The builders are back! Today I had planned to show you the culmination of a project I have been working on for a year but for publicity reasons I’m not allowed to share until next week (hopefully) so I’m going to give you an idea of what we are doing in the bedroom. Oddly, although…

It’s eight weeks since we moved house, one room is almost done and today we embark on a big push before Christmas. It’s going to be hellish but it should take five weeks and we will have one bedroom finished, two more almost done and the sitting room begun. It’s slightly chaotic as we are…

Something about this house immediately caught my eye and I can’t decide if it was the shape or the colour or perhaps the garden. Whatever the case it deserved a closer look.

We’re off to the North-East of England this week to this very pretty three bedroom former station house in Rowlands Gill, Tyne & Wear. It’s on the market with Inigo for £580,00 and has three bedrooms arranged over nearly 1,300 sq ft on three storeys. The house is tall for its setting because it was…

It’s Monday, it’s raining (in this corner of North London at least, I’m going to assume Monday is almost universal) and we are going to look at some warm and cosy spaces to cheer up this gloomy day.

In contrast to last week’s colourful London townhouse, this week we are heading to the Yorkshire Dales to a remote farmhouse billed as being perfect for anyone who fancies living off-grid.
