I live right in the middle of the city. I love being close to everything and living in such as a vibrant neighbourhood but it can be a bit overwhelming as well. Sometimes at the end of the day I like to be able to retreat to my home and feel like I'm a million miles away. That's why I started this blog. I have tips on how to keep the signs of the city out of your home, including noise reduction and privacy as well as ways of creating a relaxing atmosphere inside your home and garden. I hope you find it useful.
