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

Favorite Things: Brass-Inlay Storage & A Pink Bathroom

Favorite Things: Brass-Inlay Storage & A Pink Bathroom

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, in a good way. We had friends up during the kids’ half term, family the following week, a couples trip to Amsterdam (we stayed in the cutest place – more on that soon), and I managed to share a full house tour in the middle of it all. I’ve also been featured around the web a couple of times by some lovely people, and spotted some lovely things that I can’t keep to… View Post

Get the Look: The Greenery Trend

Get the Look: The Greenery Trend

We are currently in the midst of a self-imposed spending freeze, and to curb my desire to shop/decorate, I’ve been window shopping online instead. Obviously, I found a lot of pretty things, so I’m rounding up a whole host of them to piggy back off my 2017 interior design trends round up post. Starting with green, green, glorious green. I labelled this trend in home decor “Botany” in my last post, but although palm prints can look amazing (like in Whistler Leather’s showroom, above,… View Post

25 Stunning Wall Clocks Under £100 (Mostly)

25 Stunning Wall Clocks Under £100 (Mostly)

I have to admit, I’m taking a bit of artistic license when I say 25 Wall Clocks Under £100. What I should say is, 17 wall clocks under £100 and eight pricier ones. Oh, and two of them aren’t actually wall clocks, they’re standing clocks. But anyway…yay clocks! I’ll just go home now… Psyche…I’m back. Still banging on about clocks. I’ve had this post half-drafted for months, actually, ever since I spotted a fab concrete wall clock at Design Junction back in September.… View Post

Favorite Things: A New Orleans Family Vacation Rental, A Tiny Home & Ugly Shoes

Travel: A New Orleans Family Vacation Home Our New Orleans family vacation was one of my favourite family holidays ever. We traveled there from Chicago on Amtrak – so fun! The only part of the trip that I might have done differently was our accommodation. We stayed in a hotel in the financial district, which was fine, but didn’t give us a very authentic New Orleans experience. This shotgun rental home, in the city’s Lower Garden District, would definitely have solved… View Post

Favorite Things: A Shibori Headboard & A Boho Rental in LA

Finds I am head over heels for this shibori headboard from Urban Outfitters. It’s on sale – reduced from £400 to £276. My next room re-do will be Eleanor’s – we’ve split the kids up and they each have their own bedroom now. If this guy came in a single width, I’d snap it up in an instant for her room. Instead, it might have to be inspiration for a DIY version, if I can think of a way to mimick the look. I also… View Post

Favorite Things: Concrete Lighting Under £175

Favorite Things: Concrete Lighting Under £175

Concrete is obviously having a moment, and I’m all for it. If you love concrete even half as much as I do, and want to incorporate it into your decor, concrete lighting is a really easy option. I chatted about my stunning concrete lamp the other day, but there is a lot of pretty concrete lighting out there right now. Perhaps not as pretty as mine, but still pretty. 😉 I’ve rounded up a few options for you, and they’re all under… View Post

A New Concrete Desk Lamp from Frontal Factory

A New Concrete Desk Lamp from Frontal Factory

I promised one more post about my new work space, because I need to talk about the concrete desk lamp from Frontal Factory. I spotted this concrete and brass beauty at Design Junction. It belongs to a series called Form Follows Function. I got in touch with the designer behind Frontal Factory, Mehmet Birtane, to see if there was any way I could get my hands on one. My concrete desk lamp was one of a very limited number. Fortunately, though,… View Post

Favourite Things: Love Your Home

Favourite Things: Love Your Home

You may remember me raving about how much I love the sofa we bought over summer. It’s the Clementine Chesterfield Sofa Bed from Love Your Home, and I genuinely have nothing but love for it. So much so that I recommended another one of their Chesterfields – the Charlotte – to a recent e-Design client. My love for this company doesn’t end with sofas, though, although they do do sofas – and chairs, and chaise longues – very well. Sofas & Other… View Post
