Black kitchen cabinets, large windows with natural linen curtains and wooden dining table and chairs by Neptune.

A round up of pictures that have caught my eye over the last week. And one of the things that struck me, after I had decided on the final five, was that three of them are product shots and so I got to thinking… you know the rest but actually if you like SATC you…

Focusing on kitchens and bathrooms this week as these are the hardest to get right, the most expensive and yet the most important rooms in the house. The key to both of these rooms is not to treat them in isolation. They are part of your home and, as such, must reflect and link with…

A bumper post for you today as it’s a mix of househunter and inspirational rooms and that’s because the house of top interiors stylist Marianne Cotterill is on the market and I thought, since it’s a top location house as well that you might fancy a look. Located in north west London, this six bedroom…

blue mountain school in london's east end

And so we reach July and I have been taken by a meme which keeps popping up on Instagram which reads thus: “Dear July, I don’t want any trouble from you, just come in, sit down, don’t touch anything and keep your mouth shut”. And I really can’t think of anything more apt at the…

two pairs of curtains in one room, both blue pattern with a bold blue and linen tablecloth. styling by sarita sharma for clarke and clarke

Monday morning and let’s start with the bedroom because since this lockdown started eleventy billion years ago I no longer have to get up at 6.30am to wake the 16yo for school and frankly I’m now not sure I will ever be able to get up before 8 o’clock again. OK sometimes 9… anyway moving…

Emerald green Chinoiserie wallpaper by de Gournay with floral sofa, textured rug and glass coffee table.

Starting with a glorious riot of wallpaper this week. De Gournay handpainted papers are so pretty and this bright green can’t fail to lift the spirits. This was chosen by Matthew Williamson for his flagship London store (although I confess I don’t know if it’s still there as that was several years ago).  I could…

Last week we needed calming spaces and then shortly after that the world basically exploded and everyone is shouting at everyone else. With just and understandable cause it seems.

A look at some inspiring room schemes with Kate Watson-Smyth. This home office features a terracotta filing cabinet is a darker shade than the walls and the green cupboard provides a glorious jolt of contrast. #homeoffice #terracottascheme #madaboutthehouse

Come on in. Let’s go for a calm and quiet stroll through a collection of beautiful rooms and take a moment to look at what appeals (or doesn’t in each room). We have the time to plan so we might as well really look at what works for us in each of these and see…
