ORC Week 2 | Living Room: Stripping & Painting

Whaddup. Week One of the One Room Challenge is D-O-N-E, and I’ve made solid progress on my living room makeover. Here’s the living room mood board, if you need a refresher. I linked all the sources in last week’s One Room Challenge post, and dished on the floor plan and a bunch of before pictures. I wanted to tackle the fireplace wall first, mainly because that was the most intimidating from a DIY perspective. Speaking of before pictures… it had… View Post

UAL Graduate Diploma Interior Design | An Honest Review

UAL Graduate Diploma Interior Design | An Honest Review

From 2017-2018, I took a Graduate Diploma in Interior Design at Chelsea College of Arts, which is part of UAL / University of the Arts London. I got a bunch of questions about why I was doing it, what it was like, and whether it was worth it, so today I’m dishing the deets. Chelsea’s Graduate Diploma Interior Design is the equivalent of the third year of an interior design undergraduate course. It’s full time – around 35 hours in… View Post

ORC Week 1 | Eclectic Living Room Plans

ORC Week 1 | Eclectic Living Room Plans

It’s time for another One Room Challenge! This time around, the living room in our Edwardian semi is getting a makeover. Woot. If you’re not familiar, the ORC is a biannual event where a whole bunch of interior “influencers” transform a room over (usually) six weeks, posting progress deets every week. This time round, we get an extra couple of weeks, because of the Corona sh*tstorm. So much amazing design inspo comes out of this event, and I’ve loved swooning… View Post

Long Time, No Design

Long Time, No Design

Ummm HI! It’s been a while. Two and a half years, actually. Things happened, I got busy. I completely dropped off the face of the blog world. I made a few half-arsed Instagram posts for a few months, tried to keep up with my favourite design reads, and then it all tailed off and… nadda. I’m not going to launch back in with an essay on where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing. One day I might… but for… View Post

Do Capsule Wardrobes Actually Work?

Do Capsule Wardrobes Actually Work?

I hopped on the capsule wardrobe trend two years ago. It took me a few seasons to curate my clothing collection to the point where it might be considered a proper capsule wardrobe, and you can check it out further down. But now that I’ve got it almost nailed down, I thought I’d talk about how successful it’s been. What is a Capsule Wardrobe? On the off-chance that you missed that whole thing and want to know what a capsule… View Post

Inspiring Design: A Neutral Scandinavian Apartment

Inspiring Design: A Neutral Scandinavian Apartment

Man, this whole trying-to-be-productive-even-though-the-kids-are-off-school is just not really working out. I’ve basically given up. I’m just going to embrace the fact that I will be confined to play parks surrounded by screaming children or covered in glitter for the next week or two. Actually, as I write this, I am in fact sitting in a horrendous indoor play area. It’s so loud, you guys – audibly and visually. But look – this Scandinavian apartment isn’t! It’s light and bright and… View Post

The Difference The Right Window Treatments Can Make & A Boy’s Room Mood Board

Well, hi! I did not plan to be away from the blog for as long as I have been. We just got back from three weeks of visiting family and friends Stateside, and although I had grand plans to blog over there, it just didn’t happen. I’ve been working on lots of very exciting things though, and I’ve got a backlog of fun stuff to share with you, starting with a few updates to the boy’s room! This space got some… View Post

An Afternoon with Sweetpea & Willow

An Afternoon with Sweetpea & Willow

I went to the most fun blogger & press event at Sweetpea & Willow a couple of weeks ago. Their Isleworth showroom is only about three miles down the road from me in South West London, but I’d had no idea it was there. It’s packed with lovely things, and very glam. Now, glam is not my usual interiors repertoire but, as you might be aware, I tend to like all the things. And there was a lot to like.… View Post
