These Mondays do seem to rush round fast don’t they? So here we are again and I thought I would do a bathroom special this week. I see so many wonderful bathrooms and they’re all so different and yet it’s a room that we all have so it’s good to have a look at lots…

Monday Inspiration: Beautiful Rooms

ochre pouf and old painting by @n0.17house

Starting today with a bright burst of yellow as the clocks went back yesterday in the UK and although I’m typing this on a beautifully sunny Autumn morning (albeit with no idea what time it actually is) it might all have gone to winter by the time you are reading this in 24 hours time.…

Monday Inspiration: Beautiful Rooms

21st October 2019
A look of some favourite beautiful rooms with Kate Watson-Smyth. This bedroom has a black painted ceiling but, in a clever touch, so is the coving all the way round. This has the effect of softening the hard line you get when the wall hits the ceiling at right angles and also bends the ceiling slightly down over the walls making it look higher.

Beautiful Rooms: A splash of green

7th October 2019
In this room the ceiling is gold which matches the French bed perfectly while the walls are a soft creamy pink. The wall behind the bed has been panelled to create the look of a giant bedhead while the freestanding wardrobe has been painted to match so the room looks cohesive and pretty. #greendecor #bedroom #madaboutthehouse

Green is all anyone is talking about at the moment; whether it’s colour of the year, our impact on the planet or new paint ranges so I thought we would use that as excuse to look at some greenspiration today and perhaps if you are thinking of incorporating this colour into your space it might…
