My name is Laurie, I’m an interiors enthusiast, furniture restorer (to a point) and I love anything that will give me clever ideas on how to re-do the space I live in. I live with my husband Ben, who is a Paramedic and part owner in Ruby Reay Interiors, our online interiors shop. We have 3 pretty lovely children, Riley 10, Ruby 8 (hence the name) and our very theatrical 5 year old, Flinn, plus 2 cats, Rosie & Percy.
We live in sunny (most of the time) Somerset. I do feel truly blessed to live in such a gorgeous part of the country and much of my inspiration comes from our surroundings. We live in a reasonably spacious Victorian terrace at the moment, but my dream is to buy a run down shell one day, with land and workshops. I want the kids to be able to run free in the country before they get too old and just want to be at the pub, and I want chickens and maybe a small holding.
Certain things through the years have made Ben and I realise that we need to make the most of what we have, always be grateful and to count our blessings, plus I’m a huge believer in if you want something hard enough you will succeed.
Our home is so important to us, it’s a place I want to relax in, entertain in and for my children to feel safe and warm in. This is why I plough so much of my energy into it, and will continue to do so until I feel it’s just right. I wanted to turn my passion into a business and I did just that 6 years ago when I was pregnant with Flinn, and here we are, I have built up a fabulous customer base and met some extremely inspirational people that I’m sure wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been for this little business. We also featured in Style at Home magazine last June and have some exciting new opportunities coming up in the future, so watch this space. Like I said, anything is possible if you want it hard enough!!!!!
On this journey I’d like to share ideas and inspirations for your home as well as mine and how to achieve the looks you want on any budget. I’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch with feedback or questions and we hope you enjoy and feel inspired!
