This has proved one of the most popular posts this year with many of you taking to instagram to describe your own red threads (rarely are they actually red) so I thought it might be useful to bring it back for anyone who missed it the first time around.  Some weeks ago I wrote about…

To West London and a rather fabulous three bedroom property designed by Frederick Wheeler in the 1890s to “suit the requirements of bachelor artists” and there’s so much to unpick in that sentence that all I’m going to say is that it really needs to be bought by a woman. Maybe even a woman who…

Certainly my half-Swedish friend is always telling me we should visit and, were it not for the pandemic…

So far this year we’ve done small flat with no original features, a new build and a narrow house, all of which have, I hope, provided useful pointers and inspiration for your own homes. This week we’re just going pretty. I love this house and while it may not be applicable for many of you,…

Right we’re going aspirational for this week (after last week’s post on how to add character) but I’ve chosen this one because I think there is value in it for everyone and we will be focusing on the downstairs rather than the numerous bedrooms. And to those who have asked for a wider variety of…
