So what exactly is in Roost episode 11 sponsored by Samsung?
Well, we share our tips for designing the perfect fridge freezer configuration because fridge freezer design has advanced so much in recent years.
No longer are you limited to under-counter options for small spaces. And for those wanting more storage for chilled foods, the choice goes way beyond the classic American Style two door fridge freezer.
If you have a large family, you will almost certainly need a big fridge freezer. But knowing what split of fridge to freezer space you need can be hard to measure.
We show you how to configure the right layout for your family's needs.
Next up, you might not think buying curtains is all that hard but have you ever thought about the importance of the fabric you choose?
If you love natural light beaming through your home but not when you need privacy, curtains are the perfect window treatment idea. With so many options out there, figuring out which fabric can become quite a confusing task.
Choosing the right material plays a big part in the look of the curtains. Plus, it can make a real difference to the room you’re hanging them in. So considering the mood of the room is a good starting point.
We delve into how to choose the right curtain fabrics and throw in a few curtain ideas too.
Finally, gardening expert, Teresa Conway shows us a super easy small garden idea.
Using Lobelia and Bacopa around the edges, which should give some lovely soft pastel petals, and trailing white flowers, find out how to arrange a cottage style planter.
So, put your feet up and get ready to be inspired by Roost episode 11:

I'm Jenny McFarlane and I'm Senior Digital Editor working across five amazing interiors titles, including Livingetc, Homes and Gardens, Ideal Home, Gardeningetc and Real Homes. I also work on the brands' homes video show, on the Future Homes Network, which is packed full of ideas to help you make the most of your home and garden.
My love of interior design began way back when I was, at a tender age, glued to Changing Rooms on BBC. Fast forward 10 years and I was studying for a degree in textiles at university. After my degree, I lived and worked in the arts in Washington DC. On returning to the UK I kickstarted my career on women's and lifestyle titles such as InStyle, Red, Handbag.com, SUITCASE and LUXE City Guides. Fast forward 5 years on and I was heading up the content strategy and digital presence on interiors brands Good Homes, Grand Designs and ICON.
When it comes to my home's style, I relish finding unique pieces and collecting wall art. I love finding bits that remind me of home (Ireland), places I've visited and things that inspire me or make me feel happy, interspersing them with photos of my favourite humans and postcards from here, there and everywhere.
I'm not interested in my home being really trendy but I want to be surrounded by gorgeous things that remind me of points in time or a good memory or somewhere I want to go. It's more connection for me than looking of-the-moment. Saying that, I pick up a lot of amazing bits and bobs from wonderful high street stores, like Zara Home, Anthropologie, Arket, Habitat, H&M Home, Rockett St George, Trouva... the list goes on...
On a personal note, I'm still really into travelling the globe whenever I can and I have a baby daughter who keeps me on my toes on the daily.
