The following post contains a paid advertising feature for Funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk and Thejoyofplants.co.uk. I think just about every other email I've received this year starts off with something about 'this crazy situation' or 'unprecedented times'. We all know...

How I Organised My (Tiny) Pantry

Over the last month or so, I've finally finished organising my pantry and when I asked on Instagram Stories if you wanted me to share the results when it was completed, it was a resounding 95% who said yes... I admit I go a little weak-kneed when I see a beautifully...

Autumn Boho Glam Table Setting in Pink and Taupe

Through most of 2018 and 2019, Wayne and I would have at least one Friday night every month where we'd put on our glad rags and head into town for dinner and drinks.  Date night was born for two reasons, really. First, because we'd moved to a new town (Shrewsbury...

Design Advice

If you’ve ever stared into your room and knew something wasn’t quite right but you didn’t know how to fix it, then you’re in the right place. Long ago, I felt exactly the same. I had a million ideas but no idea how to execute them.

With my advice posts, I’m spilling all those interior design secrets that took me years of trial and error to learn. Check out all my how-to’s, tips and tricks here.

My Home

My blog is a place I love to share my own home and there are a wealth of posts about the changes and updates we’ve made both in our current and our previous home with all the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

I catalogue our entire journey of each room through its evolution and so if you love to have a nosy around other people’s homes (and why wouldn’t you?!), then check out all my posts to see what we’re working on next.

The 6 Best Renovation Decisions We’ve Made So Far

The 6 Best Renovation Decisions We’ve Made So Far

As of the end of March, we had lived in our home in Shrewsbury for 2 years and while we haven't actually done as much work to our home as I'd have liked this year due to world events, I wanted to chat about the things we have managed to complete that have had the...

Stuff I Like

If there’s one thing I like shopping for more than anything else, it’s my house. So I’m always on the lookout for beautiful things – from soft furnishings to furniture, accessories, lighting, art and more.

These are the posts where I shout about brands I’ve come across that I adore and pull together fantasy moodboards, my best shopping finds and gorgeous pieces to create the perfect look – from budget bargains to luxury splurges.

Why I’m Tired of the Gendering of the Colour Pink

Why I’m Tired of the Gendering of the Colour Pink

I answer a lot of questions about my home. Because I have put my home online for others to see, I expect the usual questions: "Where did you get [insert thing here]?" "What colour paint is that?" "What are you planning on doing with [insert room name here]?" These are...

Lifestyle

It’s not all just interiors around here. As much as interior design is my biggest passion, I’m a nuanced multi-layered person just like you! I adore travelling, cooking, makeup and beauty products, fashion and sometimes I just need to talk about being a flawed human.

These are the posts I explore topics from my favourite breakfast recipe to what it’s like being an ex-pat to getting a better work-life balance and more.

DIY

I’ve been a big fan of do-it-yourself for a long time both for the cost-savings as well as the gleeful satisfaction of a job well done. But if there’s one thing I’m not a fan of, it’s DIYs that look like DIYs. So you won’t be finding that here.

While I’ve had lots of things I’ve tried that haven’t gone exactly to plan, I only share those projects that have been super successful for me. And while I don’t consider myself a super crafty person, I do love creating things that are really easy to do but also create an amazing end result. You’ll find all my most successful ventures into craft and DIY in these posts and happily, no one will ever know you’ve done it yourself until you proudly tell them so – because you’ll want to, trust me.

DIY Standing Raised Bed Planter

Emboldened by our attempts at making our own raised planter a couple of months ago, I knew we'd be able to tackle something a little bit more complicated - a pair of standing raised planters to sit in front of the kitchen window. If you recall, we've been working on...
