Home Style

I have a fascination with styling homes and with interior design. I did want to be an interior designer for a while, but other interests took over! My love for interior design remains and on ‘Home Style’ I aim to share posts which feature accessories and styling ideas to help you make a house a truly lovely home.

Whether you’re looking for a particular accessory for a certain room, some styling advice or ideas on how you can update and freshen up a tired room, I hope my blog posts will inspire and motivate you! I feature some well-known brands alongside some newer and innovative designers you may not have heard of.

A Guide To Finding Your Dream Duvet
A Guide To Finding Your Dream Duvet

I spend quite a lot of time in our bedroom as we have our home office in one area of the room. Once I’ve finished my computer work I often sprawl papers and books on the bed for a ‘wind-down’ read, sometimes sneakily climbing under the duvet for a few minutes too! I love a huge comfy bed and think there’s nothing…
