Hi! Welcome to Coffee, Chaos and Junk. I’m Madeleine – AKA – the “Queen of Chaos” – Fueled by coffee – dark roast, cream and sugar please! Our house is under Beagle rule with the able assistance of a terror (Oops – I mean terrier). I create regular chaos for The Beard (Husband), TechSupport (teenage son) and Spitfire (pre-teen daughter). Chaos usually comes in the form of the latest idea (Honey, I was just thinking….) and the project(s) that ensue.
We’ve been changing up our 1960s bungalow to better reflect our family. I’ll be the first admit that I have no idea what I’m doing but I enjoy learning new things. We’re talking about the girl who gets a thrill when her husband brings home a new power tool. My style influences are all over the map – I adore anything farmhouse or rustic but a little bit of boho is always fun too. My heart skips a beat at junk and industrial – black pipe and concrete anyone? As a science geek, I have an ongoing relationship with lab glassware and random items of science junk. Like most people, I work on a budget and love a good knock-off. I love colour, creative reuse and DIY. Thanks for stopping by! Around here, the coffee is always on!
