All About Us
Hello,My name is Karen and I live in Devon with my four boys; hubby, twin 8 yr olds and a 18 yr old.
Throughout all the homes I have lived in as an adult, the theme has always been white. For me it means peace, harmony, cleanliness and brightness.
People have always commented on my homes, and one friend once likened my flat by the sea, as being in God's waiting room. I loved that image. Pure white everywhere. The walls, sofas, furniture and ornaments.
Even my children haven't escaped my white mania. Children in white, makes most people laugh. "Are you mad" "think of the dirt" but I can think of nothing more beautiful than a baby in a snowy white romper or a little boy in a classic pair of white cargo shorts with a navy and white stripe polo shirt.
Over the course of the blog I want to show how we transformed our run down 1930's Art Deco House in Devon into a haven of white and shabby chic style. All achieved on a VERY tight budget, with the amazing skills of my husband and my love of a bargain.
Thrifting became a necessity for us and soon grew into an obsession. We rarely pay full price for anything these days and find ourselves in good company now as more and more people are discovering the thrifty, vintage way of life.
Please also take a look at my online shop where I sell vintage homewares and the rescued furniture my husband and I relove and hand paint.
