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

A mix of beautiful rooms for you this week with no particular theme. 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…

Beautiful Rooms: A Dash of Mustard

Kate Watson-Smyth looks at ways of injecting touches of mustard to scheme. Here a pale pink bedroom with navy headboard and side tables has the simple addition of mustard cushions to liven the scheme. #mustardaccents #madaboutthehouse #bedroom

Well now are you sitting comfortably with washed hands and ready to take our weekly stroll through some beautiful rooms. If we’re all going to be quarantined soon then we’re going to need all the inspiration we can get and I’m starting this week with a look at how a dash of mustard can just…

Morning to you all and I hope you are all ok after the battering from Storm Dennis over the weekend. We discovered a leak in the top bathroom which is coming down into our bedroom below but I’m not sure I can blame Dennis for it in all honesty. Fence panels and roof tiles are…
