Nature Indoors

I am known as being something of an interiors tart. I love to hear about the latest innovations in the design field, I’m a sucker for home makeover shows, Escape to the Country-like programs and have mentally bought a massive house and furnished it via Pinterest. When it comes to new and interesting features for the home, I’m there.

Something that has caught my eye recently have been wall water fountains. I’d not heard much about them previously, however having seen a few pictures here and articles there I decided to look into these more closely.

Basically, wall water fountains can be installed into your home and then go on to offer a multitude of benefits. For example, they are practically a piece of art work. They provide a very cool focal point, switched on or off and you don’t see them in every house so are quite the talking point. They also offer therapeutic benefits which appeal to me greatly. Used in massage rooms, therapy rooms, spas and more, I can certainly understand the appeal of laying back, closing your eyes and listening to the sound of your own mini waterfall.

I’m a keen advocate for proper relaxation and “me time” as in these busy times many of us seem constantly plugged into one digital device or another constantly. We need to switch off sometimes, unwind and get back to nature. The middle of November isn’t the best time to hike to a natural waterfall of course as so having one of these attractive features in your own home is most definitely a win.

Would you consider a wall waterfall? I could most definitely be tempted!

A Different Home Office Makeover

I’m a freelance copywriter and have been for nine years. I love my work. I love being my own boss. I love stationery ( a lot) and I love my office space. Or I do for a while. I’ve had a fair few office makeovers, some have hit the blog, some haven’t. Given that my office space is a place I spend a fair whack of time I like it to feel good.

Amongst others, I’ve had a pretty and grown up work space…..

I’ve had a motivated work space…..

What I really want is a “Nicki” office. One that suits ME and me alone (and is unlikely to hit the Pinterest “Top home office example” list).

I’ll need new lighting….

All of these and more may be found on my Home Office Makeover board on Pinterest (I’ll be adding to it regularly).

The new-look office is still in its planning stages but I’ll make sure I keep you informed of progress, and of course will post a grand reveal at some point.

What do you think? It’s very me, isn’t it?
