Dream big little one…

A nursery to dream about…. The amazing and uber-exclusive nursery designers Dragons of Walton Street have just opened a space at Harrods, meaning their lust-inducing designs are now rather more accessible than they used to be. Dragons of Walton Street are the designers behind a number of royal and celeb nurseries – which is all well and good, but…

A bigger space for Munchkin…

Making a space more spacious…. Now Munchkin is one it seemed an appropriate time to do what I had always expected I would eventually have to do, make some more space in her nursery. The neat little ex-dressing room we turned into a nursery served fine when she was smaller, but now she needs more room to roam…

Invite Only…

When it came to the invitations for Munchkin’s christening, I wanted something that was simple and understated (this isn’t a wedding after all), but playful and friendly too. The wonderful English Stamp Company will make bespoke stamps for you, with up to ten lines of varying fonts and size, meaning you can easily make your own…

China in your hand…

I have a very eclectic taste in pottery and china. I’ve tried minimal white chic, I’ve tried matchy spatchy style – and in the end I just get bored of everything. So I now tend to find designs – or designers – that I like, and slowly collect pieces that I enjoy using. Sometimes I…

Loft Living Style…

Our bedroom is at the top of the house, essentially in the eaves, which means we have no loft, (which is fine by me…spiders…mega shudder…). It also means that there are stunning black beams across the ceiling and all along the walls, creating little nooks and crannies, (and certain peril if you’re above five foot…

Little details…

Our quirky little cottage is a unique space – and a hopeless one if you want to try and effect some sort of instant feng shui and interior design perfection. Instead, I tend to take little corners of space, and get them right, before moving onto the next one, the hope being that, eventually, every…

A warm welcome…

In our London house, we had the standard teeny tiny shared hallway, with several doors in it, that lead to a flight of stairs and then suddenly you were in the kitchen. No gentle welcome, no friendly knock at the door. I was never really able to welcome people to the house and I longed…

Signs of Easter…

As Easter approaches, I wanted to reflect this at home. While we’re having a relatively quiet Easter, it’s still the perfect opportunity to welcome the new season into the house and change out the red and burgundies of winter colours, for the yellow and pinks of Spring… I started with tulips, daffodils and potted primroses using…

How does your garden centre grow…?

The wonderous Burford Garden Centre is about 20 minutes drive from us, which is just far to enough to ensure I don’t visit daily but not so far that I can’t go regularly. It’s a wonderful place to get inspiration for your home, your garden and your wardrobe, as well as just to dream about…
