Stylishly Sustainable

There has been a lot of talk in the British press recently about reducing our waste, in particular single use plastics, something that we as upcyclers have been working on for a long time is finally becoming main stream (even the Queen is now on board). As always I believe that these changes should be made in the most stylish way we can afford to … Continue reading Stylishly Sustainable

A reading list to get us through to spring

That’s it…I’m officially hibernating until spring begins (I don’t actually think my toes have been warm since before Christmas)! This time of year makes me want copious amounts of tea and some really good reads, so I’ve decided to share what I’ve been reading and what’s next on my list. I picked up a copy of Warehouse Home back in September when I visited the … Continue reading A reading list to get us through to spring

Bathroom finishing touches

Now whilst we did pretty much complete the bathroom makeover last month there was one (pretty important) element we had forgotten to order…towels!

Boxpark Dubai

Dubai isn’t the first place in the world you think of when looking for industrial, salvaged style so I was pretty surprised when researching our trip to Dubai that it had its very own Boxpark. It provides a welcome contrast from the glamour of the malls and hotels in the city, bringing the colour, fun design and amazing eateries we have come to expect from … Continue reading Boxpark Dubai
