Black Chalkboard Fridge

28th January 2016
write-on fridge

I can’t tell you how long I have been looking for one of these. I’ve seen them on Pinterest and I’ve seen DIY versions but I’ve never actually seen a proper one that you can buy. After all, who’s going to mess with painting a fridge which already cost hundreds of pounds. What if it…

Now I don’t usually post about sales as they come and go and these posts remain FOR EVER, which is quite a weird thought but still, I thought I would make an exception today as I have been meaning to mention this company to you for a while and it turns out they have a…

One of the questions I am asked almost more than any other is where to find bar stools. Everyone who is redoing their kitchen wants an island and everyone wants a stool to put at it. And so many of the bar stools out there are just horrible. For years we had two old Singer…

This is the new collection from Sainsburys that will be in store by the end of February. Now you know I love a bit of black and white crockery and this, with its echoes of Marimekko, is stunning, not that I’ve ever used a tagine (I have a thing about fruit and meat) but it…

cordello home throw

As the temperatures have suddenly plummeted it seemed like the right time to show you this gorgeous throw from my latest shop discovery Cordello Home. Doesn’t it look perfect in my sitting room? It was supposed to be a loan just for photographing and styling but I’ll be DAMNED if I give it back. I…

Feather Light

12th January 2016
Black Feathers Light by Mineheart lifestyle low res

This is one of those “if I had a boudoir moments” because if I did I would surely have this light in it. Isn’t it a fabulous thing? It looks like a party skirt – in fact I’m sure I saw one similar on Net a Porter a few weeks ago. With a light like…

Dual Purpose Dining Table

6th January 2016
qubis folding table

I do love a multi-purpose piece of furniture and when I saw this table from Qubis it made me think that if I’d had one of these all those years I spent working at the kitchen table then perhaps I wouldn’t have needed to convert the loft to get a desk. Well not quite, but…
