I have always been incredibly passionate about anything to do with homes and interiors. Hubby and I have lived together in a few homes now and my style has changed quite a lot in all that time. We have owned a modern flat, a Georgian home in Chester, a country cottage in North Wales and now we are in a new-build family home in Worcestershire. My…

Now that the light nights are here I appear to have lost my Husband. To outside. To the lawn, the borders, the veg plot, the flowers. Pottering here and there! He never used to be ‘that’ into gardening before but nowadays he is getting quite precious and proud about our little bit of land behind our new-build family home – where we spend a lot…

All that glitters is not gold? Well right now in interior design – it IS. Gold is very much on trend – and bling is most definitely back! I am loving this trend myself currently and enjoying introducing some accessories into my own, modern home. I think that, despite it’s perception, faux-gold decor can work really well in a family home and add in some seriously cool…

Last week the sun shone through our living room bay windows all day and it felt so much like spring! It was a glorious day and quite warm. According to the Met Office it officially arrives on the 20th March 2017, which isn’t long at all. January and February have felt as though they have gone on forever and I’m definitely ready for a change. Here are some…

For a lot of parents, designing a child’s room is a wonderful and generous experience. I like the idea of putting together a special place just for the kid (or kids, if you have several!), and it’s fun to put together a space just for their benefit. Plus, you can indulge a few latent childhood passions along the way—you may love zoo animals, and this is your…

Shopping for designer chairs requires a bit more effort and research than just picking up a few items at a mass-market retailer. Think of it as an investment—you’re going to be spending on something that’s meant to last you a long time, if not forever. But to get the most enjoyment out of your designer chairs, you will need to give some serious thought to…

I am feeling so ready and very much in the mood for spring time now that March is almost upon us. Once the lighter evenings start I want to strip away all the cosier decor around my home – like sinking into cushions and throws whilst cradling large mugs of hot chocolate. In favour of pretty yellow vases, white flowers and green plants. To celebrate the onset of…

Since we moved into our new build home 6 months ago, the living room has looked very ‘unfinished’. We have put a fireplace in, and had the walls painted but the main issue has been the large corner sofa. It fitted into our last home beautifully, and was perfect for relaxing on and entertaining, but in our new living space it just doesn’t fit and…

We have recently been away for a week to visit and stay in a cottage in the beautiful Cotswolds. It’s only an hour or so now from our new Worcestershire home and nearby to some of Hubby’s family. It is such a stunning part of the UK (one of my favourite places) with all the honey-coloured stone buildings and cottages. Breathtaking homes and gardens, and some amazing architecture.…
