Perch Light

perche light by umut yamac

Given that I’m married to someone who professes to be afraid of birds ( I know –  him and David Beckham both – they have soooo much in common I can’t tell you) it’s ironic that I keep finding things I really love with birds on them. Remember the tweetie light? This Perch Light, by…

abbey manor evesham, knight frank

Something about the nights drawing in and the weather getting colder makes me think of baronial halls and roaring fireplaces. In the summer, I feel light and contemporary and open plan. At this time of year I’m all about the grandeur. So how’s this for starters? Looks impressive but actually you’re just buying a wing…

CP Hart Bathrooms

artelinea furniture vero from CP Hart

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the average bathroom which is used by more than one person must be in want of more storage. It is also true, that even though some people prefer to call it the smallest room in the house for strange euphemistic reasons – ie they don’t want to say…

Dulux Colour of the Year 2015: Copper Blush

ColourOfTheYear2015CopperBlush_Pic4

This shade is one of my favourite colours in the spectrum. There’s masses of it in my wardrobe and it’s only a matter of time before it reaches my walls. I am particularly in love with this image below pairing it with a strong charcoal which just tones it down a little and adds a…

10 Beautiful Rooms

black open shelving

Why don’t more of us have black baths? I love the freestanding tub in the image above and suddenly a white one seems so dull. Mind you this is beautifully styled with the concrete wall and copper piping but still, it’s food for thought isn’t it. And as we seem to be starting with a…

Best of the Mad House

hague blue from house and garden

Now I know that while I publish a post every day many of you don’t have the time (or the inclination) to drop in every day and see what’s new, so today I’m going to make it easy for you. Here’s a round up of the week. The best bits, as they say on various…

I Feel Smug Shop

ifeelsmug.com products

No, not me (well not all the time!) but the name of a shop. It’s in north London (cue more jokes about smugness from those not currently residing in this – I mean that – part of the capital). Anyway, it’s Saturday so it’s lovely to have a virtual browse round a shop if you’re…

Sometimes, when reality is all a little too much, or, more honestly, when my delusions of grandeur spiral totally out of control, I browse around the more wildly improbable reaches of the estate agents. The end where, in an ideal world, no single property should ever be. But, just sometimes, it’s fun to look. Remember,…
