First look at the plans for our Spain house

Exactly three months ago today we signed the deeds and received the keys to our exciting renovation project in Spain. On the same day our family business premises in the UK flooded meaning Mr LMH had to return leaving Little LMH and I in Spain until the 17th of February.  I shared a little of our plans in the blog post We’re moving to Granada … Continue reading First look at the plans for our Spain house

THE fire pit for small gardens – AD

I am thrilled to announce that s’mores are on the menu this bank holiday Sunday (& probably for the rest of Autumn), thanks to me finding the perfect, contemporary fire pit for a small urban or cottage garden. This little concrete looking oval fire pit comes with the easy-clean black bowl fitted & would look great in a traditional or rustic garden setting. We can’t … Continue reading THE fire pit for small gardens – 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

Sustainable & Styling Dining Chair Edit

I haven’t written about chairs in what seems to me like forever, which is odd since they are my favourite element of an interior design project to source and style. I’m not joking about the chair love, we have quite a number of books about chairs here at LMH and have been known to visit museums around Europe that have great chair collections (I know, … Continue reading Sustainable & Styling Dining Chair Edit

Decking The Halls – 2018

It’s December…finally time to get the house decorated for Christmas and play Christmas music non-stop. I’m so excited, it’s my favourite time of the year and I have to admit there have been some festive decorations creeping into our home over the last week or so but I always leave the tree until the first weekend in December (a girl has to have some boundaries … Continue reading Decking The Halls – 2018

Autumn Home Additions

I always find myself wanting to switch things around in the home come autumn, when creating a cosy ‘hygge’ environment filled with candles and low lighting is all I can think about. I’m the stay at home and hibernate kind of person (with one or two fun Christmas outings added into the diary to force me out). As you know this year I have been … Continue reading Autumn Home Additions

Styling artwork in a rustic space…

Choosing artwork for a modern rustic or industrial style space is as important as finding the perfect reclaimed wood dining table, it can completely change the vibe of the space depending on what look you’re trying to achieve. When you get the artwork in an interior design project right, it should give visitors to the property a real idea of who lives/works there and what … Continue reading Styling artwork in a rustic space…
