Top Pinterest Boards for Home Interiors Inspiration

So we all need some inspiration when it comes to decorating, designing our homes, and interior design trends, tips and tricks.

Industrial touch…

In case you hadn’t heard, the industrial trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon. It looks like it’s here to stay for some time yet.

Top Storage Ideas for Boys’ Toys

If you’re like me, you are constantly trying to find better and better storage solutions for the stuff, ahem, I mean treasures, that your little ones tend to clutter their rooms with. As they get older, they seem to accumulate more and more of said items, and scatter them lovingly across the room. How many of you have stood barefooted on a piece of Lego? Or maybe vacuumed up a small bucket load of loom bands?
