The Househunter: Room by Room

28th September 2018

Seeing as we appear to be having a late burst of unseasonal sunshine – due entirely to the fact that I bought a swishy new raincoat at the beginning of the week  (you can thank me later) I have decided that we shall start this week’s househunter tour on a boat. But this isn’t just…

How to Create a Trend-proof Bathroom

Fashions come and go but when it comes to interior design we don’t want to be changing things every season. And, as much as we might like to be aware of the trends, we don’t want to pick something for our homes that looks completely out of date two years later. One way to get…

The Househunter: Room by Room

14th September 2018

Morning morning, and two very different properties this week. We’re going to head up to Scotland first to fulfill my delusions of grandeur with this pretty castle in Callender, Perthshire. It’s on with Savills, for £1,750,000 and technically it’s a baronial house not a castle apparently but either way it’s got turrets and it’s pretty…
