OUT WITH THE OLD...

I can't believe I haven't changed the inspiration board in my kitchen (right) for five years! This is gone now, the space left behind is sparse and empty, free of blu-tack and ready to be filled with new loveliness. Then I might actually look at it from time to time and erm, get inspiration from it instead of it just being part of the furniture.

There is nothing that desperately needs doing around here, but when I looked at my flat on the Apartment Therapy house tour all I saw was all the things I want to change. I'm sprucing things up for summer and I'll be sharing a few home projects I've dragged out of the old procrastination folder soon.

Your apartment is so cute! I love it and immediately got a feeling of who you are- or might become... truly inspirational- now I need to start on my own place- a small cottage in the woods in upstate NY. I'll post my changes if you post yous : )
