A Graphic Light Box and a Mid-Century Dresser: Turning the Kids’ Shared Bedroom into a Boy’s Room

I’ve made a few updates to the kids’ room I made over last Spring. We had them sharing the space for a year or so, but now we’ve moved the wee one into her own room and this room is inhabited solely by our seven-year-old son. It didn’t take much to make it his rather than theirs. The first thing was to move one of the beds out. That wall felt really unbalanced once it was gone, but moving the bookcase… 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.

How to DIY a Waney/Live Edge Desk

Our bedroom has built-in cabinets either side of a Velux window. They’re handy for storage, but they were a catch-all for clutter. I felt like they were crying out to be better utilised.

Naively, I thought it would be… View Post

e-Design: A Vintage-Inspired Boys’ Bedroom

e-Design: A Vintage-Inspired Boys’ Bedroom

A couple of months ago, I did an e-Design for a shared boys’ bedroom. They’re the oldest two (age six and eight) in a family of five children. Their bedroom is big and bright, with a gorgeous fireplace and lovely high ceilings. It had been newly painted in Farrrow & Ball’s Ammonite (a soft, warm grey), and had new carpet installed, so the design was really all about finishing touches to create a calmer, more cohesive space. They listed their needs/wants… View Post

ORC Week 6 | Neutral Master Bedroom Reveal

ORC Week 6 | Neutral Master Bedroom Reveal

Our neutral master bedroom makeover is finished, on time and everything! This last week has been crazy but it all came together, and I love how the room turned out. To recap, we rent a little three story house in London, and our bedroom is on the top floor. It’s a lovely light-filled space, and I wanted to keep it bright and neutral but bring in lots of layers and texture. You can check out all the progress posts here:… View Post
