Well I don’t know about you but I’m in need of soothing calm this week. I wonder if it’s the thought of lockdown ending? Or, if things go wrong  – not ending. You know when you are about to go on holiday and you suddenly feel exhausted or can’t sleep? It’s as if you have…

I never start this post with a theme in mind. It is a collection of pictures that have caught my eye over the week from various sources – usually Instagram – and I prefer to let the eye wander and see where we end up. This has the, hopefully, added advantage of appealing to more…

And welcome February – let’s hope by the end of this (short) month that things are looking up. Vaccination is proceeding and numbers are dropping and, what’s more, by the time the 28th rolls round those who have had their jabs should be on the way to being immune. So there are reasons to be…

By many accounts last week was a tricky one, not just because of events in America which will have touched some of you personally, but also the first week of a new year which was, for many us, spent in another lockdown with dire news reports coming in from every direction. So, as usual, I…

Last week a friend emailed to ask for advice about her knock-through sitting room. An idea which had seemed good at the time (two small children, too many small dark rooms) was proving irritating in the new lockdown life of 2020 with two adults and two larger children all at home all at the same…

No I don’t think I’m done with the florals and greens yet. Must be the onset of winter. And the clocks going back. Or the continuation of living indoors. Probably all of it. It’s hardly surprising that green, the colour both of nature and creativity, is drawing us all in this year and I have…

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…

Never never never would I have thought to paint the ceiling of a pale pink room in pale blue, but the the other day I was lying on our bed in our pale pink bedroom looking out of the window of the blue sky and thinking how pretty it was and then this turned up…

I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted. It’s not just working in difficult circumstances over the last four months – and I say that in the knowledge that I have only had to work at home not school at home as the teenagers have been largely left to their own devices. I assume it’s…
