Welcome to my home 🌿

Hello and I hope you’re as excited as me about my first blog post. The aim is to introduce myself and my home so we can become a little better acquainted.

I’m Kat – a Welsh mum of two, living in the beautiful county of Surrey, just outside London. My home is a three bedroom semi-detached Victorian house with small proportions but with big character.

It’s taken almost six years to renovate and decorate our home (most of it we have done ourselves including electrics, plumbing, tiling, laying floors, painting and wallpapering) but the creative inner-me means it is always evolving and adapting to our needs (and decor desires!)

I’ve attached a few images of my home interior which is a mash-up of scandi, mid-century modern and contemporary design with random things that I like thrown in, and you’ll notice a definite monochromatic theme throughout, but with splashes of colour here and there (especially mustard and blush pink!) To see more, you can visit my Instagram page  – www.instagram.com/life_at_number_63



Woven throughout my blog will be decorating and diy tips, the best places to shop (featuring lots of small, thriving businesses), colour palettes to die for, fabric and wallpaper ideas, and pointers for taking a great Instagram photo too!

I hope you’ll join me for the ride!

    Kat – I love what you’ve done here. I’m new to Instagram but I want to blog too and have spent the weekend looking at WordPress templates. You’ve given me the push to go ahead.
    Best wishes with this and I trust we can stay in touch.
    I’m hoping to blog on my faith, life, interior finds and life in Spain.

    Any tips would be gratefully received. I trust you feel better.

    You have a beautiful home! We have recently bought a Victorian terrace and I can’t wait to put our own stamp on it! The living room is currently very dark, if you have had any experience with your terrace making it feel bigger and brighter i’d welcome the tips! But love everything you have done 🙂
