Colour & Design Inspo from Switzerland & the French Alps

I’ve just returned from a trip to Switzerland to beat the January blues & visit my sister’s new home. It’s a country I’ve never visited before so was keen to see as much of the place as possible in 5 days. We spent the weekend across the border in Chamonix as the boy wanted to see some snow & the town didn’t disappoint. We mooched … Continue reading Colour & Design Inspo from Switzerland & the French Alps

Modern Rustic Airbnb in Spain

Last year I completed an epic remote interior design project, a 3 bedroomed townhouse with 2 bathrooms & a garden. The property is used as a holiday let so all planning, budgeting and shopping lists needed to be completed remotely…from the U.K…for a property in Spain! Sourcing everything took a while as I needed to make sure the products were delivered or in stock & … Continue reading Modern Rustic Airbnb in Spain

Happy New Decade – Hello 2020

Happy New Year!!! It feels like forever since my last blog post. I hope you’ve all had a lovely festive break however you spent it. We had a very quiet one this year and it’s been completely lovely, having time for playing, walks, cooking & movie watching whenever we feel like it…it’s been perfect! I have to admit the towards the back end of last … Continue reading Happy New Decade – Hello 2020

Etsy can be a bit of a minefield when trying to find something special as there is … Continue reading Last Minute Sustainable Gifting with Etsy – AD

Sustainable Festive Gift Wrapping – AD

I had the perfect morning yesterday, wrapping presents to the sound of Christmas songs under the tree with all of the fairy lights lit (this seems such a luxurious thing to do when there is only me in the house). I’ve really tried to buy less this year and wrap a little more sparingly but I still enjoy gift giving and making sure those gifts … Continue reading Sustainable Festive Gift Wrapping – AD

A Natural Christmas Tablescape – AD

The Christmas table is probably my favourite element of decorating the house for Christmas, I love it (probably as I love eating & drinking so want somewhere well dressed to do so)! This year I’ve been very conscious of the throw away elements to a Christmas table, favours, napkins, crackers etc & have tried to cut back on as many of these things as possible. … Continue reading A Natural Christmas Tablescape – AD

Country Living Christmas Fair – AD

Almost 6 years ago to the day (thanks to timehop that I know) I exhibited at the Country Living Christmas fair in Harrogate, it was the first big exhibition I’d attended with my very young (at the time) business & I naively took on the added pressure of designing a roomset for the show’s entrance too (have I ever mentioned how I forgot to book … Continue reading Country Living Christmas Fair – AD
