Kerry's House Tour!


Well, I tidied up a bit, and actually took some photos! I'm no photographer, and there are some wonky angles in there, but this is it, this is my home...not all of it, but some little glimpses anyway...warts/artex/clutter and all! I felt it was about time. (Note to self...need new bulb for fly light).
Thank you for all your get well wishes! I wish them back to those of you who are also feeling yukky. xx

  9. Lovely Kerry! Everything looks impeccable, how do you do it???

  10. i believe you tidied up A LOT! or maybe bertie's not old enough to be causing complete destruction yet! so super clean and tidy and such a great place, i love it. love the burger print. and is that orange pendant lamp from heals? if so i have my eye on it for our kitchen. v cosy and stylish. x

    p.s. lovely to see my octons in your home too.

  12. Wow, thanks everyone...what a lovely response!

    I have to be honest...our house is NEVER usually so tidy...these were exceptional circumstances!

    Lou...so we do have the same sideboard...I notice yours has one extra cupboard than ours! It is probably my favourite thing in the house. The Dala horse print is actually some framed fabric (that I'm wondering is old Ikea) I found it in a charity shop in its frame for £5!

    Deb...'twas a charity shop find, but I think the fabric may be an old Ikea one, though not 100% sure.

    Nath...believe me...the place is usually a complete tip! Our house is a mid-seventies semi, so it suits our style and has nice big windows.

    AnnaG...the drawers are a very new addition, and they were found at a garage sale locally, so I'm not sure where they came from, sorry.

    Francesca...yes, you're right...I tidied up A LOT! Took a loooong time! Bertie is a very destructive little boy already, and usually I am stepping over paths of debris! The light is a Kartell one, that yes I think you can get in Heals. We got ours from Graham and Greene. Love the Octons...plus....did you spot your 'Autumn' print in there too??

  36. I'm so jealous of your desk area - especially the horse print and the perfect pops of green. And the chair! Not only does it look great but I've also got a sneaky suspicion it might be rather comfy? (Yes, I have a bit of a thing for comfy things/spaces...)

    ReplyDelete
  37. PS - where did you get the dandelion clock wall paper? It's beautiful :) xx

  39. lovely home - just shows how stylish a 'modern' house can be, ours is a sixties box but I wouldn't swap it... or would I?... maybe for something by the sea....

    ReplyDelete
  40. whoa, i love lots of things about your house, the table with mix match chairs, the extra large sandwich print and your dark floors.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Just realised I hadn't commented on this! No idea how that happened – must have been a quick shut that window at work moment ;)

    Kerry your place is super super lovely. I adore how you organise your pics - especially the ones in the hall. The chairs are such fab finds too :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow Kerry your house is beautiful! You have amazing taste and it all looks so put together but in a natural way. It's beautiful but not showy as well! I'd say it's pretty perfect! Well done xx

  49. I noticed you have a lot of records, we also have a rather large collection and I'm looking for new storage (hate our current shelves), where did you get the lovely black shelves from?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Fiberspace...we have hundreds, yes! The shelves are from good old Ikea...the Besta range.

  52. AMAZING!!

    could you tell me where the black cow poster is from? and this last thingie (don't know how to call it-mobile?) with a bear? did you do it yourself?

    compliments again!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Eva,

    The black cow poster was actually one that was made for a local even...on billboards etc, and we managed to save a copy, so unfortunately you can't buy it anywhere. It's fab though isn't it?!

    And the bear mobile, was from Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/JoleeCo i'm not sure they have any at the moment, but worth contacting them. Thanks for your nice comment :)
