Mad About … Loft Style

Well here we are again. It’s December already and this year I have decided to make it about the best of the Mad House. This is partly because everyone’s too busy to read blogs at the moment and partly because I was looking up an old post the other day and I thought: there’s a…

The Househunter 2/5/14

Time for our weekly dose of property porn – yes it is don’t pretend you haven’t thought that before. It’s that moment when you realise that instead of spending the last few pounds of your pay on a flash top for going out you’d rather buy a new cushion instead. This post is for you.…

Time for our weekly dose of fantasy househunting. So where shall we take our dream wallets and accommodating bank managers this week? Well how about to this newly built property in Wandsworth, south London? It’s on the market with The Modern House for £1,695,000 and has four bedrooms arranged over two floors. I love this idea…

Vintage Industrial Shelving

Industrial furniture can be tricky to bring into a home for anyone who doesn’t actually live in a warehouse. The key is to find pieces that nod to the look, or are based on the idea without being too pastiche. This sofa has done that. For those of you that have been following the ongoing…

Vintage Metal Bathroom Cabinet

I recently wrote about a new book by stylist Joanna Thornhill which is all about tips and tricks to make your home more you. It’s aimed at those in rented accommodation and first time buyers who have no money left to buy furniture once they’ve bought the walls and roof. I felt at the time,…

Gold and Copper Industrial Stools

An industrial stool spray painted in copper or gold metallic paint. What could be lovelier? It comes in two heights as well so you can use at a kitchen island or at the table as extra seating. There are three colours, iron, gold and copper. If I’m honest the iron would go best in my…
