Monday Morning rolls round again and this week we’re back in the kitchen because there are just so many good ones around and also it’s worth noting that just because it’s a kitchen doesn’t mean there aren’t elements of colour and styling that you can’t take into other rooms of your house. So, above is…

A treat for you this week as we have two houses. It turned out that the two that ended up on this week’s short list had a symmetry of price so I thought we could look at both. The first is the former home of the sculptor Dame Elisabeth Frink, in Dorset, which has recently…

I feel like it’s been a while since we had a look around at what’s new in store and, since it’s a new season and a new month and we didn’t do an interiors round up at the end of the month, I thought we’d have a wander round the shops today. So grab a…

A new week and a new month – how tidy is that? – and a bit of a kitchen dive for you today so let’s go with some colour. I have been writing about interiors for some 20 years now and in that time white has consistently been the most popular colour for a kitchen.…

OK this is it. I know I’ve said it before (every week) but we’re off to Devon. And since there are 10 bedrooms I’m either going to have to open a hotel or you’re coming with me…. It’s Grade II listed, with private gardens and in walking distance of the “wild remote” beaches below. It’s…

Usually I use the last Wednesday of the month to tell you about interior design news belonging to other people. This month I’m going to show you two projects that I’m working on. As you know I’m mostly a writer rather than a doer and, aside from the odd interior design consultation, I have mostly…

Well after a week of travel – first time on a plane for 20 months (I’ll tell you about it on Wednesday) when I flew to Mallorca to start a very exciting interiors job, I thought I’d come back to earth-  literally – with a train today. But this isn’t just any train this (cue…

A little bit of light-hearted fun today. What with launching an online course and a sofa and working two huge interior design projects (I’ll keep you posted but as you read this I will by flying back from Mallorca – scene of one of them) I thought I would just drop this in today as…

This week’s inspiration was begun by the top two pictures – one wallpaper, one paint and then I realised there was a theme developing as I had also promised to show you a couple of the new shots of my house taken by Mark Anthony Fox, who does a lot of the dreamy photography for…
