc pass, not helped by the various home-edding bits that are around too!

  3. Oooh the workbench photo, where did you get it? I know a little boy that would love a bench like that!

  4. We have been doing some mega cleaning today too, as DD and her family are arriving tomorrow for a holiday.
    Lovely toys - i found that james played really well for a long time on his own today, after I sorted out the toy baskets.

  5. this is fab, we simplify in this way every so often. i find it makes for more head space.more calm and better play too. x

  6. Doesn't it feel good?! I've got the urge to tidy now after seeing your photos lol :) xx

  7. Looks amazing Laura!!! Get saving ;)
