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

Summer Eclectic Home Tour

Summer Eclectic Home Tour

I’ve got a bumper post for you lovely lot today. As part of the Summer Eclectic Home Tour hosted by gorgeous Jess of Domicile 37, I’m sharing a few updates I’ve made in my dining area and my master bedroom, and a sneak peek at my never-before-seen-on-the-blog kitchen. Links to all the lovely spaces you can see above are at the bottom of this post. If you’ve hopped over here from The Rath Project, hi and welcome. I’m Lizzie. I… View Post

Low-Key Christmas Decorating

Low-Key Christmas Decorating

I stick with simple when it comes to Christmas decorating. I use the same stuff every year, and generally only add to it when I can find pretty things in the sales after Christmas. Tree decorating is a whole family affair, so it’s full of cardboard and craft paper creations. It’s even got tinsel on it, at the kids’ request. There are bits with loads of baubles clumped together and other bits that are rather sparse, and the beads are… View Post

My Name Is Lizzie and I Have a Problem With Chairs

Right now, I have fourteen dining chairs in my house, which is six less than I did have. I started with six white wheel-back chairs. I never got a photo of them in this house, but you can see them in the background of our last house’s living room. I bought them right after we moved from Chicago because we had no chairs and we needed chairs. I liked that they were white, but they were more shabby chic than I… View Post

Some of my Favorite ORC Rooms

Some of my Favorite ORC Rooms

There was so much good stuff that came out of this round of the One Room Challenge, and I’m going to share a few of my faves today. I’ll stick with my top three of the twenty featured designers. I am head over heels for Waiting On Martha’s new team office – I love industrial spaces anyway, and this one is so wonderfully calm, warm and refined – such a lovely juxtaposition… Making It Lovely’s bedroom/den space is just dreamy. And again with… View Post

Mood Board: Dining and Living Room Design Plans

Mood Board: Dining and Living Room Design Plans

So we have a deal. J is allowed to buy some fancy (yet, in my humble opinion, unnecessary) computer thing and I am allowed my equally fancy (yet also not entirely necessary) Chesterfield! Woot! I’m not sure he really understands what he’s agreed to, but I’m going with it, and quick, before he changes his mind. In light of that, I’ve nailed down my dining and living room design plans for the new house. It’s long and narrow – similar to our… View Post

Mood Board Collective | Coral & Navy

Mood Board Collective | Coral & Navy

I’m part of a Mood Board Collective, where multiple interiors bloggers take the same inspiration image and use it to create a mood board. This month, I picked the inspo, and chose a navy, coral and gold colour scheme that has spawned some gorgeous room designs. Emmerson & Fifteenth | Dining Room Mood Board I seriously love what everyone came up with month. For mine, I pulled together a coral and navy mood board with mustard accents. The scheme is… View Post

How to Organise A Small Kitchen

How to Organise A Small Kitchen

So the deal is: we have a decent kitchen as far as finishes go, but it doesn’t have a whole lot of space. Out of the last four places we’ve lived, this one definitely has the smallest kitchen. Actually, each kitchen we’ve lived with has been smaller than the last. It became a problem in our last loft, because we’d amassed so much stuff. Decluttering & Organising I donated some bits but listed most a lot of stuff on Craigslist… View Post

Mood Board Collective | Tangerine Orange & Mint

Mood Board Collective | Tangerine Orange & Mint

I am very excited to be joining a group of interiors bloggers this month for a recurring mood board design challenge. Each go, one of us picks an inspiration photo as a starting point for a mood board. There are no other parameters – the design can go anywhere. Today’s mood board inspiration image has a bright colour palette of tangerine orange and mint. Emmerson & Fifteenth | Office Mood Board I created a feminine office space using an eclectic… View Post
