How to Curate a Cohesive Collection of Home Accessories

I had a friend recently remark after my 'purple to mink' living room makeover that my accessories seem to go well no matter what colour the walls are. After thinking about this for a while, I came to realise that there are a few very specific reasons for why that is...

So as I mentioned in this post, I decided rather last-minute that somehow, just before work was meant to start in our new extension and kitchen and dining room renovation, I was going to squeeze in a bit of a makeover for our living room. I have big plans for the...

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.

How to Style a Bedroom Chest of Drawers

When you consider that our bedrooms are our most intimate spaces - the place we start our days and retreat to before sleep - its a shame that it's one area in our home that we often neglect. And I get it, I really do. It's rarely seen by anyone outside our immediate...

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.

An Update on Our Kitchen/Diner Extension!

It's been a while since I've just done a blog post telling you what's been going on around here so while there may not be many pretty pictures, I did want to share an update for what will probably be the biggest project we've ever undertaken. One thing I've always...

Refreshing Rooms with Something Old, Something New

I think it's a combination of shorter days and the loss of sparkle that Christmas brings, but every year in January, after the Christmas decorations all come down, my home feels a bit flat. What I tend to do is give my spaces a little bit of a shakeup so they feel...

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.

Animal Magnetism: Animal Print Home Accessories

It is no secret that I love good animal print. Leopard has been one of my favourite patterns for years and years and I've used it repeatedly in my own home. As someone who's loved it for a long time, I probably have a bit of 'confirmation bias' but one thing I've...

17 Cute and Affordable Storage Solutions

Like so many other people, I binged watched Marie Kondo's Netflix series in the first few weeks of January. To be fair to us, we did well before we moved house last year, ridding ourselves of so many items we no longer needed. I donated loads to charity, gave plenty...

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.

Winter in the Northern Hemisphere can be a tough one. In November and December, I tend to distract myself from the shorter days and longer nights by looking forward to Christmas and New Year, throwing myself physically and mentally into preparing, decorating my home...

Blogging

I’ve been blogging since 2010 – that’s practically a dinosaur in this industry. Long before Instagram or Pinterest was even around, I’ve been creating content and sharing it with thousands of people online. I’ve learned a hell of a lot about blogging in that time and have had to continuously adapt in an ever-changing world.

I often share my tips with my fellow bloggers so whether you’ve just started your blog, are a bit of a seasoned pro or even if your just curious about what happens here behind the scenes, you can check out these posts to learn more about this crazy, fast-changing industry we call home.

Why I Hate Being Called an ‘Influencer’

Ughhh... "Influencer". I swear every time I hear that word, I die a little inside. The word is pretty new, after all, and I've been doing this blogging lark for more than 8 years. I never got into it to make money and while the blog has grown and yes, opportunities...
