Spring has finally arrived (even if the weather still seems a little undecided on certain days!) and I’m on a mission to get ahead with our garden this year. We’ve already had a major tidy of certain areas, and our garden path, patio and flower beds are looking much neater and tidier. I’ve moved a few plants around and tidied…

Bloomsbury Children’s Books – New Titles Spring 2017

I love March, it’s the first month in a new year when I really get a sense of spring’s imminent arrival! Everything seems to come into life, and new interests and hobbies seem so much more attractive as the days get longer and slightly warmer! My children both love books, and whilst they have old favourites which they return to…

How do you go about approaching a new interior design project or update? I tend to start with magazines, catalogues and my Pinterest account… All offer plenty of design inspiration, and from there I can identify a style or colour scheme I like… It’s then about sourcing the right products, whether they’re paints, carpets, furniture or accessories… Nothing beats seeing those…

How To Add Instant Curb Appeal
How To Add Instant Curb Appeal

I always think that the first impression you have of a property is the most important. A first view of a house is a little bit like a first handshake, it sets the scene! The inside of the property is more like a equivalent to the human voice, it’s where the initial impression deepens and character emerges! Whether you are trying…

It’s a Shed Thing
It’s a Shed Thing

Last week I actually ventured into our shed… It was the first time in ages, and I was struck by what a cool space it is! It’s bright and has some lovely light coming through the window! At present it’s full of our children’s garden toys, and a few odds-and-ends which I’m never sure where to store! It’s a Shed…

It’s that time of the year (well, almost!) when spring cleaning starts to become a priority! I generally declutter prior to a spring clean, and this week I’m tackling our master bedroom.

The Butterfly Dance: A Review
The Butterfly Dance: A Review

Keeping with my recent ‘Spring’ focus on the blog, I thought I’d share a beautiful new book which I received from Bloomsbury this week! My daughter, aged 6, fell upon it as soon as I took it out of the envelope! She somewhat prematurely thanked me for treating her – such was her enthusiasm for this beautifully illustrated book! The…
