My home

You need to be creative when it comes to decorating a rental. We love our new apartment but dislike the living room light fixtures. (However this is much easier to fix than the pink walls.)

My first idea was to cover the light fixtures with giant rice paper lanterns. Only problem with this is how do you get the existing light fixture inside the paper lantern?? Any ideas??

Or a large plain drum shade with a diffuser.

A few months back my orchids were no more than a green verging on brown sticks and not a flower in sight. For some reason I persisted on watering them every two weeks with no sign of any growth. Then after many many weeks green shoots started appearing and then finally some flowers. So even if your orchids look like they will never flower again don’t give up, they might just surprise you.

Well you all know about my red lounger calling it a day. Now I love Ikea but not when their furniture breaks after only a year! Anyway I scoured gumtree for a couple of days and found two tan leather armchairs. So I rang the guy and said I will take them without even seeing them in person. Sometimes I am a little impatient which is not good when buying things online. The chairs arrived and I was worried I had a mistake at first but after a bit of cleaning and disposing of the seat cushions I felt a lot better about them. We had foam cut to fit the chairs so all that is left to do is decide on the material for the cushion covers. Maybe a zebra print? D is not happy about that option so maybe not.
