We’re going for a nose round a celebrity home this week. We don’t do this very often because they are usually, it seems to me, so over the top in some way that while it might be nice to have a poke about you wouldn’t really want to live in any of them as there’s…

I don’t know about you but for me this plant thing is really taking hold. I was looking at a picture of my kitchen the other day and thought it looked really stark and then I realised because it was an old one taken before the fiddle leaf fig took up residence. The Mad Husband…

Well last week’s property went down like a lead balloon didn’t it? Hopefully you’ll like this week’s choices better. This is De Montalt Mill, in Bath, which is a four bedroom maisonette about ten miles from Bristol and is on the market for offers in excess of £850,000. You get the ground and lower ground…

Today’s selection of beautiful rooms is definitely giving me house envy. But, at the same time, they are good for inspiration. Not that I need any incentive to change my house. I would say we are in a perpetual state of “nearly there” and I can’t decide if that’s because that’s probably true for everyon,e…
