Cat Quirks: What Meisha has taught me about living with a Bengal

The following contains a paid advertising promotion for Whiskasยฎ. All images and thoughts my own. Meisha is, for all intents and purposes, my cat. Or rather, I'm her human. She tolerates Wayne in my absence, but she doesn't much care for anyone else. Except for our...

How to Conceal Cables Behind Leggy Furniture

I know its not just me when I say that cables (or wires or cords, whatever you want to call them) hanging all over the place is one of my biggest home design pet peeves. Thankfully, I've come up with a simple solution that means we can still access everything easily...

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.

5 Ways to Style a Small Sofa

5 Ways to Style a Small Sofa

The following post is a paid advertising feature for Aquaclean fabrics. Small sofas can be a total saviour when it comes to creating your dream living room. While many sofas on the market look great in the (unusually large) showrooms, getting them home can be a...

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.

My Living Room Midi-Makeover Reveal in Autumn Colours

My Living Room Midi-Makeover Reveal in Autumn Colours

I mentioned we were going to be replacing the flooring and the sofas in the living room on my Instagram not long ago, referring to it as a 'mini-refresh'. Well, I was very quickly corrected by someone who said, "A mini-refresh is some new cushions!" Ha! And I realised...

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.

In Defence of Anaglypta

In Defence of Anaglypta

When I moved to the UK way back in 2001, I admit, I had no idea what Anaglypta was, I just knew that in American homes, it wasn't particularly common as far as I was aware. I saw it in plenty of homes here, though, and after a while, came to understand it was...

Pets? Kids? Yes, You Can Finally Own a Velvet Sofa

Pets? Kids? Yes, You Can Finally Own a Velvet Sofa

The following is a paid advertising feature for Aquaclean Fabric. I've loved velvet furniture for pretty much as long as I can remember. Over the last decade, I've had 4 different velvet sofas, 1 velvet headboard, at least 4 or 5 sets of velvet curtains and I can't...

Colourful Table Lamp Round Up

Colourful Table Lamp Round Up

However strange as it may sound, I felt a little bit hesitant when I ordered my bright orange lamp for my living room midi-makeover. After trying a few different lamps I already owned in that corner, I realised what I really needed was a statement colour in that spot...

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.

How to (Really!) Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions

How to (Really!) Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions

I'm not someone who makes a long list of resolutions each year but I'm definitely feeling the 'new year/new decade' momentum at the moment - are you? There are so many ideas floating around in my head (and in the notebooks and post-it notes on my desk) and I'd love to...

How to Enjoy the Home You Have Right Now

I don't think I know that many people who are absolutely happy with their home as it stands right at this instant. There's pretty much always something to do, something that's not working, big plans for the future, items to save for.  Despite the fact that I feel...

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 Double Gold Hoop Fringed Wall Hanging

Obviously, summer is my prime 'DIY' time because I'm sharing two DIY projects in a row but this one is far easier than laying a whole parquet floor! I wanted a few bits for a small gallery wall I'll be putting up in the dining room and I didn't just want artwork so...
