The Organised/Shopping Phase.

So, this far into my pregnancy I am currently in the organising/shopping phase. I think that comes right before nesting :)


First jobs were the baby's room and sorting out Finn and Jasper's rooms. Even though I am a ruthless culler of junk/toys, their rooms are constantly filling up. How does this happen?!



The baby's Expedit, plenty of room left to fill!

Jasper's Expedit below.













To get everyone organised it means storage, storage, storage! 
This meant a trip to Ikea and the Expedit bookcases were on my list. They are not original or exciting but for us they work perfectly to showcase toys and books in the neatest way possible.
Baskets were a must too.


Also I was over the green I had in the living areas. So I shopped my own cupboards and bought out my floral cushions with some blue to mix up the vibe a bit. Flowers courtesy of Valentines Day :)







Did you notice my white lounges in the main living area?


 I ended up having to return our brown lounges after 5 years as the leather was starting to peel away! Turns out they were a faulty product and the store I bought them from gave me new lounges (after much chasing and harrassing I might add!)I'm really happy with them. The white makes the space so much lighter.


I also couldn't resist buying up some teensy baby clothes.
There seems to be a theme happening :)




So as most of the things I have been buying lately has been for the baby I will show you the nursery next week :)


Hope you have a wonderful weekend

  2. Your living room is to die for,
    & I know what it feels like to have so much junk & even after you chuck half, still manage to create more.

  4. I love the white lounges. You're right they do lighten the room. I think the Expedit shelves from Ikea are fantastic - they look great in children's bedrooms. Can't wait to see the nursery! Ange

  9. Hi Simone- ooohhh- I so love that stage you are *obviously* at- with all your organising & sorting...

    When we had our third I was totally the same...it felt fab to be on track- & something like *fresh, white* couches is just the icing on the cake!
