I’ve found a milkman – AD

Over the last month I’ve been trialling the milk (and more) delivery service from McQueens Dairies. For quite some time I’ve been trying to find a way to make sustainable changes to all of the plastic we acquire from milk, especially since having our son which has more than doubled the amount we purchase. I’m not a huge fan of milk, I don’t like cold … Continue reading I’ve found a milkman – AD

Conscious indoor greenery – AD

I’ve always been a huge fan of bringing nature indoors with cut flowers, house plants and dried stems (with the more recent addition of preserved flowers thanks to discovering Shida). In recent years, since we’re all starting to become more conscious of the impact purchases have on our environment I’m trying to sway from weekly cut flowers, instead just using them as a special treat … Continue reading Conscious indoor greenery – AD

Holiday Let Spain – Interior Design Project

This Spanish townhouse on the Southern coast of Spain has been a holiday rental for some years but was in major need of some updating. I used the traditional base of marble, terracotta and white paint to build a tropical rustic vibe for the house that perfectly suits its 5 minute walk proximity to the beach. The property is around 15 years old with a … Continue reading Holiday Let Spain – Interior Design Project
